A Blue Skirt on the Amalfi Coast

Traveling through the Amalfi Coast was absolutely incredible.  It provided the perfect back drop for some early summer time fashion.  A friend gave me an adorable and comfortable blue skirt and I found plenty of use for it on this most recent trip.

The skirt itself satisfies a variety of needs for me:

  1. Comfort
  2. Pop of color
  3. Flexible fit for my post pregnancy figure

When in Positano, I paired the skirt with a graphic tee I purchased at H&M.  When on our boat ride to Capri, I wore a simple white v-neck to match with the beautiful sea we were sailing on.  I really enjoyed how both outfits came out, but for future reference, I would not recommend heels in Positano!   😆

A Springtime Outfit

My brother and his girlfriend recently arrived to visit Matilda, and we spent Sunday in downtown Zurich.  In honor of the gorgeous, sunny, spring day, I opted for a springtime outfit.  I paired my floral embroidered boots with my new Tara Jarmon coat.

We started our journey at Zeughauskeller for a traditional Swiss lunch and then introduced my brother to Sprungli.  Sprungli has the most amazing hot chocolate/coffee/caramel drink called a Sprungli Caramelito.  Yum!  The entire city seemed to be outside given the weather, and we enjoyed people watching while sipping our delicious beverages.

We then wandered over to the carnival that popped up at Burkliplatz.  It was a super fun and colorful background, perfect for some outfit photos!

Floral Embroidery is Everywhere this Spring

Floral embroidery appears to be all the rage for this spring.  Almost every fashion blogger or major designer I follow is touting this trend and I am absolutely in love with it.

I also appreciate how cleverly floral embroidery is being incorporated into one’s daily outfit.  The landscape spans beyond just dresses and the trend has made its way to boots, bags and tops as well.

Blogger Rachel Martino was my original inspiration for today’s blog and my most recent purchase.  She paired embroidered boots with a cute yet simple ensemble.  After searching online, I found the perfect pair of embroidered boots for myself, made by Sam Edelman.

I ordered them from ShopBop and felt like a kid at Christmas, waiting for them to arrive.  Not only are these boots incredibly cute, but they pair nicely with my Fendi “push present” AND work with most outfits.  The explosion of color ensures they match with almost anything.  This was key as most of my post-pregnancy wardrobe consists of basics from H&M.

As soon as the boots were delivered, I immediately put them on and made an excuse to get out of the house – this mama had some new shoes to show off!  Tony, Matilda and I ventured a few blocks down the street to Rote Fabrik.  The location, which sits along the lake shore, is covered in graffiti and boasts music and mayhem in the summer months.  They have a great, edgy restaurant with simple yet delicious food.  It was the perfect runway for my great new boots.

Sadly the lighting wasn’t the best for showcasing, but hopefully you get the idea.
