Milly for Kohls blue floral dress, Dolce and Gabbana blue print inspired dress, J Crew straw hat, Valentino white lace up gladiator sandals, what to wear to Capri ItalyHi everyone! I’m continuing this week’s recap of our trip to Capri and wearing the prettiest Italian-inspired patterned sundress from the recent Milly for Kohls collection. It is very reminiscent of the dreamy Dolce & Gabbana Blue Majolica collection, but with a much more affordable price tag! Blue Majolica refers to a traditional ceramic pottery made in Italy that is hand-painted with bright, whimsical patterns–you’ll find it everywhere in Capri and the surrounding Mediterranean area.Capri Italy panoramic view, travel blog, what to pack for island vacationWe decided the best way to see the entire island while having the leisure to take our time would be to rent a scooter, so we picked one up and zipped around for the day. We stopped at a pull-off on the narrow, winding road and had to hike up a long flight of stairs, but luckily, we were rewarded with this breathtaking panoramic view of the island when we reached the top–I love all of the shades of blue in the water! Side note: I did not wear the heels in the rest of these photos for this portion of the day–definitely made sure to bring along comfy sandals!

As you can probably tell, the town literally runs right into the water, and there are only a few ‘beaches’ on the island: and be prepared to camp out on rocky boulders, not sand! Even though I would have loved to go for a swim, we decided to skip it this time since it is peak tourist season and these tiny areas were absolutely packed.Milly for Kohls Capri-inspired dress, Dolce Gabbana blue Majolica inspired dress, cobalt clutch, what to pack for island vacationI love a dress with pockets–definitely a genius detail in my opinion!
