TRAVELING THROUGH ITALY FAVORITES

my boyfriend and i have been planning this big trip through italy for many many months now and it’s coming to an end very soon. i wanted to give you 25 of our very favorite things to do, eat, drink and see…along with some tips about traveling through italy. it’s been so memorable and i’m so happy we decided to just go for it!

thank you to my friends who gave me recommendations and i hope this list helps plan your next trip. it can be kinda stressful planning a longer trip (we did 1 month) but it’s so incredible to immerse yourself into a culture.

we started with 5 days in rome…

1. was one of our top favorite meals in rome. make a reservation at la salumeria (it’s busy!) and order la gricia pasta and the burrata with sun dried cherry tomatoes. the cheese and meat plates are also insanely good.

2. is an awesome little bakery in a popular square. grab a few slices (wish i could try them all! my favorite was the ham) and a beer and enjoy on the street while people watching. cheap price and amazing taste.

3. is a cozy little restaurant with eclectic decor and good food. i also really enjoyed walking around that neighborhood. please get the squash pie with melted fontina. so unique!

NOW TRAVEL: ROME >> POSITANO

it’s a little tricky to get to positano but not too bad. we knew that the pricy part of our trip was going to be in the south of italy. there’s so much tourism there and it feels like all the prices just go way up for hotels, food, and transportation. but it’s worth seeing for sure, so you gotta just let that part go. we chose 2 nights in positano and 2 nights in capri and ended up extending capri by two more days. it was definitely the right amount of time for us.

we took a train from rome to naples and then got a private car to drive us to the hotel. our hotel was gonna charge like 150 euros for the drive (around 1.5 hours) but we used this recommended driver that charged us 120 and she was really great. it’s gonna be your most expensive transportation probably. the roads are very windy with extreme cliffs, i am not sure i would recommend driving it yourself. but that’s just me.

you can email [email protected] and they wrote me back immediately. tell them what time you want to be picked up from the train and they handle it all from there.

STYLED / 26

do you have an underwear brand that you love? if so, please tell. i wore hanky panky for years and then got tired of the lace not staying flat against my skin. and then i tried Gap which were great for a bit but fell apart after about three months. i actually really love the from Madewell but i mostly wear those to bed.  i have lots of pretty less practical lacy pairs that are fun too but i’m looking for something everyday practical that can withstand some wearings and washings. and, now that it’s september it feels like it’s time to make sure we’re fully prepped and ready for getting cozy! i recently discovered which has sent me down a hole of wanting to completely update my PJ/lounge game.  below are some of their pieces and others that i’d love to sport this fall and winter! – joanie

 

 ($58) –  i’m a sucker for a classic sleeping set and i love the updated version of turning the shirt into a dress. also very useful because who likes sleeping in pants?

  ($58) – appropriate for day or night, love this little sleepy tee.

 ($68) – i like the matching set but also think the shorts are good on their own with one of your own sweatshirts or t-shirts thrown on top.

 ($98) –  i purchased a pair of these sweatpants in grey a long time ago and they are still my favorite. the taped ankle makes them appropriate to wear out or around the house when you have overnight guests.

 ($198) –  this feels like the perfect thing to bring on a romantic getaway, not too fussy, sexy and understated all at once.

 ($110) – love the classic style of these sweatpants in this soft neutral color with the kick of stars on the leg.

 ($75) – velvet is a trend that is here to stay for awhile so you might as well jump in and these jewel toned adidas pants are the perfect place to start!

($44) – i love a good champion or hanes sweatshirt so when todd snyder did a collaboration with them and updated some of champions classic pieces it was a match made in heaven. i love their classic zip and crew neck styles and also the cropped track pants. lots of good pieces on sale !

 ($168) – pretty and soft. would be great with a sweater or cardigan thrown on top!

STYLED / 25

whatcha up to this weekend? i’m headed to northern california for one of my dearest friend’s weddings (being held on a ranch!). excited to celebrate and see some old friends! i’m actually in the wedding so i don’t need to worry about what to wear but below are nine things i would wear to a fall wedding (because dressing for a wedding can be hard!). and, if you’re a bride can you please wear ?! i’m totally obsessed with it.

also, i recently got microbladding done on my eyebrows. it was a real stretch for me because i am almost zero maintenance when it comes to beauty, basically wash my face and go. so i was totally freaked out to do it but it couldn’t have been easier and totally painless. and, it made the most subtle but impactful difference. you can see my before and after picture . have you thought about doing it? i went to who is truly an eyebrow genius and the only person i’d trust with my eyebrows and a needle! anyway, if you’re considering it and scared like i was, don’t be, it really is so quick and easy. now, back to style! – joanie

 

 ($100) – i’d like to start by saying that in my opinion, depending on the formality of the wedding, that pants are a great option. pair them with a pair of formal looking shoes and a cool clutch and you’re golden.

 ($48) – classic and slightly form fitted, great with a red lip and a short hair cut or hair worn up.

($135) – i love this color and think that a cocoon dress is a very flattering option. the thing people forget about wedding attire is that you’re in it for such a long time and eating, drinking, dancing, etc. it’s got to be comfortable!

 ($60) – the little metallic detail on this is great and as the model is showing us, it is made to move!

 ($72) – the dark floral is perfect for fall and the dramatic off the shoulder is a pretty touch.

 ($158) – covered up on top but with a little flow in the skirt. the whimsical lip print is super sweet too!

 ($170) – i’m a sucker for Rebecca Taylor’s feminine pieces and i love the one shoulder, that it’s made in cotton and has an elastic waist!

 ($80) – when in doubt, wear an old dress from your closet and a new bag!

 ($90) – this navy jumpsuit is chic and has a built in necklace, no jewelry required!
