Links I Love Week 26

amalfi coast boats

Ciao from Italy! My husband and I are here visiting Capri and Positano. I am preplanning this post ahead of schedule while I wait at Heathrow Airport to fly to Naples. We arrived with plenty of time to go through security and wait for our flight. I am an early to the airport person, and probably one of the only things I am early for. 

Grab your coffee and croissants, and join me for links I love. 

You can see what I packed for the Amalfi Coast here. Even with a packing guide and a photo of what I was packing, I forgot this dress and I am so bummed! We have a party the night we land back in Chicago so I will have to wear it instead. 

While in London, I was able to meet with the team of Monica Vinader. It was so much fun to see all their jewelry in person. I fell in love with many pieces I want to add to my collection. The team was kind enough to send me off with two bracelets, now my honeymoon jewelry, to bring me good memories. This bracelet and this bracelet will be added to my arm stack when I get home.

We have really been enjoying “The Bear” on Hulu. This article highlights some of what was done to film and prep for season 2. There are definitely some anxiety revolving around some of the episodes. We haven’t finished it yet so I can’t make any final conclusions. 

Also, if you are curious like me, every Chicago restaurant Syd visited in The Bear! Making notes to check some of these spots out.

I partnered with Evereve to share some of my favorite summer dresses. Plus, good news, they are on sale!! 

Somehow I misplaced my chargers for Europe and ended up purchasing these at an Apple store. I forgot how many additional plugs you get in this set. These slide onto your Apple devices such as your laptop and other chargers. I prefer these over using a converter since I have shorted out a charger. It ended up being a great value I could split with my husband.

My husband bought me a Kindle for our trip to Italy and I was hesitant at first but now we are both loving them. I am reading the book, “Never Lie” I am a few chapters in and should finish by the end of the day. I have so many books to read now and love the easy access and screen.
