Dress like a lady: Balenciaga dress

Balenciaga dress

After two outfits with pants, I felt like dressing "like a lady" wearing this black and white Balenciaga dress and, finally, since Spring seems to be here finally, I took tights off !.
My bare legs are so pale, I gotta get used to that ! Otherwise I should follow Kate Middleton's trend, she put nude pantyhoses back into the spotlight ;).
The past weekend has been filled with so much shopping for me, including shopping for bikinis. I am lucky enough to live by the seaside but of course I work during the week so my chances to go to the beach are left to weekends !. Not that I care about getting a tan that much, since I use a lot of sunscreen protection and I end up having just a bit of tan at the end of summer. What about you ?.


Dopo un paio di outfits con i pantaloni, mi è venuta voglia di vestirmi "da signora" e ne ho approfittato per indossare questo abito di Balenciaga bianco e nero, finalmente senza le calze, visto che la Primavera sembra ufficialmente arrivata !.
Le mie gambe nude sono molto pallide, mi ci devo riabituare, a meno che non voglia seguire Kate Middleton che ha rimesso in gioco le calze color carne ;).
Il weekend appena trascorso è stato ricco di shopping per me, ho comprato anche un paio di bikini per il mare. Ho la fortuna di vivere sul mare ma, ovviamente, lavorando durante la settimana mi resta il weekend per andare in spiaggia !. Non che io sia ossessionata dall'abbronzatura, uso sempre molta protezione e non divento arrivo mai alla fine dell'estate troppo abbronzata. Che mi dite di voi ?.

The dress is quite "serious" and I have spiced it up with my new pumps from Loriblu, love the neon pink details and heels, and with my beloved Marc Jacobs bag you had seen other times before, also with totally pink shoes.
I was sporting a green nail polish from China Glaze, the name is "Four leaf clover", I like thir shiny green shade ! You can see the details below.


Essendo l'abito abbastanza "serioso", l'ho sdrammatizzato con le mie nuove scarpe di Loriblu, mi piace il dettaglio neon sulla punta e nel tacco, e la mia adorata borsa di Marc Jacobs che avete già visto altre volte, anche abbinata a scarpe tutte rosa.
Portavo uno smalto verde di China Glaze, il nome è "Four leaf clover", mi piace questo tono di verde brillante ! Potete vedere i dettagli nella foto successiva.

Leather, fringes and studs

Peuterey jacket, leather, fringes and studs

This is the time of the year when I wear pants more often. Weather started to get warmer and what's better than a pair of jeans to go out and have a walk, feeling comfy and "rock" at the same time ? Not to mention that legs are still very pale to look good with a skirt without tights, so it's really time to rock on those pants, especially if you mix leather, fringes and studs ;-).
I feel that a leather jacket worn with denim pants is something classic that you can't go wrong with, and these jeans from Blumarine have studs and swarovski elements, same as the Blumarine belt, so they have something that makes them a little bit "special".


Questo è il periodo dell'anno in cui indosso più spesso i pantaloni. L'aria ha finalmente iniziato a scaldarsi e cosa c'è di meglio di un paio di jeans per uscire a camminare, sentendosi comode e "rock" allo stesso tempo ? Senza aggiungere che le gambe sono ancora molto bianche per stare bene con una gonna senza calze, così è veramente il momento di sfoggiare i pantaloni, specialmente se si possono mischiare pelle, frange e borchie ;-).
Credo che una giacca di pelle indossata insieme ai jeans sia uno di quegli abbinamenti classici con i quali è difficile sbagliare, poi questi jeans di Blumarine hanno delle applicazioni lateriali di borchie e swarovski, uguali alla cintura che è sempre di Blumarine, che li rendono un po' "speciali".

I have decided to wear these jeans with a fringed blouse from Zara and a "rock style" necklace. This leather jacket is one of my latest "big" purchases...I fell in love with its quality and design and decided to go for it even tho I already own other black leather jackets bought recently. I have told myself I will wear it for many years to come so it was worth "investing" in such an item of clothing. It's from Peuterey, the quality of this brand goes higher and higher in my opinion !.

