Thank you all so much for your fun comments on my Rome recap! Before moving on to Lake Como, I thought I’d share a few of my honeymoon outfits. You saw my packing inspiration here and here, and overall, I think it worked out pretty well! I did end up overpacking just a little bit, but we stuck to one stuffed, 50-pound checked bag, shared between the two of us, plus our weekender bags. I didn’t remember to take actual outfit pictures, so here are just a few snaps of what I ended up wearing!
In Rome, I wore a lot of dresses–it was pretty warm out, and since you can’t wear shorts into many churches and religious sites, dresses ended up being my go-to. If we were walking a lot, I paired them with an old pair of Zara flats that I’ve worn into the ground–but they’re nice looking and don’t give me blisters. If we weren’t going to any religious sites that day, I wore shorts and cute tops with Jacks, Soludos (my current favorite travel shoes, seen here!), or Sperry’s, depending on how much walking we would be doing. One of my favorite things I packed was my Kate Spade lemon purse! I bought it last year during a sample sale after falling in love with the print and saved it just for Italy. I loved the size (especially when I wanted to take my DSLR out and about), the strap, and the fun print that unexpectedly seemed to go with every outfit. It’s not in stock anymore, but you can find the same shape in a similar size here, here, and here.
As you can see, I also ended up wearing a lot of white–since about half my closet is white, this isn’t too surprising, but I do remember specifically wanting to look a little bit bridal :)
And here’s a little sneak peek of Lake Como! This was definitely the more casual part of our trip, and I lived in tank tops with cute detailing, shorts, and Jacks or Soludos. I bought the two tops below a few weeks before leaving, and I’ll be wearing them all summer–find them here and here. Both are on sale!
That scenery, y’all…take me back! Lots more of Lake Como coming Thursday :)
