Venice











Sunglasses - Primark
Necklace - New Look
Top - Mango
Shorts - Missguided
Shoes - Topshop
Watch - Daniel Wellington

I picked up this top in Milan, and although the rest of my wardrobe for this holiday is exclusively monochrome, I couldn't resist a small pop of colour for this colour city. I traded my Birkenstocks for these Topshop senso inspired sandals and don'd my tip essental Grafea bag and Daniel Wellington watch. I also picked up a little trip memento (Venice leather strap), which became a theme throughout the holiday. 

When Im old and bored of the rest of the world I am moving to Venice. This place is indescribable. I have wanted to go here ever since I was little, I've scoured the internet for pictures, but nothing compares to being there. Sat in a little bar I watched a little old man opening the shutters to his apartment by the water front and tend to his flowers and it honestly looks like the most peaceful life you could hope for.

Unfortunately gondolas are expensive, so I didn't experience that tradition but since you can do punting down at the river in Oxford, for £20, I wasn't too fussed. So we got around by water bus (I didn't even know this was a thing?!) but we scored lucky with our apartment, being in the centre of everything, meaning nearly everything was walking distance, but realistically, you do not need to go on the water to experience venice.
