Lace + Leather in Cortona
Date: October 5, 2016 | Location: Cortona, Italy
It was raining in Cortona when we awoke, but that didn't put a damper on my excitement for the day ahead of us. We had picked up some gnocchi (our breakfast pasta of choice), lox and fresh, green grapes from the local grocer the evening before. As we started to boil water in the quaint kitchen, I opened up the windows of our Airbnb apartment to see one of the most breathtaking views I have ever laid eyes on.
I took in the view the best I could before shuffling upstairs for a quick shower. I decided to let my hair air dry, which turned out to be for the best because my hairdryer didn't seem to be taking to the converter we brought along for our trip. It was a lot cooler than I had expected, so I ditched by crop top/skirt outfit for something more weather appropriate. I decided on a new, feminine top from Free People, my high-waisted jeans and vintage leather jacket. My Madewell boots and belt completed the look and just like that, we were out the door for a day of wine tasting and exploring Cortona and the surrounding Tuscan region.
