...Because this princess needs a photographer to follow her around. (Comment "Ringer" if you got the reference. XD)

I don't know if you've noticed, but I've really been favoring a feminine/vintage-esque look lately. Cue all the skirts. Is there something deliciously Etruscan in the air, or is it just me? 

Scratch that, there definitely is something in the air - there always is, around the turning from Summer to Autumn, when the sky is bluer and the breeze smells older and cooler. 

Of course, reading A Room With A View only adds to the Italian vibes buzzing round in my head. It's no wonder I'm wanting to channel Audrey Hepburn via Roman Holiday, 24/7! I'm especially craving a midi length pleated skirt like this one.

If this is a phase, I'm not too interested in seeing the end of it. I'll just keep wearing wide skirts and chic shades till the end of my days, thanks. 

Moral of the story: dress like Audrey every chance you get + also a little gelato would not be out of place.
