“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quiet real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real when you are gone.”
– John Steinbeck
Words cannot describe how amazing our honeymoon was. I’ve long dreamed of visiting the Amalfi coast (I have a print of it opposite my desk, that I glance at for inspo when I’m working), specifically the famous stacked houses on the hill in Positano, and the iconic orange parasols on the beach. Once we arrived, it was so much more than I expected. The winding cobbled streets, bougainvillea crawling up every wall and terrace, quaint shops and restaurants with the freshest pasta ever, and colors everywhere – blue glossy boats, terracotta stairs, pistachio gelato and of course, bright orange glasses of Aperol spritz! I was so excited planning our honeymoon here – typical me I booked dinners and boat rides, and planned my wardrobe a month in advance!
I scored so many fun pieces from MATCHESFASHION.com for this trip. They carry some of the coolest smaller luxury brands (as well as bigger ones like Tom Ford, Dolce, and The Row) that were just perfect with the Italian Riviera as my backdrop – printed dresses (for both day and night), high-waisted jeans and round sunglasses for sightseeing in Capri, a floral dress for a late night dinner, and of course the coolest Dolce & Gabbana palm print one piece that I absolutely could not visit Italy without. I felt like a retro starlet in this swimsuit, paired with oversized shades and a sunhat. From lounging by the pool to boating along the coast, and even just spending time with my hubs wandering the streets in search of gelato – I cannot pinpoint one favorite moment. I can’t wait to return to Positano – shop all my honeymoon looks from MATCHESFASHION.com below!
