Travel Diaries | Venice & Rome

March 17, 2016
Writing up this post really made me wish that I was back in Italy drinking a Bellini and watching the sunset without worrying about reading a law case or going to work. Italy is a place filled with culture, history and fashion and it's amazing when you get to visit the famous places you learnt in your year 5 Italian class. I know photos have been uploaded a little late, but better late than never right?

Needless to say, rome-ing around Rome and Venice wasn't like what I saw in the Lizzie McGuire movie but every corner and street was picturesque and like every other tourist, I'd stop and whip out my camera and take 9879874 photos. The food (!!) and tiramisu and ice cream and all things food was amazing. Despite being told by everyone that I should wear a fanny pack (which I didn't) and bring a half empty suitcase (which I did + an extra bag just in case), I fell in love with the culture, the people and the city instantly.

Taking a water taxi in Venice makes you feel like a million bucks and I highly recommend you take one while you're there. Being in Venice really makes you appreciate having a car back at home- and its air-conditioning during the Summer!

Dinner at St. Marks Square in Venice where we listened to live music, watched pigeons fight for the bread crumbs and watched the summer sunset was one of the best ways to experience the culture in Venice!

Rome on the other hand is a city where history meets modernity- shopping in 5 storey Zara flagship stores at ridiculously cheap prices while picking up new season fashion pieces, making gelato ice-cream a meal after every main meal and saying 'Ciao' became a ritual.

Ciao for now! I hope you've enjoyed the photos and that it inspires you to visit Italy one day- all photos were taken by me using a Fujifilm x10 camera :)

Off the Shoulder!

March 03, 2016
The off-the-shoulder top is a statement piece that was around during the summer, but even though summer has technically ended, who doesn't like an off-shoulder every now and then? This piece can be dressed up or down and thats the reason why I love this piece! Here are 3 ways you can pull off the casual off-the shoulder look.

1 | Jeans
This is where the off-shoulder top becomes the absolute transeasonal piece as it can be worn nicely with a pair of jeans and flats for a casual look. To turn it into a more dressier piece, put on a pair of heels and accessorize!

2 | Pair it with shorts
Depending on the colour of the top, a black pair of shorts will go with almost anything (especially with prints). To give the outfit a more minimalistic look, pair it with white sneakers and a clutch.

3 | With a denim skirt

Pairing the top with a denim skirt gives the outfit a relaxed look. It's also a great piece to transition from summer to autumn. If you're feeling adventurous, try the off shoulder top with a midi skirt and a pair of black heels for an evening look!

No doubt there are different ways to style the off-the shoulder top but these are just 3 simple ways to style it using simple basic pieces found in every girl's closet!
