Neon in Northern Italy


Hi everyone, I hope you all have had (and having) a good weekend.

Today’s post is an outfit post from last weekend’s escapade to Venice, Italy. As it is November now, (what!) it it starting to get that autumn chill in the air that I grown so accustomed to back home, after all, I am from the Midwest. Having it be 70+ degree’s here in the beginning of November seems absurd, so I welcomed the Northern Italian coast with open arms.

The pictures you see here are actually on the Island of Fusina, right outside Venice, which was where we were staying. It was much calmer and the sea was just as beautiful, even on a day of overcast skies.

Since the weather was a little dreary, I brought some color in form of my favorite Zara “highlighter jacket,” as I’ve been calling it. I love jackets that are “outfit-makers” and make a statement, because in (extreme) cold weather, a lot of the time, that is all you see.

Pairing a shocking orange with camel colors brings the sophistication up a notch without loosing any of those personality-infused colors that really speak to who you are.

We’ve already seen the bag, shoes and blouse, but our blogger has a knack for coming up with fresh new ways to wear tried-and tested pieces. Here she pairs the fun polka dot blouse with black faux leather skinnies. The colour brown ties everything together, from the chic tote and delicious animal print slipper flats to the boho vibe hat. The gorgeous collarless coat in shocking orange is undoubtedly the star of the show, it contrasts splendidly with the rich browns, and brightens up even the dreariest of days. The eye-catching oversized tassel necklace is the arty finishing touch. […]
