Ciao Bella Roma!

Sunday, February 12, 2017

Another day, another city! Ciao Bella Roma! This city is incredible, so charming and ancient, I got overwhelmed by its beauty. Rome has way more to offer, than I expected. I can surely say, that it is one of my new favorite cities, that I have been to. After only "sleeping" for 5 hours in the bus, we started to explore Rome in two days. There were so many things, that we had to see but we managed the time very well. Since my friend and I are both students, we decided to stay in the Alessandro Palace Hostel, which is centrally located near the Termini station. It is a good place to stay, the rooms were clean and inexpensive, i can only recommend it.

Our first destination was the Colosseum (of course) and the Roman Forum. It was fascinating and incredibly beautiful. Isn't it just breathtaking, when you realize that these buildings are around 2000 years old? The Colosseum is really stunning from the inside and the outside as well. After that, we went to the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain. The Fountain was amazing as well, it was extremely beautiful just like the other places. On both days we had a typical Italian lunch - Pizza! I realized, that even though I live in Milan I haven't been to many Pizzerias yet (about to change!). On the second day we explored the other part of Rome. Places like the Palatine Hill, Gianicolo Hill, Ponte Sisto, Giardino deli Aranci, Santi Bonifacio e Alessio and the Piazza degli Cavalieri di Malta. Here you should stop by and look through the whole. You will be surprised of what you'll see! We did all the things by walking, which is definitely my favorite way to see the beautiful streets, get lost and inspired. Later on it became already dark, but we couldn't leave without seeing the Basilica San Pietro in the Vatican. And again, all I can say is Wow! I was so impressed, everything around here is so huge. I usually don't like to be like a super tourist but it was totally worth it to see all these incredible places in Rome. I will come back again for sure!

One Day In Bologna!

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Ciao Bologna! Since we had a few days off at our university my friend and me decided to explore new beautiful cities in Italy. We both have never visited Bologna, so why not Bologna? It took about 3 hours to reach the city from Milano by bus. The sky was cloudy, but at least it wasn't raining as in Milan. It is definitely smaller than Milan but really beautiful with the vibrant colors of the buildings. Everything had a touch of orange! The streets are narrow, but very enjoyable to walk through and get a litte lost. You can really feel, that you are in Italy. The main place of the city is called Piazza Maggiore. Around there you can find good restaurants and cafeterias. We had a delicious plate of gnocchi and pasta for dinner. In the street Via Piella you can find this super cute "secret window". When you open it, you will have this gorgeous view of a canal, which really gave me some Venice vibes. Bologna is very well known as a Student City. Around the Piazza Verdi they have nice pubs and bars to have drinks at night for very good prices (3.50€ for a cocktail!!). Unfortunately we had to leave at 1AM to catch our next bus to bella Roma!
Have you ever been in Bologna?


Milano Unica - Sir Paul Smith

Thursday, February 02, 2017

Yesterday I had the chance to attend a conference for students with the British designer Sir Paul Smith, which was held at Milano Unica. At the fair, they presented textiles from all over the world, that will become the new trends for Spring/ Summer 2018. Although, we were not able too see everything (huge fair and a lack of time), it was very interesting for me to see the fabrics. I would have loved to share it with you, but as soon as I took out my camera, I got told that photos were not allowed. 
The main reason, why I went there was because of the presentation of Paul Smith. When we entered the room, he was standing right there in front of us. We took the opportunity to shake hands with him and we even took a selfie (which came out a bit blurry, but never mind). He was very friendly and funny. After that, he started with his talk "you can find inspiration in everything", which took about one hour. But it actually felt like 15 minutes, because it was so impressive. He talked about how he got into the fashion industry and the keys to succees. You need to have personality and think differently than the others. I got extremely inspired by the designer and I got reminded not to give up on my dreams. Paul Smith is very smart, generous and extremely down to earth. It was such a pleasure! 

I was wearing this cropped velvet jumpsuit combined with my Moschino belt. It was actually foggy and raining a little bit outside. The good and sunny Milano weather is gone. Next week I am going to Bologna and Rome! I hope the weather will be better over there. Have a good day!

Peach on Black Street Style

Thursday, January 26, 2017

 Last week has been a quite busy week for me... studying for exams and projects, that had to be done. It is such a relief to finish some exams and hand in those projects. But hey, some exams are yet to come (yeiyy)!
Milano has been super sunny lately! But to be honest, it was still too cold to wear my (faux) leather jacket. I went for the layer look with a lace detailed camisole top in a peachy color and a white basic shirt. I'm wearing ripped pants in black with fishnet tights under them and velvet ankle boots to match my top. Wish you all a great weekend! xx

when in Florence...

Thursday, January 19, 2017

Since I had the chance to go to Florence for Pitti Uomo, I decided to stay there for a few days and take the opportunity to explore the city. All I can say is that I love this city! It is very ancient with beautiful architecture and a romantic vibe. We had the perfect weather on Saturday. We went to see the amazing Ponte Vecchio, which is the oldest bridge in Florence. I was also very impressed of the beauty and size of the Duomo di Firenze. It was wonderful during night and daytime. A place, where we had to go was the Uffizi Gallery. An art museum with paintings from the Renaissance era, for example "The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli. It is really different when you see these famous paintings in person. After the Gallery we went to the Palazzo Pitti. I have to say, that this was my favorite place, that we visited in Florence. The palace was incredible, the inside of the palace was breathtaking. If you go to this city, you should really visit this place! For lunch I had a delicious truffle pasta in a cute Italian restaurant (unfortunately I don't remember the name). To finish the day we wanted to see the sunset from above. My friend saw some random stairs and "forced" me to go up there. We walked all the way up and were kind of lost. But god thanks, we met a nice Korean girl, who helped us finding the way to Piazzale Michelangelo. It is an amazing spot to see the sun go down. Despite the long detour we did to reach the place, it was totally worth it. You could see all over Florence and really feel the vibe of the city. It was an amazing and successful trip!
