My Italy Wardrobe Wish List

Travis and I are leaving for Italy in just seven weeks!  I can’t wait to go museum hopping, pasta & wine tasting, bike riding… but, I’m just as excited to put a fun wardrobe together :)

I rarely think ahead this much when it comes to packing for a vacation, but the idea of being in fabulous Italy makes me want to look put together throughout our trip.  Here’s what I’ve got on my wish list so far…

1) Chambray dress 3) Polka dotted sweater 5) White skinnies

2) Boyfriend shorts 4) Denim jacket 6) Chevron maxi skirt

One of the best packing tips I’ve heard is that it’s best to choose a bunch of mix & match pieces in toned-down colors, then add some pop with easy-to-pack accessories.  Also on my Italy wish list: the perfect red dress.  (You’ll have to help me choose at a later date!)

Are you going on any summer vacations?  Got any packing “rules” you follow?  What do you think of my choices above?  Spill in the comments!

    Pack shirts or tees that you can wash in the sink at night and will be dry by the next morning. Don’t take more than 2 pair of shoes including the pair you wear. Take a sturdy pair for walking on cobblestones and biking and a pair of dressy sandals. Remember if you forget something you can always buy it in Italy!!

    Try to pack light because you’re going to have to carry everything yourselves.

    Yes, those Italian streets can be slippery so do take sturdy shoes (or buy some there !) Italy was a lot warmer, but more casual than I thought it would be. Also note that some of the religious sites (Vatican for example) you have to have your shoulders and knees covered. Keep a scarf with you to cover your sholders, if needed. Ciao!
