Friday´s Fancies #35: Let´s Fly Away -- Escale à Portofino

Image via

When I look out of the window, I see snow. A lot of snow. And while I tend to find something to enjoy in every single season, I must say that the cold weather is slowly growing on me (plus it makes outfit planning that much more difficult!). Right now, I just wish I could jump on a plane and fly somewhere where I could just lay on the beach, read a book cover to cover, drink some decadent colorful cocktail and just enjoy being with myself (and without my computer).
Portofino may not be the perfect destination right now (the whole Europe is having basicly the same, snowy weather), but it´s still one the most glamorous destinations I can think of. To me it´s all about that fabulous Rachel Zoe-esque glamour: colorful kaftans, floppy hats, oversized sunnies and a touch of Dior´s Escale a Portofino perfume. Perfection.



What is your dream destination right now? And what would you bring in your suitcase?



12. Dior Escale a Portofino$90.00

  6. I love so many things on your list and you even picked the perfume named after the place. :)
    If I could be anywhere right now, I'd want to find myself in Paris... then Bruges and then Florence.

  34. Thank you for visiting my blog and the follow, I'll be following you too! <3

    I'm not really what you'd call a beach lover, but lately it's been growing on me bit by bit, and not in a sunbathing kind of way, but more in a walking by the shore in the sunset, the smell of the sea and the touch of the sand, and I think the perfect ensemble would be that Marchesa gown, it's gorgeous!

    Girls that glitter love the dark

  36. Of course anywhere with warmth in the air would be fine by me. =) My dream is to be able to afford to travel abroad (outside the US) so hopefully one day soon, that will happen. Until then...I'll live vicariously through others. =)
    I love your selections. Really makes me want to be somewhere tropical. =)
