Jet Set: Italy

Jet Set: Italy

"La dolce vida."

These three words sum up Italy very nicely. Italy's sweet life of fashion, beautiful vineyards, and hospitable locals make the country spectacular. If you're planning on taking a trip over the pond to visit this place or just wine connoisseurs who dream of it, we have some tips that will definitely make your trip wonderful.

1.  Wear comfortable shoes!

A lot of old Italian streets haven't been paved in... well ever. Most streets are still cobblestone, so make sure you dress accordingly! 

                                      
Amanda Summer Slip-on Sneaks ($28) Abby White & Gold Sandals ($20) 

We recommend wearing something flat for old cities. The sneakers also make a good option for rainy days! But, both of these simple flats make great travel companions to accompany colorful outfits. 

2. Italy summer is hot, like really hot

Guys, we're not kidding. Italian cities can reach up to 95º on summer days and in the north it's humid too. So, don't expect to escape the Ohio River Valley humidity over there. Pack your sunglasses and sunscreen and wear light fabrics to help ease the pain.

  Floral Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress ($40)

This dress is a super light weight fabric, so it's perfect for Italian summers. If you don't like the navy option, there is also a light pink one too. This dress is also a shift dress and you know what that means... you can eat all the pasta you want because no one will be able to tell. 

3. Drink a lot of wine

 You know we're always ready for some good wine. Especially Italian wine! Pack these wine essentials or just pretend you're in Italy already with these picks. 

First, read up on your wines with Kate Spade and Jancis Robinson.

Ciao!

Until next time,
