Fall in Florence

Ciao from Florence! After a long plane ride across the pond, a brief overnight in London & a 2-week orientation in Marina di Pietrasanta, I am finally feeling settled in Firenze! Although I am still getting used to the change of lifestyle, I am very excited for what is to come in the next 3 months abroad. . .


1. Hervé Chapelier – Durable, carry-on bag for weekend trips {Next stop: French Riviera!}

2. Military Jacket – Lightweight & neutral for the crisp fall days

3. HUE Leggings –  Stretchy & comfortable, these are absolute must-haves! {especially on those days you plan on having that extra panini at lunch. . .}

4. Lululemon – A staple for anyone trying to stay fit in style

5. Sperrys –  A cute & supportive shoe to wear while touring the city

6. Sisco + Berluti Stacks – My suitcase just wouldn’t be complete without my stacks {even if they were the reason my bag was overweight . . . resulting in a very heavy carry-on when I had to take them out!}

+ enough tanks, sweaters, boots, leather jackets, scarves, sneaks, high-beam & other odds and ends to fill up two overstuffed suitcases & a carry-on bag!


A Little Help From Lulu

Yet again, it’s another rainy day.

Days like these can be the best excuses to curl up with a mug of Tazo Zen Green Tea and revisit Silver Linings Playbook for the third or fourth time.

Although no one would pass up a chance to spend an afternoon with the dashing duo Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, most of the times we just don’t have a choice. Whether it’s going to class or running errands, nothing seems attractive in such gloomy weather.

Meet my rainy-day-go-to best friend: Lululemon.

Lululemon offers the perfect balance between comfortable and cute.  It shows off your fit physique that you’ve been working on for weeks, yet still gives you the right amount of stretch. Lulu will leave you looking appropriately put together on such rainy days without reaching the “you tried too hard” look.  From pants, crops, tanks and hoodies, the outfit options are endless.

Complete the look by throwing on a baseball hat or a Lulu headband, because on days like these, the last thing you want is that uninvited frizz in your face.

Cute and comfortably, Lululemon will get you through these days, and soon enough you will be back tucked beneath the covers.

Stay dry!
