Looking around Lucca

August 19, 2015

Being the rather fidgeting person I am I couldn't content myself with endless days lazing by the pool side. So on one of the hot and sunny days I dragged my boyfriend to the town of Lucca, a short bicycle ride from the villa. We stopped for lunch at Cantine Bernardini, where I had a gorgeous pasta with black truffle and a glass of prosecco. Then we wandered the winding cobbled streets until we found the Torre Guinigi, a great big tower with oaks growing on top. After surveying the view of the town and beyond we finished the day with a gelato (or two). Take me back, please!

  1. Sounds like a lovely day - made even lovelier by this dress! I've never heard of this designer before but her clothes are so pretty - will be adding some to my wishlist. Oh and that sun hat is perfect on you!

    1. Thank you! She's relatively unknown, I can't remember how I found her but I've been a fan for years and I was super stoked when she let me borrow a dress for my holiday. When I make enough money I want to make it mine!

      Psst, the hat was pinned to my head because it was so windy, looked hilarious when the wind blew it up, like it was held on by black magic!

    1. Thank you! I actually found it in Urban Outfitters while my boyfriend was shopping, I was wearing an ill-sized white belt at the time so I bought this one and took the old one straight to a charity shop.
