Happy WIAW lovelies and to the amazing Jenn for organising another fab link up party! She has to be the best party host in blog land right, eh?!
I just got back from beautiful Florence yesterday I thought this week’s WIAW would be the perfect opportunity to show you some of my favourite snap shots that I took whilst I was wandering through the city exploring.
As it was so hot and sunny I decided to keep my outfits pretty simple and non-fussy and I managed top take a few OOTD pics to share with you all:
OOTD: orange strapless top, H&M, khaki utility shorts, Warehouse, orange paisley print head scarf, H&M, swallow drop earrings, Topshop.
OOTD: white and green diamond strapless top, H&M, olive green 3/4 length trousers, H&M, brown suede wedges (my faves!), Sole.
OOTD: nautical stripped dress, Mango, black basic vest top, H&M, thin brown waist belt, Zara, brown suede wedges, Sole.
I have a gazillion more pictures to share with you, but I think I will save them for another time. However, the gigantic Lindt Chocolate store near the Duomo most definitely deserves a mention.
This place was huge so I was in chocolate heaven. They had the standard flavours that we can get in the UK, such as orange, mint, chilli etc. Well I call these flavours standard because they also stocked some gorgeous flavours that I have never even heard of or would have thought of putting together in chocolate. Of course I wanted to buy every unique flavour in the store, but I did show some restraint and picked out the ones that sounded most delicious to me.
Lindt Excellence Chocolate 99% dark chocolate, Lindt Passion Chocolate caramel and fleur de sel, Lindt Passion Chocolate orange and pistachio, Lindt Hazelnut Delux dark, Lindt Creation cherry and chilli, Lindt Creation chocolate mousse, Lindor orange fondant dark chocolate and Lindt Limited Edition dark chocolate with coconut and biscotti. I cannot wait to start getting stuck into these amazing flavoured chocolates.
I also picked up some other Italian treats such as panaforte which is a cake made from dried fruit, nuts and cacao, a mix of Lindt chocolate truffles for Alfie and some gorgeous looking Italian biscuits from a cafe called Gilli for Alfie.
I really wanted to pick up some pesto and pasta sauces too, but my suitcase was already rammed full. I have brought home some amazing pesto ideas though which I am looking forward to trying out and posting up on the blog.
I’m still high from actually going to Florence. It’s such an amazing and exciting city and I’m in love with all things Italian right now. Hopefully, I will be going back to Italy next summer and explore Italy some more- such a beautiful country! It’s just full of so much culture and the food is amazing. I have a future post lined up with all of the restaurants and all of the delicious food that I ate during my stay.
Have you got any holidays planned this summer?
