The Monday Piece - Capture Tuscan Style, Shopping In Tuscany

Tuscany is well known for it's stunning landscapes, delicious Italian food, traditions, history and of course...shopping! Whether you're shopping for fashion and accessories to capture the authentic Tuscan style, or tasting the delicious local delicacies, Tuscany has a plethora of open air markets, boutiques, and traditional shops to satisfy your needs. Tuscany is famous for it's historic fashion houses, including Emilio Pucci - synonymous with geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colors, i've featured below a full set of beautiful Pucci pieces. The full length pink dress would look right at home on a Tuscan holiday whilst eating a classic fresh Panzanella with a glass of deep red wine in hand - i'd pair it with a chic pair of geometric sunglasses and satin sandals, and a golden glow to the skin too. The fringed multicoloured bag is full of fun and colour, it reminds me of strings of spaghetti hanging from the bag which is so very quirky and Tuscan - amore! Gucci, founded by Guccio Gucci in Florence in 1921, is the epitome of Italian style and flair, Gucci employed skilled workers in basic Florentine leather crafts, attentive to finishing, which still resonates with the brand today. The prominent designs feature elaborate, intricate prints, famed worldwide for the superior quality and Tuscan style. The ruffle dress below is ultra feminine and flirty, the bright colours and ruffle design epitomises the fun Tuscan fashion house, i'm also obsessed with Gucci accessories - the blue embroidered handbag with the classic bamboo handle is beautifully designed, i love the practicality of the box style shape and shoulder strap too. All of the stunning pieces reflect Tuscany and the beautiful country of Italy, the bright colours and bold prints are historic in the brands Tuscan roots - capturing the pure essence of Tuscan style.

Fashion designers including Pucci, Gucci and Robert Cavalli, all embrace and continue to transcend the classic Italian fashion vibe coveted by fashion lovers worldwide. The bright colours, patterns and outstanding designs relate to the lush green landscapes and bright blue skies of the Tuscan countryside, and the food too - the traditional fresh food featuring the bold colours of the Italian flag like tomatoes and basil surely would have inspired the country's top designers. Tuscany is full of colour and life, whether you're driving through the lush landscape of the forest green countryside, browsing the historic streets of Florence, or dining out in a traditional Italian restaurant on Pappardelle sulla lepre, Tuscany exudes vibrancy, history and excitement which is reflected within the triumphant fashion houses. I'm desperate to get myself to Tuscany to experience all of it's gloriousness first hand - and also to raid the shops at the designer outlets where you can pick up top Italian designer pieces for a fraction of the price! Shopping in Tuscany looks totally divine, even if you're not looking to splash the cash the 'Tuscan look' is easily achievable on the Italian high street. Someone book me a plane ticket and villa stay asap!

The Monday Piece - Monochrome Star Print

This week's Monday Piece is on monochrome star print! A quick outfit post to share my black and white outfit from last weekend - shirts are some of my most worn pieces as they can be worn with pretty much any bottoms whether it's jeans, a skirt or shorts. I've got a few star print shirts and always go back to them if i'm stuck on what to wear, i've worn this Boohoo style with my Zara white skort and a studded Furla bag that has some tough gold hardware! This weekend we had an extra day off so we made the most of it by heading out and about to the cinema to watch King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, it was so good and full of action so definitely check it out if that's your thing - we also grabbed takeaway food, coffee, and did a bit of shopping, there are so many sales at the moment so that seemed like a good excuse!

Summer Ruffles

Ruffles and flamenco style pieces have really caught my eye lately, i love the fun styles and they look so feminine and pretty! Layered ruffle skirts add an extra dimension to your look and can be dressed up as much as you like - i fancy going all out with a peplum off the shoulder ruffle top and a pair of knot front heeled mules like the pair below from N.21. If you're not fully committed to the style to spend lots of $$$ then there are lots of high street versions too in all the usual places like Missguided and Topshop, this printed fabric pair are a bargain and look so comfy too! Asymmetric styles also look great with ruffles, i'm spying on this boohoo big sleeved shirt, it looks ultra girly and has so much volume - i'd pair it with some cut off denim shorts and slides for a laid back day time look. The Fendi bag has a little extra fanciness too, plus the light pink leather and silver hardware is ideal for Summer months and finishing off a pretty outfit!
