Selena Gomez is living her best, most Instagrammable life in Italy, where she has been on vacation celebrating her 27th birthday all week. She started the trip in Rome and has since moved south to the Amalfi Coast with her friends.
Gomez has been pretty modest with what she has shared on her own personal Instagram of the trip: just two photos. Gomez posted her first to thank her fans for their birthday wishes. "Well I’m 27 now," Gomez wrote. "I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your words on my bday. Not just the quick notes. 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."
She shared her second Friday afternoon. "Me, Italy -trying desperately to look like a Fellini film," she wrote.
Gomez's close friend Raquelle Stevens has been much more generous with vacation shots though. She shared several photos of the sights and the food, along with one shot of Gomez out walking in the dreamy Italian town:
Gomez was last photographed out with her group by paparazzi in Civita di Bagnoregio on Wednesday. The singer wore a yellow maxi dress there by Three Graces London.
It's her third maxi dress she's been photographed in during the trip. She also wore a pastel yellow Three Graces London dress with a ruffle neckline (as seen in her Instagram) and a mint green dress.

E! got some intel on how Gomez's birthday lunch in Rome was—and specifically, what she and her friends ate. "The table shared several dishes such as raw fish, tagliatelle with lobster, pasta with vodka sauce and various salads," the source said. "They were chatting and laughing the entire time. No candles, cards or cake, but they did have dessert of ice cream and tiramisu."
