I bet you're wondering what it was that made my Easter well... Italian. Well for starters, almost my entire outfit that I wore was purchased while I was living in Italy. My floral dress was one of my favorite pick ups from Zara which is one of the best stores imaginable. I wish that we had it here in Seattle. Unlike H&M, you can purchase Zara pieces online. My leather sandals are another one of my favorite purchases while I was in Italy. They are so unique and so comfortable.
Dress: Zara. Sandals: Shoe store in Italy. Sunnies: Marc By Marc Jacobs. Handbag: Marciano.
Watch: Michael Kors. Necklace: Kate Spade. Lipstick: NARS "Heat Wave"
To polish off this Italian Easter, my parents and I had dinner at The Old Spaghetti factory and sipped some Chianti wine. Afterwards, we went to an Italian restaurant in Ballard called Piccolino's to have a night cap. My mom and I sipped lemoncello lemon drops while my dad sipped a vodka martini. We talked all about my travels to Italy and how I need to go back there. The manager of Piccolino's was an Italian man with a thick accent that I hadn't realized I missed until he opened his mouth. I told him that I took an Italian language class so he tested my skills. I could tell him my name, my age and where I lived in Florence and that was about it. None the less it made my knees weak for Italy and I'm now scheming how I can move back!
