Ciao Bella!

What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago." ~ Erica Jong

Hi everyone!! Hope you are all enjoying your Labor Day and getting some rest & maybe a last summer BBQ in! Fall is my favorite season by a landslide, so I am excited September has started!

I got back yesterday from a wonderful week in Italy, and while not exactly a relaxing vacation, Italy is somewhere that every single person should go in their lifetime. There is so much history, beauty, love, and indulgence there - we had such a fantastic time!

I took a lot of OOTD pics, so I'll share a few at a time this week. Hope you all enjoy - let me know what you think! I promise that I will start working on returning comments & all of your blogs soon - my kids start preschool, soccer, dance, & gymnastics this week, so again, it will be busy, but I promise to find time for my fellow bloggers! xoxo

Out & About in Florence:

Dress: Double Zero from Julie's Boutique
Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviator
Shoes: Aerosoles

On the way to Forte dei Marmi:
