Vespa!



Hi, dearest! For me there are only a few things more summery than driving a Vespa ( = wasp, in Italy the name of the scooter )


So, when I noticed there was one parked in an alley, I couldn't resist to the temptation to ride it!



Summer holidays! Time to develope my projects ( see  last post ) and to go to my favourite hairdresser for a trim!
So, before the heat ruins  my hairstyle...better take some photos!!!


Today I decided for a cotton dress without sleeves, flat sandals...


... and a white and blue necklace ...


The strong, sharp light


makes me happy ...


and a Vespa 


makes me smile ...
:-)

I hope that you too are enjoying the summer!

A summer project


Summer is the season in which I realize most of my stuff.
Mainly, for two reasons: the long days off work and my staying  in the Ligurian hinterland.


Plus, the other day, surfing in the net, I came across Antonello Tedde's luxury bags
( hand-woven for holidays, perfect for sea resort, chic anytime! )


Well, it was a flash! I wanted something of the kind...


 a huge, cotton bag for the beach!


In a few days it was sewed and ready!!
( not really ready, as you can see, many flowers haven't got the central part yet... )


Ready or not, I couldn't wait to start using it ( will have plenty of time to finish it in the next days )


By the way, loose Liviana Conti dress for me today ...


matched to my new beach bag of course!


Now I can fully enjoy my holidays, at least ... until my next project!!!

In love with the city!


Hi! My weekly post comes a little late because of the annoying heat of last days!
( it made impossible enjoy a day in the open air )
but today I am ready for a walk in search of something... cute to post!


As some of you know, Turin is the city where I studied and where I often go for many reasons...


Probably it's not very famous abroad, but it's  lovely and if you slow down the step and you look around, reveals all its  hidden beauty!


In a nice courtyard I discover a tiny shop of handmade bags


( my huge Aquascutum bag, still looks new, so I didn't buy another one )


I was wearing the flats I have posted a couple of weeks ago.


I am sooooo used to wear high heels that I felt odd in flats! 


but at least...my t-shirt with printed birds was in perfect harmony with the place!

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???


P.s.
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?? )

Selfie!


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


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

MaxMara

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!!
:-)
