Exploring the Streets of Bellagio

Happy Thursday, friends!! Today’s post is brought to you from Bellagio, Italy, on Lake Como! Our hotel was on the other side of the lake, but we took a boat to Bellagio for the day, and it ended up being my favorite part of the trip. There were lots of charming little lake-front restaurants and cafes, shops and silk stores (Lake Como is a huge silk producer and you can get silks for really good prices!). We explored the streets of Bellagio for a little bit before nestling down at a small cafe – I ordered THE best cappuccino I have ever had in my life. Seriously! 
I really liked my outfit that I wore in Bellagio – I paired this tube top from Forever 21 with these polka dot shorts – even though they’re from two different stores, they happened to match perfectly! I also wore the shorts a second time on our trip with a white top (and it was just as cute), so the shorts are definitely versatile. Not to mention COMFY! By the way, if you like my Chanel tote, I think this Tory Burch one is super similar! I love the tan leather handles and the neutral canvas. 
Is everyone having a good week? I am still getting back into the swing of things after traveling last week! I actually signed up for a meal-delivery service called Sakara Life this week to try to reset my body after eating so many carbs in Italy (and when I say carbs, I mean we ate carbs for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!! Pasta pasta pasta pasta. It was delicious). I’m going to do a review of the service soon – all of the meals are organic, gluten-free and plant-based, and so far they’ve all been absolutely delicious. Okay, anyway! 
Say hi to my travel partners, my brother Chris…. (who is SINGLE, ladies! And can speak fluent Japanese lol!) 
And my mom CarCar! I thought these pictures were too cute not to share 🙂 

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

  6. Aw! This is such a cute look on you, Caitlin! I love that you spent time with your mom and brother considering he's been away in Japan for awhile. I think those last two photos are "framers" for sure! Glad you had a great time because Bellagio is definitely on my travel life list now. Heck, everywhere you've gone is on my travel life list, ha!
