How to Rock an Over 50 Travel Wardrobe-Italy the First 5 Days


Wear the trench and boots (your heaviest items) on the plane for warmth and to create more space in your carry on.  Spend the hours on the plane researching the area.


 1. Comfy USA Dream Leggings 2. J Crew Icon Trench 3. Sole Society Leopard Scarf 4. Rick Steves Italy 5. Eddie Bauer Turtleneck 6. Superfeet Black Insoles 7. Leopard I Pad Case 8.  Rain Sun Hat  9. Blondo Victorina Boot 10.  Baggalini Crossbody Travel Bag

 Your first day you will be tired from the air travel.  Wear your most comfortable clothes.  You will be doing a lot of walking and getting lost your first day.

 1. Artful Home Sassy Cowl Jacket  2. Eddie Bauer Crewneck  3. Skirted Leggings Artful Home  4. Ecco Chase Sneaker  5. Rain Sun Hat-Debra Weitzner  6. J Crew Factory Dotted Scarf 7. Rick Steves Pocket Rome

Day Three in Rome : more walking and not as much getting lost.  Switch out your leggings for the Surplice Dress, add boots and accessories and you are ready for dinner.

Day Four Beautiful Siena.  The only way to get around is to walk and there is a chance of showers. Bring your raincoat and fold your hat in your purse just in case. Enjoy every minute of this gorgeous city.

Today you might be driving more than walking visiting the hilltowns. A Wrap is always a versitile piece to have in case the weather cools in the afternoon.  San Gimignano was one of our favorite hilltowns. Chambray isn't wrinkle free but it seems to look fine wrinkled or not.

Do you have any travel plans for Spring?  If so where are you headed?  I would love to hear about it.  

Next week will be the final installment of my Over 50 Travel Series.  See you there!!

  1. Wow. Love the new layout on your blog. I love the artful home jewelry. Those hoop earrings are really cool. I find jewelry is an easy way to change up your look when you are traveling.

  6. We're going to France in the fall and maybe Montreal in June. Are you really heaving along the Nikon? With telephoto? I grew up with 35mm and lenses and bags and weight. No more!!! Love the black and white with a dash of camel, a hint of leopard and a splash of red. My favorite neutrals.

    1. No I would not be dragging the Nikon. Although I know some do! For now Europe is out of the question for me as I have an elder to watch out for.

  7. Hi!

    No I am actually not "really" travelling to Italy. I have a 94 year old father that I need to care for. We did a few years ago and hope to again at some point. Would love to be heading to France as well. I take almost all of my pics with my Iphone. I needed to add the camera for a filler. I know there are come that still tote their big cameras along. Glad you are enjoying the series.
