Light blue


Light blue is a nice colour and I find it goes especially well with white or grey.


I am going to  add this shirt in my wish list...



...if you are invited to a ceremony...

...ooops! I caught this guy in a shop window!

Ventimiglia is a small town by the sea. It is very caotic ( you can't image how much! ) and it is about 130 km. from where I live.
I don't know the reasons why I like it, because is far from being perfect...but there is a nice garden in the center with many palm trees.

There is a daily market where they sell fruit, vegetables

and beautiful, fragrant  flowers.

There are cafes ( but a few have wi fi ) and people coming from all parts of Italy...

 ...and finally  a long promenade where you can walk!
Perhaps is the constant colourful confusion that reigns there, and its friendly inhabitants what make me feel always at ease !

By the sea

As in Italy 25th April is a public holiday, my husband and I decided to spend a few days by the sea... and Bangio, as usual was one of the group! 

The weather wasn't so good,  I had to wear my rain jacket and I couldn't sunbathing on the beach, but the temperatures were high enough to sit outside and enjoy the sea breeze.

Some cafes had wi fi, and magazines to read...

  ...and was nice  to look around in search of  cute things to photograph...

For some reason that I can't understand, the post BREAKFAST AT CORSO and all the beautiful comments I had received, have disappeared from my blog! Now I can just republish the photos and the text. Once again SORRY!


When I am in the mood for a great breakfast, one of my best places is Corso in Cuneo. Their pastries ( and above all the "veneziana" ) are really delicious.

Cuneo is a small town in my way towards the sea of Liguria. A stop there for me is a must. ( sometimes my dog  doesn't want to look at the camera )

As I said:today Bangio hasn't the slightest idea to collaborate!

The last one

Have you ever thrown away things you shouldn't?
It often happened to me!!  And I still remember that time with my husband, looking 160 euros in the trash...
...more recently, one after another the spoons of our tea set has disappeared.
You can see the only one that has survived!
As a result I had the idea to make a new set and started buying a tea spoon when I happened to find a cute one.
A few days ago I bought the last one.

Here there is the complete set. It took me a couple of years to finish, but I'm quite proud now!

A nice day


I am very fond of bags and I have many. This time I have chosen this one. It is quite old but I love that. 

Then a pair of big earrings.

As the weather is bad here, I put on my wool jacket and scarf, my rain hat ( just in case ). Bangio doesn't matter the weather, he has his raincoat on and we two are ready...

...to the city center for some shopping...

...and finally coffee time...
I wear a silk shirt (Max Mara Group ), a green wool cardigan ( Malìparmi ) and a pair of  very confortable Geox shoes

Graphic prints


Well, I think I can't afford a Prada...at least not for the time being... but  I like very much...

 anyway, today I start my day with my grafic print dress ( Marella ) and a smile!

Please note: no tights today! ( but don't watch too much my pale legs! )

My rain jacket ( Nike ) protects me from chilly air in the morning  

and finally, one of my many huge bags ( Coccinelle ). For me, when I am at work, the bigger the better!

Apricot tones

Around town blooms the colour of apricots on T-shirt and sweaters! I find it nice as is gentle and bright ...

... it can look sporty....

 ...or more elegant

...but, in my opinion, it is always  very good for ladies!

Monday morning

It was quite early this morning and I was having my breakfast...the sun was in the sky and I started daydreaming...

...to be in a terrace full of flowers and plenty of time to dedicate to my hobbies.
The old Bangio next to me, breathing the fresh morning air  and  his eyes half closed...
...8.00: time over. Stop dreaming. I am ready for a looooooong work week.
A nice day to all of you!

A warm day

Today is a very warm day, at last spring seems has arrived here too!! It's time to take off my coat. 

Grey is one of my favourite colours as I find it elegant but not as severe as black. This wool jacket I wear  ( Mila Schon ) isn't new but I always feel at ease when wearing it.

My quite classic purse has a nice purple tinge that I find is fine with grey...

...and finally I have a green giada necklace I made myself.

A post from the kitchen

I have to confess that  I am not good at cooking, while I am quite good at heating frozen food in the microwave! Then, when I come home from work, it's not hard for me to become a housewife.

The only food that can't lack in my kitchen ( apart from frozen things) is fresh vegetables, and I am lucky to have a greengrocer just next door...

...all that was to say that probably the best part of my fridge is the outside!

In fact my collection of magnets is there on display...

...I love to buy them around the world...

...sometimes I receive one as a gift from a friend...

... and I like to write sentences.

Among all, my favourite is this one that says:

A style...for two!

I hadn't realized that my doggie and I...share the same style! A few days ago I noticed we were wearing a blue trench.

The old Bangio looked quite elegant in this coat...

...I gave him a glance and smiled...

...then I went on reading.
