Getaway | Venice, Italy

I was so excited this weekend to return to one of my favorite cities in the world, Venice! There is something magical and romantic about the winding streets and canals, and I was thrilled to spend the day there with my boyfriend. The only way to travel through the city is by boat, water taxi, or gondola, and wow is the bright turquoise water ever beautiful! I especially enjoyed the architecture of the city, which has much more Eastern influence than what I’ve studied thus far this semester. A day of strolling the streets and watching the boats go by was simply lovely, and we stopped at a local’s favorite for little sandwiches and Spritz’s, a typical Venetian drink. It’s safe to say that Venice holds a special place in my heart!

The temperatures in Italy are starting to warm up quite a bit, but with Venice being on the water I decided to play it safe with a maxi skirt, crepe Topshop tank, and Brandy Melville sweater. For the rest of the weekend in Florence, temperatures in the high seventies had me in breezy dresses and lace-up sandals.

Have a chic week!

xx, Laina
