Romantic Venice

Night: Sweater: J.Crew Skirt: L.K. Bennett ℅ Shoes: Ferragamo Earrings: Vintage Bag: Modcloth Bracelets: Kiel James Patrick

Day: Jacket: J.Crew Sweater: LL Bean Jeans: Current Elliott Shoes: Tory Burch Bag: Tory Burch 

Venice, the perfect place to begin our “Irresistible Italy” journey with Crystal Cruises. The city could not have been more beautiful. After a full day of travel, Kiel and I arrived in Italy and were immediately welcomed by the Crystal Cruise staff with chilled glasses of champagne and a delicious lunch. We settled in to our gorgeous stateroom, rested, then prepared for our first night in the city.

Our first excursion of the trip was a romantic gondola ride for two. It was lightly raining from the moment we stepped off the water taxi, but that did not stop us from enjoying every second. The ornate street lamps illuminated the beautiful buildings to create a picturesque city. We walked through San Marco Square with a small group from the cruise before reaching our gondola. It couldn’t have been more perfect to glide through this enchanting city by boat to the sounds of a baritone entertaining guests, who booked the private tour, with classic Italian music. 

For this romantic outing, I couldn’t resist wearing this beautiful skirt by L.K. Bennett. It is such an elegant piece from a classic brand. I’ve been waiting to wear it on an occasion such as this. I didn’t have to do too much walking on this particular night and was able to get away with wearing high heel shoes.

The following morning we had a couple of hours to explore the city on our own before taking off to our next port, Kotor City, Montenegro. Kiel and I really enjoyed the spectacular view from the top deck of the cruise as we left the city through the Grand Canal. The views of the Venice Duomo and the vibrant buildings will be something I will always remember. For more on my Venice experience visit my guest post on the Crystal Cruise blog here

Special thank you to Crystal Cruises for this amazing experience!
