Well, here's my big news. Some of you may already know this, others may not. I'm going to Italy. In a week and a half. SQUEALLLLLLL. Wow. Okay, that was a really big excited noise there. I'll be there for two weeks... touring around, trying to figure out how I' going to spend the rest of my life as a Landscape Architect. So, I've created a list of must have items that I need to take with me... Fashion wise. :)
-- A Maxi Skirt: I'll be visiting a lot of cathedrals and museums that require you to cover yourself... Thus, I'll be doing a maxi-skirt. Which, if needed could be adjusted to become midlength, knee length, or shorter. Very Versatile.
Love Maegan just posted a great Tutorial on how to DIY a maxi skirt. Thinking of thrifting a dress and doing it! LOL
--Solid color shirts: Simple, but can be worn with just about anything and they'll work. I don't want something that I'll only wear once while I'm there... these things have got to last!
Target has some great ones... for $8! YAY! Not breakin' the bank. That's why I heart Target.
--A Jacket: A light, but not super light one. I found this one through HauteLook and fell in love.
And I got it for... $35. Yippee!!
--Jeans: Although I haven't decided on a style yet, I know I can take my skinny jeans....
Or my straight leg... Hmmm... Decisions, decisions.
--Flats: For walking. We will be going everywhere imaginable and I'll be walking a lot. Soooo... I'm thinking my flip flops (but not the plastic kind) and closed toed ones for when it's cold.
These ones from Seychelles are SO CUTE!
However, a more affordable option is Blowfish's Noble flat
Or the Gilt... SUPER CUTE!
--Accessories: Some cute earrings, necklaces, etc. However, not any that I hold dear. Knowing my luck I'd lose them. Sooo... I figure, I'm just going to DIY some. :)
Via Material Therapy
via Honestly... WTF

And those are my basics. I'm so excited!! Are there any other items that you would suggest? These are just a few on my list, but I'm always looking for suggestions!
