the real assisi

it would seem that i actually didn’t do a post on assisi. how ignorant of me. anyways. here are some photos for you. they should make you feel rather glad about living. it was sunny and just beautiful there. probably a little too hot for this white girl, but amazing. it’s a town on a hill. and food was a joke. by that i mean so good it was almost comical. so here’s a view of one of italy’s finest hillside town…

i did a post on some wonderful things we saw in assisi a little while ago. but just thought i’d elaborate on that little outfit. apart from that i was looking through my photos last night and felt a desperation to get back to that gorgeous sunny place. love that photo of the church. it pretty much sums up the mood of the place. so on to the clothing. i wore these shoes almost every day due to walking and generally just liking the shoes. this little plaid skirt i got from a vintage market, and you guessed it, it was long but i took it up. it kind of has this grandma meets school girl thing about it. come to think of it. hopefully i didn’t pull of that look too well. but i think it’s kinda fun. the top is bracewell (this singlet has literally been in the family for years) belt also vintage and the shoes are new kid. ah and for some reason being in italy made me feel okay about my hair being all natural and wavy/frizzy. although i must say. my hair in europe was less frizzy than australia. just another reason i should move there. better hair.

ciao friends.

so I said i would post as much as possible before I went away, but it would seem I have more time on holiday to post than ever. So here I am. Sitting in my hotel room in Rome for the first night of our family holiday and already sharing photos over the internet. Got to love this thing. So we left Perth, flew 5ish hours to Singapore, watched Beyonce in the waiting room for 3 hours and then headed 13ish hours to Rome. It’s incredible. At first I felt a little like I was in Thailand with the smell of the gas from the scooters, and the chaos, but then you spot a well dressed young gentleman with his linen pants and cuffed suit jacket sporting a pair of aviators and stepping in to his Audi, and you know you’re in Rome. So I feel like I should put a few photos up most days while I’m here, as I’ve been clicking non stop and need someone to appreciate all the photo opportunities in this ridiculously historic city. So here is la famiglia and all the things I expected Italy to put on display for me (such as small cars and washing out the window)

tomorrow calls for a guided tour around Rome’s main attractions. woo. shall report on that once I have recovered from sleep deprivation. buone notte.
