Hello from Lecce, Italy friends! Brian is started business school at the end of the month, so we planned a trip for his final vacation of the year, or two 🙂 Now not too many people have heard of Lecce, Italy, but it’s a hidden gem! Located in the heel of the boot, Lecce is located on the Adriatic Sea side of the country. The scenery is amazing, the pasta is to die and the beaches are crystal clear! I can’t wait to share more about the trip over the next week – be sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat! Today’s look is just what I needed for our first day on the trip – this Red Plum Floral Print Maxi for sightseeing in Lecce!
Today we visited a few different landmarks in Lecce and took in all of its history! It was such a beautiful place and all the architecture was so romantic. There were so many charming alleys and shops – the buildings were painted in so many different colors with lush decorated terraces. We learned that the women of Lecce used to garden on their patios in order to meet men in their area as they were allowed to otherwise! How Romeo and Juliet is that!
I needed something that was easy to move around in, but also kept me cool because it’s legit 1,000 degrees in Italy. Again, not complaining, just stating a fact. This Red Plum Floral Print Maxi has some great movement that is perfect for those super hot days – I needed something that made its own breeze! To keep the look simple, I styled it with this straw boater hat – it’s an easy way accessorize the dress without over accessorizing.
I couldn’t leave home with these nude sandals with a gold heel – I have worn them nearly EVERY DAY this summer. They go with just about anything! I tried my hardest to pack only in a carry-on – I failed after I packed the first three outfits. I’m the worst when it comes to packing – I pack everything I own in fear of FOMO. Hey, a girl needs her options right?
Ok so side note, I’m building out my travel content on the blog to bring your more posts on where to go, where to stay and more importantly, what to wear! Check out my travel page here and watch out for updates!
Have a great day and stay tuned for more updates on our trip!
