some of you will know i am off to italy on thursday. i am so, so happy about this!
i'm going to ischia with raffaele (an ex who remains a very dear friend) and, since his family live on the island, we'll be staying in a vacant family house for two weeks.
raffaele and i have already been to various places in italy together - milan, rome (see above) & sicily - so this is a continuation of our italian adventures. i'm so excited to meet his 90-year-old nonna who i hear makes *incredible* pasta and to scoot around on the back of a vespa checking out all the island's beaches, restaurants, markets and bars.
we're meeting in rome and getting a train to naples. we're also planning to visit capri and pompei. i'll be sure to post some holiday pictures here when i get back. but, for now, imagine that i will mainly be channeling these women in a bid to feel suitably stylish.
this year, i found my capsule wardrobe board on pinterest especially useful in helping me gather inspiration for what to buy or wear on holiday.
i placed my first ever ASOS order. i was very impressed as i hate, hate, hate shopping and this took all the stress out of it. i love all my purchases and also got some swedish hasbeens from amazon so i'm all set!
images sources - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & the final photo is mine.
ps - since ischia is where the talented mr ripley was filmed, i'll also be channeling marge and her ability to write so that i return fresh and ready to attack my thesis with renewed vigour.
pps - i got a new super duper lens for my canon DSLR for my birthday so i am SO excited to try it out in italy and you'll see the results when i'm home.
