Italy: Vicenza Part 1

I'm in Italy!!
I really didn't think I'd be blogging this soon, but I actually have a lot of free time this week, since I'm staying with Travis's family in their house in Vicenza before I go traipsing through the major cities. The house, by the way, is amazing. They're stationed there because his Dad is in the military, and they're renting a house on a vineyard and it's freaking beautiful. I took a bunch of pictures, and spaced a few through this outfit post.

Trav actually took all the photos of me, because he's all "I want to be good at photography" lately. Which I am A OK with because it's way easier for me than running back and forth with a tripod. I seriously need to spend some time behind the camera (hello perfect opportunity) so I can get better at taking my own photos.

It's cooler here than in SC. Today we went to a cafe in an old church that had this pretty fresco. Below the building were these huge stretches of tunnel that are now used as a wine cellar. Then we went to my first Italian thrift store! I didn't buy anything (savin my euros) but Travis found a pretty fabulous swimsuit and a vintage travel case. Plus I had a cappuccino! I wish I knew how to speak Italian. I can barely find the words "No parlo Italiano," and I feel like a total lameo tourist.

Anyway, I packed efficiently, so hopefully you won't get bored of my clothes this month! I'll be sure to post lots of photos of Italy on here, too, but make sure you follow me on Instagram if you want to keep up with me. I'm such a lucky girl! Now if only my bangs would behave!

  1. So jealous! I loved Italy (particularly Florence) but I didn't really see much of it because I was there for a short amount of time. It's really beautiful though so I can't wait to see more photos from you. I forgot your hair was brown again and I was like "wait who is that oh yeah". lol. It really is cute though! Plus your outfit kills. It's way too cute to handle!

  2. This might be my very favorite outfit from you. Mixing the casual and dressy, plus it really brings out the highlights in your hair.

  3. So lucky! I would kill to be in Italy right now- it must be amazing! Europe is my dream <3 Alex
