Happy Wednesday everyone!
I am finally getting the 2nd series of 4 of our 2 weeks spent in Europe up on the blog. You can watch our Italy Video blog HERE. Next up will be our Paris video and then a Paris Outfit blog post! This post is going to be all about the outfits I wore in Italy, showing you some of my favorite photos from the trip and of course naming the $3K Giveaway Winner!
One of my most favorite pictures (way to go Grant!) was from our beach day the last full day we had in Sicily, Italy. This swimsuit is from Fashion Nova, but is sold out. I’m linking a similar option HERE, and a few other white shimmies I love here, here, and here. The sun hat is from Target and the scarf was a gift from my MIL that I just tied around the hat!
This view was right outside our villa! We laughed at Jules in this pic saying she finally found cell service haha!
Sunglasses are from Target, Bling Sandals are from Target, Romper obvi from Southern Jewlz and purse is by Vintage Boho Bags. My discount code for them is also “Randa10” which saves you hundreds considering their pieces are expensive!
This is Cynthia! She was our host who invited on on this very special trip. We are so grateful for her hospitality and for all the love of Italy she shared with us! My Top is from Threads Boutique in College Station, but it’s sold out. My sunglasses are coming next week to Southern Jewlz – and my denim skirt is also from SJ!
Here’s a full body of day 2’s outfit. I felt like a cute tourist. These hot pink bedazzled sneakers saved my feet so many times on this trip. The little bandana tie in feature tied the outfit together. The asymmetrical denim skirt again is from Southern Jewlz and is still in stock! It’s been my favorite skirt this whole Summer! Code “Randa10” will save you money at checkout with SJ!
Touring Italy with my Love!!! Highly suggest marrying an Italian man and then visiting his Mothership – speaking from experience!
We toured lots of beautiful Cathedrals on day 2 and any woman wearing shorts, a dress or a skirt above the knees had to purchase and wear one of these fancy blue coats. So here I am styling lol!
Here’s the 3 of us girls! Cynthia, Jules and Me!
This road block made me think of my dear friend and makeup artist Versy Picone! Had to snap a pic for her!
Here’s the last photo from Day 2. We took in so many breathtaking views. Notice there are part of the country that have graffiti really bad though!
Day 3 consisted of another Southern Jewlz Outfit. This little animal print romper was so comfy yet cute for a long day of being a tourist! Sandals are from Target, and so is this hat! The exact hat isn’t available anymore, but here’s a similar one for under $15!
Our entire group touring Italy! Sam and Jules on the left, Cynthia in the middle, Grant and myself on the right!
Champagne break! I loved mixing mine with fresh squeezed orange juice when we needed a mid afternoon pick me up!
My handsome husband!
Beach side view while touring the city, eating Italian snacks, drinking some daily cocktails and shopping!
Hot Pink Motorcycle! My pose is funny because this thing literally almost fell over while we were taking the pic haha!
Here’s my leopard bikini! I should have purchased a small instead of the medium. I had to tie it up in the back, but I would rather a swimsuit be a little bit than cutting off my circulation! We went to the beach just at sunset on this day!
I did get the small in this one piece pink striped swimmie for our snorkel adventure. The number 1 most requested question I received from Italy is where these water shoes were from. They were from a local vendor at a market on the square in Scopello. I liked them because they were clear and reminded me of jelly shoes. I left them at the villa fro the next group to use, so I don’t know the brand. Here’s a similar pair I found!
Here’s day 4 outfit! The top is from Threads Boutique, but is sold out. These jean shorts have been my favorite for 2 years now, although they’re getting a little too tight and short due to my PowHer.fit booty gains!. I highly recommend purchasing this pair of denim shorts. The earrings are from St. Raine Jewels and the Hot Pink Jeweled Tennis are linked here AGAIN!
700 BC! Twenty-seven HUNDRED years old!
On Top of the World!
For the day that we visited Corleone, Italy! The town is behind us and this is where Grant’s great-great grandfather lived before he came to America. My lace maxi dress is from Southern Jewlz and was perfect for the occasion!
For our last night’s dinner, we were hosted by our travel guide Sergio. My bodysuit is from Southern Jewlz and comes also in black and blush! The Jeans are from Fashion Nova. White Pumps are by Jessica Simpson. Rhinestone belt is from Los Angeles. Let me know below if you want to see Southern Jewlz carry this item!
Last night in Italy together! The courtyard at Sergio’s home was beautiful with blooms!
Here are a couple random photos from snacks, drinks, views and another dinner we got to have inside a friend’s home in Corleone, Italy! Truly a trip I will never forget!
