Its been one week since I've been back from Italy. It has felt like the longest week, like ever, and to be honest, my mind is still in Positano sipping a spritz and taking in the breathtaking Amalfi Coast views. Le sigh. 

To get things kicked off with my Italy Travel Diaries recaps, I'm starting the first recap post with one of my favorite aspects of travel- the style! Packing for a European vacation can be a pain, and as much as I read tips from other bloggers on packing light, I just can't seem to do it. I knew deep down in my 50+lb suitcase I'd be happy to have over packed to have fun outfits at my fingertips- especially in Positano! Below is a recap of all the looks...

Positano, Italy is a place I have always dreamed of. The blue waters and colorful houses lining the Italian cliffs is something of a dream or movie that I always thought of as a past memory, although I had never been. For years I would google search images of Positano and daydream of the vintage images and its vibrant luster and brilliant backdrop as an ocean side village. The romanticism of this gorgeous destination allured me for many years, and after planning my husband, David, and I's (very long overdue) honeymoon, I added it to our list of places to go, as I had to experience this destination with my soulmate firsthand.

Positano is part of the famed area of southern Italy known as The Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Coast encompasses 13 different towns along the coast and is known for the beautiful coastline views and limoncello. While in Positano, our new friend and wine sommelier, Leyla, recommended we take a day trip to Ravello by way of Amalfi. Since we had walked the town of Positano pretty much in full, we decided to take the day trip to Amalfi. The transportation to Amalfi is simple- there is a bus that stops every one to two hours and the cost is only about 6 euros each way. Of course the bus lines were on strike the day we wanted to go, so we waited...

The food in Positano is any carb lovers dream. In the days we were there, we ate pizza, pasta, bread, more pasta, and caprese salads like it was going out of style. But hey, can you blame us? We were walking upwards of 20,000 steps a day and climbing 80 flights of stairs from all those Positano steps (not even joking, my phone one day said we climbed 80 flights of stairs!), so we lived a little. Not to mention we were in ITALY, hello, who doesn't overload on Italian carbs when there? If you don't then you are vacationing wrong!

With our limited options of restaurants open due to off season, we frequented the same restaurants a few times...
