Chianti

After a few days in Florence, Tor and I rented another car (a little manual BMW) and drove about an hour south of Florence to the Tuscan wine region of Chianti. There are so many little towns within Chianti, but we settled on Radda in Chianti as our next destination.

Look 2: Rebecca Taylor dress, Eugenia Kim hat (sold out, similar here and here), Illesteva sunglasses, Marc Fisher sandals

We checked into our hotel Il Borgo di Vescine in between Radda in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti. It was a nice little retreat in the middle of Tuscan wine country after a few days in the hustle and bustle of Florence.

We immediately dropped our bags and donned our bathing suits since it was incredibly hot and sunny without a cloud in the sky, and we hit the villa pool. I had been waiting for the perfect weather to go swimming in this striped bowtie swimsuit from Kate Spade. The water was painfully cold, but that didn’t stop us from having a 3 second, refreshing dip!

Since it was so warm, I was so excited to finally wear this off the shoulder dress from Rebecca Taylor. I finished the look with a Eugenia Kim hat that appropriately read “Happily Ever After” – perfect for a honeymoon!
