In an attempt to get my wardrobe together for Italy, I’ve been on the hunt for easy, light-weight dresses. While I do plan to infuse a few white, cream and lighter options, I did want at least one casual black dress that could be dressed up or down.

Last year, I wore this one from Free People all summer long; sadly, I won’t fit into it this year, but if you’re on the hunt, it’s another great option. I own it in several colors!

I topped off this outfit off with my new pair of sunglasses from Colors In Optics. They’re oversized, so Hollywood Glam and a nice switch from the Celine pair that I always reach for. I plan to bring them along to Lake Como and pretend I’m going to hang out with George Clooney and Amal and be utterly glamorous!

      Hi Abby,
      That sounds amazing! Although I’m not sure why I wrote Capri! haha. We are actually going to Lake Como and Tuscany, but I guess my mind was on Capri. Def will save your rec for next time Thank you!

    Love this! Just one thing, you might find wearing black, in Italy, during the summer is impossibly hot. Light colors will be best. I learnt that the hard way! Lol

      Hi Andrea,
      Good point! We’re going at the end of June so hopefully it won’t be as hot, but definitely something to take into consideration. Thank you!
