09 Aug Lemon Prints Are Particularly Popular in Italy
What can I say? I have Italia “On the Brain”… Why is the lemon print, o Limone so popular in Italy?
Lemons and Italy
Did you know that lemons first arrived in Asia only then to be only then to be cultivated in the Almalfi coast?
I could wear this top there, and fit right in, as the “Land of the Limone” is the Almalfi Coast. You will find much of this fruit in dishes, drinks and more.
If you haven’t ‘tried Limoncello, it is a must! I’m looking forward to trying it straight from the tree! My hubby is checking a bag so we can bring some back.
Amalfi lemons are different from the traditional lemon you would find here in the grocery store. They are larger, their peel thicker and have a very aromatic scent. Not only that, but they are also organic and picked directly off the tree to make those delectable dishes or drinks.
I have a few lemons printed pieces, perhaps that would be just too obvious that I am a tourist?!
Another lemon favorite of mine is Lemon Curd. I found this wonderful recipe on The Slow Roasted Italian Website. So, if you love it, give it a go and make it. It’s so good on some pound cake!
My Inspired Outfit
I have had this lemon print top or ( Camicie di Limone) for a few years and thought it apropos to style. It can be worn on or off the shoulder. My favorite pair of Wit and Wisdom wide leg crops and Zara strappy sandals, complete the outfit.
So far we have the VRBO”S booked for Rome and Positano. We also have tickets for the Colosseum tour and the Vatican tour. Tickets for lunch with the Pope. (aha! checking to see if you’re still reading LOL)
High speed tickets to Florence and Positano are also on the agenda.
Are you a fan of lemon prints or have you, yourself worn them in Italy?
