When I travel to several different cities in one trip, figuring out what to pack can be very challenging. I have to take everything from the weather to the vibe and mood of the cities into account when picking out looks and pieces for each. This last trip I took, I was in London, Cannes, and Rome and each of the cities couldn’t be more different.
In London, I wore sleek and cool looks with a bit of ladylike edge. (See my London Looks here, here and here!) In Cannes, I knew I was going to be by the beach but I wanted to kick up the glamor and put it into high gear, so I wore a lot of skirts and dresses. (See my Cannes looks here!)
So when it came time for Rome, I was extra excited. I had been in Rome for only 24 hours last year for the Fendi runway show, and all I could remember were the gorgeous colorful walls. There were rusty pinks, yellows, and oranges so I knew I wanted to wear as much color as I possibly could to match the city.
On the first day in Rome, I wore a gorgeous yellow two-piece set (similar here). It was effortless, gorgeous and chic. Plus, I had my very first Italian pasta experience in that look! I’ll never forget it. On my last day, I’m not going to lie, I was running out of outfits because I had been living out of a suitcase for two weeks at that point! I decided to go with something that I would wear in LA: jeans, a chic blouse, and booties.
I was pretty dressed up the entire trip so I was so happy to be casual for a change. Looking back, I don’t recommend wearing heels on cobblestone streets! Lol!
So… if you’re going to pack for multiple cities, keep in mind the weather and vibes, but don’t forget a casual and chic t-shirt and jeans (you can thank me for this tip later)!
I’m so excited to be going back to Rome for another special project in the next few days, but even more excited to be bringing Allen with me. Stay tuned!
