Ah, the beautiful Venezia...famed by its countless beautiful canals, blue-green waters, and winding paths that even Google Maps can't help you with. Venice is one of those places that's best experienced by getting simply lost, since you never know what hidden treasures and sights you will find along the way. I’ve always been the navigator during the majority of my trips, since it’s fun for me and a good way to get to know what is around me when exploring a new place. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t have all the time in the world to get “wanderlost”, since we wanted to take a few hours to explore the Island of Burano (continue on this post to read more about this cute island!) in the afternoon. I think a full day is plenty to get a feel of Venice, since the canals do get repetitive after walking around all day long. This city is very crowded with tourists (as expected and warned), but Venice is a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime!
Venice is one of the top places that comes to my mind under the category of "romantic destinations" (after Paris and the French Riviera), so I definitely wanted my outfit to fit the scenery. I love the flow of this pink chiffon maxi skirt, since it just makes me want to twirl all day long. I went for a monochromatic look by pairing the maxi skirt with a lighter pink floral crop top. Pink is my favorite color, and I really don't have much of it in my wardrobe, so this is a bit out of my comfort zone since I'm wearing pink head-to-toe. Everyone loves the classic black on black outfit, but why not try it with other colors this summer?
I admit that I only knew about Burano through many pictures on Instagram, and became obsessed with how a place could be so colorful and unreal. One of my friends on this trip had actually been here before with her family, and suggested that we had to go during our short time in Venice. (Special shoutout to Meghan for being MVP photographer). There isn’t all too much to do here but walk around, eat, and explore small lace and mask shops. Burano is famous for hand-crafted lace, so make sure you pick up a few souvenirs. From clothes and scarves, to just meters of fabric, lace lovers (like me), rejoice!
