Poncho and chestnuts

Max Mara group

At the enf of October I generally start appreciating the autumn ( probably because the summer is a faded memory  )

enjoying its quiet beauty

 and wearing soft, warm clothes.


It's time to wear my poncho again!
Today the sun and light make the day very pleasant ...

But a perfect fall day couldn't be really perfect without  chestnuts!

which remind me when I lived with my parents in a big cottage in the country. Every year we prepared chestnuts in the garden and they were delicious!!

Sweet memories... sweet and a bit melancholic just like autumn...

I missed a post...

Have you noticed? I didn't post last week...
...the fact is that I  have been overworking, and, a more reason was that  it poured nearly the whole week here ...

and I had no extra photos to post!

The most relevant event of my week has been a nice flower and flea market  which I visited in the only sunny day ( ! )

I was wearing a two-fabrics dress

Which at a first sight looks like a blouse and a skirt.

In the market there was a lot of ( very photogenic )stuff
and that, perhaps, was one of the  reasons why I visited it!

while I was strolling about the flea market, something caught my attention

so I brought home this cute plaster sparrow ...

 which is now waiting for me  on the coffee table of my sitting room ...

My top five!

In sunny, still warm weather a colourful dress can be easily matched to a neutral colour jacket...

plain high heel shoes

and a black bag, which goes well with ( almost ) every outfit ...

and so far ... so good!

But,  the incoming cold days call for some new mix and match! These are my ideas according to what I have seen around...

Max Mara

A touch of green


soft colours

Dolce e Gabbana

 a pinch of black

Bottega Veneta

a splash of yellow here and there


and some red to brighten foggy days!

Have you already thought about what colours would you like to wear before long?
