Part III x Final | CHIC Travels | Girls Trip to Italy | Venice

19 May, 2015

Basilica Cattedrale Patriarcale di San Marco (St. Mark's Basilica) during the day and under some renovation.

Piazza San Marco 

This has to be one of my favorite photographs that I captured during my whole trip, it has so much depth and character.

I also like the photo I captured of our Gondolier, it has that "Humans of New York" feel to it that made me keep it and not delete it from my camera.

| ABOVE x BELOW | The famous Grand Canal which is runs all throughout the center of Venice in a shape of an S, eventually leading off on one side to the Venetian Lagoon and the other to Saint Mark Basin.

One of my travel companions, Sandy of Madly Addictive looking pretty good center stage while on our gondola ride.

Yes I borrowed our gondolier's boater hat, because all of you know  just how much I love hats. I regret not buying one of these cuties while I was there, but it gives me a good excuse to go back.

The beauty behind Venice, I believe stands behind all of these worn out buildings that reveal such a charming aesthetic, one that I hope to replicate when I have my own home.

I capturing them, they capturing us, isn't that something special? We both will exist and transcend in each other's lives throughout time in this image. 

My other travel companion being all cute and stuff with the same boater hat I borrowed from our gondolier.

The outfit I one day want to copy, I find it charming and oddly very chic.

Isn't these building a beauty? truly stunning in my eyes.

Hope you enjoyed my CHIC Travel photography of a Girls Trip to Italy | Venice. In case you missed the first two, see Part IPart II. Stay tuned, because next up is Florence.

| CHIC Edit | The Boater Hat

24 April, 2015

Over the years I have developed a severe obsession with hats, I've liked them since I was a kid but more so now than ever. This Spring and summer though, the obsession has become real, particularly with one style of hat that has been sweeping the fashion world, and although I am not too big on following the latest trend or having what all the fashion girls have, this is one I just can't deprive myself of, it just looks so damn good. I already bought one similar to the Lack of Color one in this CHIC Edit and I can't wait to get it in the mail. No joke, I want all of these hats on this list, yes I am crazy enough to want to have a million hats (I can sense my husband somewhere rolling his eyes at me), he always thinks I want anything and everything, he is wrong not anything but everything I want, yes I want! 

I mean my birthday is coming in two weeks (hint hint).

Poncho Life

23 April, 2015

Hey there, it's been a while since I post any outfit looks, I have been on such a slump these days, it's so hard to get your booty out of it. Slowly I will be getting back in the rhythm of things, it's been a pretty busy start of the year, with many traveling adventures that although I am not complaining one bit, it starts to take a toll on you, it slows you down on the everyday life. Luckily though, the weather in Frankfurt has been so nice that I really shouldn't feel all dull, it has been sunny, affording you to go out of the house with just a cozy poncho and light knits, which is about my favorite type of dressing. 

On another note, my birthday is just a few weeks away and I just found out I am not turning 33, but 32 (LOL), yes I thought I was turning 33, after 30 I swear I can't keep track of my age, it's the weirdest thing ever. Do any of you 30 and fabulous ladies go through the same thing? please tell me I am not alone?
