Milan, The Hipster-Glam City

There’s just something about the original, vintage style decor of the modern, fashion capital city of Milan that screams photo op.  I love seeing the exquisite architecture of the Duomo, the gorgeous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, cobblestone streets, old school Fiats, brick buildings reflecting so much character, and ancient columns, archways and pillars that are still standing from over the centuries. Not to mention the ever so popular Navigli area complete with cafes, boutiques, second hand shops, restaurants, bars and canals featuring boats, walkways and benches along the water. Milan is just so #hipster #glam Advertisements

Brera by Night

Brera is one of my absolute favorite neighborhoods in Milan, and even more so around the holidays. We love venturing through the cobblestone streets, admiring the Christmas lights that are strung from balcony to balcony creating and popping into a cute cafe for a bite to eat or warm cappuccino. The ambiance is especially beautiful in the evenings.

The Colorful Side of Milan

When I first moved to Milan I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the city. I had always thought of Milan as a fashion capital where the majority of people you see walking down the streets are gorgeous Italian models, wearing mostly black attire and heading to some type of posh event. Either that, or a very “corporate” city, as it’s also basically the business hub of Italy.
