Rainy weekend

Two rainy days on end are a loooong time  and, probably, I wouldn't have gone out, 


since, with very low temperatures and my warm clothes already put away, 
I didn't know what to wear 

But I had to withdraw a pair of my favourite shoes which I had taken to repair.
And so, made up my mind and went out.

It was worthwhile since, in a shop, I saw a copper bracelet that matched nicely to my rings. Of course, I immediately bought it! 
( but I swear ... only paid 9€ for It! )

And wore it right away!

Three more ( red ) things made my day:
a beautiful rose which was about to bloom


a mill ( in the center of Turin!?! ) which reminded me a dear friend

and a funny, but very gracious, dancer!

At last I reached the shoemaker
 ( I have to confess that I had never seen such a tidy workshop! )

My babies are again at home now !!

Visiting Asti

Though I love the city of Turin,
it happens that an event makes it overcrowded.

So, a fortnight ago I decided to spend the day in  Asti.

It is not far from where I live, not too big, quiet and tidy.

Ancient how I like.

The perfect place for a relaxing tour!

 I found so much beauty to admire!

Besides, it was Sunday and no shopping was possible there!

I know that  it may sound like a downside, 
nothing could distract me from the sightseeing.

I really enjoyed the day ...

Mustard colour skirt

Max and co.

I can't stay long away from shopping and while at home with flu ( see previous post ), I bought this skirt online

Mustard colour is not easy to find and I couldn't miss the chance to have it in my closet! ( or ... could I ??? )

The skirt has a lovely an unusual shape, shorter at the front that caught my attention

Luisa Spagnoli

And goes nicely with my blue jacket !

Of course a new  bracelet was owed!

To tell the truth, the whole outfit looks a bit hostess-uniform style, which I emphasized wearing a bandana.

Now, looking at the photos, I am wondering if it was too much! 

What time does  the flight take off ???

At work!

I took a week off from  blogging and  I planned some  time with my dears ... 

I had thought to stay on the coast, enjoying my days under the sun and celebrating Easter with my old parents.
But, as often happens, things take their own way : only clouds in the sky on the coast, plus I got a bad flu and quickly had to come back home!

In any case, trying  to see the best side of things, after the days with high fever, I had some time for working ...

Working for me has different meanings.
One of the most pleasant, consists in leaving my creativity free to create ...

I need a very long time to elaborate a new project and,  while forced at home, I had a good chance of making and unmaking with my beads!

I really wanted some coral colour jewelry for next summer.
Then I realized that the beads I had, looked very nice with  some yellow ringstones and a gold colour little bell ...


My bracelet and ring are now ready. They will be perfect next summer!
But, in my opinion don't match badly  to my today's trousers eihter ...

I hope you had a better Easter week, but in any case... remember that sometimes there is a beautiful B side in life!!

Spring's arrived, at last!!
Don't you feel some difference around?
Or an extra happiness, inside ??

Les Copains-Weekend by MaxMara

thanks to high temperatures and a day of sunshine,  lighter weight clothes can go out of my closet!!
I love a denim shirt on a  classic skirt. 
Do you owe one? 

I also took out of my closet my  warm,  woolen, Furla cape just  to stay on the safe side !
( an Italian saying reccomends to be careful in months with a letter R  )

( statue in the center of Turin )

( bracelets of different materials )

I am not sure I will be able to post next week, and so, I wish you ...

... Happy Easter!

Through the glass

Hi, dearest! Today I am not the subject of the post...

I want you to follow me and my assistant through Turin

Luisa Spagnoli

and have a look at the window shops with us


in search of  ideas for spring.


The new slim fit  trousers caught my attention as they make a modern look.

Patrizia Pepe

 And talking about modetn outfits, I noticed a golden pleated skirt matched to a jacket with red details and an oriental style print.


It seems that we will see a lot of red  here!
( I should definitely add some red in my closet ... )


( Or this delightful black and white dress very my taste! )


Do you like getting inspirations by the shop windows?
I hope you enjoyed the tour ...

Like many women with straight hair I love curls.
I think they add a feminine accent but I have always found it difficult to make them myself

and besides, they generally  last only a few hours on me...
But I think that now I have found the solution!
I bought a new curling whose name sounds like a promise!!

I want to inform you that this is not an advertisement. I simply desire to share something which solved my problem ( probably there are many other devices around that work as nicely as this one! )

Once I solved the  problem with hair, ( women often have  biiiiiig problems with hair!! ) the other day I could concentrate my attention on clothes and decided to wear a grey striped t-shirt and checked skirt ( both old and already posted )

which I brightened up with a colourful scarf 
(a gift from my friend Greetje )

Les copains

A grey jacket can give you a severe look, but not with a curly hairstyle ... I think I  will use often my new curling !
