Finally! I have been hoping you girls would start a blog! Now maybe you can help me with a little fashion dilemma I am having. Actually it's a packing dilemma. My husband and I are going to Italy for two weeks in September. We will be doing a lot of sightseeing and don't want to haul a lot of luggage around, but I don't want to look like a silly American tourist either. What should I pack that won't take up a lot of room, but will still have me looking chic and stylish?

Wow! Two weeks in Italy--you are a very lucky girl! What fun! My best travel advice (and I know this sounds harsh) STICK WITH ONE CARRY-ON SUITCASE. You will get around so much more easily and comfortably without having to worry about a multitude of bags and baggage. One thing I like to do is pack a roomy zip-up tote bag that can be loaded with souvenirs and shopping as the sightseeing day progresses. I then ship those items home separately so I don’t have to lug them around for the rest of the trip. Also, I usually save most of my souvenir shopping till the very end. I take a fold-up tote bag which can be loaded with goodies and checked onto the plane home. (No need to be as concerned about late luggage on the trip home!)

Next, here are the four sure-fire rules for travel packing: 1. Nothing white; 2. Items that are wrinkle-proof; 3. Clothes you can layer; 4. Very few (to clarify the nothing white rule: no white trousers, skirts or dresses--at least one white tee is a must.)

Don’t try to pack a new outfit for every day. Clothing for three days is a standard. Plan on doing laundry. Underwear doesn’t take up much space, so take 7 days worth. Chose separates that can be mixed and matched. Stick with easy-to-work-with colors like khaki, navy, brown, black. Take 2 pairs of pants that travel well, mix/match shirts and a couple of sweaters—-one pull-over and one cardigan. Also, be aware that some of the cathedrals and religious sights have dress codes (knee-length dresses or skirts; absolutely no mini-skirts), as well as the nicer restaurants and hotels, so I would suggest one travel-friendly dress (LBD)and one skirt. A knee-length stretch khaki skirt is ideal because it can be dressed up with a silk blouse, or go totally casual with a skinny white tee. Two pairs of shoes: one for the miles and miles of walking you will be doing, and one that will work with all of your separates, ballet flats work well and are also comfortable. Scarfs & pashminas don’t take up much space and can add color and personality to an outfit (as well as warmth!).

Also, from personal experience, take Imodium with you.

Best of luck!

If you don't pick up some serious Italian footwear while you are there then consider it a totally wasted trip!! Any serious fashionista can find a way to convince her husband that it was his idea anyway. Oh, and don't forget to snap up a handbag or two. As they say, when in Rome...
