Lace lovelies!

I found this beautiful white lace fashion shoot in Italy via another local blog recently so some of you may have seen it but I couldn’t resist sharing it with you as it is set in one of my favourite places on earth! The Italian coastal villages of the Cinque Terre.

I spent a day exploring this stunning part of Italy in 2009 and can’t wait to return as I loved everything about it. The cobblestoned streets lined with quaint shops and overhung with washing lines, the village squares lined with benches of people enjoying various flavours of gelati, the beautiful hillsides overflowing with homes in various shades of peach and pink, the sparkling bright blue Mediterranean below the Via’Dell Amore (Lovers Walk). The only things I would change is that I was on my ace (great for a while as you are in charge of where you go and how long to spend there but not so much fun when you want to share a pizza!) I was also in my first trimester which meant that the ferry did nothing to aid my morning sickness! Bleugh. I hope to return to make even more happy memories to erase the not so good ones… and I advise you to do the same. It is a must-see for your travel bucket list!

In the mean time wet your appetite with these images. The fashion’s not too bad either! Love the white lace – perfect for an Italian summer or a South African one!
