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!

  2. Happy National Holiday Dan! I hope everyone is celebrating Italia and enjoying the day! I've been once to Italy, way back when I was a teenager. I would love to visit again with my husband! I always love seeing the little things on your blog. The gelatti cart and the scooter!!! So cool to see those!!!

    Yes, the t-bar sandal is very feminine! As usual, you have the most wonderful footwear and handbags!

      Someone said ( and I totally agree ) that ... Italy is a crazy country, but...beautiul!

  3. Very beautiful Dan. Cannot wait to see it all in person. Your new sandals are perfect. So sweet of your husband. And I think pumps are also also sexy. Agree?

    1. That scooter reminds me Roman Holiday, where Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck went around in Rome on a similar scooter...an unforgettable old movie! ( 1953 ) just perfect to describe Italy in those years...
