Over the last two months I have been flooded with packing list requests, which makes sense because summer is almost here and tourism/vacation season is abound. This means that I get numerous requests for the same destination during the same time period, which makes it impossible for me to do that many separate lists to the same destination. It wouldn’t really make sense for me to either because it would be really repetitious. I know that each request comes fine tuned with personal tastes, styles, colour preferences, and I try really hard to incorporate all that but in order for me to get some of these done on time I am going to have to combine some destinations that are similar climates for the same time period.

So this week I had 9 requests for Italy in July/August and 3 requests for Sicily for the same time. And although I won’t be able to get each one personalized I hope that you can use the ideas as a template and include the colours and details that you prefer. I decided to label this one for Salerno for two reasons: 1. I don’t think I have ever made a Salerno destination list (If I have it was a long time ago), and 2. Salerno is the city in which the main character of a Medieval mystery book series I love is from. She is kick ass during a time that women weren’t allowed many freedoms. During the Middle Ages Salerno was one of the only medical schools that opened it’s doors to women. It made me want to visit.

In many/most Sicilian and Italian cities women tend not to wear shorts, even with the extreme heat of the summer. For this reason I included some loose pants, some cropped, lightweight pants that can be easily cuffed, and a midi skirt, along with jeans (for travel and random cool weather) and a couple of dresses. This will be more than enough for 10 days.

Also noted the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale started today and there is a huge amount of things for up to 40% off. I included several of these sale pieces in the packing list today. It’s worth a peek if you are a procrastinator like me with buying sandals and summer pieces.

*If you aren’t into pattern mixing and the floral blazer is too much, just swap it out for a neutral blazer. A black or navy linen blazer would look great with any of these pieces.

I did actually bite the bullet and ordered the sandals in this list on Monday night. It would be awesome if they arrived by the weekend because it’s supposed to get HOT

  1. Although I’m not a print person I’m loving the look of this blazer. How do you prefer the fit? Fitted, slightly loose or very loose?

    • I like a blazer to be loose enough that I can wear a sweater underneath in the fall. So slightly loose to oversized (boyfriend style) are my ideal fit.

  2. I really think this is one of your best packing lists so far! It’s got such a fun vibe and totally feels like what I would like to dress like for a vacation in Italy. I’m sure these take a long time to put together, and you really nailed it!

    • Thanks! I really like the one too. I wasn’t sure if it was going to come together but it did at the end. I am definitely not a shorts person so I feel like I kind of really want to buy those loose pants to sport this summer 🙂

  3. Hey Sara! Love all your posts especially the vacation packing guides. Something I’ve noticed though is in all your posts, even the ones that focus on beach vacations/summer, a majority of the items are jeans, cardigans/sweaters, or long sleeve shirts. I’m going to the Black Sea (Bulgaria) for ten days this summer and would love to see something that’s more sea-side/beach chillin’/humidity friendly!

    • Hi Ellie!

      I think I include those things many times because a) people give me a list of the pieces they want to bring and I work around those (or they are very anti shorts and skirts) and b) I hate summer 😉 I loathe the heat and humidity so I tend to stay away from a lot of super hot summer destination cities. Even here in the summer you’ll still see me wearing jeans when it’s 40°C out because I refuse to wear shorts. Some of my older posts are more beach getaway vibes though. I’ve been trying to get posts tagged and organized into seasonal lists so you can locate them easier, but it’s a work in progress 😉 I’ll try to get a few more beach friendly ones out over the next few weeks though so thanks for the suggestion.
