This vacation-itis. I’ve got it bad; so bad that it’s spread to Italy. The Amalfi Coast would be a dream vacation; I’d love to visit here someday. This picture from Positano is stunning! There’s something about those orange umbrellas….
To prove that vacations don’t have to completely drift from your true loves, I’m sprinkling in some beach inspired works of art thanks to Saatchi On-line. For this post I decided to go a little abstract.
And for a real budget busting vacation, a Tuscan summer holiday at Hotel Il Pelicano wouldn’t be bad either. It’s the place of champagne wishes and caviar dreams (ugh, if you’re old enough to remember that phrase, I’m sorry for making you re-visit that), or more like sipping Campari and Soda while dining on THIS MEAL (I can’t translate, but they had me at Bastianich… doesn’t it look divine?). Il Pelicano is one of those hideaway places that’s not so hidden; you want to be “found” here (looking fabulous of course).
It goes without saying that a locale as lovely as Il Pelicano deserves an amazing ensemble, so my beach basics had to bring a whisper of gold along with the old standbys, the Ray Ban Wayfarers. Pass me the Limoncello, I’m settling into this daydream of an Italian beach vacation quite nicely!
