I spent the past few days high up in the Tuscan Hills based in a tiny picturesque village called Loro Ciuffenna from where we toured around some of Tuscany including the tiny medieval town of Il Borro which is owned by the family of the Italian Designer, Salvatore Ferragamo. It is the tiniest but one of the most alluring little places I have had the opportunity to experience. I loved all that Tuscany had to offer….We visited some really enchanting villages high up in the hills such as, Volpaia. I ate Tuscan specialities and drank gorgeous Prosecco & Chianti to my heart’s content and with a belly full of carbs, I am now at the Beach!
I have arrived in such a chic and almost Californian-esque resort town called Forte dei Marmi, about 30minutes from Pisa. It is gorgeous here but a total change from the tranquility and beauty of Tuscany. It sure is very upmarket here! Lots of amazing designer boutiques, huge villas and fancy cars everywhere. We borrowed bikes from our hotel and spent a few days cycling around and I was just in my element. Needless to say, the style is incredible here, even the beach wear is super stylish! My Penneys bikini just did not do it for me today! I may love love love clothes but I just do NOT love bikinis!
I bought this hot pink silk dress from Topshop before I came over and I am so in Lust with it…It is so loose and comfortable and can be dressed up or down. I wore it to my Oasis Party also. It was from the Beach-Wear section and is quite see-through so I have worn it with some 3/4 length black leggings (an idea I admittedly stole from a Top-shop employee) and my favourite Zara shoes which I really have gotten my moneys worth from at this stage(!!!) and my new Zara sequinned clutch which I got whilst in Milan.
