I miei amici! Here I am in the city of Matera in Southern Italy living the sweet life…la dolce vita! Late last night this spectacular town came up on me glowing atop these ancient cliffs. I was welcomed with open arms by locals and new friends waiting for me on a twinkling terrace with wine and food. It’s like a dream. My room looks out upon the most spectacular scenery, the ancient city behind me and the breathtaking landscape before me. Before revealing to you this special place I thought I would share a personal style post. I am always so excited to plan my travel wardrobe. In such a beautiful traditional place, I feel it’s only fitting to embrace the romance of it all with flowing skirts and large brim hats. Don’t you agree?
I am wearing a Vena Cava skirt , Forever 21 shirt, Urban Outfitters hat, Louis Vuitton flats, and a vintage necklace. Follow my adventures this week on facebook, twitter, and tumblr! More from Basilicatta in Italy soon here on the blog and hoping life is so sweet for you wherever you are…
Paris really is a very colorful city. Ironically, Parisian’s favorite color seems to be black when it comes to their wardrobes. As a colorful girl from California, I tend to stick out from the rest of the crowd daring to wear not just one color but even two at a time! *Gasp!Quelle horreur* I am so inspired by all the beautiful colors, including that delicious Ladurée green. Just the sight of it makes my mind wander with thoughts of sinking my jaws into some delicate and delicious little pastries. I get a lot of emails and from readers saying how much you love the Ladurée posts, so don’t worry there is plenty to go around. Today Ladurée green is my wardrobe inspiration. What’s better than mixing my two favorite passions? Gourmandises and fashion!

If I look a bit too happy in these pictures it’s because I took them in the morning on my way out the door to work. I was trying extra hard to look awake as I am not a morning person…hehe. Now!
