I thought I’d share a bright and happy place with you all today because I know how hard it is to go back to work after a long weekend. [You may think I don’t because I work for myself but … I assure you. I have had COUNTLESS other jobs before blogging full-time so I do get it.] During my trip to Europe last month, I got to check off one of the places I’ve had on my travel lust list for quite some time … Burano … and it did NOT disappoint.
I will be sharing a travel diary from my day in Burano with you all later this week … if this trip allows! I still have to put it together but, if not this week, then definitely next week 🙂
The outfit in this post is made up of basic wardrobe staples that are perfect for early Spring travel or just everyday errands. This striped oxford is so soft and comfortable. It was really cold this morning so it was the perfect option, along with a lightweight sweater that I eventually didn’t need. I bought these light pink Tod’s loafers [I looked everywhere for the exact ones I’m wearing in the color I’m wearing but couldn’t find where you could buy them in that color; these are the loafers though] and I couldn’t have been more in love with them … until they gave me a slight blister. They definitely need a little breaking in, with the warmth of a hair dryer. I still need to do that when I get back. But I do think they’re very comfortable and can’t wait to stretch out the back when I have a little more time on my hands upon arriving back in the States. If you’re looking for something really similar that is a little bit more affordable … THIS option is essentially the same and comes in multiple colors. I like the light blue ones although I feel like the pink goes with a little bit more of my wardrobe, personally.
There is another place that we’re going to be visiting that is somewhat similar to Burano while we’re staying here in the Amalfi Coast area. I can’t wait to visit it, explore it and share it with you! I’ve heard it’s a can’t miss because it’s beautiful … but also because it’s not flooded with tourists. Give it time though … social media is doing crazy things for the travel industry and I am positive there are some hidden gems that are going to be as popular as Santorini and Burano and Venice one day!
Anyway, I hope you had a lovely Memorial Day Weekend! Kristan, my stepmom and I ventured up to the local town of Massa Lubrense and enjoyed lunch with my friend Sarah Kate, who just got married to her long-time beau, Domenico, over the weekend! Kristan hadn’t seen her in years and they really wanted to cross paths during our time here. I was happy we were able to make that happen. Afterwards, Kristan and I went over to their hotel [they were insistent, I swear!] and lounged by this amazing infinity pool. The view is absolutely incredible and it was extremely quiet.
Today, Kristan, her mom and my step-mom are setting off on a hike called Path of the Gods. I’ve heard it’s incredible! Stay tuned to Snapchat and Insta-stories for updates throughout the day! 🙂 Have a great day, y’all! Thanks for stopping by! xo.
I need a pair of Tod’s!! They seem like the perfect shoe for traveling. Hope you had a fab holiday weekend 🙂
Thank youuu! xo.
