Guess who? And guess where?! I was recently the very grateful guest of Bottega Veneta in Milan, Italy. It would appear that I live a rather glamourous life based on the images I’ve posted as of late, but in reality, my day and half in Milan was a far cry from how I’ve been spending my time lately, glued to the computer screen day and night. A very welcome break, including pizza, pasta and leather goods? Yes please.
But more on those leather goods in the next post – for now, Milano! Like I mentioned above, I’m not very good at being ‘glamourous’, I’m perfectly happy in a sun dress and some flats, but you’ve got to make a bit of an effort when you’re heading to Milan, where everybody dresses impeccably (not to mention those other bloggers you’ll be spending your time with!). So my idea of dressing up a bit was…a pair of jeans. I’ve not worn flares like this since the age of 14 or so, my preferred shape of school trouser, but this pair from MiH had such an incredibly cool 70s vibe, that I straight away wanted to pair with a breton top, pair of sunnies and red lips. I’d advise them to any other girls larger than a size small out there too, as they flatter in all the right places, which I find rare in trousers. I just had to make sure to breathe in after the copious amount of mozzarella I consumed!
My travel buddy Shini and I (who happened to be wearing awfully similar attire!) had a little time to explore the city before heading out to view Bottega’s latest project. Charmed by gelato, trams, the magnificent buildings, dogs and the sunshine, I remembered why I was so excited to return to Milan. Like last time, it was just so picturesque. Perhaps it was the smell of Italian food in the air, but I certainly had a smile on my face.
