There are so many reasons why I love Milan. I will be taking you on a tour of Milan from my trip there last month in the next few days. My first taste of Italy was Florence last year, so I had a high standard of what an Italian city should be like. Milan did not let me down. But, of course, there was pasta and lots of it. So no complaining either way. For now, here is a quick peek at my first day in this vibrant city.

More From Florence

March 13, 2016

florence-hotel1

A rainy Florence conjures up so many stories in my head. All the textures that I found in my beautiful Florence hotel room did the same. Some stories a little sad. Some incredibly upbeat and happy. Most oscillating somewhere between the two extremes. Gosh, how I love stories. All types. I love the feeling of getting lost in the shoes of others. They turn me more into the romantic that I sometimes think that I am in my head, even though I know that the romance is never as elevated as that in real life. But sometimes it’s nice to think that it can exist like that for even a little bit. Oh love and the idea of love. So unexpected. Okay, now enjoy my very, very last photos of Florence.

Moments from Firenze

Natalie and I made sure to visit the stunning Il Duomo di Firenze during our trip to Florence. The cathedral was even more grand than I imagined. We felt so tiny surrounded by its majestic and hovering manner, and lingered for quite a while going around the entire architectural masterpiece to explore every angle and all its depths. The day was overcast, which gave the city a quiet calm feeling despite the tourists that trekked its streets with selfie sticks and point and shoots. Once again, we explore by foot and got lost in the streets. Skinny alleys making up the puzzle that we attempted to put together this last afternoon in the city. No wrong turn was actually wrong. Every wrong turn was just exactly right. It just brought us to someplace new that we would try to remember for our next trip back. A spot for a plate of pasta being the top of our list. Locals were super friendly as we asked for directions with very lost faces on and trying not to be annoying with our very little sense of direction. Little cars beeping at us as we crossed the streets without looking both ways. As the city lost its light, it didn’t lose its sparkle. The light rain turning the streets into a mirror that reflected off the golden buildings. Even in the dark, the city felt bright. It felt like magic and I let it all soak in as much as I can. It was hard to go back to NYC after this trip. More last photos from this trip coming soon . . .

Denim in Firenze

Another overcast afternoon exploring the dreamy and narrow streets of Florence (Firenze). It’s always interesting to me to notice the things that draw my eye when I’m traveling and exploring a new city. While the city of Florence as a whole is whimsical and grand with its neutral colors that radiate like a calmly burning fire off its buildings and streets, it’s the little colorful details that sweep me up the most. Like a gate painted a bold blue against all tan. A baby pink bike peeking out from a corner of navy blue and forest green ones. A marigold blanket hanging to dry from a window and fluttering in a breeze that you can imagine to be a summer breeze. A red stop sign that doesn’t yell, but kindly tells you to slow down and look both ways. A drive by rainbow melody of happy balloons taking the party wherever it goes. Little magical moments like this catch me eye, and I can’t help but do everything I can to capture them. So I can always remember. Much like how I’m drawn to the bold blue of this denim skirt. It’s casual but holds significance in its shape and saturation. I’m from California, so my denim goes with me everywhere I go.

Here are more lovely denim skirts I’m a fan of:
