La Vita Bella


On Micol: Prada Baroque Round sunglasses,  Parker Silk and Leather mini-dress, BCBGMAXAZRIA white blazer.

Phew! This is kind of an epically long post from us but for the first time I'm letting you see more than one, lone, Lauren-cajoled Instagram snap of me and instead a little insight into my own day-to-day steeze. 

My recent ten day trip to Italy was spent between hanging with family at a farmhouse villa on the Tuscany/Umbria border and cavorting with old friends in the heart of Florence. We had a pool at the house and I spent quite a bit of time trying to catch up to Lauren's Mexican getaway tan. I definitely came home about five shades darker.

You can't really tell from these snaps, but I became obsessed with hats while I was in Italy. I borrowed Lauren's straw fedora for everyday pool lounging and my mom's more intense vintage sun hat for exploring the small towns near our villa. You really can't go wrong with a good hat. What also came in handy was my new Rebecca Minkoff bag that is both a shoulder tote AND a backpack. Genius.
