End of August in Perinaldo

We are almost at the end of August : I must pile up as much beauty as I can.

Fill my eyes with memories

and my heart with emotions.

I will bring them back in mind little by little during the winter

And they will warm me long.

Today I am visiting the little village of Perinaldo
( Liguria region )

It's one of those tousands villages which  show the true soul of my country.

Away from the  famous touristic resorts there are no big hotels but stone houses

Frescoes in the alleys 

And the voice of old fountains ...

Look at my back : the sea is shining!
Tomorrow a whole day on the beach ...

Steet style

Today is the 15th of August which is a national holiday here.
I  celebrate it with a different post about street style on holiday.
Most of the ladies I took photos of are over 40 years old

This one is wearing a lace dress and has a scarf in her hair.
She is back from the supermarket, but doesn't  give up being stylish! 

( she is also on high, golden-coloured sandals )

A young lady with a gorgeous dress

Nice blue  dress with a big neckline  for a walk with husband

Mini dress for the beach

Elegant  neutral colour for cocktail time

I always like when ladies dress up! 

Who is my favourite? The lady above, very elegant while  chatting on the net!

Have a wonderful day ...

The most modern of my skirts

Hello darlings!  I am wearing today the most modern of my skirts

Away from the heat of the city I went to Liguria region. I took photos at a seaside resort called Bordighera.
Staying by the see is always a relief when it's too hot !

Here it is my super modern skirt . As you see it has a very loose waist closed by a rope
( please note my necklace. Greetje bought it for me in one of her visit to Turin. 
It's very summery and soooo chic! )


A medium sized bag which I can carry on my shoulder and having my hands free


I found a happy medium between high heels and flat shoes 
Which is at the moment my style...

The top is knitted and comfortable. It is not visible in photos,  but it has a very accurate manifacture that looks like a lace. I couldn't resist to have it ( Falconeri )  even if iI I am not a fan of sleveeless top.
I decided to buy it after thinking for a while . 
At the end I am satisfied with the purchase. 

Bordighera is where I bought my skirt a couple of weeks ago
( nice shops here, with clothes a bit different from those I usually buy )

Summer is a good time for experimenting something different.
Not bad going out of comfort zone when you are on holiday, right?

St. Giulio

This post refers to the second day in Orta ( small city on Orta lake  )
 I was wearing a different t-shirt .

Even if my platform shoes were very comfortable , I had to buy a pair of flat sandals to be able to safely walk on pebblestones! 
( is what happens when you decide for a very lightweight luggage!!)

Then I was ready for a visit to the tiny island of San Giulio

A world of silence, where there is a monastery , a small restaurant  and

many narrow halleys where you could  see  the   shining water of the lake in the distance.

I was caught by the silent beauty of the island

where many indications invited visitors to be silent in respect of the place 
and the meditation that there took place .

The same day my husband helped a swallow

And finally we had dinner in the open air, at a typical little restaurant with tablecloths of different colours.

It has been  a very  special day.
