SATURDAY AT THE VENICE CANALS

( Leather Jacket –  REFORMATION, Dress – URBAN OUTFITTERS, Shoes – BIRKENSTOCKS, Purse – REBECCA MINKOFF )

This past weekend I hung out in Venice and visited the Venice Canals. I sipped on a latte, browsed at street art and went wedding ring shopping on Abbot Kinney. I stopped by Todd Reed jewelry, and wow was that an experience. I was so happy inside I thought my heart would jump out of my chest. These are definitely some of the best times of my life. No luck on a ring yet, but I will probably make a few more rounds before I make up my mind.
