Good morning from Rome!  I’m going to be posting just a bit from our trip while we are gone so you can follow our adventures on Instagram and Instagram Stories in real time.  I’ll be doing several Wanderlust Wednesdays on the blog when we return and sharing all the details on our Italian adventure!

One of my favorite style tips for travel and everyday is to purchase pieces that can do double duty like this dress I found at Clotheshorse Anonymous.  Here you can see that I’ve styled it two ways.  Pieces that you can wear day and night with different accessories or even as a chic cover up like I’ve shown here are no-brainer purchases.

Clotheshorse is filled with great pieces like this right now that are also transitional.  The wedgewood blue and chocolate brown combination on light weight fabric make a a wear now and wear later piece as well.  They have so many popular designer lines in the store right now.

Having items in your wardrobe like this are perfect packing pieces as well.  I took this dress to Mexico to wear to dinner one night and then a cover up the next day.  I didn’t get a good photo so I didn’t show it in this post.  These photos do the dress much more justice anyway.  I can’t wait to wear it again!

Don’t forget you can access all my favorites from the #Nsale on the menu bar above and in these posts.  Some things have sold out but people order multiple sizes and more than they’ll keep so with returns you never know what you’ll find!  This post has lots of my favorites still in stock.

Also, don’t forget if you are looking for a designer item, you can create a Wish List.  Clotheshorse is one of my favorite places to get a Designer Handbag for a Fraction of the Original Price.  I just saw a darling Chanel and new Prada!

Be sure to leave me your best travel tips, shopping recommendations and restaurant suggestions for Rome, Florence and Venice below!
