If you asked any girl what the top 5 places she wanted to travel to are, 9/10 are probably going to have Italy somewhere on that list! I visited Italy several summers ago, and let me just say, it does not disappoint! Italy has SO many things to love, but I think the things I miss most are the stunning views/old world architecture, amazing wine (and CHEAP! Water costs just as much as wine at restaurants there, so let’s be honest, it was always an easy choice! Lol!), and the shopping! But the last one should be no surprise. The shopping in Italy is nothing short of a fashionista’s wonderland! There are so many incredible luxury Italian boutiques, and get this – the prices are cheaper than in the states! If I had it my way, I would be a millionaire, and would be jetting off to Italy on a monthly shopping trip to have the luxury of shopping my favorite designers at a discount…#keepdreamingKatlyn. Until now.
Helllooooooooooo, Italist! If you haven’t heard of Italist, you are about to be mind blown! Italist is an online retailer that integrates over 200 Italian luxury boutiques into their platform…at prices up to 30% less than average online retailers and US store fronts, so you no longer have to take a flight to Italy to get Italy prices! They carry some of my favorite designers such as Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Gucci, and Saint Laurent. I found a gorgeous pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies on Italist for only $540 (normal US retail is $675)! You can get some serious $$$ off US retail! Italist express ships your order too, so you have it in your hands in only 4 days! Can’t beat it!
Now to this adorable outfit! I’ve been loving a crisp white sneaker lately! They can be styled in so many different ways, making them so versatile! I recently got these Golden Goose sneakers from Italist, and I am in L-O-V-E! They were only $289 on Italist vs. $550 on other retailers! They’re such good quality, and I’ve been having so much fun finding different ways to style them! Here are 3 of my favorite white sneaker looks you can try this fall!
1. Mix Casual with Girly: I immediately grabbed for this striped t-shirt dress and leopard scarf when I got my Golden Goose sneakers in the mail! I love the contrast of a sneaker paired with a more feminine outfit! It makes for a super comfortable, yet put together look!
2. White on White: It’s really no surprise this one made the list. After all, y’all know I’m a HUGE believer that the “no white after Labor Day” rule is a thing of the past. I sometimes love wearing white in the colder months even more than the springtime! There’s just something about the color white and the crisp air that complement each other perfectly! Throw on a pair of destroyed white denim, an oversized white sweater and olive scarf with your white sneakers for a super chic white on white look!
3. Chunky Cardi and Denim: There’s nothing that screams fall like a chunky knit cardigan! It feels like you are wrapped in a blanket all day, which is always a plus! Pair it with a pair of black or blue ripped denim and sneakers for the perfect cozy fall look!
