Bellissimamma Style: The Floral Headwrap
The Floral Headwrap. Last Saturday I went took a bus from Siena to Castellina in Chianti for some “mom-me time”. I wanted to feel inspired and refreshed so I took the “day off” from taking care of my two toddler boys. When I got off the bus, I was excited to see a flower stand selling sunflowers! I bought the flowers, had them cut and wrapped, and went on with my day.
Italian summers can be extremely hot and dry, so my hair was not looking its best. It was all limp and sweaty and sad. So when I found this very lovely headwrap on display in one of the open market stalls, I was excited to try it on! I was very happy to see how much of a difference it made to my look. It is handmade with love by a stylish Italian lady who loves to make headwraps, scarves, jewelry, and pillows. I found her stall in front of a house with a window that looks like this:
My Style Inspiration:
Just like the statue of the woman gazing out the window, I paired my headwrap with a white off-shoulder top.
To complete my Under the Tuscan Sun look, I bought a pair of sunflower earrings from one of the jewelry stands in the mercato:
A Day Well Spent
Castellina in Chianti is a beautiful hill town that is only thirty minutes away from Siena, Italy! I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Ristorante Sotto le Volte, checked out the Etruscan exhibition at the Archaeological Museum of the Chianti Area, visited the chapel, had coffee gelato in the gelateria, and bought my husband a bottle of Chianti wine as my pasalubong (Filipino word for “travel gift”/ souvenir). I went home feeling refreshed and happy and excited to see my kids!
