Columns, shades and August's light ...

Another August  is almost over ...

the light is pretty different

and the shades are longer.

A purple top and my striped skirt

The city is still quiet,  waiting for the September rush

My jacket seems to work also with stripes

thoughts at random, crowd my mind

nothing new, a pinch of sadness...

By the way ... I am on heels again!

Cloudy afternoon

At last some clouds  have covered the sky and I can wear my new jacket!

After weeks of hot sunshine I am enjoying a little fresh air

Suddendly the place has lost its summer look

It's useless to stay at the beach, besides the sea is rough and swimming is forbidden...

Armani jeans

So, I sit down for a coffe break and glance through the Vogue Italia issue with the new season trends!!

I start thinking  how to mix and match cardigans and light weight coats, wide skirts ( my latest passion ) and my beloved dresses!

but it is just a brief ( enthusiastic ) break...

... and, luckily, there still is the  second half of Augus before ... going back homet!!

After all, the fall/winter season is very long, so ... why hurry? I will have plenty of time in the future to mix and match!!    :-)

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 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???

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?? )
