Do you remember how we ate enough to sink a ship in Italy?
It is all very well to swoon over warm Foccacia and Genovese Pesto, but let me tell you something – decadent Italian food does no favours to ones wardrobe. I promise you this – a week of savouring Italian delicacies will leave your jeans feeling snugger and dresses feeling tighter than usual. So what’s a girl gotta do? Give up the antipasti and apertifs? Starve to fit into a dress? No way!
I have a better solution – give in to gluttony and pick a dress that covers a multitude of sins. After all, you’re on holiday!
This might be why I am so fond of Maxi Dresses 😉 I chose a bright maxi dress for our whirlwind tour of Genoa’s trattorias and gelaterias. This dress is pleated all the way through. The vivid colours make it quite a bold piece so I stuck to simple accessories – a black bag, mirrored gold aviators, and chunky gold earrings. I pulled my hair in a top-knot to keep it out the way and pulled the whole look together with a waist-cinching black and gold belt.
And that is how you set the stage for culinary indulgence- tadaaa