Ho deciso di abbinare questi jeans ad una blusa con le frange di Zara e ad una collana molto "rock style". Questa giacca di pelle è uno dei miei ultimi acquisti "importanti"...mi sono innamorata della qualità del pellame e del design e ho deciso di prenderla sebbene io avessi già altre giacche di pelle nera comprate di recente. Mi sono detta che la indosserò ancora per molto tempo a venire e che valeva la pena di "investire" in un capo del genere. E' di Peuterey, la qualità delle giacche di questo brand cresce sempre più, secondo me !.

My outfit pics are often taken by the sea, I adore the sea and the seaside in all seasons of the year. The only thing that annoys me is the wind that seems to always be there for me, ruffling my hair so much, there's no hairspray solution for this !.
One of the highlights of my week has been finding a shop that sells China Glaze nail polish in my town...I bought three nail polish (if you follow me on Instagram you saw them already) and in these pics I am sporting the color "Thataway", a sort of peachy orange color I absolutely love ! I am obsessed with orangey nail polish and lipstick lately. China Glaze seems to be a great brand, the quality is high the price is fair, so now I am very tempted to buy some more nail polish ! What is your fave nail polish brand ? I am curious to know !.


Le foto dei miei outfit sono spesso scattate vicino al mare, io adoro il mare e la spiaggia in tutte le stagioni. L'unica cosa che mi infastidisce è il vento che sembra esserci sempre e che rende i miei capelli veramente ribelli, non c'è lacca che tenga !.
Una delle scoperte più belle di questa settimana, per me, è stato trovare un rivenditore di smalti China Glaze dalle mie parti...ne ho comprati tre (chi mi segue su Instagram li ha già visti) e in queste foto porto il colore "Thataway", un color pesca aranciato che adoro letteralmente ! Ultimamente sono ossessionata dagli smalti e dai rossetti aranciati. China Glaze sembra una ottima marca, la qualità è alta e i prezzi sono ragionevoli, per cui ora sono molto tentata di comprarne altri !. Voi avete una marca di smalti preferita ? Sono curiosa di saperlo !.

Bird print shirt


Bird print is one of the fashion trends this year and it's even perfect as a symbol of Spring, so here it is, a simple outfit with this cute Zara bird print shirt and a brand new pair of denims from Liu Jo.

La stampa con uccelli è uno dei trend moda di quest'anno ed è perfetta quale simbolo primaverile, allora ecco un outfit semplice incentrato su questa carinissima camicia di Zara a stampa "volatile" e un nuovo paio di jeans di Liu Jo.



Shirt: Zara
Bag: No brand
Denim pants: Liu Jo


Bi-color pumps are from Fabi and I just love the stiletto heels, so feminine ! I have anything in my shoe closet now...sneakers, loafers, chuncky heels, stilettos, platform and non-platform shoes...I am happy about it because I feel like changing style so often !.
The bag is a no brand bag I bought in a small shop cause I liked the aqua color so much and I thought it was cute !.
Leaves bracelet is from Accessorize and the bangle is from Pull & Bear. I am sporting my new Michael Kors rose gold watch, I know it's gonna be difficult avoiding to wear it from now on !.


Le scarpe bi-colore sono di Fabi e amo il loro tacco a spillo, così femminile ! Ho di tutto nella mia scarpiera adesso...sneakers, mocassini, tacchi grossi, tacchi a spillo, scarpe con o senza plateau...e ne sono felice perché posso cambiare spesso stile !.
La borsa è senza marca e l'ho notata in un negozietto per via del colore, un verde acqua, mi è sembrata molto carina !.
Il bracciale con le foglie è di Accessorize e il bangle semplice è di Pull & Bear. Inoltre, indosso il mio nuovo orologio Michael Kors color oro rosa dal quale sarà ormai difficile separarsi !.

I went to the movies to watch "Street Dance 2" and the movie itself is so worth watching especially thanks to lead carachter Eva, played by Sofia Boutella, she is such an amazing dancer ! Did you know her already ? She is so talented, she can dance really anything and her moves are breathtaking ! Usually when I like something or someone from a movie so much that I didn't know much about before, I spend a couple of hours on Google later, LOL...she is an algerian french born dancer, mainly hip hop and street style, she worked with Madonna, she did some modeling and also starred in a Nike campaign. Here's a few images of Sofia for you !.

