I’ve mentioned before that I love planning outfits for vacations, and I have a feeling that my honeymoon will be my favorite trip to pack for yet! Since we’re going to be doing a pretty big variety of activities–from walking around the city, to visiting churches, to going on boat trips, I’m doing my best to plan extra strategically. When packing for a long trip, a few tips I like to keep in mind are to pack in a similar color scheme (or one that can be easily mixed and matched), and to bring pieces that can be worn in multiple ways. I also always come up with specific outfits before the trip so that I can see any holes in my packing list–I hate getting to my destination and coming up with the perfect look for the day, only to find that a belt or necklace that would complete it is back at home!
Fingers crossed, the temperature in Rome will be perfect when we’re there–warm, but not too humid yet. My goal is to look polished, spring-appropriate, and chic, while still being comfortable enough for lots of walking and time outside. When I sifted through some of the looks I’ve gathered for inspiration, a few themes were readily apparent: ladylike dresses, button down shirts, and of course, lots of stripes.
With that in mind, here are a few pieces that I own and will be packing, or have put on my wish list!
Stay tuned for my packing list and inspiration for the second week of our trip (in Lake Como!) next! :)
