It's already a month ago, but I just didn't had the time to prepare this blogpost earlier.
I just want to share some beautiful buildings, shopping experiences and nice bars/restaurants with you.
First of all, it's so great to go to all of those amazing fashion weeks, in London, Paris and this year in Milan.. All thanks to Stedentrips.nl! So glad that they gave me to opportunity to visit those lovely cities!

Let's talk about what you see on the pictures:
1. Well, I think this is quite obvious; everything for a good streetstyle picture, right? ;)
2. Wonderful window from the huge warehouse La Rinascente
3. La Rinascente again, if you love designer items, you definitely should go there!
4. Wonderful buildings in the centre of Milan!
5. Lunch at the Jazz Café, really nice to go there and they serve delicious food!
6. Shooting streetstyle!
7. And some more
8. Shopping!
9. And time for a little break. We went twice to this cute little bar called Nobile, they've perfect latte macchiato's!
10. The cupcakes from California Bakery which I already showed you, but still love them ;)
11. During the three days Milan, we stayed in Hotel Lloyd. The perfect hotel when you want to stay next to the centre. You've to walk maybe 10 minutes before you're at the Duomo.
12. And another perfect window of La Rinascente. I seriously love that warehouse!
13. The Duomo!
14. Snap from the Window of Louis Vuitton, actually I'm not really into Louis Vuitton, but isn't this typewriter cool?!
15. And another streetstyle snap, love these flared jeans!

CALIFORNIA BAKERY

Fashionable food

During MFW Rosanna and I really needed some latte macchiato sometimes, because the weather was too bad.. It was super cold and snowing whole day(s) long. The second day in Milan we came across this amazingly cute bakery.
It's called California Bakery (Hello, we're in Milan?! But hey, who cares?) and you can find it at several places in Milan.
We went to the one at Via Larga 19 (near by the shopping centre)The other ones you can find at the following addresses: Piazza Sant'Eustorgio 4 & Viale Premuda 44. If you're in Milan you should really go there!
The interior is super cute with a lot of wooden seats and small tables, like you're sitting somewhere in a garden. The menu is more than perfect with a lot of cakes, like apple pie, cupcakes, chocolate pie in 100 different ways etc and too much choice for drinks: coffee, latte, a lot of different teas and so on! But if you don't like sweet cakes.. You can also brunch & lunch there!
For me it's definitely the perfect bakery for a shopping break!
 

MFW OUTFIT #3

Outfits

Posted on

Romwe coat, Topshop jeans, Nike sneakers, CTF beanie (on sale now!), Zara umbrella, H&M ring

Sorry guys, couldn't choose between the pictures..
Billierose and I were thinking that the snowy pictures would totally fail, but actually I really like the result ;)

This is what I was wearing during the last  day in Milan.
It was só cold and it was snowing all day long, so I put on my nikes (the thick soles are perfect against cold feet) and had to tie my coat with a small waistbelt..
Beanie on and umbrella above my head, and chop chop, there we go! ;)

Last but not least I will thank Stedentrips.nl again for this amazing oportunity to see the wonderful city Milan, never been there before. You should definitely go there once!
