Print Jackets:
Tribal Print Jacket

I was a little concerned as to how my new tribal print cropped jacket might fit into my wardrobe so it sat there a little sad until my trip to Milan last weekend when I felt suddenly inspired to give it it’s first outing. It’s funny how you can pack to dress in a way that’s inspired by the city you’re about to visit (like I did in Sweden) – am I the only one who does that?

I felt the sophisticated fashion capital might just be the place for this slightly more formal number, particularly when toned down with ripped black jeans and a Fedora. Now I’m looking forward to styling it up with city shorts or a white skater skirt for summer!

AirBnb Milano

As for where I was when we snapped these photos, this was Carrie and my Milanese home for the weekend! Have you heard of AirBnb? I hadn’t until last year when Carrie used the private room renting website to find a cool pad in New York. I was a little unsure about the idea of living in someones house with them instead of a hotel but I couldn’t rave about it more after this trip!

Our delightful hosts, two sisters live in this loft-feel apartment right in the center of Milan whilst we slept in a double room across the courtyard from them. We used their house when we needed to, and partied it up in their house on our first night! Getting a real life taste of living like a local, paying less than for a hotel plus getting all the insider tips is just unbeatable when exploring a new city – I’m looking forward to trying one out on another trip soon!

    Airbnb? That sounds fab! and looks like such a cool place you stayed! I’m loving the styling of the jacket, you are so creative and outgoing with your styling and I really think it suits the surroundings so well! Especially love the shot of you in window with the shutters! Hope you had a fabulous time away!

    I LOVE the idea of ‘borrowing’ someone’s house! I’m very much a ‘lived in’ kind of person – it sounds so lovely! Will defintely take a look when I book my next overseas adventure. Also, your mustard top is amazing!
