White Walls Call For White Shorts

Shirt: SIMILAR HERE HERE and HERE / Shorts: LOFT / Shoes: NORDSTROM / Bag: NORDSTROM 

 While in Puglia earlier this summer, we visited Ostuni “The White City”,  given its name because of its white washed homes and fortified walls.  Set back and on a hill, this city sits high and overlooks miles of olive groves that melt into the Adriatic coastline.  It’s a stunner! 


I thought wearing white would be appropriate for a night out in this gleaming city and chose to pair it with a black top that I picked up in a neighboring town.  I’m one of those people that needs to wear what I buy immediately.  Furthermore, it was one of those lucky “last one on the rack” finds that I may or may not have wrestled my sister for.


As we walked through the city, it was hard not to be mesmerized by all the “Greek inspired architecture” and colorful decorative ceramics.  One in particular that filled the stores in every shape and color caught my eye so much so, I had to bring one home with me.  I love to purchase items that have an interesting story to tell, especially on vacation, so more on that later this week. 

Ciao for now!
