The morning after our
The morning after ourlovely dinner at Osteria Francescana, we had a few hours to spare in Modena before making our way to Tuscany. As our hotel, Hotel Cervetta 5 was situated right in the city centre, we were able to effectively use the little time that we had to explore the historic centre by foot and also sample some simpler but delicious Italian food in one of the alleyways.
Modena is synonymous with balsamic vinegar. Fashion and style certainly did not cross my mind because Milan would normally get the first mention before anyone else. I was pleasantly surprised at how fashionable the locals were! I couldn’t help but to gawk at all the immaculately dressed men and ladies who seemed to just get it. Camera in one hand, I had a strong urge to take spy photos while fearing that I would be caught out and shamed. Sartorialist Failed.
It was such a joy to wander around in a foreign city with my new husband, taking in as much information as our 5 senses would allow us to. That feeling was simply incredible.
This faux leather dress from Zara is such an easy piece to slip on. The fact that it’s not tight fitting makes it summer appropriate. Although the design of the dress is simple, the faux leather material has managed to another dimension to it. I’m taking this to Cape Town with me (along with a heap of other clothing that I’ve featured on this blog before). Hopefully I’ll be able to work some magic with my pairings to avoid duplications! Fighting back the urge to purchase something new just because I’m going overseas.
I’m not sure whether I’ll have time to prepare and schedule new posts while I’m away but if I don’t, be sure to follow my travels on instagram @wllwproject. Looking forward to share Cape Town through our lenses with you.
