For the last leg of our trip, we stayed in a wonderful  town outside of Parma! We took strolls under the Tuscan sun, explored the villa and its grounds, took in some of the local flavor and ate tons of Parmesan cheese :)….it is famous in this region and it is the best cheese I have ever had.

For these lazy days strolling the streets and bike riding, I chose to break in my new boots I got in Florence and to wear my fun and casual striped dress from Ann Taylor Loft.

This sums up my Italian adventures. It was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget!

THE CANVAS – 

Dress : H&M (old) ~ Jacket : Target ~ Shoes : Halogen ~
Sunglasses : Prada ~ Necklace : J.Crew (love this) ~ Bracelet :Bindy ~
Watch : Burberry ~ Hat : Nordstrom

When I got off the train station in Venice, my mouth literally dropped open and I was stunned…Venice was one of the coolest cities I have ever seen! If was amazing seeing all of the gondola’s and water taxis waiting to pick you up to take you to your hotel (we ended up taking a water bus haha), and the beautiful bridges that covered all of the amazing canals.

Although my dad and brother weren’t thrilled with the idea (they are total guys haha) we ended up riding a gondola later that night at sunset. It was so cool to here about some of the history of the city, travel through the little canals and then go out into the main port area right when the sun was setting (it was breathtaking)!!

We did happen to go there during a very busy time, the Venice Film Festival had just started. So the only thing that would have made this spot better was if I had seen George Clooney or Brad Pitt strolling through the streets 😉

I was able to get this awesome pair of leather boots while there (don’t worry, I have worn them every day since I have gotten home lol).

These leggings and sweater from Zara were a great find while shopping over there because one of the mornings in Florence was a little chilly.
