I'm baaaaack! Did you miss me? Did you notice I was gone? I was in Italy last week!

I promise I won't be obnoxious and talk about this trip forever, but I do have a recap/photos to share later this week, along with a couple outfits (like I would miss out on the opportunity to take some outfits photos in a picturesque cobblestone alley!) Also hoping to share a packing list, next week-ish, because I feel like I nearly nailed it! And I had a request for one (no seriously!!) 

This outfit is what I wore to dinner on our last night in Sardinia. Luise took us to her favorite little place for a five course tasting menu and a never-ending jug of wine. Sardinia is, as a whole, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, and the city of Alghero (where we stayed) is entirely charming! This little alley was just around the corner from our apartment! More on all of this, later.

This marks the one night on the island where I actually "got ready" - put on real clothes, wore make-up, and did my hair-ish (full disclosure: I was deep conditioning in this braid because the Mediterranean Sea/sun is no joke!!) I couldn't not pack this dress for a trip to Italy, and it certainly fit the bill for a tasting menu, as well. These streets sure are cute, but boy were they hard to walk on (even in clogs!)

And I won't turn this post into product placement but; I mentioned I got an iPhone 7+ before I left, and these pictures are straight off my phone (well, not straight, but you know.) I was chanting "depth-effect. depth-effect!" all week, haha. The phone is a bit clunky, but if you're looking for a bomb phone camera, I would completely recommend it. Can't wait to share the rest of my photos! Oh and since the iPhone 8 came out today >:( maybe you can get it for less than I did! 

Mediterranean Blues is of course in reference to this dress, but also a play on those inevitable post-vacay blues. But you know, as much as I'm missing the beach and the best pasta and those carefree vacation days, it hasn't been the worst thing to be back in Nashville! It's always kinda nice to come home after a trip, know what I mean? My sister and I agreed that we missed our own beds and showers, haha. It was actually so nice to be back in the office and see all my work friends (and have them all say "welcome back!" and mean it!) I guesssss if coming home from vacation doesn't suck, that means I have things pretty good :)
