Summer heat

It seems that we are going to have a hot summer here this year. Some weather report I heard, said it will be as in 2003. Well, I like summer, but I am not sure I am ready for that kind of high temperatures!

So, I had to find adequate solutions:
first of all, tied up hair for me! 
Then, can white clothes help?? I don't know for sure, but today  I am wearing mine...

...matched to a blue bag

and blue and white sandals ( Emporio Armani )

( ... a little relaxing break ... )

Black and white bangles and big ring

What's the weather like in your part of the world? Have you got  any refreshing drinks ( without sugar, please! ) to suggest???

For the first time in my life, this year I  have done some gardening on my balcony, and now ... my plants are blooming!
( hence, isn't today a fantastic day?? )

No one around today and I need  photos for the blog...

... so, I am going to do everything by myself! 


Do you like flats??

I have a nice set of them and since I go up and down three floors of stairs  every day, I am wearing often and often

( a close up of me made necklace and coral earrings )

These are my softer ones ( Giorgio Armani )

and the most feminine!  ( Luca Valentini )

Aren't they cute??

Flats are very easy to match to trousers ...
... now I am trying to style them with dresses and skirts!!

Front door

While last time, I have been attracted by the view of flowery balconies,

today it is the turn of my front door...

a bit unusual, but XIXth century's buildings have entrances which quite  differ from those in  new buildings.

For the post I have brushed up clothes and accessories I already posted
( but in totally different outfits!!! )

and added four bracelets ( of wood, metal and gemstones ).
Nothing really new today. But, wait a minute...

... I made this pair of earrings a few days ago, hence they are totally new for you!!

So, long, new earrings to share! 

And, finally, please note the sign next to the front door. It advises, in latin, to be aware of the dog  

In fact someone is keeping an eye on my home:very dangerous to go ahead!!

Days off ...

National holiday in Italy, and having three days off, we decided for a weekend to the seaside

The weather was fine and some people were having a swim

For me just sunbathing as I am waiting for warmer water... which means at least the end of June!

So, with plenty of time, I lifted up my eyes and admired the varity of the balconies

beautifully enriched with flowers

of different kind...

I walked through the city on block heels

wearing a new pair of earrings ( husband's present from Expo )

Awaiting to show a tanned skin soon!!

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 !

Vanity by FUTURA

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