Greetings from Lake Como, where I am staying at one of my favorite hotels in the world, Villa d’Este. It is simply a heaven in one of Italy’s most desirable locations: Cernobbio. This Renaissance era palace is a portal to another world, with a touch of Italian Old World charm it is a true luxurious experience. Walking through the beautiful gardens, I am wearing my favorite summer uniform, a floral Zimmermann gown and a Bottega Veneta bag. The linen fabrics are easy to pack and look great even a little bit wrinkled.
My look: Zinnia floral-print linen midi dress and Aurora oversized butterfly acetate sunglasses, both by Zimmermann, Almost Bare metallic leather sandals by Aquazzura, Jodie mini knotted leather tote by Bottega Veneta and Royal Oak 37mm 18-karat frosted rose gold watch by Audemars Piguet.
Looking at the terrible news from Beirut, I am so thankful that I am in such a beautiful and safe environment. Sending prayers to Lebanon. Everyone, stay safe! It is not the easiest time we are living in at the moment. So enjoy every day to the fullest!
