When I left London to move to Amsterdam what really made me sad was leaving my friends behind. So, when your best friend decides to get on a plane to come and spend your birthday together I couldn’t think of a more perfect gift and a most special birthday! If I say it was extremely perfect and fun, it’s still not enough to describe it!
We stayed at the Bauers, a luxury hotel just steps away from Piazza S.Marco. Imagine the most beautiful terrace on the water where we spent the longest breakfasts and aperitivo hours.. It was just too good! We made sure our days were slow and enjoyable, just enough time for multiple cappuccinos, a stroll around the canals, a boat trip, a gondola ride, outfit shoots and the most yummy lunches and dinner with way too much vino.
I decided to wear something really comfy but chic and edgy at the same time. Here, meet my new Style Butler fringed jacket! I love the classic style of black suede mixed with the fringes edgy details. I have been looking for the perfect one for a long time!! A basic boyfriend jeans and white tee combo suddenly is not so average anymore. I kept it casual with my latest sneakers addiction I got just the day before leaving and added gold details to give the look a little festival vibe. I loved the long rosary necklaces from Amen layered on the basic white t-shirt and a hand candy thanks to Jewelry by Add.
Nothing feels better than slipping into your feet a pair of brand new white sneakers. After all, within all the seasonal trends experimenting, the combo ‘denim + white t-shirt + blazer + sneakers’ is still the coolest one in my opinion!
When they say there are no distances nowadays, I could not agree more. All the ridiculously cool and adventurous plans we made before I left, are now becoming reality and any occasion, fashion week and birthday is a good enough excuse to jump on a plane and meet up with Lorna. Drinking wine while planning the next trip is becoming our favourite thing to do.. Expect more sunny Italian destinations this summer!!
