Jacey Duprie of the blog Damsel in Dior is quite the busy bee, so when she told us she was jetting off to Italy this week we knew she’d have quite the fun-packed itinerary. More importantly, we knew she’d be doing it all in style, so we asked her to share which pieces made it into her suitcase, and her tips for being a chic traveler. And with her full docket of sightseeing, shopping, and sampling the local fare, we also decided to give her free reign over our instagram for the day so that we can live vicariously. Find out what she’s up to here.
