Denim and uniforms

Les Copains

A casual look for me today. Denim never goes out of fashion!

My black bag

and a pair among my favourite shoes.

A nice morning in the city for a coffee sitting in the open air where I can see peole passing by ... ( which is something I really enjoy )

Men in uniform always attract my attention and their elegance never is out of fashion too!

They are very kind  in Italy, and ready to help!

These last two are wearing traditional uniforms not in use anymore. ( what a pity I wasn't fast enough to shoot them at the front ... )

Back to my dress ... and a little secret ... 

... It is sleeves now, but wasn't when I bought it!

For me fashion is born to be personalized!!!

My nest ...

Probably I have already told you that I am a fan of design furniture , in any case, today I want to dedicate my post to ... my armchair!
(Yes, you have read well )
Of course for me is very special...

 When I want to comfortably relax after a day at work or enjoy an evening at home and surfing on the net ( I have a lot to do with my blog!! )

it can be a chaise-longue!

When I happen to have a guest ...

It becomes a real, comfortable bed!

If you consider the fact that my home  isn't as big as an  old castle, you can get why I have bought an armchair which just takes a small place, and can have extra uses !

My armchair is my soft, warm nest! 
Have you got a place that you specially like,  at home?

I have been working hard!

At last my clothes are neatly hung into my wardrobe  again and I can find (almost ) everything.  I also found things I have been looking for long!


Surely, those of you who have recently moved house know what I mean:

Boxes everywhere and and a lot to do!!

to say nothing of the help I had to provide to the bricklayers in order to have the flat ready for the day...

But now that the worst has gone, I can slowly go back to my habits!

The Bridge

And you can't imagine how glad I feel for that!

Old Mr. Bangio,  had  very stressful days too in seeing  all that  mess around

but now he has realized that, whatever the house, there always  is a little place for him  by me ...

What can two friends share?

SHARE the first word which comes to my  mind

When I think about the four days I have just spent with Greetje
( of No Fear of Fashion )
who came to Turin 

We shared the sun and pleasant Spring in the city, eating in  the open air 

We chatted sharing thoughts and feelings.

Of course we also had  nice days of  shopping together!!

We found and tried  dresses, and shared our passion for fashion.

We  laughted and had fun, as only old friends can do!

( This post is dedicated to her... )

It has been a fortnight full of emotions for me, and they haven't  always been pleasant ones...

As many of you remember I have sold the flat were I live 

but now, at last, I have found one with the sight over the old roofs that I was looking for ...

And, do you know what does follow a dream mean??
A lot of extra work and worries!!
By the way, have you noticed what I have in my left hand?

I have made up my mind and bought a pair of short sight glasses!

Here it is on me :

now I can catch all the beauty around  and, I feel ... I am ready for new emotions!!

It's Spring again!!

Have you realized?? It's Spring again!!! And the flowers have started blooming ...
( I wish it is the same in your part of the world! )

I have just find a pair of earrings really perfect for my today's mood

And I am wearing a green ( do you call it green? ) dress

to celebrate the passage from Winter to the new season!

I love big cities because you can always find something special that makes you feel like a princess!

and in these days also delicious chocolate eggs! 
I can only look at them, because as I said last week, I  have  bought mine.

To tell the second half of the Easter egg is already over! :-(
Look at  these small ones! They would perfectly match my dress...

O.k., I will be a good girl this extra chocolate!

 fennel, kiwi and raisins salad for dinner today!!

Same coat with yellow dress...

This week, I paired the grey (MaxMara ) coat to my yellow dress...quite different, isn't it?

Brown shoes and bag
( I have been wearing both very often recently! )

And added ( double rounded ) two long necklaces 

Really useless to buy new clothes at the moment for two very good  reasons : my closet is full of old ones which still work...

... and secondly because the weather here is really bad at the moment! With cold, rainy and windy days ... so I find it impossible to think of spring outfits!!
( there will be time before long ... )

My only purchase this week has been ...

... a fantastic Easter chocolate egg!
which I immediatly opened and tasted ! So thin and bitter...I really  couldn't resist!!
Have you already bought one all for yourself this year??
