Island Dining

J. Crew Popover Shirt | Club Monaco Sweater | Urban Outfitters Jeans | Aldo Sandals | Forever 21 Bag

Wore this Club Monaco sweater (pretty much every day of the trip, in fact) over a blue pinstripe J. Crew shirt and white jeans for a brisk dinner on the water at Albergo Ristorante Verbano one of the first nights in Italy. Given it was on a secluded island, the restaurant sends a boat to pick you up at your hotel for a serene ride before dropping you off at Isola Superiore. The amazingness (not a word) didn't stop there. The food was probably some of the best of the trip (bold statement) with the freshest seasonal vegetables, rich flavors and interesting combinations of locally sourced specialties. See pictures and captions below for a little taste...
