All Black Outfit Inspiration

June 29th, 2014

My wardrobe is very colorful, but I’ve started an all-black uniform for when I’m on assignment.  This photo taken in Milan is definitely going on my inspiration board.

Leopard Print Shoes

Remember these shoes leopard print, well, I spotted them in Italy.  Bad pun, sorry.

I believe they are Stella McCartney.  I found them here.  Do you happen to have a pair?

Simple Vacation Attire – Como

June 23rd, 2014

I love the simplicity of the above outfit–red shorts and a black shirt.  It was absolutely hot in Como and spending the week hoping on the water taxis to and from the towns on the lake warranted shorts and a breezy outfit such as this one.

I’m finding that as I get older (and as it becomes more and more imperative that I leave the house without food stain on my clothes, hair…you name it), my style has become more and more simple.  Case in point, this simple white dress (a gift from my mom), my West Elm Market tote, and L.A.M.B. sandals from a gazillion years ago.

The dress is linen and totally impractical on vacation as it wrinkles easily.  However, I love it as I preshrunk it and simply toss it in the washing machine when it gets stained by my little one’s grubby hands.

More pictures of Italy to come. Xx.

Villa D’Este

June 16th, 2014

We’re back from a very relaxing week spent on Lake Como.  I’ve gotten spoiled off of beautiful lake views, sunny and hot days. It was quite a surprise to wake up to grey London days again this morning. It’s only been two days since we’ve been home, but our time away seems so long ago. Oh, to spend my days by the pool or taking dips in the lake.  I suppose the grey weather is a wake-up call to get back to work.

Here are some photos from the very famous Villa D’Este.  Each morning we woke up with views of the Villa and since we stayed exactly on the other side of the lake.  It was fun to take the ferry to Cernobbio to see what Villa D’Este looked like up close.
