So I have some exciting news – in just three weeks I’m going to be taking a little trip…to Italy! I’ll be able to share all the details soon, but to say I’m doing a happy dance is an understatement. Italy has a very special place in my heart. I traveled there for the first time at 17 and the place just stuck with me. I studied Italian all through college was able to study abroad there. I also returned for my honeymoon. But I haven’t been back since.

I also haven’t done any major travel since having entering mom-land – which means I need some serious packing help! My closet is not exactly jet-setter ready at the moment. So I’m frantically banking style inspiration and deciding what to add to my cart.

This look feels like the perfect look to spend an afternoon window shopping. A white-leg white pant and field jacket layered over a tee is a refined but laid back look (san heels. I’d probably wear these sandals instead).

I’m not sure I’m feeling brave enough to rock a crop top post-baby, this chic top feels so Italy appropriate.

A long short, chic flat and a great sleeveless top – I’m finally considering the off the shoulder trend – feels like a cool way to explore, wine taste or simply enjoy an afternoon of cappuccino and people watching at a cafe.

A timeless white dress topped with a button down tied at the waist is a perfect for an long lazy lunch that leads into a long night out.

And you never know when you might need something a little special. A flowing maxi dress is an easy, comfortable way to make a dramatic statement.

  1. Italians are pretty dressy so err on the side of formality. But you don’t want to ruin your trip with a twisted ankle on a cobbled street, so ballerinas and flats are smart.

      1. Wow! Looks great, hoping there’s no kids/lots of washing opportunity- or you less messy than me when I’m enjoying gelato & pizza & other yummy foods- I’d be a wreck in all the white!

        1. I’m a sucker for white – and always carry a Tide stain pen 🙂
