Someone recently asked me about my favorite vacation, and without a doubt, it was Italy last summer. For so many reasons, it was one of the most incredible trips I’ve been on. It was my first time visiting the country, it was my first stint at traveling alone internationally, and it was simply one of those trips that feeds your soul. I loved Rome and Florence, but unsurprisingly so, I absolutely fell in love with the Amalfi Coast! Ever since I left last July, I’ve been trying to figure out when I can go back.
I picked up this dress a few months ago thinking it would be perfect for summertime in Italy, but I guess I’ll be saving it for next year! So much has changed in 2017… It’s a (few) post(s) for a different day, but my priorities have shifted a bit since I hinted at spending the summer in Europe. I had it all mapped out… Leaving next week and getting back in two months, right before Labor Day. The coast of Italy, Capri, the south of France, Croatia… It would have been a dream! But summertime really is the best in Chicago and I missed a lot of it while traveling last year. I have a few weddings and work trips planned (and I’m still going to Croatia in August!), but my goal is to actually spend a good chunk of time living in this city I call home this summer. Next summer, though, I’m coming for ya, Europe!
