One of my favorite things is coordinating my outfits with my surroundings, and that’s exactly how this blouse came to be. Inspired by the stunning Duomo di Milano, one of the most renowned Gothic cathedrals in the world and a must-visit destination in Milan.
I decided to pair it with a 60’s inspired mini skirt I made using furniture fabric (my favorite) which resulted in the perfect look for a scorching Summer day while exploring Italy’s fashion capital.
The Duomo serves as the city’s focal point, and everything in Milan seems to revolve around it. Despite the throngs of tourists, the atmosphere in Milan remains serene and peaceful.
