In addition to eating (a lot), drinking (a lot) and sightseeing on our Italian Getaway, we also did A LOT of
damage shopping. I’m really lucky to have a guy who loves it just as much, if not more, than I do. And just to make everyone even more jealous of our trip, I’m giving you a little peak of all the swag that was brought home from beautiful Italy.

Yes, we bought matching Hermes belts. Poser alert! But, in our defense, we have both wanted one for a long time, and they are more difficult to purchase than you would think. The color options are limited online, and stores carry small quantities. We visited the Hermes store in Rome, and neither or our choices were in stock. Hermes produces such limited quantities of each item that it’s hard to find exactly what you want, especially two. We decided to stop in the Florence store and by total coincidence they had two matching belts in our sizes and color choices (black and tan), and two Medium gold buckles! We couldn’t resist! Hermes is so particular about it’s brand pedigree we wern’t even allowed to buy them both at the same time, they required separate transactions on every item to prevent people from buying out pieces, and then selling them off market. Crazy, huh?
In addition to all of these gorgeous items, I also brought home an additional 5 lbs that I will not be showing off. If you need me, I’ll be on the treadmill for the 100th hour this month in attempt to burn off some pasta.
Buon fine settimana!
