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 we figured what better time than before baby arrives.
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 Caslon sandals (6 colors) wouldn’t typically jump out at 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.
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!
