Francesca Bellavita, route 66

Texas, I love you!

Here I am during the part of my trip that I loved much more than the others: from Oklahoma to New Mexico passing through Amarillo, in Texas! I saw a lots of semi-abandoned motels (the most famous Blue Swallow Motel), old neon signs, gas stations (an example is Lucille’s Station), ghost towns, flea markets with a lots of souvenirs about Route 66, autos stubbed in the land (the famous Cadillac Ranch) and even the second biggest canyon after the Grand Canyon: Palo Duro! It’s been such an amazing road trip! Furthermore we had dinner at Big Texan Ranch in Amarillo, the super famous restaurant appeared in a lots of movies, where if you can eat a 2 kg steak, you don’t have to pay it! That night two people tried the challenge, but anyone won it! It was so funny! :)

I was wearing one of my favorite brand ever: a co-ord by Motel Rocks! If you lost some of my posts about it click here, here, here and here! Obviously I matched it with my cowboy hat and boots!

Love, Francesca

Oklahoma City

Hello everyone! I’m officially in the cowboys’ city! :) It’s incredible how many people go around wearing cowboy hat and western boots! Not only mens, but also a lots of girls! In Italy It happens only at the cinema! So, after my hat, couldn’t wear a pair of western boots?! Obvioulsly not! :)

Oklahoma is one of the “fly over states”, those central states aren’t tourist attractions, but people usually pass through them by plane from a coast to coast. In fact there isn’t much more to see, apart Stockyard City during the day (the biggest market of cattle breeding of the world, where there are a lots of cowboys’ shop and where we ate an amazing steak at Cattlemen’s) and Bricktown during the night (an area with a lots of bars and clubs with music, concerts and the stadium).

With my beloved boots I wore my Wildfox sunglasses and a black jersey dress by American Apparel.

Love, Francesca

Route 66, Francesca Bellavita

From Springfield to Oklahoma City

Hello everyone! :) Here I am again on my Route 66 from Springfield to Oklahoma City! We leave Missouri and we go to Oklahoma, driving through Kansas! Finally I found one of the famous signs on the street! Throughout this long trip we saw a lots of 50s gas stations, the Galloway world largest totem and the Blue Whale of Catoosa! So many kitsch things! I love them!

We officially arrived in the cowboys’ land… Obviously I immediately bought a hat. I love it! I know, I’ll always wear it during my travel! I wore it with another t-shirt from Smartness Lab, a new brand that I’ve already spoken about here! Their creations are so fabulous! :)

Love, Francesca

From Saint Louis to Springfield

Hello everyone! Today we’re going to Springfield! On the way we stop in Fanning, where there is the biggest chair of the world (?!) and we visit a lots of old gas stations consecrated to the Route 66. We arrive in Springfield, where I booked the 50′s inspired motel Rail Heaven, famous for have hosted Elvis in 1956.  I love it! The cherry on the top is my first Drive-in cinema after dinner! I saw “Back to the future”! Amazing!

I wore my new amazing glitter shoes of Lagoa World, a brand I discovered during Pitti in June, when I immediately fall in love with it! I like my multicolour glitter sandals, but I also love sneakers! Go to discover their website:

On our Route 66!

Morning everyone! In Chicago we rent a jeep and we started our trip on route 66! First destination: Saint Louis! We stopped in Funks Grove, a small village famous for its maple syrup where obviously I bought a lots of bottle of it! I love!!! :)

We had lunch at Palm Grill Cafe’, a 50s diner in Atlanta, an amazing town with a lots of shops consecrated to the Mother Road.
In Saint Louis we visited the Gateway Arch: really high and majestic.
After this beautiful day, the dinner with hot dog and beer in a club where we listened to the blues live music was the cherry on top!
During the day I wore a tank by Smartness Lab, a new brand I’ve just discovered that I love! :)
Next stop: Springfield! :)
Love, Francesca
