I’m half Italian and let me tell you, I didn’t fall in love with fashion without a heavy hand and a healthy helping of fashionista 101 from my famiglia. While perusing Italian Elle, I found some amazing shots of the locals decked out at Fashion Week in Milan and fell inspired all over again. I even pulled out my gingham balloon top blouse and saddle shoes I bought there two years ago in honor of my inspired moment.
I’m usually opposed to coordinating or matching anything, but there’s something so chic about this lavender blouse with matching sneakers. I mean, they’re sneakers for the love of god and they still look glamorous.
Embrace the Italiana I know exists in each and every one of you. A little flair, a little Euro love goes a long way.
