A couple of days ago I went to the city with a friend. We visited the shoe store Sacha, where I saw these gorgeous black boots. I loved the fact that they were black, obviously, but the fact that they were heeled as well. Honestly, I do own too many shoes but these fitted right into my collection. So when we got home later that day, I ordered them right away. The walk very comfortable, because the heels aren't too high. Gonna shoot some outfit pictures soon! What do you think of these?

During my trip to Italy, I also did some shopping. One of the cities we went to was Padova, and it had a lot of stores. We, Nina and I, visited Subdued, Stradivarius, Mango and some other stores. As a big a-line skirt lover, I had to take this Mango suede skirt with me when Nina showed it to me. It was on sale for only 20 euros. I hadn't brought many items with me on holiday which could be combined with the skirt, but I think this white shirt goes okay with it. I have many other ideas on how to style this skirt so another outfit will definitely follow soon. What do you think of the skirt? And how would you combine it?

These are the last few pictures from my holiday. The last city we visited was Verona. It was beautiful there, just like in almost every other Italian city. On the picture above you can see what the view was like when you were in the Arena. We went inside and walked around for a bit. The view was what I liked most about being in the Arena. The inside was a bit disappointing, but that was because the inside was filled with chairs, so you couldn't really see what it used to look like.
We, of course, also went to Casa di Giulietta, from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. It wasn't very special but it was fun the see the balcony and the statue of Juliet. People where awkwardly touching her breast, which they say brings luck in love. We only stayed there for a few minutes.
We walked around some more, got ourselves an ice-cream and ended up at a square with a Dante statue. There were quite a few squares in Verona. It was lovely to walk through the streets and see al the beautiful architecture and statues. I was way too warm to keep walking so after a while we decided to look for a nice place to eat and drink something.
I was wearing the comfiest dress of all times, my birkenstocks and brought a tote bag with me. Makes it harder for pickpockets to steal from me ;) It was a beautiful day in a beautiful city, which also has a lot of amazing stores. So if you want to shop in Italy, Verona is a great city for that.
This was my last post about Italy. I will upload another outfit, shot while we were in Italy and my upcoming instagram update post will also be filled with pictures which I took during my trip. After that, I'm back with normal post agains. Outfits, which to wear posts, wish lists etc. What do you think of these pictures? And have you ever been to Verona?

A few weeks before I went on holiday I placed an order at H&M. One of the things I'd ordered is this lace detailed dress. At first I wasn't sure wether I would keep it or not, but in the end I did. One of the reasons was that this dress would probably be a perfect one to wear on holiday. It actually ended up being too warm to wear it, but I did wear it on our final day there, which was yesterday. With the dress I'm wearing my newest shoes, they're from Sacha. And also a little necklace which is from Mango. What do you think of this look?

Venice, one of the cities I've always wanted to visit. Yesterday we went there, and it was incredible. It's just so different from cities I'm used to. There's water all around you, no cars and of course beautiful architecture. I thought it would be very crowded, but if you walk into random streets, it isn't. Piazza San Marco was very crowded but we expected it to be like that. It was wonderful there.
As I said, the architecture was amazing. Everywhere you looked were beautiful buildings with lovely balconies and windows. Spotted many houses I would love to live in. The city is very colorful as well. Some buildings were very classical, like the one on the picture above. Others we're painted in lovely pastel or yellowish colors.
At first I wanted to wear my new suede mango skirt, but ended up going for these shorts from asos and a basic white h&m shirt. I'm glad I did because it was very warm and also, this was way comfier. We did a lot of walking, crossed a lot of bridges and also ate some delicious ice cream. Picture will be on instagram (@radiatefashionblog) soon. Along with more Venice pictures, because I made a lot.
What I love about this building is the windows. They were in all kind of colors, just like when you see oil on the streets. Not sure how to explain it otherwise. It was beautiful. Just like most things around you. It was hard sometimes not to take a picture of something.
In this photo you actually see everything, okay almost everything, I liked about Venice. The balconies, the colors, the plants around the balconies and windows, and how lovely it was in the not so crowded streets. If I could/want to live here? I'm not so sure. It's a beautiful city, but not so practical I guess, because of all the water and the bridges. But maybe the residents think about it differently and maybe you'll get used to it easily.
Today we're going to Verona, probably the last city we're going to visit since we're leaving friday morning. So Thursday is going to be a day full of rest, and of packing. I'm going to bring my camera with me today so there will be another travel post on the blog soon, and I also hope to shoot some outfit pictures there. What do you think of these pictures? And have you been to Venice?

This tropical printed playsuit from Asos has been hanging in my closet for quite a while now but I never really felt like wearing it before, only twice I think. When I was packing my bag for Italy, I decided to bring it with me. Gladly I did because I ended up wearing it and love the outfit pictures. The colors of the playsuit go really well with the colored house in the background. Again, I'm wearing my Birkenstocks. I brought other sandals too, but they have straps and the straps touch a mosquito bite which hurts while walking. So I'm 'stuck' with this pair of shoes. Not that I mind, they're my favorites actually. What do you think of this outfit?

This week in Italy has been incredible so far. On Thursday we drove to Portovenere and took a boot to Cinque Terre from there. It was so beautiful seeing the five towns from the sea. We visited Monterosso and Manarola. They were both very colorful and very crowded as well. This day, I actually didn't take much pictures with my camera, so below you can see a few which I took with my phone. For more pics, keep an eye on my instagram.
The first town we went to was Monterosso. We had a delicious lunch there, as you can see on the first picture. We stayed there until 3 o'clock. You could hop on and off of the boat, which was nice. That way you could visit multiple towns. At Monarola we had a very much needed ice cream. It was so warm, eating some ice cream was a great refreshment. After all it was a lovely day. I'd wanted to visit Cinque Terre for a long while now so it was amazing to be able to do so.
Today we're going to another part of Italy. Last week we stayed at La Spezia, in the North West of Italy. Now we're going to the North East part of Italy, near Verona, Venice and Padova. Can't wait to explore those cities, never been there before. What do you think of these pictures? And have you ever been to Italy?
