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...)


Marella   


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?

  1. I discovered your blog a while ago via "No Fear of Fashion" and just love your Italian chic - no one does it like Italian women.
    My "100 grams" sheds feathers. Do you or anyone have a solution to this?

      P.s.
      Have you tried to ask where you bought your "100 grams" ? I have a synthetic one...

      I can't stand anymore either too low and too high temperatures ... very annoying indeed!! :-(

  4. I tend to wear trousers quite often in winter as well but we have a corporate dress code at work so most of mine are black so I can wear them in the office as well as around the house. You are tempting me to try some patterned ones for holidays etc though!

    1. Solid-colour trousers are probably easier to match but I have a fancy to the patterned ones!!

  5. Those pants are gorgeous, Dan, and so is that amazing gemstone necklace. I'd never heard of a "100 grams". Oh, and that café looks so inviting! xxx

    1. I discovered those "100 grams " recently and immediately bought a polyester one. It seems that a lot of people already knew them for years...

    1. A " 100 grams " is really a good solution in winter and makes it possible to wear lightweight coats as well ...

    1. This is a beautiful comment, Fiona ... thanks!

      There are many delightful old cafes in Turin which I think you would like ... And in winter we have often sunny days ( with low temperatures! )

  11. Dan , as elegant as ever in your printed pants and pretty sweater. Glad you have found a practical solution to keep you warm . Turin is indeed a beautiful city and that cafe looks so interesting. Hope your weather warms soon but at least you have clear skies.

    1. And I can also wear my not-very-warm coats...

      Turin is a charming old city and we are more likely to have clear skies in winter than in any other season here.

  12. I think it is called a puffer coat in the UK and USA. I had to grin when I read you wear trousers more and more haha. While you got me back to dresses and skirts again. But you do look elegant in your trousers Dan, I'll grant you that. Beautiful ensemble.
    In my country we wear thick coats most of the time. At the moment it is not so cold but... wet again.

    1. In real life when I spend most of my day indoors, I keep on wearing skirts too. But when it's very cold and have to stay outdoors, I prefer trousers ...especially if I have to take photos for the blog!
      I can't wait to enjoy mild temperatures!!

  17. It's definitely pants weather here! I love yours, there is something about them that gives them a slight edge. Not sure if it's the design or print or what, but I like them. What you paired them with is perfect too!

    1. You caught the detail, Flo!! The trousers have a cut at the back which allows a slight edge...

  18. You have many lovely trousers, Dan!
    I also often wear trousers in winter. But they are almost UNIQLO black leggins...
    My favorite items for cold weather are silk or wool underwear's,
    and disposable heat pack!
