Under Italian Sun. Amalfi Vacation.

This time our destination is the gorgeous town of Amalfi . We decided to try on the local life and rented a villa with the most picturesque view.ย  I can’t describe all the sunsets we were able to catch, so beautiful and breathtaking . We found a pathway that goes all the way from the villa to the town center and every turn of that walk views are breathtaking. The whole town is cozy and while slightly touristy, it managed to keep its charm.

Another fabulous day brought us to these Ancient Greek Temples. Paestum is an often overlooked archaeological site in the southern Amalfi Coast. To say it’s breathtaking isn’t an overstatement. Paestum is located just south of Salerno, and it easy to get to by car. The Greek temples are so massive, and in such good condition, it’s staggering to know how old they are (dating from about 600 to 450 BC) and that they’re still standing.
It was an unexpectedly peaceful site to visit. There were very few tourists around, and we truly felt as though we had the place to ourselves. We will never forget this incredible experience!

‘Come back to Sorrento’ is on my mind when I look back at our pictures from Sorrento. This citrus-blossom-scented, southern-Italian town celebrated for millennia. Sorrento is a picturesque place with a spectacular cliff-top setting facing Mount Vesuvius across the glittering Bay of Naples. It’s the place where locals go when Amalfi Coast starts getting busy with tourists. Fantastic restaurants, shops selling lemon-themed souvenirs and perfect beaches – everything around just calls to relax and have a lazy day. And that’s exactly what we did with a bit of shopping and a lot of eating ;-))). Felt in love with this town.

We decided that the gorgeous Amalfi coast line has to be experienced from the water. So we caught the boat from Amalfi to Positano and enjoyed a spectacular views all the way to our destination. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we truly had fun exploring and getting lost in this ritzy “one-street” town.ย  Btw, famous Lemonย Sherbet is a must to taste! Delicious.

Vacations can’t last forever and our last day in Ravello was very sweet with a bit of lemon ๐Ÿ‹in it . We walked around Villa Rufolo for hours, had some coffee at the cutest little restaurant at the Piazza Duomo before going back to Amalfi.
Our trip was amazing and we are so happy that we were able to share this precious experience with the most important people in our lives – our lovely parents. Amalfi will be always in our hearts ๐Ÿ’•.

One short walk trough the Rome before heading home… Arrivederci, Italia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜, hope to see you again soon…

WHAT I’M WEARING

Gucci Vibes

Hello, my darlings, here is another style tip for you to make your outfit look more… let’s say “upscale” or “fashionable”.ย  With all these Gucci Vibes going around for the past couple of years, you just can’t ignore it anymore. We love crazy stripes,ย  bold colors and statement details that brand has to offer. The only thing is not all of us can spend a small fortune for a top or pair of shoes.ย  And you don’t have to. Here is the simple way to achieve this desirable Gucci look without breaking your bank account.

We all have a simple (or maybe not that simple) white shirt or blouse. If not, check out links down below for some options.ย  The secret is this beautifully done striped bow tie. The easiest way is tying a bowย  from striped ribbon, that you can find at any craft store. If you are a DIY girl, it can be a fun and very cute project (or an awesome gift idea) for you and your girlfriends. Add some kind of brooch, pin crystals, even bee decorations and you have your own, original “designer inspired” jewel, that you can use on many different occasions.ย  Etsy also have some fabulous styles to offer. Linking couple of them as well.

Now you can style it as you desire. I am wearing my old Zara navy blue sailor shorts with golden accents and red heels from Prada.ย  Again, there are some options for you, feel free to check it out.

Last but not least trow on a fabulous pair of black shadesย  and you are good to go. @foster_grant_sunglasses kindly sent me a small collection of great shadesย  and let me tell you, I was really surprised how chic,ย  glamorous but really affordable they are.ย  Check them out if you love sunglasses as much as I do.
