I just got back from another beautiful work trip to Sardinia shooting content for the lovely Hannah Strafford Taylor for her LTK Takeover. Italy is probably my favorite country to visit, so I was so excited to see Sardinia for the first time. We stayed in Porto Cervo, a beautiful traditional coastal village right on the water — and while we shot loads of amazing photos (can’t wait to share more once my work website finally launches) I definitely got to enjoy the beauty of Sardinia too!

One of the highlights was taking a boat to Bonifacio, Corsica, and Madelena. Growing up on boats, I always find being on the water so soothing and peaceful! (Lets just hope I still feel that way after 7 days of Croatia Yacht Week 🙂 ) We spent a whole day at White Beach, enjoyed the gorgeous views and bright blue waters, then for our last evening after a little golden hour shoot, had the most amazing dinner at Novikov just steps from our Hotel (Cervo Hotel). I had been waiting and waiting to wear this stunning Alexis dress. I bought it back in February when I was in LA for my friend’s baby shower and because it definitely calls for a “moment” — Sardinia was perfect. I’m obsessed with the color, love the flowy beautiful fabric, and it’s wrap style which is always so so flattering and comfortable. For the cobblestones and docks I stuck with my go-to Gianvito Rossi block heels — They’re an investment but really do go with everything (Wore them to Polo, Henley Boat Race, for work, baby showers, etc). Jewelry wise, I just went with a simple Mother of Pearl Gold Hoop earring from Zara and my go to glowy summer makeup — Illuminating tinted moisturizer (“natural”), cream sheer blush, and pillow talk lipstick + La Mer lip balm.

I’ll definitely be wearing this dress again! It’s amazing for rehearsal dinners, summer vacations, dressier dinners, and really anything you need a nice summer dress for! I’ve linked it HERE , it also comes in a nice skirt version, the same style in a striking red, + linked lots of statement dresses by the same designer!

Wish me luck — I have a hectic few days before I’m off to Croatia at 4am Saturday morning…. My SWIM SHOP is filled with lots more summery vacation options, and I’ll be linking all of my Croatia looks with and hopefully not too long after here on the blog!
