The best balcony view

The streets of Casole D'Elsa

Best deli around!

Casole D'Elsa Church 

The houses in Greve

Market Day in Greve

Not a bad lunch spot

The most amazing green swimming river

Maxing relaxing in the jacuzzi

Tuscany has the most beautiful evening light

Acting the mermaid at the river

Casole D'Elsa

The last morning-too perfect!

I'm back from my travels in the amazing Italia! And it was the most gorgeous week. Exploring all the cities around Tuscany, eating far too much pizza and pasta and soaking up the beautiful scenery. We stayed in a little hilltop town called Casole D'Elsa (cutest place ever!) and drove around the surrounding places each day. It was blissful!

Here are a few snaps of my general week-I went a bit crazy on the photo front! These piccys don't include any of Florence & Siena-those will follow later in the week plus a few outfits taken on gorgeous evenings with the most perfect light.

I hope you like them!

So I'm off to Italy, Tuscany to be precise for a few days which will be lovely. I'm going to be exploring the local cities (Florence, Sienna and Luca) and lazing by the pool (hopefully!).
Currently trying to pack which is proving very difficult as all I want to wear in 30 degree heat is a bikini!..which probably wouldn't go down that well in Firenze city centre. 

I don't reckon I'll be able to blog but follow me on Instagram (@izzyash) to stalk me on my travels.

Be prepared for hundreds of snaps when I get back!

Leather is always so right.

Yes I know its shocking but this is another outfit post! The day after the wedding was the most beautifully sunny day so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to rock my new pink skirt. And I love it!

Now off to pack for my trip to Tuscany on Friday-I can't wait!

Shirt: Topshop    Skirt: Zara    Sandals: Topshop    Clutch: You'reSoVain    Jewellery: Random places

Currently on the hunt for a second hand (or just cheap) bike. The one above is my perfect bike. Does anyone know of any good places to look around the London area??

Also looking for a black rucksack for uni-preferably leather/canvas, a bit bigger than the ones above as its got to fit all my stuff in! Anyone know of any good ones?! Or places to look??

Thanks guys!

This was my outfit from the weekend, from the day of the wedding to be more precise! Those heels were a killer by the end of the day but, thanks to the wonder that is PartyFeet, I was able to keep them on until promptly switching into trainers the minute the bride and groom left!

A gorgeous Whistles dress and a fabulous, feathered fascinator, topped off with subtle gold jewellery and red lips.

Jacket: H&M    Dress: Whistles (tied with a piece of red cord)    Shoes: Kurt Geiger    Bag: You're So Vain    
Fascinator: Hired for the day!

You're So Vain in church

The newly-weds

Left the wedding in a vintage Rolls Royce

Gorgeous interior of the marquee

Instead of a wedding cake, there was a tower of cupcakes!

Tea was served

The throwing of the bouquet

My cousin Clemmie and I

Each guest was given a cupcake in a box to take home

A shameless post-wedding selfie with my cousin Sophie

Guests left a message for the couple on an old typewriter

Sophie, me and my sister Flora the day after

The wedding the wedding. What to say! It was the most amazing day. The sun shone (for the majority of it) and the bride, my cousin Lucy, looked incredible. The traditional wedding breakfast idea was scrapped in favour of a tea party so mountains of cakes, sandwiches and other yummy things were brought out to the guests. We drank from old champagne glasses and left notes for the bride and groom on an old typewriter-so groovy!

First dance, more dancing, cutting of the cake and throwing of the bouquet done, the happy couple sped off to their honeymoon (destination unknown..!) in a vintage car.

After a short bit of karaoke, it was back to the hotel for some much needed rest.

Outfit pics from both the day of and the day after the wedding will be up soon! Promise.

Just a quick post before I rush out to work again. 

I love a good shirtdress. I got mine in a vintage shop in Brick Lane but steal a big shirt from your boyfriend/dad/brother to rock the laid back look. Just add heels and lippy for extra glam.
