Mixed meats platter, which included roasted veal, chicken, beef, pork and rabbit, at the famous restaurant, Il Latini in Florence. So tender and full of glorious savory flavors. The rest of our meal was delicious.

We were lucky to be invited by the owner of Il Latini to view his private wine cellar. Look at these bottles of Brunello di Montalcino wine, the vintages were jaw-dropping.

This day in Tuscany and Florence were a special treat since the Brunello di Montalcino wines are so lauded. Now I can understand why after touring the wineries, countryside and learning of the many centuries-old history of this Tuscan region. Just spectacular for all of your senses.

I wore my new LOFT Lou & Grey lace pants during my trip. They are so comfortable, I really love the pretty lace material. It’s a feminine counterpoint to the military jacket and camo scarf. Pale pink rosette flowers on my tank top adds to the girly factor. I kept the color palette soft and neutral with my sandals.

Have you recently traveled to somewhere special, whether it’s near or far? I love to talk travel, I always get ideas or inspiration. Ciao, xx.
