I have just been over to visit a new potential visit in Milan. I know it sounds oh so glam, I am not complaining, I enjoy my job, it certainly has it's perks, but it is not as glamorous as it sounds. The early mornings, the late nights and having to be nice to people all the time. This was probably the last trip that Ian and I will do together (I will divulge on another post), but let's just say circumstances are changing. So it was nice spending our last trip in one of my favourite countries, Italy.
Italians are just amazing. They have such a zest for life. They have such big personalities and they are just larger than life. They are everything that us Brits aren't.
Our appointment was in central Milan, so we got there early, had lunch and took in the crazy city.
I can't say I like Milan. It is not as it is portrayed. It is dirty, busy and very industrial, but during my very brief visits I have always noticed that the shopping looks amazing! If you have money this is the place to be! The place is crammed with wealthy Asians socking up on the latest LV bags. Crocodile skin Italians lavishly dripping in gold and furs. Literally ANYTHING goes here and I love that.
My outfit was a little more modest.

What I wore

I kept it quite simple, but I think pretty smart. I wore a Mango cream jacket with leather elbow patches, over a grey patterned high waisted dress from Benetton. Benetton has seriously disappeared in the UK, why? I just adore it simple elegant classics at high street prices. I wore black, knee high leather boots that I bought a couple of years ago from Boden. I have literally worn these to death and seriously need to think about investing in a different pair, but boot buying (along with jeans) have to be one of my least favourite expenditures. I always struggle finding ones to flatter my dumpy legs and fat calves. So when I find a pair I like I tend to wear them to death. I accessorised with a pretty pastel pink scarf that was handed down to me by my mum and my Follie Follie bag that Ian bought me earlier this year.
