I’ve always wanted to visit Morocco. I remember my gradfather used to go there because of work and he used to bring me giant lollipops. That was my first impression of Morocco: they give you candy. That’s enough to make a child fell in love with a country.
We first saw the images of this campaign on Pinterest and we loved them right away. This collection is quite basic but that’s why it’s so versatile and amazing! We have to say that Madewell has done a great job with the campaign. Erin Wasson looks incredible, the setting is perfect and the finish product is absolutely aspirational. We want to be cool, sexy tomboys!
Yesterday was one of those glorious first days of Spring when all you want to do is sit outside and look how beautiful the world is. And that’s exactly what we did. After an early morning Spinning class (ouch!) we prepared our beautiful picnic basket and headed to the river banks, where we spent a fantastic day. And ate the BEST SANDWICH ever.
When we travel we love doing this that we think locals would do. We know we are tourists, don’t get me wrong. We have no problem with that word. We’re not travellers, though we wish we were! We have a lovely life to escape from and go back to. We spend days daydreaming about leaving to new destinations, but then we really enjoy being at home. It’s just that we love mingling with the locals and pretending that we live in the places we visit. In the end, travelling is fantasizing, no? Here’s a list of those little things that we love doing while travelling to fool ourselves and pretend we actually are locals:
Ines de la Fressange is the kind of woman we want to become. Her style is natural yet sophisticated and she represents a lifestyle that we adore. More than a year ago we showed you the fantastic collaboration that she did for La Redoute (click) and now we’re obsessed with her work with Uniqlo. Those two dresses are my favourite pieces from the collection. Aren’t they perfect in their simplicity? But there is more…
Venice is my favourite place in the world. If I had to choose one place to stay forever, Venice will be the chosen one. Its architecture, its history, its food and its undeniable charm made me fall in love with this city when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve tried to visit Venice at least once a year. The Venice I love, my Venice, is placed in the Castello area. The Venice I love is full of empty tiny streets to enjoy long walks, lively squares to savour a Spritz and a nice conversation, boats that sell the best fruit and nights that are as enigmatic as silent. But there is another Venice: the opulent, decadent, exclusive and even obscene. That Venice surrounds the Gran Canal, that Venice is epitomize by those palazzi where lavish parties have taken place during years. I’ve always been so curious about it, I won’t lie. And this hotel seems the best place to discover it.
