How to show off Jersey girl style in Italy

Traveling to Sorrento, Italy is one of my favorite places in the summer. The views are surreal and the food is delicious. Early mornings are spent shopping at the local boutiques and markets on the cobblestone streets. A long white dress is perfect for walking around the city. Staying cool is key, as this place can get very steamy this time of year.

A cotton loose black romper can double as a cover up after the market.

Afternoons are for dips in the sea or lounging in the Mediterranean sunshine. I always bring a different bikini for each day. It feels like an outfit to me. Oh, and  sunglasses are a must too.

Evenings are all about exploring the delectable restaurants that line the streets. A flowy top that looks equally as good worn as a dress is a great travel piece.

Romper are extremely versatile in a setting like Sorrento. You can dress them up or down.
