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

If you have been following along on this little journey to Italy here are the last five outfits.  If you missed the first two installments go here and here

The Lexi Shirt from Comfy USA for Artful Home is  a travel staple in a wrinkle resistant mix of cotton, nylon and spandex.

Today we will be in Montepulciano, one of my favorite Hill Towns. The Lexi Shirt can be worn as an extra layer over a tee if the weather is brisk in the morning.

On day seven in Florence a wrap can be worn over a turtleneck and leggings on a chilly day.

On day eight for dinner the Lexi shirt can be layered with the Sassy Cowl Jacket for a chilly walk home.  The red clutch doubles as a jewelry carrier on the plane and a clutch with a pop of color for evening.

There’s a chance of rain on day nine so grab your trench.  Wear your sneakers there will be a lot of walking.

Day 10 in Bergamo is the last day of our trip and the day of the wedding.  Fortunately the Surplice Dress and Sassy Cowl Jacket are wrinkle resistant.

The items below make up the “Supporting Cast”.  They don’t take up much space and they are what make the outfits versatile and creative.

For lack of a better word I will call these four pieces from Artful Home “Chameleons”.  They can be dressed down or dressed up numerous ways and they do not wrinkle.

I hope this might help a little bit if you are planning a trip soon.  Have a great weekend!!
