MILAN #2

This was a day outfit for visiting galleries and museums around Milan and also for shopping! I ensured the outfit was conservative as knew we were visiting the infamous Duomo in Milan centre, practical as would be a long day and comfy yet stylish at the same time.  My knock-off timberlands are very comfortable and make the outfit more casual.  I also took and wore a peachy nude blazer, which I got last year from Primark, to keep me warm but also a bit smarter during the day.

MILAN #1

Last week, I was lucky enough to go to Milan, Italy for five days with my school as a trip with the textiles department.  I had the most amazing time there and thought I would share with you a few of my outfits whilst out there.  The Italian style had influenced and intrigued me, as I noticed that the main trend whilst being in Milan was smart garments/outfit paired with trainers.  This popular street style was worn by most members of the public and I thought made an outfit look classy but relaxed and comfortable at the same time.  After realising that I had bought way too many outfits with me for only a 5 day trip, I styled this outfit with what was available (photos were taken on our adorable balcony by my room-mate - she's the best!)...
