I’m not going to lie. The unseasonably warm temperatures this weekend have me feeling COMPLETELY ready for spring. It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve done any shopping and yesterday morning, I found myself browsing all my favorite websites to check out what’s coming.  With the promise of an adventure on the horizon, I’ve pulled together a collection of my favorite spring dresses for Italy.

Spring Dresses for Italy

If you know me at all, you’ll know that I don’t typically wear long dresses. But these dresses have me swooning and imagining long leisurely dinners at sunset on the Vernazza harbor.  I purchased a Rachel Pally dress for the L.O.N.G. flight to China and I’m completely obsessed with how soft it is.  (I’m still kicking myself for not buying the one Amanda wore in Arizona – it was on super sale!  I wish I had pulled the trigger on it!)  I can imagine wandering the streets of Florence wearing this navy dress with my husband before slipping into the Golden View for chianti and jazz.

I’m imagining sipping bellinis and listening to string quartets serenade San Marco long into the evenings in Venice.  This striped number or even the brocade floral dress would take me back in time I’m sure.  With short, casual stripes, I can imagine making pesto in Cinque Terre again, enjoying the warm as I roam Manarola. Maybe I’ll stop to enjoy an ice cold limoncello on the walk back this time.  Maybe I’ll take in the Accademia or the Uffizi in Florence for a few hours to escape the crowds during the day.  Or maybe I’ll just sit on the steps of the Piazzale Michelangelo and watch the sun set over the Ponte Vecchio.

Oh yes, all these spring dresses for Italy have me feeling some kind of way… nostalgic for trips past and excited for adventures anew.  Now, I just need a plan.
