SS. Filippo and Giacomo's Square

I use to spend part of my summer in a tiny village among olive trees
 ( Airole )

it is only 10km. from the sea (many of my followers already know the place )

The very center of the village is its small square...

with the fountain and the church...

Can you see the tables of the cafe over there?

People sit on the benches and look what it's going on...( which most of the time is very little!)

I sip coffee and surf on the internet or invite my friends to come for the day...

 there isn't much to do, but I always enjoy the quiet and relaxing  living here!

A hot day in the city

A hot day...o.k. but it isn't a good reason to stay at home!

Les Compain

or to wear  less elegantly...

So, let's follow me in the city!

Everything has a different face in summer, and I like when the fountains spray and refresh the air!

and the old building tell the tourists about past times...

What about my sandals? In my opinion there are very few sandals as feminine as the T-bar...

and a blue dress is always o.k.!

 Here you are something quite old but still working to refresh your day...

Wouldn't it be nice to go around on a scooter and feel the warm, air of  the sleepy city?

I wish you  a wonderful 15th of August which in Italy is a national holiday!

Just to check!

Yes, summer is going on well and, back from The Netherlands, I have received the mail I have been waiting for months...

The dear Greetje of no fair of fashion is coming to Italy!

And as I know she likes shopping and Italian brands, I promised to bring her to Serravalle outlet village

So, some days ago, I went there just to check that everything was o.k.  

Salvatore Ferragamo

Dolce e Gabbana


 I put on my yellow dress and asked mr. Bangio to get ready...

Max Mara-Fratelli Rossetti


Well, I have said...just to check...but to be honest...I have also purchased something, because...the last summer sales are the best!

What shape do dreams have?

Hi to eveybody! And many sorry about my lack of comments on your blogs rececently but I have been veeeeery busy ... There has been something which has completely caught my attention....

I am sure you can guess what I mean... I went to The Netherlands!! And that was something I really have been dreaming about hundreds of times from when I  got acquainted with Greetje through her blog 

Amsterdam is a really beautiful city, but I have to confess that I only had eyes for  Greetje!

She is wonderful indeed ( I am not only referring  to her physical aspect ) and did so much to make my staying there the most comfortable and enjoyable!

We walked in the city,  had a lot of great cappuccino breaks ( we two are very fond of it! ), chatted as we were old friends, and she was so kind ! ( on my part I can't tell how sorry I was when I realized I was not  able to take good photos  of her with her camera!!)

We did some shopping together ( isn't that what women are born for??   :-) 

and I met a very special person :
Ron, her husband, whose hospitality and  friendly smile I won't forget!
(  despite the rain, he also arranged for me a wonderful travel in the canals on his boat!! )

We visited a delightful museum dedicated to bags,
and, at last, we focused our attention on Dutch design ( and we bought a new pair of sunglasses because that was  the one we two extremely needed!   :-)

Just a  few things of life are as precious as friendship!

Greetje promised she will come to Turin soon, so...let's stay in tune girls!!

About the kindness...

I was on my way home a fortnight ago, 

and, as usual, I passed next to of the nice garden which I have already used  once as a background for my photos

The garden was especially beautiful because it was full of flowers  

Of course, to keep a garden in orden requires a lot of work, and in fact there was a lady who was taking care of the roses

I stopped for a moment admiring the garden, so the woman offered me a bunch of those flowers...

at home I thought that the kindness makes this world a better place where to live!

( by the way, it has been quite chilly recently here and I have restyled the asimmetrycal dress I wore some weeks ago )

Are you ready?

Are you ready to follow me to the seaside?    :-)

Liviana Conti

Of course that requires the choosing of the appropriate dress...


and a huge straw bag for the beach! ( do you have one? They are soooo cute! )

At last  has come the time to pack up and enjoy some days by the sea!!
And packing up is so an hard job for me!
How can I decide to bring only one bag on holidays?
And to say nothing about shoes!!

( so you can see in this photo my extra bag...just in case...)

I know  well  that, very soon, I will start realizing   I need just what I have left at home...

I hope that packing up is an easier task for you...


...and that you are enjoyng the summer as well...

See you next week!
