Hey Summer Birds,
Meet this week’s Pretty Bird, fashion student and freelance stylist Diana Aquila. I met this beautiful creature while walking on Via Madonnina here in Milan. She was wearing a total Summer-white look (crush) and immediately caught my eye. And speaking of eyes, how gorgeous are her baby blues? More Crush, dark hair and blue eyes always gets me… So striking. But enough of my gushing, please join me in getting to know her better. She’s a gem!
