Ciao Bella!

Ever since JP and I accepted the invitation from out besties, Ryan and Sara, to join them on their Italian adventure in September all I can think about is...WHAT AM I GOING TO PACK!!?? We are talking about most of the most fashionable places on earth here and I need to look good! I remember when I studied abroad in Florence my Sophomore year of college and feeling so inadequate the whole time as I watched jealously, insanely beautiful women strut down the street as though they were on a catwalk (but simply headed to the market) decked out in the chicest garb. I learned alot of things about fashion during those four months. Italian style is so effortless, simple and romantic all at the same time. As much as I wish I could bring like 10 suitcases, we will be traveling around quite a bit so I want to try to pack as light as possible. This means I will have to bring pieces I can mix and match, and easy accessories to transform outfits from casual to dressy and day to night. Here are a few pieces that I feel I will have to snatch up before the trip. What do you think?
Polka dot dress - Topshop
Fenton/Fallon Carrington chaina and needle necklace - J.Crew
Sleeveless waistcoat - Topshop
Pink crystal sunglasses - Topshop
Black strappy sandals - Madewell
Black silk modal tank - Alternative Apparel
Sequin drizzle tank - J.Crew
Déjeuner silk short (copper)- J.Crew
Watercolor skirt - H&M
Lucca Couture Chiffon Scallop Short - Urban Outfitters
KNT By Kova & T Pleated Mary Dress - Urban Outfitters
Tom's canvas shoes - Toms
1773 Belted Straw Fedora - Urban Outfitters
Black Hayden Wedges - Dolce Vita


  1. love love love the skirt and wedges...tres chic!

  2. LOVE the polka dot dress, and the chiffon scallop short (very Chloe). And you know I love those glasses - still thinking about them. Ha ha to the Toms - I thought you said you would never wear them!!!

    Beautiful choices, all, and practical - you could do a lot with each of those pieces. Bravissima! (Is that a word?)

  5. yeah girl, blog it up! it's about time!

    love it all. I may have to get the polka dot dress for myself, those sleeves are amazing. And don't forget about all the deadly cobblestone we treacherously endeavored day in and day out... pack enough flats (they also take up much less room in the suitcase)
