Venice easily draws you in with it’s colorful buildings and charming waterways. I still have dreams of walking around it’s romantic canals. In typical Venice fashion, I wore stripes. You may think, “that’s pretty basic of you, Miss Beyond Basic.”

Beyond Basic Blog Venice ItalyBeyond Basic Blog Venice ItalyBeyond Basic Blog Venice ItalyWell, sure…but I didn’t find anything else fitting and I already had this number in my closet. In fact, I wore it last year and I am a firm believer of repurposing an outfit for another occasion!

Beyond Basic Blog Venice ItalyBeyond Basic Blog Venice ItalySince I wanted to capture some moments in Venice without the crowds, I got up early to take in all the beautiful sights of Venice. It was a bit cold, so I paired this striped dress with this red cardigan. I also got these cute lace-up flats and I was ready to take on the day.

For example, the Rialto bridge was closed for renovation and the last time we came the Peggy Guggenheim Museum was closed but it was open this time around. If you’re a fan of modern art, the Guggenheim Collection in Venice is a must see. You’ll find amazing pieces by artists like Jackson Pollack, Michele Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali to name a few.

Beyond Basic Blog Venice ItalyBeyond Basic Blog Venice ItalyA friend recommended ordering a Spritz while I was in Venice since it’s a commonly served drink in the region. While I did take his suggestion, I was definitely not a fan. Maybe I went to a bad spot, but it was just not my drink of choice. I am not a fan of many bitters in my drink to be quite honest. Had I known, I wouldn’t have ordered it. So here I am ordering the house red. Red wine rarely does me wrong.

Beautiful photos! I love Venice and it was such a good idea to get up early to avoid the crowds (although I can’t even begin to imagine what time you would need to get up to do that!)
I fell in love with your dress when I saw it on Instagram and I love it even more now! You look so beautiful 🙂
