Since I travel a lot I’ve come up with a few outfit formulas that always work for me. You don’t need to over pack to look stylish while on vacation. My travel basics include the perfect pair of jeans, a few lightweight knits, comfortable sandals and lots of accessories!
My hotel was very close to the Trevi Fountain (5 min walk) so as soon as I arrived and checked in, I walked over to the Trevi. I had never seen a place so packed with people. Selfie sticks were sticking up all over the place, people holding ice cream cones, policemen, and a whole lot of tourists and families. I’m not a fan of people in the background of my photos so I knew if I wanted to get a shot in front of the Trevi with no people in my picture, I would have to get there extra early.
Nothing says bring me a limoncello por favore quite like a romantic floral dress. I’ve streamlined my vacation packing by including lots of dresses that easily transition from day to night. The moment I saw this Bronx & Banco dress on Revolve.com I knew I needed it for my trip to Italy; a one shoulder, cut-out waist, and high slit are exactly what you need in the warm Mediterranean air.
Yes, I went all the way to Italy and managed to find a blooming Bougainvillea flower wall because after all I am obsessed with and appreciate gorgeous flower walls! For my summer vacation style along the Italian coast, I opted for a casual-chic top with flowing cap sleeves matched with a printed draped midi skirt from Silvia Tcherassi.
The Amalfi coast is an absolute dream-especially when you experience it while hanging out on a boat admiring the colorful coastline from afar. I am not sure if it’s the gorgeous pastel colored structures built into the hillside or the view that reminded me of a Slim Aarons photograph capturing the jet set elite.
A black sand beach in Positano obviously requires a matching beach outfit. When it comes to summer style I don’t shy away from wearing black, not even to the beach. To me black is chic, elegant, and always appropriate. I always tell people “when in doubt, throw on all black”
