I’m heading to Italy for the first time two weeks and am using it as the perfect opportunity to do some shopping. Because, duh. There are so many amazing summer sales right now – I still can’t say goodbye to my off the shoulder dresses and lace up sandals, but all good things must come to an end. I’m making room in my closet for cozy knits and boots. Luckily, I plan on stretching out my endless summer in the Amalfi Coast. Here’s what I want to fill my suitcase with:
Anything white. White is by far my favorite color to wear, and the best vacation color. I’m envisioning linen tunics for lazy days by the beach and simple slips for nighttime.
Denim shorts. Vintage Levi’s are the way to go. After a year of lusting over them, I finally got a pair by RE/DONE and let’s just say they are so worth the price. They fit perfectly and will last for years to come. #momjeansforlife
Bathing suits. Two pieces and one pieces galore. I especially love one pieces because they double as a bodysuit to wear with a skirt or shorts. September is supposed to still be pretty warm in Amalfi Coast, so we’re hoping to catch some sun.
Lots of dresses. Everyone knows the easiest vacation outfit is a dress or romper. Both are outfits that are one and done. You can get dressed and be on your way for the day in 10 minutes. Dresses are especially helpful when you’re trying to only pack a carry on. Also.. Planning on leaving lots of room for all the delicious carbs in Italy 😉 so definitely nothing skin tight.
Hats. My favorite accessory that helps you look put together instantly. I wear this one by Lack of Color ALL the time.
Free People is definitely one of my go-to brands for vacation pieces. I like to go to the Free People website for the best selection of gauzy tunics and light knit dresses. This particular tunic is a little on the shorter side but makes for the cutest swim cover up.
For those of you that have been to Italy – what to pack, wear, do, and eat? You guys always have the most amazing recs!!
And how are you ending your summer? Any fun Labor Day plans??
