Ciao! We just arrived in stunning Positano, and are so excited to explore the Amalfi Coast over the next few of days! It’s been a dream of mine to visit (Nick came on “business” without me last year…) so figured what better time than before baby arrives. I’ll definitely be blogging about our itinerary and hotels in a bit – from the comments on Instagram, it sounds like quite a few of you are planning travel here!
Vibrant floral sheath dress
I first saw a preview of Ann Taylor’s summer 2018 collection last winter, and wasted no time taking a screenshot to bookmark this floral dress. It did not disappoint … the vibrant print is just gorgeous in-person, slightly reminiscent of Dolce & Gabanna’s version. I sized up to a 4P to fit my widened ribcage (the skirt flares out in a gentle A-line below this point) and got the shoulder straps shortened. The same pattern also comes in tie-waist shorts, which my mom got and adores, and I’ve also been reaching for this flowy embroidered dress (runs roomy – I’m wearing my pre-pregnancy size xxs petite) non-stop! It turns out this collection was actually inspired by the coast of Italy. No surprise, as the pieces have been a compliment magnet here!
Comfiest travel sandals
I was warned about the steep slopes and endless stairs in Positano (my thighs are burning!), so for this trip I looked high and low for supportive, practical shoes that I could wear all day long. These sandals (6 colors) wouldn’t typically jump out to me, but I slipped my feet in and were SOLD! They have a very low wedge which I love for support (and much prefer to flats), a cushy insole, padded straps, and treaded soles. They’ve been very comfy with no breaking in needed at all. Length is true to size, but note the top band runs a little wide.
