Travel With Cassandra
With her suitcase brimming with Leina & Fleur, L&F afficienado, Cassandra Leigh travels to Italy on a European escape of epic proportions. Travelling from the Amalfi Coast to Cinque Terra and on to Rome, here's Cassandra's guide of what to eat, see and wear.
One of our reasons for choosing to stay in Praiano on the Amalfi Coast was that we wanted somewhere not too packed with tourists. The other reason was @pirata.praiano. As soon as we saw the pics of a bar in a cave on the steep Amalfi Coast cliffs and an amazing restaurant that hangs right over the sea, well we were sold.
Getting some sun in Positano. Wearing my Maggie wrap dress (my fave style) in the Aquarius print. This dress goes from beach to cocktails perfectly, and the beauty of the print is that if you’re still a little wet no one can tell - 167cm, size 22. I’m really hoping there are more Maggie dresses this summer 🤞🏻
When they say Indi is the ultimate travel pant, they mean it! 3 planes, a train and 40 hours later, she still looks and feels fab (me not so much 🤣).
Comfy and casual for travel, then a quick change of shoes and top (into Gitana Bowie) and I’m ready for cocktails 🍹 - stats - I’m size 22 and 167cm, and she sits between full length and 7/8 length on me.
Exploring the alleyways of Roma, that’s where you find all the best delights.
Iconic Trevi Fountain. It’s as beautiful as all the pics, although a whole lot busier than what you see. We got there at 7:30am and it was still thronging. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate my gorgeous dress?! Lightweight and breathable, she's perfect for summer climates and the blue and white print is just my cup of tea!🤩 👗 ⛲️
I’d been eyeing the Tallula dress in Palms for some time. When my size was available in the sale I took the plunge. I’m so happy I did the golden colours are rich & striking. Feels amazing on, glad I tried something a little different.
I bought the skirt in the equinox print from the sales , as I have the top to match. This way I can have a few different looks from two pieces. It’s such a versatile skirt as it can be casual or dressed up depending on the shoes. Great fit and the fabric is so slinky. I am short but it’s a beautiful Maxi on me, just love how light and cool this skirt is.
A classy turtle neck for the extra warmth and coverage. Beautiful natural fibres in bamboo.
Beautiful whimsey print in a turtle neck adds class and warmth all at the same time!
This beautiful arm length and round neck make it conservative for the office and great with a pair of jeans for weekend running around!
I purchased the Bianca in candy floss and it’s really nice! I love the tie at the front as you can really cinch in the waist ( my best feature) and of course as usual the fabric is beautiful and of high quality. I am usually a 10 but have lost weight so the 8 is perfect and there’s stretch in the jersey too. I can see lots of wear in this item over the holidays when we go road tripping. I thoroughly recommend the Bianca
Amazing soft natural fibres. Conservative neckline so perfect for work when the v necks are a little to deep. Love it!
Thrilled with the Aspen top, really hoping it comes out in some bright colours! I’m 176cm and a size 8, and I find other L&F tops with the shirt-tail hemline are too short in the torso for me, but this is perfect - so I’d encourage any other tall ladies to give this one a try!
Beautiful fabric, lovely colour which will pair with so many other pieces. So comfortable and easy to wear. A keeper
I bought the lilac and saffron with the intention of returning one, but I'm keeping both. Honestly, these shrugs are one of those pieces that you put on with a t-shirt and jeans and feel fantastic, and the sleeves cover the elbow (one of my non-negotiables). I got the size 22 as that's my bra size, but its a bit snug across my broad shoulders (still wearable, just pulls the sleeves up a bit when you bring them up and forward). Next time I'll get the 24. PLEASE do in other colours...green, navy, jewel colours. Just fantastic, so thanks!
The river colorway goes well with jeans or more formal work wear. The perfect summer top - always looks so finished AND pretty!
So pleased with the deep green colour. Not my first Daphne, such a versatile style of dress!
Lovely shirt . Fabric soft and flowy . Great for work . Creases show less than on the Hunter version of the shirt and the fabric on this one seems softer too . Pleased with my purchase.
This lightweight Blazer is perfect for trans-seasonal days ... or for sun-protection as suggested by L&F. The breathable fabric makes it comfortable to wear, and I love it's stylish cut. It looks great over my longer dresses (I was wondering how it would go) ... and looks swish with my long pants too.
Lovely dress - true to size (12) and 156cm tall. Happy with my purchase.