Sono stata al cinema a vedere "Street Dance 2" ed il film merita di essere visto specialmente per la protagonista femminile, Eva, interpretata dalla ballerina Sofia Boutella, è davvero incredibilmente brava ! La conoscevate già ? Ha tantissimo talento, può ballare diversi generi musicali lasciando senza fiato per la sua bravura ! Di solito, quando torno dal cinema e resto colpita da qualcosa, faccio un po' di ricerche online, su Google :-)...è una ballerina francese di origini algerine, balla specialmente hip hop e street style, ha lavorato con Madonna, ha fatto anche la modella ed è stata tra le protagoniste di una campagna pubblicitaria della Nike. Eccovi qualche immagine di Sofia !.

Sofia Boutella starred in Michael Jackson's video for "Hollywood tonight", released in 2011. I didn't notice this cause I have always been a Michael Jackson fan but after his death I didn't much listen to "new" things, I preferred to stick with his classic songs. I have to say Sofia is great also in this video and I hope to see her soon in other movies or productions !.

Sofia Boutella è stata la protagonista del video di "Hollywood Tonight", video postumo di Michael Jackson, uscito nel 2011. Non ci avevo fatto caso perché sono sempre stata una fan di Michael ma dopo la sua morte non ho seguito le canzoni "nuove", preferendo ascoltare i suoi pezzi classici. Devo dire che Sofia è molto brava anche in questo video e spero di vederla presto in altre produzioni !.

Chiffon motorcycle jacket

Sheinside motorcycle jacket

What's better than a cloudy, windy day for a walk on the seaside wearing biker boots and a chiffon galaxy print motorcycle jacket ?.
I got this one from Sheinside, a cool clothing and accessories webstore and I have to admit I love it ! I am gonna use it a lot, also with denim pants.
The Universe print felt perfect with the aqua color of this long, asymmetrical skirt from Zara, that added a touch of romance to a "rock" outfit. I promise this is the last asymmetrical skirt in my collection...oh, wait...actually I have another couple of them, LOL !. Yes, I am slightly obsessed !.
Please, click on each picture to enlarge it, I have been asked to show larger pics but I think this size is good for the blog layout plus you get a bigger pic if you click on it and it doesn't slow down the loading of the page !.


Cosa c'è di meglio in una giornata nuvolosa e ventosa che andare in riva al mare e fare una passeggiata in biker boots e chiodo di chiffon a stampa galassia ?.
Ho preso questa giacchina modello "chiodo" da Sheinside, un webstore molto fornito e devo dire che ne sono entusiasta ! Credo la sfrutterò molto, anche con i jeans. La stampa "universo" mi sembrava perfetta per abbinarla al color turchese chiaro di questa gonna lunga e asimmetrica di Zara, che ha aggiunto un tocco romantico ad un outfit dall'allure rock. Prometto che questa sarà l'ultima gonna asimmetrica a comparire nei miei post di outfit...oh, aspettate, veramente, ne avrei un altro paio da mostrarvi, LOL ! Sì, sono leggermente ossessionata !.
Per favore, cliccate su ogni foto per ingrandirla, mi era stato chiesto di poterle vedere più grandi ma questa dimensione va bene con il layout del blog e oltretutto si possono vedere ingrandite cliccandoci sopra, evitando così di rallentare il caricamento del blog !.

A studded necklace from Asos and my Diesel leather tote, bought when this color wasn't yet so trendy (you had seen it already here), completed the outfit.
I am a bit disappointed with this weather, it's still pretty cold compared to italian standards and I need some warm sun to shine on me, who said we don't have mid seasons anymore ?!.


Una collana borchiata di Asos e la mia borsa in pelle Diesel, comprata quando questo colore non era ancora così trendy (l'avevate già vista in questo post), hanno completato l'outfit.
Sono un po' delusa dal tempo, fa ancora freddo per gli standard italiani e ho bisogno che un po' di sole mi scaldi, chi aveva detto che non esistevano più le mezze stagioni ?!.
