A winter, cloudy day, and I need some colours to bright up my morning. Luckily, sales have recently brought into my closet a cardigan ( Max Mara ), yellow, this time, and a pair of slim fitted pants ( Max Mara ). Did I need them?
the answer for me is YES. ( If it makes feel me good and helps economy... why not?! )
In any case, nothing new over here!
This is the cafe' where I have just taken my photos, in the quiet room upstairs
which overlooks the city. Everything looks so gray outside...
...but I need just two spare hours to have a quick look around...
...and think I made an unmissable bargain!!
Dan. Garments of Max Mara, have a quality exceptional. So buy on sale is a success.ReplyDelete
Saffron yellow is beautiful and serves to brighten the gray days.
And the pants you is perfect. Have a sculptural type and both together are beautiful.
The necklace I love, besides being beautiful is what you need your look.
I see you've released your new handbag.
Your coffee is lovely. Sure, when you are there, do not want to leave.
I love the brand, and besides I can buy MM clothes at a ridiculous price in the last days of winter sales! The necklace is an old purchase but it works on that cardigan...Delete
Classy! And bravo to you for supporting the economy, tee hee! Seriously, those pants were made for you. Beautiful fit, and styled to a T!ReplyDelete
I have named two of my best reasons for buying and not feeling guilty!! ( I have many other arrows...)Delete
I love your look and great coat! Kisses.ReplyDelete
Very nice! One of the great things about a sweater that color is that it helps brighten the gray days of winter, but also crosses over nicely to spring. I did take advantage of a couple of sales online, one thing for this time of year and two for spring/summer, gives me something to look forward to :)ReplyDelete
You are suggesting me another extraordinary reason to buy in clearance, Flo !!Delete
I agree you needed them and it made you feel good! Very important! Love the bright cardigan, it looks amazing on you and that necklace is fantastic!ReplyDelete
...every woman always needs something new! ( even when she has a crowded closet!!! )Delete
I think you made a good purchase Dan. This golden yellow is so pretty and nice to wear in the winter. So lovely with your necklace and great purse. Love the shape of this one. Fabulous fur collar and chic coat are beauties. I could imagine sharing tea with you at this cafe!ReplyDelete
blue hue wonderland
That would be wonderful! I think you would like the cafe , the art and , of course...the shopping in the city!!Delete
You have the perfect figure for those pants.ReplyDelete
I will tell my husband the next time (okay yesterday and the day before) when I need to buy something that I'm just doing my duty supporting the economy. I'm sure he'll understand : ) And if not, I'll just say Dan told me so.
...a touch of patriotism always works!! :-)Delete
Your coat is beautiful, looks very elegant. The neck hair is cute. The look that combines yellow and gray I really like, is a touch of color in the winter. The coffee seems a very relaxed place.ReplyDelete
That is my first yellow cardigan...in shopping there is always a first time!Delete
of course I am wearing a FAUX fur collar...
Beautiful, perfect... the coat, the trousers, the cardigan. And ..... the necklace ! You will have to buy me a copy and I will transfer money. This looks so much like me beloved yellow one. Nice bright colour, nice big chains. I am green with envy haha.ReplyDelete
A blogging friend (Aileen) went to Rome last month and I sent her on a mission for the necklace too. She came home with a cute but short one. Teal and lavender coloured. Nice too, for another purpose / outfit. No problem. But still in search for a long one.
And I am with you to support our local economy. What would happen to our countries if we were to stop buying? Everybody broke and nothing nice to look at.
While I was posting the other day, I thought it could be in some ways your style... the colour of the cardigan, the skinny pants, the brand and, of course, the necklace...I sometimes wonder if you inspire me!Delete
About the necklace, I have already find a shop where they probably will have something of the kind in many colours...I am keeping and eye on it ( I will let you know )
Nice that you think of me. If you see a nice necklace, send me a photo by smartphone hahaDelete
That is a great idea! ( you always have!! )Delete
My goodness, when I open your blog I am always stuck by your great beauty! These gray pants with the yellow cardi is lovely too.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lisa! It is nice to read kind comments like yours!Delete
I recently wore yellow and it is a fabulous colour for this time of the year with all its grey and beige outside...ReplyDelete
The trousers fit you like a glove and your classy handbag is really beautiful!
In which part of Italy do you live, Dan?
Have a lovely weekend,
Annette | Lady of Style
Yes, I have seen your beautiful blouse! Yellow ia a warm colour and it's nice in winter.I don't often wear trousers, but the one I have today are very confortable...Delete
I live in the north west of Italy nexto to Torino ( which is the city where I studied , and where I like going quite often )
Colours brighten up the dreary days! Love this shade of yellow on you, sunshiny beautiful!! The gray coat is gorgeous, yellow goes so well with gray.ReplyDelete
Have a fashionable weekend!!
I am waiting for sping days...and yellow is such a delightful colour!Delete
I wish you a wonderful day!
Sale is a great way to find classy pieces for cheap. Your cardigan has a pretty bright color. So you can wear it at spring tooReplyDelete
Have a nice day
Yes, and that is one of the reasons why I have bought that! ( I always have the best reasons to buy clothes!! :-) )Delete
Dear Dan, did you know that you're sporting one of my favourite colour combinations ever here? (Grey + mustard.) It's true, I just love that pairing, which seems to work well the whole year round, celebrating either the light or dark palette of a given season.ReplyDelete
What a fun, chunky necklace to partner with it, too. I adore plastic chains like that. They remind me of a 21st century take on the classic 1930s and 40s Bakelite and Celluloid chain necklaces and bracelets.
You look chic and fantastic, as always, my dear friend!
Tons of hugs & many thanks for your tremendously touching comment on this weekend's post,
I have just discovered the combination of gray and mustard, and I find it lovable too!ReplyDelete
...and you have such a beautiful taste in matching colours...
