ITALIA

October 2, 2015

My prolonged absence has been the cause of some exciting news – I have moved to Italy for my 3rd year abroad! Just south of Milan in the most bellisima town. Here is the view of the covered bridge – just sublime.

 As you can imagine I am super excited for the food, the fashion and the people I am going to meet. I have been wondering what on earth to blog about while I’m here, as street style isn’t huge. One thing I have found while travelling around Italy in the last few years is the Italians aren’t ALL ‘fashionable’. So instead I am just going to share with you little things I see and buy or am inspired by.

 Starting with my first truly Italian purchase. (It has been so hard avoiding all the shoes in the sale) I bought these beautiful navy pleated chiffon palazzo trousers from M Milano, they are so comfortable and elegant. There were loads of mosquitos when I arrived, sadly I learnt about this the hard way, so I always need to cover up my legs while remaining cool and these trousers were the perfect solution!

Accompanied by my little fashion updates will be my new food diary! My idea is to start cooking from Marcella Hazan’s ‘The Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking’. I have chosen not cook from the Italian version because I would rather not spend hours translating into English, but I plan on buying a small Italian baking book! Each week I’ll try out one or two of Hazan’s recipes and post my fails and hopefully successes here on Fashionable People.

Keep a look out for my first attempt soon!
