Lo non parlo Italiano!

Hello ! Or really should I say “Bonjourno” !

We purchased our flights for our summer vacation! Round-trip ticket to Roma! In the three weeks while we are away we will also being making a nice little jaunt up to Sweden to see some friends in the fashionable city of Stockholm. 

I have been to Italy once before back in 2012 where I visited Rome and Pisa but really it was the tip of the iceberg in that trip, more of an “apperativo” of Italia. As this time we will have an ample amount of time, I am already day dreaming at the possibilities…sun bathing in the Almafi coast, rowing around Venice, seeing the statue of David in Florence and soaking up the romantic history in Roma!

I have already been warned by the boyfriend that we need to pack light, which I am fine with! This doesn’t mean I will sacrifice chic, travel style but rather I need to be strategic and plan it out properly 🙂 Here some things that are inspiring what I will bring!

  1. This hat is too cute! If you’re like me you will turn into a tomato or a lobster as soon as the sun hits you. Keep covered, wear a Brigitte Daydreamer hat ! Its so adorbs 🙂
