You want to know the secret to surviving the summer heat when you are not into showing off your butt cheeks by wearing tiny shorts and micro crop tops that look like they belong to your little sister? It's called linen. The fabric is woven from the flax plant and therefore breathes remarkably well and helps you stay cool. Although linen wrinkles easily, which is a bit annoying, the positive characteristics supersede the negative, such as the comfortable feel and pretty look.

For me, having linen in my closet is an absolute must and not negotiable. I already convinced my boyfriend to stack up on linen pieces (mostly shirts), seeing as Uniqlo has some great variations. Especially when traveling, it can be a lifesaver for the hot and humid climate. I wore this outfit in Vienna about a week ago where we stayed at the Kempinski hotel as every year. On our way out we quickly snapped a few pictures, as I wanted to present you two new pieces from my wardrobe: this striped linen dress and my suede Gucci loafers.

I bought the dress a few days after my 24th birthday from a small shop in Berlin called "Storia". It is located on Rosenthaler Straße and it was actually the first time we went in there. It looks plain from the outside but I am happy Julien dragged me in so I could score this beautiful striped dress. I love all things stripy and since the dress was on sale as well, there was no way to stop me.
