Beaux Travel Diary: Naples

hiii guys!! its me. so i went to naples and puglia for my 30th birthday and it. was. awesome. (puglia is now in my top 5 places on earth (other 4 spots: hawaii, tulum, idaho, and number four is tbd) but I digress...) we flew into naples and then did a roadtrip southeast to the bottom most point of italy. we spent three days in naples bc PIZZA. bae and i are huge foodies and we would have been remiss big time if we had missed neapolitan pizza. so our only schedule was pizza when we got there. tehehehe. 

we stayed in an airbnb which was amazing, with a garden terrace that was bigger than the flat and i literally felt like sophia loren in all her movies. real talk tho, i didnt feel safe in naples. so glad i went to check it out in depth (had been there briefly a while ago en route to capri) and obviously the food (!!!) but i dont think ill go back.🙊 🙈  mi dispiace!!!

Da Michele and Di Matteo are the best pizza spots in the whole world. My fave was Di Matteo and holibae's was Da Michele. Dont miss them!  (Ill have a list at the bottom of beaux recs of what to do/ eat etc in Naples:) )

i took some wrap ruffle dresses and now im never looking back. i put some of my fave wrap dresses in this post bc mine have been my fave purchase this summer. i also love them bc you can wear sneakers and still feel young and fancy free. 

of course i am never without my Blondie or Baby Blondie 🌟

*also if you live in london and are in notting hill this weekend, ill be doing a popup shop Friday and Saturday at The Farmacy and would love love love to see you there! I'll also be doing 20% off the ENTIRE Beaux Store (ahhh!) AND bc i super appreciate everyone who reads my blog, here is a sneak preview of the coupon code FARMACY20 (valid from now until this Sunday!) *

these style of wrap dresses are my everything. so, bc im massively addicted, i put together my wrap dress wish list so i have more pieces to self reward with once personal milestones are hit and goals are achieved or whatever. or else when its late at night and i have no self control.

Here is a bust on the terrace, and below is inside our flat which i thought was super groovy.

53 is where i had the best pasta of my life...a simple pacchero with tomato and mozzarella and now nothing will ever be the same. also the vongole below was insane too. not a flashy spot and the drinks come with aluminium foil on them haha but its no fuss good food. basically, i highly recommend this spot!!
