Shop til you drop of heat

Before my experience of Milan, I can honestly say I didn't really know much about the place. I knew it was popular for its film festival, fashion and nightlife, but I had no idea what to expect.

The morning after I arrived in Milan, I made my way towards the "shopping district" and found that no one was really out. It was Saturday and I was a little shocked a the lack of people, I haven't even considered that maybe it was because it was 8:30 or so on a "Saturday". Come 10:30 and the streets were full of bustling shoppers, musicians, tourists with big cameras and so forth.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Milan, except for the heat. It hit around the 38 degree mark as we arrived on the Friday night, just as Italy had a het wave blossom. Of course that was to happen when I was in the country, how dare Italy do that to this winter-loving sweethart!

In Milan I didn't do much but shop and get utterly lost. Thank goodness the shop assistants everywhere spoke English and were lovely people, otherwise I may have never found my way back to the hotel. Milan is where I fell in love with Italian shoes and of course I bought some (which will be showcased on the blog in the future I am sure).

In these photos I am wearing a dress that I had purchased in Paris from Banana Republic, paired from a pair of flats from Zara in Paris and sunglasses from Asos.
