Along the river ...

A grey cloudy day in the city can be boring and sad

or the perfect day for a walk along the river! 

I am wearing  a blue dress on my yellow cardigan ( a touch of colour was needed in such a dreary day! )

not visible in the photos, my necklace has a small silver pendant in the shape of a  coffee bean ...

... and that reminds me ... there is a lovely cafe' just across the river!

coffee time!! ( unmissable break for me )

A moment of pleasure and the chance to enjoy the sight of canoes gliding on the  river

A last photo 

and then it's time to go back toward the center of the city ...

I need a sunny place...

Two weeks ago, Sue of A Colourful Canvas, posed with a ( very lovely ) party dress outdoors, last week Greetje of No fear of fashion faced the January's wind to get the photos for her post

So, this week I walked I in search  of a sunny  place to take sharp photos

a warm spot, as I am wearing a silk dress (  above another one )

And ... here it is the place!

An old building recently beatifully restored with a special care to conserve the traces of past times. They are my favourite! I would love having my home in one of these buildings ...

You can never know ... maybe in the future .... Anyway, do you like my green dress? This year I have seen a lot of green clothes in shops here ...

( and in my closet I found a green gemstone necklace )

Liviana Conti

It has a  loose shape ... ( a bit tooo much on me? ) and it's a bit different from those I usually wear ...

A loose, green dress and my dreams! That's all for today, dears ...

The dress

The first part of today's post is for Greetje, who wanted to see the dress I was wearing in my last post. In fact it wasn't clearly visible in the photo of me sitting on the bench.


Now I am wearing it with my  boots, a blue bag 

and a red necklace.

As temperatures are low at the moment here, I am wearing the dress on another one and then, when I go out, I add a long candigan on top.

By the way, the dinner which I had been talking of last time, has been a success, ( it also included homemade  tortellini, and that sounds really unbeliable !! )

With Christmas and New Year's day which are at the back, now there is only one celebration left, on the 6th of January

In Italy, according to the tradition, an old, ugly woman, flying on her broom, will bring presents to good children. For those who misbehave, there will be a stocking filled with ( sweet ) coal...

If you  hung your stocking ( I always do ), I hope there will be some presents in it!

Waiting for Christmas ...

Well, it seems impossible to me, (!) but next Wednesday it will be the Christmas eve again ...

I am out for the last presents, as this year I am definitely late!

There are so many other things I have yet to do! In fact I will also be the host of the Eve dinner ... ( you have read well, that sounds incredible also to me! But as the ancient Romans said : semel in anno licet insanire!! )

I have decorated my home for enjoying a pleasant atmosphere,

I have chosen a sparkling bracelet, 

Now I  just have to buy  some delicious food...

... and wish you all the best as well as the sweetest Christmas day!

P.s. the Roman saying in English means: once a year you can do something really crazy!

Leather colour accessories and ... the city by night!

I was in the waiting room of a medical center the other day. As the place was well lighted and there was no one around ... why don't shoot for a post??  ( it's surprising how creative a blogger can be ... :-)

I was out from the morning that day so I was wearing a black and beige dress, a short cardigan, a beautiful red necklace ( a present from a dear friend )

and  leather colour boots and bag ( for me a very versatile colour and easy to match )

Things went on longer than my husband and I had thought and it was dark when we went out

so could enjoy the sight of the city with Christmas lights.

That day was the anniversary of our marriage

so we decided to stay out for dinner ... 

I wasn't wearing an evening dress but I was happy  all the same!

Die hard ... :-)

Hi girls! First of all I want to thank all of you for the comments on my last post and for the mails I have received ... they have touched my heart and supported me after the accident in which mr. Bangio and I have been involved. Now the worst has gone and we are feeling better and better...

As you can see, we are now ready to post!

And I like starting again with  the photos of the exhibition I visited a couple of days  before the accident...

... stylish, ladylike hats ... Little works of art!

So beautiful and feminine,

So funny!!

Doesn't, this one remind you Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Well, my hat has very little in common with those fantastic old ones!

I love the extra touch hats give to an outfit, but , have you ever noticed the way they leave your hair??
