So summer seems to making a vvvvvery late appearance here in the UK (mega-bummer). But I thought it would be nice to share a recent little trip we took to Italy (because photos of ice cream never disappoint, right)?
I’m not going to lie guys, we really needed a break. A few days somewhere warm, with good food. And ice cream.
So there was lots of happy dancing when we decided to take a few days and disappear. We managed to get ourselves over to Trieste in Italy. Lots of ice cream there. Hooray!
Have you ever been? I’d been once before when I was little, but it was so much better than I expected.
And… I managed to wear something me-made everyday. A bit of early practice for this month’s Me-Made-May challenge (can you spy the hudson pants in the photo below? More on those later!)
Trieste was great for us – especially now that we have a bambino there’s a bit of a cap on where we can go (sadly, trekking the Andes or tropical beach-side cocktails are out for now).
It was easy to walk around. There’s the sea, beautiful buildings.
We visited a lovely palace on the sea with great garden for exploring (seen in all those tropical-esque photos of the Hudsons!
And the sunsets on the sea were unreal.
As for my me-made trial, my fleet of plantains made it out (wearing it hear with a vintage skirt I raided from my mamma’s closet).
And my trusty woven True Bias Hudson pants were insanely perfect for travelling.
This little trip was great – definitely helped us relax. Now we’re planning our next little trip – to Lisbon in a few weeks time!
What clothes are you planning for summer and summer holidays? And have you ever taken your handmade wardrobe on holiday? If so, how did it go?
