One of the pretty dresses I had to pack for Spain & Portugal was this printed Free People Milana maxi dress. I feel like I rarely wear a maxi dress and I don’t know why. They’re so comfortable and easy to wear! They’re also insanely chic. Just throw them on and go. I love the open back of this one too. Paired with my Amazon straw bag which was the perfect last-minute purchase, this outfit was complete. And did I mention, it’s only $25? It also comes in a few other shapes too.
This maxi dress is also on MAJOR clearance for only $50. You can shop it here in several colors!
In Seville, it hit 100 degrees each day we were there. I still can’t believe we didn’t die of heat. The city knows how to handle it though. The little streets full of cafes and shops were lined with canopies to keep the streets shaded. It made all the difference. Since it’s a dry heat, the shade is vastly different in temperature. Unlike the south, when it’s humid and you’re in the shade, you’re still sweating profusely. I’ll definitely be wearing this maxi dress before summer is officially over. And may even snag it in another color now that’s it is so cheap!

The Best Travel Bag
This bag isn’t SUPER functional in that you can carry your camera and all your things in it when traveling. However, it is the PERFECT bag to pack for when you just need your phone, credit card and a little lipstick. I now always pack this bag with me when I travel anywhere warm. It’s tiny enough to pack (and I stuff my jewelry in there or a few hair accessories) and helps to dress up any outfit. It also comes in a few shapes too. The rectangle is a fun change and fits my giant iPhone!
