Walking Through The Alleys Of Venice

Venice almost doesn't seem real walking through all the small streets and alley ways, but more like from a movie set. I don't think I have ever been to a place where there were so many beautiful buildings in such a small area and I can truly see now why it is such a popular destination! The temperature is boiling here, (even though Venice is surrounded by water), which is great as it means I can finally pull out my shorts and T-shirts!
Today I just chose a casual outfit, including these Zara crochet shorts that I have been longing to wear in a post for ages! I paired it with this blue and white stripped top- a pattern seen in most places along Venice's canals, as worn by many gondolier drivers.

On The Way To Italy!


I have just arrived in Italy, where I am going to be spending the next couple of weeks holidaying around. I am starting my journey in Venice, and although I have only spent a couple of hours here, I can already tell I am going to love it. The boat journey to the island I am staying on was beautiful, and after a stressful day of a flight at 4:00 in the morning, only to miss our connecting flight, I felt it had paid off! Looking forward to lots of ice-creams, pizzas and sunshine! The temperature here is 35 degrees today which is boiling in comparison to the UK!
We are travelling to Florence later on in the week, and I am not too sure on how WiFi situation in the places we are staying, but I shall try to post as often as possible!


The view from the plane flying over the French Alps was amazing!


Due to missing the connecting flight, I had time in Paris airport to pick up a French Vogue
