made in murano

making friends with a murano local - otto, the english bulldog puppy

the colours of this dress were the perfect complement to murano's rosy tones, i love the sleeve split detail and muted gold 3 button cuffs.

red floral dress by Alive Girl, tiga sunglasses by Ksubi, studded flip flops from General Pants

"no canvas absorbs colour like memory" - robert aris willmott
i love this quote and it rings so true as i remember each and every place that i have travelled to by the colours that surrounded me there.  on santorini it was the contrast of stark white and cerulean blue on houses, churches and every door and window.  on the amalfi coast i fell in love with turquoise blue ocean, canary yellow lemons and fiery red chillis hanging outside every store.  in murano, one of the islands off venice, it was the rich ochres of wine red, terracotta, dusky pink and forest green that caught my eye and that you can see in the photos above.  we were lucky enough to attend a glass blowing workshop where a master craftsman turned the famous murano glass into works of art in a matter of only minutes.  venice and its surrounding islands are one of the most unique and fascinating places that i have ever visited...add it to your list!
