Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

Today is my last day here in Milan. I have been here for almost a month and it feels like just yesterday I landed in beautiful Italy. Of course I am spending the day in Lombardy, shopping before heading off to Florence tomorrow. I originally came to Italy to take a course in pattern drafting to perfect my skills and now that my course has finished I am packing my bags and going to travel around Europe :) I will keep you updated with photos and outfits if I can manage to find someone to take my photos :p

Today we went to Duomo so I wore something appropriate to enter the cathedral. Here they won't let you in the cathedrals if they are museums if you have exposed shoulders or mini skirts/shorts. Of course being catholic I was raised to dress nice for church but I felt bad for all the tourists that were not able to get in because of their wardrobe lol. I stuck to one color palette and my black velvet pumps. I love the ruffle detailing of this top I thrifted a while back, it has a very western vibe to it :)

Shades of Grey

Today it poured here in Milano. I had never experienced rain like this before today. As we were taking my
pictures for today's blog post a big splat of water hit my arm...I thought it was bird poop but as I looked I saw it was water. Again a big splat on my head... then it all came pouring on us, huge droplets of rain one could stand between the in a certain spot and not get wet it was so strange in California when it rains it sprinkles evenly, here it is sparse but heavy. We had to run to the metro and we got pretty drenched but I have to admit it was quite fun. Anyway for today's look I went with a monochromatic theme. Stuck to basic black and white but have fun mixing prints :)
