travelin garb.

in less than one little month
we will be in orvieto, italy.
my family. our dearest family friends. my lovie. and me.
for two whole pasta-eating. vineyard-touring. bicycle-riding. weeks.


i have only been to italy once before. and that was six years ago.
it was such a memorable trip, as it was the last trip we took with our sweet patrick.
naturally, we can hardly wait to go back to the sites we enjoyed with our precious boy.
during that european trip, 
we made history that is far richer than any history book could deliver.

history that looks like this.

thats our sweet patrick in the red.
my darling brother.

and while i am certain that bittersweet moments traveling through italy
will bring the sting of tears to our eyes.
i can hardly wait to explore the country again.

we are staying in a villa in orvieto.
the villa sleeps nineteen. its like a big slumber party.

doesn't it look like the street from under the tuscan sun?! 
i am so excited to submerse myself with the culture in the italian countryside. 

and of course,
my traveling garb is totally on my mind.

i have always been a terribly awful packer.
i never pack enough of the right things. and i always pack too many wrong things.
so, this time i am really going to plan out what will go in my little suitcase. 

i want to look euro-chic.
you know, casual. breezy. simple. chic. 
so i am thinking linen pants. paper bag skirts. fitted tees.
my go-to for this look is the one-and-only emerson fry.

this darling skirt is tip-top on my list.
love the lightweight texture. love the simplicity.
perfectly street-chic in every way.
plus it looks so comfy. 
great for traveling. walking. wandering. through italia. 

i adore this pink colored skirt.
and i need these camel sandals to go with it.

and of course, a kelly green skirt would be lovely, too.
i love the simplistic lines of this skirt. they are universally flattering for all ladies.
plus, the two button waist line is cute to boot.

if this isn't summertime euro-chic, i don't know what is.
love. love. love the midi length of this dress.
the lines are classic. the colors are meant to be donned in tuscany.
and again. those camel sandals. 
must. have. in. my. closet. 

are you loving these street-chic looks as much as i am?
if yes. and of course you said yes.
you must see all that miss emerson fry has to offer.
