Color block in the Mist


Having a walk in a sunny afternoon is surely one of the things I like the most...so you can imagine my surprise when it went all foggy around me that you could barely see anything ! Well, it wasn't hard to see me even in the Mist, since I had chosen a color block outfit ;-).

Passeggiare in un bel pomeriggio soleggiato è una delle attività che preferisco...potete quindi immaginare la mia sorpresa quando è arrivata una fitta nebbia e la visibilità era ridottissima ! Beh, non era difficile vedere me neanche nella nebbia, grazie all'outfit color block che avevo scelto ;-)




Dress: Diane Von Furstenberg
Turtleneck: Zara
Blue tights: Calzedonia
Sunnies: Tom Ford
Bag: Balenciaga City "Mini Giant"
Ankle boots: Icone

You can find most of this stuff at Macys with these exclusive promo codes!



I opted for colored tights (Calzedonia) with this lovely Diane Von Furstenberg dress, the color of the dress is a sort of lime green and it wasn't very easy to match with another color. I could have gone for black tights and pull but I thought a cobalt blue match would be more original and fun :-) and I had this nice Zara turtleneck that was perfect with the tights !. My beloved blue Balenciaga and the Icone ankle boots you had already seen previously completed the "fog-proof" look.
Mind you that my hair had a lot of volume and with all this humid weather they lost it...I am always very hair concerned, I have tons of products at home to prevent them from going frizzy with humid seaside weather, do you also hate it or is it just me that hates it that much ?.


Ho optato per calze colorate di Calzedonia con questo adorabile abito di Diane Von Furstenberg dal colore verde lime, non facilmente abbinabile ad altri colori. Avrei potuto scegliere calze e pull neri ma ho pensato che un abbinamento con il blu cobalto sarebbe stato più originale e divertente :-) e poi avevo giusto questa maglia a collo alto di Zara, perfetta per l'occasione !. La mia adorata Balenciaga blu e gli stivaletti bicolore di Icone che avevate già visto in altre foto hanno completato il look "a prova di nebbia" :-).
La mia preoccupazione pricipale era per i capelli, con l'umidità perdono volume e si increspano, ho un sacco di prodotti a casa per prevenire l'effetto crespo tipico dei posti di mare, lo odio troppo e voi ?.




Bib necklace: Camomilla
Nail polish: OPI - Yodel me on my cell
Gold ring: BVLGARI BZero
Bracelets: Tiffany and Fope
Golden watch: Casio


Talking about color block, I have to share with you something I saw in a local shop and was so tempted to get...a wonderful Marc Jacobs bag, this would match this outfit even better than my Balenciaga ! I am getting more and more bagaholic, I have to calm myself a bit, so I tried to convince myself I didn't need this bag in my life...but I am a very passionate girl and the more I think about this bag the more I feel I want it ! It's the Marc Jacobs' "Bob's Memphis Trip" satchel in color block (you can see two versions here...which one do you prefer ?). I love them both !. Who knows, maybe soon or later it will be added to my collection, for now it's officially on my wish list !.

Parlando del trend color block, devo condividere con voi una borsa che non riesco a togliermi dalla testa e che credo sarebbe stata ancora meglio con questo outfit...sto diventando sempre più fissata con le borse, mi devo dare una calmata, ho continuato a ripetermi che non ho bisogno anche di questa borsa nella mia vita ma più ci penso più la voglio ! Si tratta della Marc Jacobs "Bob's Memphis Trip" nelle doppie versioni di color block...quale preferite ? A me piacciono entrambe ! Non so se prima o poi riuscirò ad averla ma l'ho inserita ufficialmente nella mia wish-list ;-).
