I have fallen head over heels in Lust with Venice and all it’s prettiness…. It is without a doubt ruined by tourists but also without a doubt, one of the prettiest and fairytale-esque places I have had the chance to visit….The winding, narrows lanes and streets are filled with tiny wine bars and eateries, each one more delicious than the next. Some of my favourite few minutes in Venice were spent at the bar of a tiny venetian coffee shop eating cornetti and drinking coffee. I also loved sitting along the canals in the dusky evening drinking prosecco and people-watching. So relaxing and so entertaining. We made sure to walk as far as possible from the main tourist hubs to find the most authentic Italian restaurants, bars and shops and made sure that there was lots of locals anywhere we went. Always a good sign! I cannot get enough of the Gelato and Caprese Salad here…Mmmmm!
I was absolutely in awe in the Venetian mask shops, taking in the artistic talents of some of the mask-makers. Just exquisite!
I have moved on to Florence now so I cannot wait to explore it…I am getting closer to those vineyards!!!
I wore my polka-dot, pleated skirt from Warehouse with a striped t-shirt I picked up in America last summer and a bright necklace from H&M whilst wandering the streets of Venice.
Love Locks all over Venice xoxo
Landed in Milan this morning to a cloudy but really warm day… Perfect Day for wandering through the city, people watching and doing a spot of shopping! The style here is beautiful, the ladies dress so elegantly but also have a real edge to their style.
I fell in love with the most amazing McQueen Lace Blazer and a Lemon Dolce&Gabbana Dress down around the opulent Via Montenapoleone today… Dreams do come true!? If I saved up for the next twenty years and pawned everything I own I probably still would only be able to afford an arm of it!
Milan is a great and fabulously trendy City with the most beautiful shopping centres and buildings but I am only here for one night and then I head to Venice for the weekend. As much as I have enjoyed seeing Milan and people-watching today, I am looking forward to relaxing and chilling out in Tuscany more than anything next week!
Saying that, I am excited to head out for ”un bicchiere di cold vino spumante” now and do some more style-gazing!
I have yet to come across Olivia Palermo who is supposed to be here today too….. Eeeek…GIRLCRUSH!
I am a busy little bee trying to sort out my holiday to Italy but I will do my best to be a better little blogger over my holidays and post some outfit posts! I guess I have no excuse with the gorgeous landscapes and backdrops of Tuscany! I have wanted to visit Tuscany ever since I was a little girl and I saw the movie Stealing Beauty starring Liv Tyler set in the Italian Countryside.
Besides that, I was busy getting all the names together tonight for a WINNER for my Mon Amie Giveaway… One lucky lady has won a €50 voucher for the fabulous Mon Amie Boutique in Killarney where you can find some pretty Jones and Jones gems- all ruffles, full skirts, lace and backless gems!
