I heard it through the Grapevine


Like many people grown up by the sea, I get so enthusiast when I get to spend a day in the countryside ! The delicate colors of the Fall surely add a magical touch to the hills, and what's better than a walk by the grapevine?!.
Under my black Carla G coat, I was sporting a green lace dress I paired with a long wool cardigan. I chose to wear lace dove color tights matching my ankle boots. A girl should never be without a mongolian sheepskin scarf, I've been treasuring the green one for ages and it came in handy so many times ;-).
In these pics you can also notice my latest beauty obsession...the half moon manicure ! This has been my first attempt and I was pretty satisfied with the result, I did it with Chanel Peridot (by the way, a brand new bottle is waiting for you if you win my Giveaway !) and OPI red nailpolish. What do you think, would you try it as well ?.


Come molte persone cresciute vicino al mare, sono entusiasta quando posso trascorrere una giornata in campagna ! I colori delicati dell'autunno aggiungono sicuramente un tocco magico alle colline e cosa è meglio di una passeggiata tra i vigneti ?!.
Sotto il cappotto nero di Carla G, ho indossato un abitino di pizzo verde che ho abbinato ad un lungo cardigan in lana. Ho deciso di indossare calze in pizzo color tortora, stesso colore dei tronchetti. Una ragazza non dovrebbe mai stare senza una sciarpa di mongolia ed io ho custodito la mia sciarpa verde per anni, ogni tanto si rende veramente utile !.
In queste foto potete notare anche la mia recente ossessione beauty...la half moon manicure ! Questo è stato il mio primo tentativo e devo dire di essere abbastanza soddisfatta del risultato, l'ho creata con lo Chanel Peridot (ricordo che una boccetta nuova sarà uno dei premi per chi si aggiudicherà il mio Giveaway !) e lo smalto rosso di OPI. Che ne pensate di provare anche voi ?.



Green mongolian sheepskin scarf: Carla G
Cardigan: Massimo Rebecchi
Sunnies: Chanel


Green lace dress: Lunatic
Bag: Gucci
Ankle boots: Sommits


Ring: Alcozer & J
Bracelets: Tiffany
Other ring: BVLGARI BZero


Another recent obsession of mine are bib necklaces...I have already bought a few of them...I didn't want to go for a very expensive one, I went for cheap versions and I am even trying to make some of my own, I like to craft, I just wish I had more time to work on all projects that come to my mind !. I have to add that anytime I decide to go for the cheap option I end up buying way too many things so I end up spending a lot of money anyway ;-) !.

Un'altra mia recente ossessione sono le bib necklaces o collane a bavaglio o davantini, ne ho già comprate diverse...non volevo prenderne una molto costosa, per ora ho optato per versioni economiche e sto anche pensando di farne qualcuna da me, mi piace creare, vorrei solo avere più tempo per realizzare tutti i progetti che mi vengono in mente !. Vorrei anche aggiungere che ogni volta che scelgo l'opzione più economica finisco per comprare troppe cose e quindi spendere lo stesso un sacco di soldi ;-) !.


Lace tights: Calzedonia


And here it is, what I think is the best accessory for a woman, a girl, a blogger...a smile ! What do you think ? I think life is already so complicated and it's important to keep ironic, to try not to take ourselves too seriously and to smile as often as we can !.

Ed ecco infine ciò che io considero l'accessorio migliore per una donna, una ragazza, una blogger...un sorriso ! Che ne pensate ? Penso la vita sia già complicata e che sia importante mantenersi ironici, non prendersi troppo sul serio e cercare di sorridere il più spesso possibile !.


Bib necklace: Bijou Brigitte

  5. Hi Vale, I love the outfit. It´s really elegant and leisure at the same time. I also like big necklaces. I have just one. About the smile, it is definitely true but I don´t smile on the pics much as I don´t have very nice teeth. Genetics, what can I say... ;)

  69. Bello questo outfit, il vestito di pizzo è favoloso!! L'altro giorno ero tentata a comprarlo, ne ho visto uno simile da Stradivarius (non so se lo avete nella tua città) però era più una specie di blu ottanio, molto bello. Sei una persona molto positiva, mi piace! Sono d'accordo con te, la vita è già abbastanza dura, bisogna sorridere di più! :)
