Taking to Instagram, the 41-year-old shared a new reel of pictures posted from the trip, including one of her wearing a white vest top and tiny denim shorts, while posing in the sun with a relative.Alongside the snapshot, she wrote: "I've learned on Day 5 without luggage and traveling with my family that…LITERALLY NO ONE CARES WHAT I'M WEARING! My sister in law @nmredding and I are wearing my MIL's clothes, I wear Calvin's PJs to bed, and we have fun together all day long.

"I've never felt more free (although this doesn't get you off the hook @delta and @klm…I really liked the clothes I packed and I could really use a new pair of contacts!!) In the meantime, we'll continue to make memories!!"

Fans were quick to comment on the uplifting post, with many impressed that the star was able to fit into her six-year-old son's pyjamas. "Wow, you can fit into Calvin's pyjamas!" one wrote, while another replied: "The fact you can wear your son's pyjamas amazes me."

Dylan is clearly very resourceful and trying to make the best out of the situation. "The hotel was nice enough to give us nightgowns so I took my bathrobe, tied it around my waist and made myself a dress," she said, adding: "I've been wearing the same pants since Friday. I've been washing them in the sink and hanging them outside!"

Dylan's luggage mishap isn't the only problem the star has had to face while away in Italy as the country is currently being hit by extreme temperatures and wildfires. Sharing her experience of the heat, Dylan said: "I can't even explain to you guys how hot it is. You know when you open a hot oven and you get a hot blast in the face, that's what it feels like outside."

She continued: "We were supposed to go on a tour to a town to called Syracuse in Sicily, which got to 114 degrees yesterday and is the hottest temperature ever in Europe and we happen to be here. We're not going to do that tour today because it's too hot for the kids."
