Ciao from Ravello! Alex & I are staying here with Revolve this week for a few fun-filled days. I’m sure most of you know how special Italy is to us, we have been lucky to have spent many a summer here as it’s become a bit of a tradition for us to celebrate my birthday in Positano so we will be switching off for a bit of a vacation after our work commitments in Ravello. It will be so nice to unwind after a hectic couple of months and prepare ourselves for next season which is already set to be very busy!
I thought I would put together a new packing list as you guys seemed to love the one I put together for Ibiza and Italy has a completely different, super relaxed vibe to it. I feel as though I can experiment with prints and patterns more than I usually do here, as Italy is bustling with life and great energy which I like to try to replicate within my looks. I often play around with yellow, blue and pink colour combinations as some of our favourite Italian locations have these tones woven into their scenery and stunning ceramic tiles, which makes for a great photo!
This Cecile Bahnsen dress is such a perfect buttery yellow colour and I can’t get enough of the voluminous cut that Bahnsen is so recognized for. It’s ideal for exploring the local towns teamed with comfy Gucci flip flops and statement white Versace sunnies, but it works just as well for hot summer’s evenings dressed up with strappy sandals.
I mentioned how much I love Christopher Esber previously and I recently had a little shopping spree as the brand’s new designs are particularly good, including their swim range. This lime bikini top and bottom set is modern and fresh for beach day looks – though be careful of the tan lines. 😉
When it comes to accessorising, I tend to go for fun jewellery for pool and beach days in order to protect my more precious pieces from chlorine or sand. Shell and pearl inspired jewellery like this necklace from Timeless Pearly or these Missoma earrings are great options to take your vacation style to the next level.
