One place I’ve always wanted to visit is Italy. And now the time has finally arrived and we are taking the girls with us. So today’s post is all about what I’m packing for Italy in the summer.
Italy, specifically Rome and Venice, has long been on my travel bucket list. Technically, I have been to Italy once when we went to Portofino many years ago at the end of a trip to France. However, we were only there 2 days so it hardly counts. We were supposed to go to Rome and the Amalfi Coast a few years ago for our 20th anniversary and then changed to the Maldives.
We will be visiting Rome, Florence and Venice. If you have tips, I’d love them! There are times I plan ahead and times I don’t. We only booked this a few weeks ago and I’m flying by the seat of my pants but gathering all the info I can from friends and the web. Please leave me a comment below with your best travel tips, shopping recommendations and restaurant suggestions.
The weather is going to be 90s to high 60s. We are excited to get a 10-20 degree break from this Texas heatwave! I’m bringing this travel dress for the plane that feels put together but is so comfortable to wear.
I’ve packed light dresses like this and this for day, pretty frocks like this and this for dinner. I know we’ll have a few really warm days in Rome so a great white T and cute skirt or cute T-shirt dresses will be perfect.
As for shoes, I’m a sandal girl so I’m bringing these and these. Someone told me rubble soles were better than leather so we’ll see! I’ll also bring a comfortable pair of sneakers but not sure I’ll wear them much. If my feet are hot, I’m hot.
This is my go-to bag for traveling especially with my family. It is large enough for wallet, phone, guide book (love these!), rain jacket, and more. But small enough to still be stylish. I love the crossbody strap. I’m also bringing a small crossbody that can double as a bag for night. I’m sure I’ll pop this in at the last minute!
You can shop the boutique at the bottom of the post!
