That day 6 outfit is peeking out...too chilly!
And we're sailing!

Finally a home base for 10 days.  I loved our stateroom. We booked on Aqua Class on our celebrity cruise on board the Equinox. I'll get into all the perks of the AQ in a later post but for now, I'm jumping onto day 1 of the cruise and our first stop in Sicily/Taormina.  I'm keeping this short and sweet but I do have to note that we decided on the ship's sponsored excursion since it was one less thing to have to plan :)  The weather was pretty chilly and overcast but not overly cold. We got onto big tour buses with this woman who had the thickest accent ever guiding us through the sites. All I remember was her pushing these coupons that would get us a free bottled water up at some restaurant in Taormina. After multiple plugs for this free bottled water, P and I ditched the group and headed to explore on our own. the town is small and basically runs on one main street.  It was sunday and off-season so a lot of the shops were already closed but highlights of the town were the spectacular views (i can only imagine how breathtaking it would be on a clear sunny day), the amphitheater, and the cannolis. I never really liked cannolis but after trying them here, it was a whole different ball game. They were so good that we turned around after snacking on two and got more and snuck them back on the bus. Delizioso! 


This was probably the only time we woke up at 6am on this entire cruise. Luckily, this was the view from laying in bed with the curtains opened :)  The life....

More views and oh those cannolis

Day 6 Outfit recap! 
You can't see it because of my raincoat but I'm wearing a floral printed blouse, teal cardigan, my wide leg navy khakis, and gold ballet flats.
