Italy Recap :: Part Two Positano / Capri

HAT:: Brixton // COVERUP:: Zara // SANDALS:: Sam Edelman // BAG:: CJ Laing // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban

It's hard to put into words just how much Grant and I loved Le Sirenuse. The view's over looking Positano and the Mediterranean  were unbelievable. We both instantly lit up when we received our giant mermaid key to our room and were greeted with probably the best lemonade I've ever had. We tend to gravitate towards more "boutique" style hotels ( we frequent the Mark in New York for dinner and drinks) so we felt like Le Sirenuse was right up our alley.

At night we went downstairs to the infamous Champagne & Oyster bar before heading out to eat and with super trendy music playing in the background while soaking in the scenery ( sipping on a incredibly fresh cocktail with lemon of course) I did not want this week to come to an end.

 Le Sirenuse offered a stunning pool lined with lemon trees where we would spend parts of our days depending on what time our activities were. The first two days we had explored the town, bought my mom a bottle of Limón cello, drooled over the beautiful ceramics ( and bought not on purpose matching driving loafers!). They were a total steal only 40 Euro! We ate some of the best pizza I've ever had at Tre Sorelle ( adjacent to Chez Black where we had dinner) and then enjoyed more lemonade by the pool.

Pool Essentials! This Tarte spray was a game changer. I used it in flight, post flight, during our day trips and while lounging at the pool!! It kept my skin hydrated all day plus doubles as a primer. For a little cheek color I always carry a shade of Glossier's cloud paint. I chose to go with my newest one, beam. For SPF I love Baby Lips for lip protection which a lot of people forget about and Cerave zinc for my body. You can really just put it on once and you're set for the day. I normally burn if I don't reapply but the zinc kept me protected all day long!

Our third day in Positano we took a boat over to Nerano bay to eat lunch and lounge at Conca Del Sogno. Le Sirenuse actually offers a boat to take over to Nerano bay depending on weather, but you have to make sure you do this in advance since it fills up quickly! Grant and I had heard so many things about Conca we knew we had to make the trip. Nerano Bay is halfway between Positano and Capri and in a way it reminded me of Ravello. Small and tucked away you'd almost miss it! Conca Del Sogno did not disappoint. We had an amazing lunch ( linguine with lobster) and then grabbed two lounge chairs to put our stuff on before heading to the rocks and jumping into the Med for an afternoon swim. If you're heading to Positano, I highly recommend taking a boat over to Nerano Bay!





On our last day - you could say we saved the best for last, we took a private boat out and over to Capri. We got off at the main port and took a cab up to the square to walk around and explore. The majority of the island is pedestrian so it's a ton of walking and it can get pretty crowded in the afternoons so I recommend doing some exploring in the morning.

 After an unsuccessful shopping hunt ( my wallet has thanked me) we got back on the boat and circled around Capri to see the grottos and go for a swim. I can easily say this was one of the best days of my life! Going around this stunning island by boat and peaking inside colorful grottos ( yes colorful! there is a blue, an emerald, a white and red!) we drank prosecco and took in all of the natural beauty around us.



ONE PIECE:: L*Space // WRAP:: Echo // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban // GRANT'S SUIT:: Chubbies





After our grotto swimming we headed back towards Positano and stopped in Nerano Bay again for lunch. This time we ate at La Scoglia which is famous for their zucchini pasta ( above). It may not sound too appetizing to some of you , it didn't to me but it was easily one of my favorite meals of the entire trip.

It was hard to leave but I know we will eventually be back. The week was filled with amazing food, wine, weather and sights. If anyone would like further recommendations on where we ate and more details on our hotels please feel free to email us!
