We all know I love a good city break, but after our wedding in Lake Garda where was I to pick? There was Venice, Milan and Verona all a train journey away! We decided to go to Verona and do that corny thing tourists do and put a padlock on Juliet’s balcony cause, you know, you have to. Here’s a little City Style for you- Verona Style.
Every city has it’s nooks and cranny’s, it’s little alleys and it’s spectacular open squares. Verona was no different. Every corner was a photo opportunity, from the graffiti’d love wall to the amazing Arena di Verona. I needed to make sure I was cool, comfortable and of course, chic.
The main dilemma for me on city breaks is one that is becoming less embarassing to talk about as I notice more solutions appearing in shops… CHAFING! Most of the time, I sneak a pair of shorts under my dress, but sometimes you just don’t want the layers. I found these beautiful cream slack trousers in Zara before the holiday and I was sold for £25.99.I found a white chiffon material top in River Island in the sale for £8 and paired it to make a little of an archaeological look.No Shrinking Violet
You must excuse the messy bun, in my outfit planning I hadn’t considered the overwhelming heat from my hair and had to pull together a top bun with three hair pins found in the bottom of my bag!
I know unfortunately Zara aren’t friendly to all sizes- these are XL and normally I struggle to fit anything in there, so ASOS Curve have a solution for us curvier folks if you like the trend and they’re only £24.50….as for the vest, most stores stock some sort of white vest like this nowadays, I must have found four in New Look and Tesco- they’re part of my work wardrobe now.
Ciao for now,
