As you might have already guessed by reading the title, this look was shot in Milan amidst Fashion Week. ‘La Dolce Vita’.. What does it mean to you? To me, it signifies a beautiful, sweet life – full of happiness, romance and pleasure that only Italy can bring to you. And surely, I felt exactly that way when I was in Milan..
Do you ever have the feeling that something magical is happening? To me, it comes when I travel. Traveling has always been such a big passion of mine, and together with my family we traveled to amazing cities and experienced such different and beautiful cultures. But this trip was my very first in Milan – and I felt such a strong connection to Italy that I haven’t felt in any other city in a long time!
Therefore, in collaboration with fashion label Lipsy London, we wanted to bring to you this romanticism and beauty all the way from Milan – the feeling of living la Dolce Vita!
Of course, this needed to be translated in the outfit I wore, so it couldn’t have been more perfect that one of the trends Lipsy London sported this season is that of floral and exotic prints. This beautiful dress reminds me instantly of Italian fashion: it’s feminine, seductive and empowering – and most importantly, it makes me dream of living La Dolce Vita. Walking along the Italian streets in the evening, or having a sweet cup of coffee (as Italians typically do!) on a gorgeous rooftop with the company of your closest friends – that is the good life!
Shot on a beautiful and romantic rooftop terrace of our own during our stay at the Westin Palace in Milan, it truly set the scene of the story we wanted to tell. I hope you enjoy these images and this look, and how does traveling make you feel? Which are the cities where you feel most alive?
