When you think of a summer in Europe your heart can’t but help miss a beat. Visions of vespa’s, gelato, azure oceans, French Martini’s and bronzed men and women instantly make us grab for our phones to check for the miniscule possibility there might be an ‘affordable’ flight over. Failing that, a giant size suitcase we could stow ourselves away in, or even the possibility of a ‘Catch Me if you Can’ style plot. How hard can it be to pose as a pilot and a fly a plane?
Whether your budget extends to a summer in Europe or not, you can certainly channel the gorgeous Euro style for a much more affordable price! And have money left over for coffee and gelato. So prepare to embody Audrey for the ultimate Euro Summer Style!
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles. Audrey Hepburn

Skirt & Top
The crop top is by Showpo, you can pick it up on their US ($35), AUS ($45) & EU sites (€31) and the best part is you can wear a bra with it without showing the straps! The skirt is from Stelly, you can purchase a similar one (see below picks) for $25.32 USD and they ship to anywhere in the world, with free shipping in Australia on items over $50 (AUS). What surprised us was the quality, it has lovely thick material (not too hot) that gives it a weightiness not usually associated with skirts in this price range (even when they aren’t on sale). Not to mention it is exceptionally flattering.
We originally bought this bag from Tony Bianco for $89.95 AUD ($65 US) and whilst they are no longer in stock you can pick up a gorgeous Diane Von Furstenberg Bag at matchesfashion.com for around $130 US (see our picks below)
The Cicely wedges by Michael Kors are the ‘must have espadrille’. The woven platform tapers in to give a more feminine shape and a dressed down feel, however the thin gold straps add some subtle glamour. We can see ourselves prancing around Ibiza in these…PRANCING I tell you! You can still pick them up from Amazon.
The gorgeous brooch is from Louisa as are the bracelets. We picked them up in store for $16 AUD for the brooch and $12 for the bangles, although they often have deals on if you buy more pieces. The rings are from our personal collection, the pink sapphire and diamond trilogy ring you can find at Michael Hill (on the US and AU sites).
