Cinque Terre, Italy |9/15/18 – 9/16/18

Cinque Terre is somewhere I have seen all over Pinterest and Tumblr and I finally got the chance to go! This place is extremely beautiful with color. It’s a great mix of relaxing beaches, historic towns, and mountainous hikes- something for everyone.

From Florence, it takes around two hours to get to Cinque Terre by train. We took one train to Pisa, and from Pisa we took a second one to La Spezia. One of the many things I love about living in Italy is how easy, fast, and cheap it is to travel just about anywhere in Italy and all of Europe!

***I plan on having a post about this full outfit up very shortly. It is one of my favorite outfits I have worn and I think that it deserves its own separate post.***

If you have the time when you go here, definitely spend some time lounging on the beach. The water is crystal clear and perfect on a hot Italian day. You also have the most amazing view of the Mediterranean coast.

***p.s. my blue bikini is from Amazon*** it was very inexpensive and for someone who doesn’t prefer a lot of swimming or other water activities, I don’t like to spend a lot of money on a bathing suit and the quality of this is pretty good!

Manarola – the most beautiful place in all of Cinque Terre 

Our group stayed the night at an Airbb in La Spezia which is actually a huge, poppin town! I would have never guessed it but it was pretty neat. Staying the night with everyone was a great time but I do think that in the future, if I go back, I would make Cinque Terre a day trip. If you don’t take a hike or relax at the beach, it is possible to go to all five places.

Do I look like I’m about to take some kids to the amusement park? Absolutely.

Total 90s vibes is what I was going for with this outfit. I paired this satin top (I think it’s lingerie but I’m not sure, it was $4 on clearance at Target and I couldn’t pass it up) with a Nasty Gal fanny pack and my FAVORITE Fila Disruptor II chunky dad sneakers.

XOXO, Green Blazer

Happy Tuesday! I made a goal this year to branch out of my “set” style and try out new things. I tend to dress pretty edgy using mainly neutral colors but I don’t want to stay in that aesthetic because there is only so much one can do within it.

For this look I paired a bright, mint green blazer that I thrifted with a faux leather pleated skirt and white pussybow blouse. My original idea was not to be preppy and gossip girl-esque but the outcome looks kind of like I stepped straight off the show. Not only do I get those vibes, but I also felt like I could be strutting down a street in Paris.

Remember that you don’t have to stick to one style to define yourself. It is so much more fun to try out other aesthetics and to add your own little twist.
