ITALIA!

Buon giorno everyone! I've been a huge slack since we got back from our trip, so once again, sorry for the late update. We had a fantastic time in Italy, and I came back an ENGAGED woman!! Yes, Rod proposed to me in Italy. At a castle. In Tuscany. I don't think it could get much more perfect than that, but check it out for yourselves!

Just after he asked me. :) I was totally surprised!

The ring - Asscher cut, my absolute favorite


Right after he proposed, this rainbow appeared - we could hardly believe it.

Even after I said "yes," Rod put up with a long grueling day of me shopping in Florence. Here are the results:

And finally, a couple of outfits since I got back, with my newly aquired Italian threads:

dress: Max Mara, shoes: Miu Miu (Rod surprised me AGAIN by getting me these as an engagement prez), bag: Hoakon Helga (on Etsy), earrings: Haute Hardware

close-up of the most fab shoes ever. I've barely taken them off since we got home.

Here's a variation of the same outfit, but with blue tights & my Bakers Dior knock-off gladiator heels. I like both combos.
with my Mango trench & Ray Ban shades

Ciao for now!
