di Grazia - Italy Day 4 & 5

You caught me out, yes, it’s true, I’ve been recycling outfits on this holiday. Kate Middleton eat your heart out! While it would be lovely to have enough clothes to wear something different every day, I think if I ever achieve that, my husband will divorce me. Yesterday, I wore my lovely Warehouse maxi skirt which you saw a few weeks ago. I thought it would be perfect for a boat ride to Sirmione and a day of sightseeing for my little boys 3rd birthday (we had his birthday party a few weeks ago). I wore it slightly differently this time with a simple navy jersey singlet top and Stella & Dot necklace.

Happy birthday beautiful boy xo

Sirmione is a small town positioned on a peninsula and is called the pearl of Lake Garda, it is certainly a beautiful (if somewhat crowded) spot. In a misguided attempt at holiday glamour I wore my silver LK Bennet flats, which after a few hours of walking in the sun turned rather painful on me. Luckily I spotted these super cool fish print Havaiana’s at a cute little tourist shop, any excuse for a spot of holiday shopping!

Comfy shoes thank you!

My new Havaianas, I'm in love. Buy similar here
Today we travelled up to Verona for our last day in Italy. It’s such a beautiful city and while Lake Garda was perfect for relaxing, Verona just feels like what you dream Italy will be. You may recognise my red Oasis dress from just a few weeks ago. I wore it then to a night at the pub, but I think it works equally well for a day of sightseeing with minimal accessories and my trusty brown Havaiana’s. I’m looking forward to bringing it out in the winter months with opaque’s and boots. Versatility is so important when building your wardrobe and easy to wear staples like this dress make it simple.

So, do you make your wardrobe work hard? Are you an avid recycler?
