One Night in Milan

Savvy Spice Italy Post

The past week has been a whirlwind road trip through Europe as my parents visited for their first time so I was in tourist guide mode skipping from city to city. Last Saturday we stayed in Milan at The Radisson where a ‘little’ band called One Direction also happened to be staying which would have been really cool if I was 15, but navigating through a sea of cute Italian groupies was definitely an experience.

The next morning after a croissant and Cappuccino, we popped into the Cruciani store for a peak at its newest collection of bracelets. The Italian brand is one of my favorites and I have discovered a few other European brands and styles perfect for traveling or making a statement this summer in the States or beyond. Here’s a few of my Italian inspired ‘Summer Lovin’ Favorites…’

Summer Lovin’ #1 – Cruciani Bracelets! I mentioned the bracelets last year after seeing them on men and women everywhere in Italy. Cruciani bracelets and handbags are sold online and the Italian brand has a new store in New York, plus another in Palm Beach, Florida.

Summer Lovin’ #2 – Bucket Bags! Traveling with my Banana Republic bucket handbag has been perfect this summer because I can keep it right in front of me safely to hold my camera, chapstick, wallet and other essentials.

Summer Lovin’ #3 – Italian Swimwear! The Italian Swim Wear line, Calzedonia, is so stylish and my husband and family just bought suits for men and women at their stores. As we were leaving town, I also spotted a brand called Twin-Set as well.

Summer Lovin #4 ~ Bright Accessories! The summer is the perfect chance to stack bracelets and Cruciani works for any age. They even make children’s sizes.

Summer Lovin’ #5 – Floral Embellishments! I noticed women carrying Chanel boxes earlier this Spring with a cute flower attached and then just bought this bikini with a removal flower. It can be done with any top, bikini, clutch or as a hair clip by heading to the craft store and finding a silk flower and hot glueing a tiny clip on it.

    Ahahahaha! You poor thing, I can’t begin to imagine how annoying navigating all those tweens must have been. Those Cruciani bracelets looks so cute, I’m not usually one for arm candy and colour anymore however I’d totally don one or two.

    Hope you’re well lovely,

  11. Love the bracelets! Looks like so much fun!!!
