When traveling I am the absolute worst at getting to the airport and having to open my bags in front of a glaring line of people waiting just so I can shuffle my clothes around in attempts to meet the 50 pound weight cap allowed for checked baggage. So many of us have been there.. Pulling one shoe out at a time and individually weighing it to see if it’s the culprit giving you that one last pound.
So this trip I got to thinking..
10 days.. Countless dinners, excursions, beach days, sail days and photo shoots.. How on earth was I going to pack that itinerary into 50 pounds. After pondering the thought while watching the latest on CNN one word came to mind.
Yep.. I said it… Basics.. A few basic pieces to mix and match with a few stand out pieces can take your packing from daunting to dashing. Okay not sure that last sentence made any sense but it sounds slightly poetic so I am going with it.
With that said this day in Sorrento, Italy was a perfect example of how I used basics to jazz up my look. ..And yep I just used the phrase “jazzed up” much to my own dismay. We will get straight to the point shortly I promise!
Ahh here we are.. The point!
I wore this denim jacket (which happens to be a men’s jacket) more than a few times on the trip including on the airplane. With a simple halter dress the denim across my shoulders added a touch of chic to a very beachy look. Especially handy for exploring the cute streets of Sorrento and having what just may be the best pasta dish I have ever had. (See photo below)
