Addio, NYC! Ciao, Italy and Greece!

Today is the day I head on the DREAM vacation I’ve been planning for months and months, Italy and Greece here I come!  My three girlfriends and I leave for Rome, Italy this evening and I could not be happier!!!

It feels so surreal that today is finally here.  We have a itinerary full of adventure, wine, food and of course shopping!  After a few days in Rome, we venture to Florence to vineyard hop then head south to Positano, for 5 full days of R&R!  At each of these Italian cities, we’ll be staying in Air Bnb’s.  We got such great deals, and I am so excited to see what each Loft / Apartment / House has to offer in each place!  See the photos below for where we’ll be staying in each city!

After a wonderful week in Italy we’re heading east to Santorini, Greece.  I cannot wait to embrace Wayne after a week apart and see everyone for my beautiful friend’s wedding.  I am so blessed to have been friends with my Cassie for the last 15 years and so excited to be a part of her and Alexis’s special day.

Our first night in this paradise will be in another Air Bnb.  We will then be in the beautiful, Oia Sunset Hotel with all of our friends to celebrate the bride and groom.  The wedding week in Santorini will be filled with ATV tours, boat cruises,  more food and drinks, and lots, and lots of laughter!

I cannot wait to share my adventure with each of you and stay tuned for pictures of my outfits and experiences in each of these beautiful European cities!

Harbor Date Night

Last night, Wayne and I took a spontaneous road trip for our date night to Harbor Point, Stamford, CT.  When I say this place was magical, it was just picture perfect, so quaint and truly how you would envision Connecticut; clear blue skies, followed by a beautiful sunset, wonderful drinks and seafood, and boats galore!

I chose a long sleeved crochet dress from H&M (old, similar: 1. here 2. here 3. here 4. here) which was perfect since we sat at a waterfront table by the live band at The Crab Shell.   I paired this summery staple with my favorite Catherine Malandrino wedges, Prada sunnies and Brown leather tasseled handbag.

I would highly recommend checking this restaurant out, right on the water, live band, happy hour, delicious selection of fresh seafood and pasta dishes!  Planning to do a few more trips to this adorable town which is a short drive from Manhattan while the weather is still nice, it’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city!
