It's been about two weeks now that I've left the Amalfi Coast, but if you've been following me on Instagram, you'll know that my heart is still somewhere in Italy.

I arrived in Positano after taking a 5 hour train from Milan to Naples, another 45min train ride (that is probably one of the sketchiest train rides of my life) to Sorrento followed by a 30min bus ride up the mountains. I think the sea gods was probably looking out for me but Shun and I somehow managed to find our hotel by just letting the craziest winds push us up and down the hills in complete darkness. 

When we arrived at our hotel, finally, in the middle of the night-- I think that the people who greeted us could tell that we pretty much went through the craziest day so they were kind enough to upgrade our room. Literally, our balcony gave us one of the most stunning hotel views I've ever seen with the colorful coastal houses on the side and a split between sky and sea on another side.

Since March is still considered a winter month in Italy, we were blessed that during our stay, the temperature never dropped below 50 degrees (F). If I knew that the weather would be this beautiful, I would've surely worn a maxi skirt/dress (or something prettier in general) for this location.

On a day of exploring the coast, I opted for a cozy baby blue turtleneck from Banana Republic paired with classic ripped black pants and the comfiest espadrilles by Soludos

I sat at this part, far away from the center of Positano with the colorful houses along the mountain side as my backdrop for hours really letting the salty water air soak in as I try to internalize the Italian motto of "La Dolce Vita" which literally translate to "The Sweet Life." 

Unlike Northern Italy, the vibe of Southern is full of hospitality and warmth that is perfect for a mental cleanse.
