Positano Dreaming

Good morning you guys!! This dress *might* be my favorite dress that I packed for Italy… I just love the embroidered details and the small pom pom detailing. And of course, the fact that it’s pink! It actually has really come in handy because it’s quite cool here – we were here exactly two years ago and we remember being so hot and living in shorts and bathing suits the whole time! The temperatures are unusually cool in Positano right now so we have been bundling up a little bit haha. Thankfully this dress has sleeves and is longer so it feels really nice in the cool weather. By the way, for those thinking of ordering, I’m wearing the XS and it fits perfectly (and I’m 5’3 and a half!).

On another note, I will be seriously surprised if I don’t come home ten pounds heavier hahah… we’ve been having nutella croissants every morning, pizza for lunch and pasta and wine for dinner… every. single. day. Mmmmmm. 🙂

    Gorgeous!!! Can you please tell me more about your xoxo diamond ring on your left hand? I love the combination! Enjoy your trip:)

    Gorgeous! I’ve always been scared to order from Chicwish and other random online companies because of the return reviews I read. Do you have trouble with this?

    • I’ve never tried to return something from Chicwish! Sometimes it is hit or miss, so you kind of have to know when you’re ordering that you’re taking a risk! This dress is definitely high quality, but I can’t speak for the other items on their site!

  14. Hi Caitlyn,

    Granted I go to Positano and stay for 3 weeks every summer, I have the most difficult time packing. I totally overpack as I like to have different outfits for each day. I know, it’s a bit overboard. This year I promised I will pack a lot less and do more mixing and matching. Can you share with us what you pack for your trips to Italy? You always look so amazing and I am inspired by many of your outfits!



    • Hey Inez, Unfortunately I have the same problem as you!!! I am a chronic overpacker. We were only in Italy one week and I brought two checked bags and a carry-on suitcase, haha. If you are trying to mix and match some more, I would look for clothing items with neutral colors that mix well, and then add color with some small accessories like earrings! But three weeks is a really long time and if I were you I would want lots of outfits too 🙂 Sorry if that isn’t helpful at all haha!

  15. Got to love a dress as beautiful as its wearer. You look amazing! There are few pom pom outfits I like. This dress, however, is a major exception. You are totally lovely from top to bottom here.
