Even though some of you may have already seen our Travel Diary over on The Daily Dose, I still wanted to share some impressions from my weekend in Milano a week ago. Kathi and I had such a great time and LOVED everything from the top of the Duomo, mozzarella tasting, LOTS of gelato, the Confession of Design exhibition and of course croissants and cappuccinos for breakfast.
Even though I haven’t always been a sneaker girl, I’ve recently really grown to like the trend. Possibly because I am getting older and don’t want to waste my time with aching feet any more. For our weekend in Milano, I basically wore my Nikes non-stop. Once you spend a day walking through the city in sneakers, a whole new travel-experience unfolds. Personally, I’ve never explored a new city without painful feet by the end of the day. Not this time around. And guess what, I even wore my sneakers with a maxi dress…
Speaking of sneakers: my Nikes and I are currently at the airport, ready to board our flight to Istanbul. So excited!
What is it about girls and jewels? Not without reason is there a saying that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. While I only own a few “real” pieces of jewelry, which were all super special gifts from either my dad or boyfriend, I own a fairly extensive collection of “fashion jewelry”. I like to add a bit of bling to almost every outfit I wear, whether it is a big statement necklace, golden watch or sparkly earrings … just can’t get enough! And it is such an easy way to dress up a simple look. For my April wishlist, I found some stunning pieces on GIRISSIMA.com, which are not only absolutely beautiful, but also affordable. Win-win situation, right? Which combination is your favorite?
I just got back from Milano last night and am still in love with the amazing time Kathi and I had there this past weekend. Definitely #bestgirlstripever!! We only had about 44 hours in the Italian fashion capital, but we made the most out of it. The main reason for our trip was the Confession of Design exhibition with some super talented Austrian furniture designers (tomorrow on The Daily Dose), but we also had some spare time to explore the city. The weekend involved lots of gelato, Aperol-Spritzs with every meal (except breakfast …), exploring the Duomo, visiting a Hermès furniture exhibition in an old palazzo on Corso Venezia (major love!!) and much more … there’s a travel diary coming up later this week – so stay tuned for that! On Saturday, we headed to Via Tortona for aperitivo, but when we realized that about 300.000 other people had the same idea, we decided on a more relaxed dinner at the charming Osteria del Binari. With the perfect spring weather in Milano, I decided to take out my new white blazer by SET for the first time, paired with a bit of leo and my favorite black skinny jeans. Black, white & leo – always works, right?
