Beneath the sky that covers the entire world, there are corners of the Earth that house a beautiful peacefulness. I have walked in and out of some of these corners in my life, always taking a new piece of myself away from it. I have found one of my favorites right here in Florence.

It's a balcony at my university with a gorgeous canopy of wisteria. Two weeks ago, the buds were just beginning to bloom and today, the rays of sunlight can barely peek through! I love this spot that I can go to whenever I want, to do whatever it is I need or want to do. It truly is a beautiful place and I am so grateful to have found it! I wanted to bring you all along so you can see it too!
Clearly I dressed for the location. We have had an awesome heat wave this past week in Florence so I wasn't afraid to wear light fabrics! I paired this pretty lavender top with printed pants that my friend Eliza lent me! I love that this outfit could function for so many occasions. Study date, barbeque or drinks with friends at night, you could do it all!
Of course, I had to have a bright lip to spice things up. Since the outfit was mostly muted colors, or on the softer side, I decided it would be fun to have a peachy orange lip for a nice statement in contrast. I love the purple and orange together and the neutral tones in the pants and shoes help balance everything!
Thank you for coming to my hideaway with me today! It's where I have gotten some great and creative new ideas! Do you have a spot that you consider an oasis? Where? Let me know in the comments!
