“I am all about the lace-up craze and the Ily Top is the perfect rendition to wear by day over a bikini and by night with my favorite pair of distressed denim. Packing for weekend trips is all about items that multitask.”  Nicole

“This Aliza Dress is so romantic with a midi hem, pale floral pattern and sultry leg slit. Topped with a floppy sun hat this outfit was made for getting lost in Venice.” Jill

“Summer to me means a healthy glowing tan and all white ensembles. I never leave for a weekend without packing my favorite Gabriella Romper. The soft cotton is irresistible and the off-the-shoulder top is very on trend for the season.” Sarah

“The floral pattern on the Lizeth Pants hide the fact that they’re actually just as comfortable as my PJ’s. Paired with a crop top this is my go-to summer look for exploring a new city.” Shannon

“The Jada Dress is a summer staple with a loose, comfy fit and flirty little details like the spaghetti straps and ruffled hem. The ditsy floral pattern is just girly enough, but I thrown on a leather jacket at night to toughen the look up.” Amanda

“I wear my Beccah Top constantly and have it in both white and chambray. I pair this ruffly beauty with everything from denim shorts to a full A-line skirt.” Danielle

“This Ayara Hoodie Cardigan is my long bus ride secret weapon. It is perfect to cozy up in if the air gets too chilly and can double as a robe when I am getting ready for the day in a hostel.” Nikki

“Hot summer days in Florence must be combated with loose shorts and these classic black and white checkered Eve Shorts are my favorite pair. They can easily be dressed down with sneakers and a tee or dressed up for an aperitivo with a crop top and sandals.” Jamie
