Packing for Italy

Today I am sharing my packing list for Italy, which may just be my favourite inspiration board to date! I’ve read neutrals are key when travelling abroad in order to mix and match various clothing items and avoid overpacking. Navy and white has and always will be my favourite colour combination so when I began shopping for my trip I stuck to mainly blues and whites. I was obsessed with this dress after I saw it on one of my favourite bloggers last summer. It has since sold out, but I lucked out and found one on eBay. I’m a huge fan of Goodnight Macaroon and purchased a few items recently including this navy jumpsuit. These chic cognac, gladiator sandals from Clarks are so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them to work this week to break them in and it feels like I am walking on air. I would definitely recommend Clarks for anyone seeking stylish, supportive shoes. Boat hats are very much in style this summer and this one is perfect for Italy. Doesn’t it remind you of the wide-brim hats the gondoliers wear, along with their striped shirts, down the canals in Venice?

Can’t wait to meet you Italy!
