We know Father’s Day is right around the corner, but we can’t deny just how much we love spending some time with mother dearest. Whether it’s afternoon tea or a weekend getaway, we love us some girl time. Even if she not-so-casually mentions just how much she can’t wait for grandbabies one (or five) too many times. Speaking of mother-daughter duos, we’ve seen some pretty great ones recently: Gwyneth and her daughter recently had an adorable double take moment, Reese Witherspoon and her daughter did too. And now it looks like the latter duo are back on the ‘gram to give us some serious travel envy.
Reese and her daughter Ava have temporarily ditched their LA digs to spend some time in Italy. Reese teased her followers a couple days ago with photos of a delicious looking pizza and an idyllic morning view accompanied with the hashtag, #GuessWhereIAm. Later that day, she revealed that she was in Rome by posting a photo of her 15-year-old look-alike – er, daughter – Ava Phillippe’s feet in a pair of gladiator sandals alongside the caption, “When in #Rome!!! @avaphillippe (OK, cat is out of the bag. We love you Italy!)”
The two seem to be having the Italian vacation we’ve all dreamed of ever since we watched Lizzie McGuire and Gordo scour the city in their Disney movie. Reese and Ava visited the Church of Sant’Ignazio (where Reese sported a pair of floral shorts from her new line Draper James), the Sistine Chapel, Arch of Constantine and of course, the iconic Trevi Fountain.
Oh ya, they also had dinner with Italian fashion legend Valentino. You know, as you do when visiting Rome.
Thank goodness it’s Friday because we’re not entirely sure how much more office time we can handle after looking at these Instagram snaps. We might spend the rest of the afternoon working or we might secretly be stalking every airline’s website for the next flight to Roma. We’ll never tell.
Have you and your mom taken a super fun vacation together? Tell us all about it in the comments below.
