After the winter in London you almost forget what warmth is. You start wondering if you will ever be able to go outside without a coat. Feeling the sun on your arms and legs is an amazing feeling. I loved the winter days we spent in Havana – hot sun and warm breeze. This is one of my beach dresses so although I have owned this white crochet dress forever you may have never seen it on the blog.
We spent about three whole days walking around Old Havana. And I am still not sure or satisfied that we saw everything we wanted to see. I wrote a post about some practical tips and one about the beautiful cars.
So I’ll admit I wasn’t happy about the black and brown mix of accessories I had to wear for this post. This was the only bag I had and the shoes were the only ones left by the time I got to Havana. I threw out 3 pairs of shoes since they were all on their last legs. (Ok that was an amusing coincidence!) I have had these black ones forever and I have been quite impressed with them. They lasted almost 5 years or so!
Outfit details: white crochet dress with slit from Stradivarius (for a list of similar dresses scroll down), black leather flats from H&M (found this fantastic one in silver), brown cross-body bag from House of Fraser (worn with a slip dress and simple jeans and a tee), straw hat from can’t remember (sorry but this could work too) and pendant from Bali.
This white crochet Stradivarius dress was a good find but of course, it not available anymore but I managed to find something very similar – a long one and a shorter one. I liked the one I am wearing as well as these ones I have picked since they are good for the beach but you can wear them off the beach too. Most crochet ones are only appropriate for beach wear which is a little annoying because for me that would mean wearing it no more than 5 days a year!
