My sneakers and a fantastic exhibition...

HI!What about a new post from my part of the world?

The Christmas holidays at last have arrived !!  And that  means a lot of spare time for everything I love ( including posting)
As I like art, the holidays also offer the opportunity to enjoy some interesting exhibitions...and Turin helds a very special one at present ...

                                               Portait of Carlo de' Medici 1466

dedicated to Andrea Mantegna ( one of the most important Italian Renaissance artists ) who painted such perfect masterpieces!

And so...there I went, wearing my new sneakers and a pair  of red trousers!
( Christmas presents, you know ).

In the monumental  building that held the exhibition, there was a very nice cafeteria,

 Before going out, I made up my mind for a cappuccino comfortably sitting after a two-hour visit through the halls ( Those who know me  know that I can hardly say no to a good cappuccino! )

I spent a nice afternoon and the  walking wasn't a problem at all:I was not in high heels yesterday!! ( But of course I also have fantastic high heels recently bought in the wardrobe )

                                         P.s. a very Happy New Year to all of you!!     


  1. I love that sort of shoe - so comfy! We call them trainers in the UK. Your red trousers look great as well. It is good to get some different style of clothes occasionally. It is a year since my daughter persuaded me to start wearing jeans - and now I love them!

    1. Hi, Rebecca! It's funny that in Italy we use for those shoes an English word and people don't know that it doesn't correspond to the exact translation!

      Thanks for commenting

  2. How lovely to see your post pop up, Dan! That exhibition looks properly interesting, and the cafeteria looks like a perfect place to recover with a cappuccino! I do love them too! Your sneakers look perfectly comfortable and I'm loving your red trousers! Wishing you a Happy New Year! xxx

    1. Hi, dear! I have to admit that missed my blog friends and never thought to stop posting for ever ...
      I am very glad to to read from you!

  3. Oh darling Dan, I am so pleased you posted again. I missed your posts. Your sneakers (we call them that as well in the Netherlands) are very fashionable. Your red trousers are very good. They are 3/4, leaving enough room for the sneakers to shine. You are dressed in a casual, relaxed way I am not used to with you. But I like it. You do casual as well as elegant.
    A very happy new year to you and your husband. I hope we will meet again in 2020.

    1. A wonderful new year to you Greetje and the hope to meet you more often...

  4. It's so nice to see your smiling face. Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

  5. I wish that the new year takes you everything you desire!

  6. Lovely lovely photos - so good to see you back
