The Milan List

Milan has a very special place in my heart. I lived there for a few months in 2014 and I immediately fell in love with the city, culture, and people. I learned so much about what style means both in fashion and in food. Milan's thoughtful approach to every single aspect of design is inspiring - from the details in your napkin to the way an espresso will always be served with a chic biscotti. Pay attention to these details, and enjoy them :) This list could go on forever, but I tried to limit it to the top favorites.
