We've come to that part of the summer where your entire Instagram feed feels like reading a travel magazine. From celebrities to influencers—and just your regular IRL friends—everyone on the planet seems to be on an amazing vacation. That list also includes Selena Gomez, fresh off her cousin's wedding and currently doing it up in Italy with her girlfriends. She looks like she's having a fantastic time (and wearing some extremely cute dresses), but best of all, it's a birthday trip: Gomez turned 27 last week. Frankly, it's hard to think of a better way to celebrate another trip around the sun than with gorgeous Mediterranean sunsets and pasta around every corner.
"Well I’m 27 now. I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your words on my bday. Not just the quick notes," Gomez captioned a photo with a totally gorgeous sunset in the background. "The thought that goes behind every word you write usually ends up with me crying grateful tears like I did last night. Praying for all of you!! I LOVE YOU."
According to People, Gomez's grandparents also joined the group for at least part of the trip. “She just turned 27 and is celebrating in Rome and Capri. She’s having a good time and enjoying herself with her grandparents,” a source told the magazine. “She’s getting some relaxation in but is also excited to get back home and back to work."
Everything about this Italian getaway looks incredible. "Me, Italy -trying desperately to look like a Fellini film," Gomez wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of herself on the water.
Gomez's friend Raquelle Stevens posted a birthday message for the actress/singer on Twitter, as well as some more shots of Italy that are making us want to book a flight right this second. "Happy birthday sugar! You are beauty inside and out. You have changed my life only for the better. 💕," Stevens wrote on Twitter.
Other friends along on the trip have been posting, too:
Bellissima! We'll update this post with more vacay pics, should they become available.
