Italian Weekend Away & Outfit of The Day

This weekend I was lucky enough to fly out to Sorrento with three of my oldest school friends. I love the parts of Italy that I’ve seen before but I was especially taken in by the Sorrento area. It’s a simply beautiful place to visit. We took a day trip to Pompeii, got a ferry over to the island of Capri and wondered the streets of old Sorrento taking in the sights and stopping every few hours for some fresh pasta, gelato or a glass of wine. Absolute bliss. 

While I was out there, New Look also challenged me to put together an outfit using some items from their new ‘Tropical Surf’ range… 

It was the perfect opportunity to embrace summer a little earlier than normal in the UK! As it was still quite chilly (Sorrento sits on the cliffs above the sea, so it’s quite windy!) I decided to layer up a little acid wash denim dress with a tropical palm tree shirt. 

I’m not normally one for double denim, but I’ve been obsessed with this dark wash denim jacket since I got it last week, so I popped that on to fight off the breeze! Topped off with a bright necklace and some chunky heels (much better than stilettos on the Italian cobblestones!) all from New Look.

I absolutely loved our weekend trip. Sadly we didn’t get time to visit Amalfi or Positano, but I hope one day I’ll get to go back and explore a little more!
