Like a lemon

Green and yellow outfit, Marc Jacobs tote

I am so happy to have a few days off from work ! I was really needing it ! I am in the mood for relaxing and enjoying myself, and it's also a perfect timing for a colorful and casual outfit that reminds me of a lemon !. I mixed yellow and green, indeed. Also, it shows that I can't wait to spend a few days on the Amalfi coast, reign of lemon trees, sun and sea !. The only nightmare for me is packing...I would just bring my closet with me and picking up clothes, bags and shoes is always something I don't look forward to !.

Sono così contenta di avere qualche giorno di ferie ! Ne avevo proprio bisogno ! Sono dell'umore giusto per rilassarmi e divertirmi ed è anche il momento perfetto per un outfit molto colorato e casual che mi ricorda i colori del limone ! Infatti, ho mixato giallo e verde, segno anche di quanto io sia impaziente di trascorrere qualche giorno sulla costiera amalfitana, regno degli alberi di limone, del sole e del mare !. L'unico incubo per me è preparare la valigia...mi porterei dietro tutto e dover scegliere abiti, scarpe e borse è sempre qualcosa che cerco di rimandare il più possibile !.

I was wearing a floral Balenciaga T's t-shirt and paired it with green pants from Stradivarius. Shoes were very comfy, yellow sneakers from Ash, similar to leather ones I have in black.
I matched everything with Marc Jacobs "Love Bird" leather tote, that surely doesn't go unnoticed !. I can fit anything in this bag and I love the padlock and mini studs details on the handles and sides - when I am gonna get tired of it I know I will use it as a travel bag and will do an excellent job !.


Ho indossato una t-shirt a stampa floreale di Balenciaga T's, abbinata a pantaloni verdi presi da Stradivarius. Le scarpe sono molto comode, sneakers gialle di Ash, simili a quelle che ho in pelle nera.
Ho scelto di indossare una tote molto spaziosa e colorata, la "Love Bird" in pelle di Marc Jacobs che sicuramente non passa inosservata !. In questa borsa entra veramente di tutto e mi piacciono i dettagli del lucchetto e le mini borchie sui manici e sui lati - quando me ne sarò stancata la riciclerò come borsa da viaggio e so che farà un ottimo lavoro !.

Tight floral dress

tight floral dress, Fornarina shoes, Marc Jacobs bag


Sometimes it happens to find a dress that looks like it's worth much ore than the actual price - I think it's the case with this tight floral dress I bought at H&M. I am in love with it, the cut, the print, the fabric !.
Such a dress is perfect to spend an evening outside now that Summer is officially here ! I am still working during the week and I am devoting much of my free time to going out and chilling on the beach, of course without neglecting my blog too much...A blog needs to be cared for and social life is important, too ! Finding a balance for them both is sometimes a blogger's challenge ;-)


A volte capita di trovare un abito che sembra valere molto di più del prezzo pagato, è il caso di questo abitino stretto a stampa floreale di H&M ! Lo adoro, il taglio, la vestibilità, i colori, la stoffa !.
Un capo del genere è perfetto per trascorrere una serata fuori, ora che l'estate è arrivata ufficialmente ! Sto ancora lavorando durante la settimana e sto dedicando gran parte del mio tempo libero alle uscite e al relax in spiaggia, senza trascurare troppo il blog, che ha sicuramente bisogno di attenzioni così come la vita sociale ! Bilanciare le due cose è, a volte, una sfida ;-)

I accessorized the dress with a necklace I had already showed you a while ago and decided to wear my Fornarina pumps, they're incredibly comfortable as well as very cute with this lace effect and coral color. I added even more color with the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag !.

Ho accessoriato l'abito con una collana che avevate già visto e ho deciso di abbinare queste open toes di Fornarina, sono comodissime e anche molto carine con un effetto pizzo e color corallo. Ho aggiunto ancora più colore con la borsa di Marc by Marc Jacobs !.

Since I was going to have a busy evening and night (dinner, movies, going out and going back home very late), I decided to bring a jacket with me, a perfect excuse to wear my new motorcycle studded linen jacket from Zara !. I saw it at Zara and had to buy it - they also had it in mint color, but I opted for a bolder color.
We went to see "Rock of Ages", which simply rocked ! I am a musical lover and I loved the music featured in the movie. Have you seen it ?. I love to stay outside when it's summer but I can't renounce to going to the movies, I love it too much !.


Siccome mi aspettavo di fare tardi (cena, cinema e poi uscita, tornando a casa molto tardi) ho deciso di portare con me anche una giacca, una scusa perfetta per indossare il mio chiodo di lino borchiato di Zara ! L'avevo visto in negozio e me ne ero innamorata all'istante - l'avevano anche in menta ma ho optato per un colore più vivace.
Siamo andati a vedere "Rock of Ages", veramente un bel film ! Sono un'amante dei musical e la musica usata nel film mi piace molto. Lo avete visto ?. Adoro stare all'aria aperta in estate ma non posso rinunciare ad andare al cinema, alcune passioni durano per tutto l'anno !.

