I left my heart (and my stomach) in Portofino

15th June 2016

FullSizeRender 9 Of all the places I have traveled as of late (with the exception of Japan) I think Portofino was my favorite.FullSizeRender 5FullSizeRender 6

This little picturesque part of Tuscany I traveled to with Princess Cruises totally stole my heart. It’s a colorful wonderland, filled with gelato, thick accents, cobblestone streets, tiny little shops and gelato … did I mention that already?!FullSizeRender 8FullSizeRender 10

Although I know Quasimodo was in France, I thought I would channel Esmerelda vibes for this Italia look! So here I am, belly full of gelato and this off the shoulder top for the third or forth time on my trip with through the Mediterranean with Princess cruises, this time with a colorful midi skirt and some flat sandals.FullSizeRender 4FullSizeRender 7

Color Me Cliff Notes

This skirt is the cutest! I love the candy stripes and that it has pockets, score! Its pretty light weight and extremely comfortable, great for twirling your way through Portofino. I’m wearing a size 0, my waist is pretty small but I should have gone up to a 2, or maybe just ate a little less gelato.

I don’t think I can rave about this top anymore … just trust me when I say you need it in your wardrobe! Plus, see me style it again in Portofino here

As you know, these haircalf flats are the comfiest and super chic, I love that they’re a basic but with a bold twist in color and texture. Oh and did you notice the black and white stripe soles? obsessed! PS – They fit TTS.

Every girl needs a good cat eye sunny! These make me feel like I’m a old movie star! Worth the splurge, but giving you a look for less version below, obvi :)

I lived in this hat in Europe because my hair was so not hashtag hair goal in the humidity! I actually destroyed this hat when we got rained out on our last day and left it behind :( but I loved it so much (and it’s only $28) so I already ordered a new one!

This bag won’t fit my phone, mostly just my tiny wallet and a compact but it’s cute and on sale and not to mention CUTE so I bought it, oops! Comes in red too!

    Wow, you look stunning in this look! I can’t figure out which piece I love the most because they are all so great. The stripped midi skirt is gorgeous and you never fail to find the best pieces with lots of color. Definitely a statement piece. Not only that, but I love the off the shoulder top with the ruffles hanging down. You look fab! I hope you enjoy your weekend!
