We accidentally ended up dining in this super chic Thai restaurant

While roaming around in Malta we stepped into a restaurant that we believed to be Italian. Interestingly, it served cuisine that was a fusion of Thai and French! It was exactly what I was craving. Unfortunately, my refined Korean (Kim Chee loving) palette did not fare very well with the nonstop rich Italian food. I had gastrointestinal issues the entire time I was in Italy (T_T)! aaahhh haha

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful Malta is. It’s a southern European island country of its own with picturesque island views and rich architectural monuments. I opted to reflect my beautiful yet casual surroundings with pastel jewel tones. I’ve had this accordion pleated top for several years now (I think it was $10 from Papaya), my shorts are from this post. Sandals and purse also worn here.

Getting Lost in Venice

I discovered that Venice is laden with many alleys that lead to the side of a building, or a small body of water. It was very frustrating for a directionally challenged individual like myself to get around without a guide aka my husband lol. Fortunately, a cute little boutique (where everything was 10 €) was located right next to our apartment. Thus, I ventured into that shop all by myself, hehe. I found these exceptionally comfortable nude parachute pants there. My navy tube top and braided headband are from H&M. I’m wearing a gold spiked necklace I found online (from China ofc)! I wore the booties and purse in this post.

St. Mark’s Square at night, where I had the pleasure of listening to several talented string quartets!

Venice was exactly as I imagined! A picturesque and dreamy little city sitting atop the Venetian Lagoon with hundreds of beautiful little bridges and canals. The creative director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, once said “Venice never quite seems real, but rather an ornate film set suspended on the water,” I concur. We rented a little apartment located right next to St. Mark’s Square. Every little building I ran into was crafted with beautiful artistry. I’m in love with Venetian Gothic architecture and wanted to snap a picture everywhere I went!

I’m wearing my favorite pair of high waisted jeans, the American Apparel Easy Jean. I’m guilty of owning 3 pairs..hahaha. I wore this jacket in this post and this travel-practical purse in all my Travel Diaries posts thus far. My crop top is from H&M, and my tye dye scarf is from Forever 21. My nude leather booties are from Korea, in the Hongde shopping area.
