A few Italy snaps

Hello again everyone...

So I finally got around to downloading some of my holiday snaps and I thought I would share one of my favourite outfits with you, as well as showing you the beautiful Umbrian landscape.
I took these pictures in the last part of sunshine before a massive 4 day storm broke out. I had actually spent the best part of the day reading '50 shades of Grey' ( I know sadly I have fallen for the Mr Grey trap) in the sun and forgot to put on any sun cream, so I apologise for the slight reddish tint that my skin has, it turns out that I actually burnt myself quite badly and later on that day I ended up looking more like a lobster than a tanned goddess. Let's just say a lot of after sun was needed!

This dress was a fairly old purchase from urban outfitters and I have to say it has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have worn in with tights, on nights out and as you can see on holiday. I paired it with a brown studded belt and some plain gold sandals. A lot of the time I believe that keeping it simple is always best.

I purchased this ring from an Italian market in the nearby town of Cortona, one of the things I love about Italy are the markets as they have some of the best and cheapest jewellery I have ever found. This was no exception at 15 euros for pure Indian silver.

What would be your holiday staple outfit?
