The countdown is ON! I leave for Italy in just over a week and I could not be more excited. I’ll be traveling in Rome and Florence before heading to Tuscany to wrap things up by teaching our Styling Your Life workshop. I fell in love with Italy last summer when I went for my first time. It feels like a dream to go back again! But what to wear?? Here’s my packing list for Italy in case you need some summer vacation inspiration!

WHIT Sonora Linen Maxi Dress

My Packing List for a Week in Italy

Tons of maxi dresses.

I can’t remember if I have ever shared this with you, but I don’t wear shorts! I actually believe that shorts are the least flattering thing a person can wear. Add to that my sensitivity about the scars on my leg and I just never buy a pair. Instead, I opt for dresses. And, of course, my favorite style is a maxi dress.

Honestly, this silhouette is really versatile, no matter where you’re going. You can dress a maxi dress up with heels and accessories or use it as a beach cover up. I also love it for really hot days or chillier days.

Some favorite maxi dresses I love right now:

Buttoned Flare Pants

At least one pair of crop pants.

I’ve been really into crop pants lately. They go well with all of my favorite shoes and have super borrowed-from-sailor vibes. Everlane makes my favorite wide leg crop pants by far… I basically want them in every color! I also have a few pairs of relaxed linen pants that I love to bring with me.

These crop pants are a great option:

Simple tank tops.

I am all about simple tank tops because they go with everything! Plus, they pack up really small. You can wear them with the crop pants or a cute patterned skirt. Also, they can double as sleepwear in a pinch. My personal favorite is the Everlane air cami. It’s sooooo soft.

Sensible shoes.

I always do a tonnn of walking when I travel and have come up with my personal faves that I always pack. My list consists of Birkenstocks, Allbirds, a pair of mules, and a nice-ish pair of low heels.

Farm Rio Paraiso Off-The-Shoulder Jumpsuit

Rompers and jumpers.

There’s something to be said for a single piece of clothing that creates an entire outfit! I loooove packing a few rompers or jumpers when I travel. If you opt for a printed onesie, you’ll even be able to better hide the inevitable travel wrinkles.

I’m loving these jumpers for summer travel:

A few lightweight layers.

The temperature can drop at night and I run cold, so I always bring a few layers. Typically I wear a lightweight sweater on the plane and top with a jean jacket. Then those pieces can be worn with other things during the course of my travels.

And accessories.

Typically, when I travel, I keep my style simple. I’m packing basic accessories that go with everything like a cross body bag and sunglasses. I usually travel with a scarf, but there are so many beautiful ones in Italy, I just buy one! Same with a straw hat.

What else should I pack?? I’m so excited!
