Sunrise in Venice

Venice Before People

If you’ve ever been to Venice during the spring and summer months, you probably know how crazy busy it gets. All the narrow streets get so busy that people traffic almost needs to be controlled, people catch each others shoulders while passing next to each other and everyone wants to take a photo of the same thing. My idea was to avoid all of this.

I really wanted to see Venice to soak it all up without that persistent person selling selfie sticks or those annoying flying and glowing things that I always fear will land on my head (you know what I mean right?) I mean, if you ask me, these street vendors should be removed from such busy squares, as I can not focus on the beauty of this incredible square hiding so many secrets and stories while being offered yet another useless device. Oh well.

I set up my alarm at 5am which you could see in my vlog  and was lucky enough to see the San Marco square pretty empty. Sunrise and this historical place all together made it perfect. You know without people dressed in modern clothes waving with their iPhones you can imagine what it was like hundreds of years ago. You can transport yourself into the past and really enjoy the moment. Sure waking up is difficult, but I highly recommend waking up early to have these beautiful places all to yourself. Its probably the best thing I have ever done.

Another thing with waking up early is that you get such a long day and can see so much of the place you are visiting. That is what we did, but before anything else had to stop by some famous places, to see the San Marco Basilica, Bell Tower, Dodge’s Palace, Clock Tower, Lion of Venice and the Bridge of Sighs. After seeing this beauty at 6am I knew that Napoleon really did call this square “The Drawing Room of Europe”.

The Outfit

I think that romantic clothing really fits the whole vibe of the city. I mean you can wear anything you like, but for some reason boater hats and stripes felt so appropriate. I didn’t want to overdo it, as I was risking being mixed up with gondolier. I found this midi dress that was so easy to style, and really loved it because it is good for both day and night. In the evening you could style it with heels, and for more fashion like events I would layer it with a white crisp shirt underneath. I think you can even wear this dress with neat white sneakers, as its so super versatile.

I opted for my Valentino flats, as the bag I wanted to wear was this Chanel Boy. I love this bag sooo freaking much. Its the most perfect nude I could dream of and it just fits the right amount of stuff without being too heavy. Even though its made of smooth leather I am pleasantly surprised that it doesnt have any scratches even after my heavy use :)

This boater hat is my favourite and I love how it goes with my fave Dolce&Gabbana sunglasses. They are so feminine and I love the cat eye shape of them. What do you think? I am also thinking of buying one of those D&G round sunglasses with crystals all around. How do you like those?

    These shots are beautiful – and your outfit is so perfect for the location! I think it’s definitely worth getting up early to see a place without being completely swarmed, it’s always so peaceful when you do that too. Sophie x

    What a pretty dress. I love how you’ve accessorized it with the blush accents. I have the same colour Valentino flats & they are my faves! I hate those vendors selling tourist tatt too, they’re such an annoyance!!!!
