Grey with flowers

With low temperatures  I am definitely preferring trousers  and so, I thought it would have been better if I had a good selection of them
( you know, I am a wise woman...)


The trousers that I am wearing today have white flowers on a grey background .
With such a rich print I opted for a plain top in pink.

And a red gemstone necklace

( One of the reasons why I love Turin, is the presence of antique  cafes that resist to the pass of  time  and the opening of new and  beautiful, but very similar to each other, places ) 

Not only the low temperatures convinced me to wear trousers more often, but I also had to adopt an extra solution to stay warm ...

In Italy we call it a "100 grams" : it's very thin and wearable underneath a coat...

At last something which really works in very cold days:

for me at the moment represents the perfect solution...
Any other ideas from your side of the world?

Richly-printed trousers

In winter almost every inside space with  sufficient light  represents an inviting place for a shooting. 
(  for me just a few things are worse than freezing temperatures )

Just like this office. 
With big windows and quite strong artificial lights !!

Do you like richly-printed trousers? I found this pair at a very discounted price and I fell  in love with  both the floral print  and the shape  ( neihter too tight nor too large ).
Well, to be honest, I have to admit that ... I very easily fall in love with  discounted, high-quality items!
Quickly  decided that, due to their light colour,  those trousers were exactly what I would have loved to wear in spring too...

They seemed to match to my bag

and even to my old cashmere cardigan.

Is  there any unmissable new piece in your closet after the end-of-the-season sales?  For me they are a temptation! But sometimes when at home  I realize that the item I have just bought  isn't really my taste ...

Not in this case anyway...I am still  satisfied with the purchase...

A fairy-tale city

During the last holidays I spent some days in Mantova.
It's  a small city  of about 40.000 inhabitants situated in the North East of Italy. 

It is crossed by the river Mincio and there are canals in the city 

Water adds to the place a magical vibe...

It was  cold in those days and here it is the best I could do to match warmth and fashion ...
( not a very good result anyway ) 
I  can't tell you how cold it was!!!

Despite the low temperatures there were cafes with tables in the open air where people were comfortably sipping coffee...
( the one above was empty because closed the day I took the photo )

Many touristic attractions 

Of special beauty

I enjoyed the tour so much!!
( another example of veeeeery relaxed outfit)

Never mind... I will look more elegant next week! 

Sorry, I couldn't resist to publish a  last  ( silly) photo...

Celebrations are over!

Hi, darlings!  What about your last weeks? 

In Italy we celebrate on the 6th of January the last national holiday of Christmas time and , if you add that both my mother and husband have their birthday in the first week of the year,  can understand that I had a very busy fortnight !  

Many of you have finished everything concerning  the celebrations  days ago,  but this is Italy, you know...

In any case,  between a dinner with parents and a meeting with  friends for  greetings  and wishes 

during the last two weeks I found some time to take  photos for the blog! 

Here, they were the days between  Christmas and New Year 's eve

We were sooooo tired! 
( but luckily now no more celebrations for a while, my dear...)

Next week something about a  journey I did ...
