Italy is known for it’s leather production. I love the way Italian leather feels, looks, and smells. Footwear or a bag will last and only get better over time as a patina develops and enriches the original colour.
I bought this small back pack in Gallipoli. This artisan shop had tons of handmade bags – it was hard to chose. I liked the way this bag opened up and then folded to close. It can be worn as a back pack or on one shoulder. I love this cognac colour and I know it will only get better over time,
I also bought this red leather bracelet on the beach near Gallipoli. Red is such a hot colour for fall so it’s nice to have an accessory that reminds me of my trip.
I’m wearing a cashmere sweater from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for this post. I love the length and off-the-shoulder style. For a hint of allure I’m showing off my Intimissimi bralette that I got in Udine. I love the antique rose colour against my skin. It acts like a cami without the added the layer. Intimissimi is a popular lingerie store in Italy and if you can find an outlet you can get great deals.
