Vacation Look 3 + Colors of the Old City

Romper - Topshop (similar here)//Belt - H&M//Sandals - Sam Edelman

Kyoto is the old city of Japan.  As soon as you arrive here, you immediately feel the sense of peace and calm that envelopes this city.  The centuries of history that are embedded in these grounds are palpable.  It is a place where you can get in touch with old Japan, and all of its forests and temples.  The surroundings narrate visual stories of a strong culture, rich with colorful art and beautifully crafted materials, and I wanted to share some of its beauty with you.

This romper is one of my old favorites, not only because of it's versatility, but also because I remember exactly when I bought it- the day Topshop came to the US and opened right here in NYC.  For that reason it's got a special place in my heart.  It's an easy piece to throw on for travel, and can be worn throughout the summer to city rooftop parties or more casual barbecues.  I'll usually belt it, which is necessary with a piece that's both loose-fitting and all print, in order to break things up and keep from looking frumpy.  

Do you have an old favorite that you like to wear all summer?
