The main reason for our trip to Sicily was to celebrate my 30th birthday. My dad and his wife told me to pick anywhere in the world (within reason, Antarctica probs wasn’t an option) and we would go as a family for a true summer vacation. Although we’re Italian and have spent a lot of time and many a summer in Italy, I’d never been to the island of Sicily so that is what I chose. Our week there was pretty amazing (see more photos on Instagram) and I’ll give you a big recap of the highlights of our trip later this week.
On one of our last nights on the island, we dressed up for dinner at Da Vittorio, a traditional Sicilian restaurant with spectacular views as my formal birthday celebration. Per most of our meals, we indulged on antipasti, followed by pasta, followed by fresh fish, followed by lemon granitas. With copious amounts of wine, of course (I literally cannot button a pair of shorts that I wore a week before we left!).
Between courses, we headed to the beach to take some photos and my little brother Jackson wanted in on the fun yet again so we made it a bit of a group shoot!
I love this floral dress for summer nights because it’s forgiving, flattering, and colorful. I plan to wear it to a summer wedding we’re going to in August as well.