Fifty shades of blue

H&M blouse, Cesare Paciotti sandals, blue outfit


When you're lucky enough to live by the sea, just half an hour of walk at the sunset can help you relax after a long day at work. Sea can be a great inspiration, even for an outfit...maybe that's why I am wearing fifty shades of blue ! ;-).
In these pics I am wearing basic skinny jeans from Tally Weijl with a Missoni print inspired H&M top. I matched them with my beloved Balenciaga City bag and one of my latest shoes purchases at Cesare Paciotti showroom.


Quando si è così fortunati da vivere vicino al mare, basta una mezz'ora di passeggiata al tramonto sulla spiaggia per rilassarsi dopo una lunga giornata di lavoro. Il mare diventa una fonte di ispirazione, anche per un outfit...forse ecco perché sto indossando cinquanta sfumature di blu ! ;-).
In queste indosso jeans skinny di Tally Weijl con una blusa di H&M con stampa stile Missoni. Li ho abbinati alla mia adorata Balenciaga City e ad uno dei miei ultimi acquisti di scarpe fatto allo showroom Cesare Paciotti.

Fifty shades of blue outfit


I have made an inspirational set above, hope you like it !. The necklace I am wearing is made of a tiny net filled with crystals. This outfit is pretty low cost on the clothes side and also very easy and quick, perfect for when I don't have much time to dress up...I am often in a hurry beause luckily days seem to last for longer now and at eight o'clock pm, after a day in the office, we can pretend we are on holidays in an exotic place and relax having a drink on the beach ! ;-).

Ho creato un set come ispirazione sopra, spero vi piaccia ! La collana che indosso è fatta di rete riempita di piccoli cristalli.
Questo outfit è low cost per quanto riguarda i vestiti e anche molto veloce e facile, perfetto per quando non si ha tanto tempo per prepararsi...spesso vado di fretta perché adesso le giornate si sono allungate e alle otto di sera, dopo il lavoro in ufficio, si può fingere di essere in vacanza in un luogo esotico e rilassarsi con un drink sulla spiaggia ! ;-).

The more I look at my latest posts, the more I find out they are so colorful...if I think about the past, when I used to wear a lot of black, there's such a difference ! I still think black is such an elegant option but I am enjoying colors way too much to stop now !.
In the next months I will be very busy organizing my wardrobe because we're adding a room for clothes only in my flat...I keep finding such great inspiration on Pinterest, my Home folder is full with closets pics ! It's surely gonna be a rainbow closet, with many shades of blue and not blue only !.


Più riguardo i miei ultimi post, più mi accorgo che sono molto colorati...se penso al passato, quando ero solita indossare molto nero, c'è una bella differenza ! Penso ancora che il nero sia sempre un'opzione elegante ma mi sto divertendo troppo ad indossare i colori per fermarmi adesso !.
Nei prossimi mesi sarò molto occupata ad organizzare il mio guardaroba perché stiamo aggiungendo una stanza solo per gli abiti nell'appartamento...continuo a trovare splendide ispirazioni su Pinterest, la mia cartella "Home" è piena di foto di cabine armadio e guardaroba ! Sicuramente sarà un guardaroba arcobaleno, con molte sfumature di blu e non solo !.

Maxi tee or mini dress ?

oasap striped dress, maxi tee


I think most of you have been doubtful, at least once in your life, whether an item of clothing in your closet would be considered as a maxi tee or mini dress !? Yes, I am talking about that precise item of clothing that you can wear and style in both ways 'cause it's long enough to be a dress and short enough to be a t-shirt !.
I like such kind of clothes cause they have "a double life", I can change look by simply wearing them with leggings or skinny jeans underneath or by wearing them with bare legs and heels. Do you own something like this and what do you prefer ?.


Credo che la maggior parte di voi, almeno una volta nella vita, si sia trovata di fronte a questo importante dubbio: si tratta di una maxi t-shirt o di un mini vestito ? Sì, sto parlando di un preciso capo di abbigliamento che si può indossare in entrambi i modi, in quanto lungo abbastanza da essere un abito, corto abbastanza da poter ancora essere una maglia !.
Personalmente amo questo tipo di indumenti perché hanno una doppia vita, posso cambiarli semplicemente indossandoli con leggings o skinny pants oppure con le gambe nude e tacchi alti. Avete anche voi qualcosa del genere e come preferite indossarlo ?.

This time I have decided to consider this lovely striped dress from Oasap as a maxi t-shirt, wearing it with black skinny pants from Tally Weijl.
The dress is a One Size, quite large for me so I put my waistline in evidence by using a sash belt, I often do this with large dresses/maxi t-shirts.
My Jeffrey Campbell Darian wedges (bought in New York and always great) and Balenciaga Work completed the look, together with a studded necklace from Pull and Bear.


Questa volta ho deciso di considerare questo delizioso abito a righe di Oasap come una maxi maglia, indossandolo insieme a pantaloni skinny neri di Tally Weijl.
L'abito a righe è una taglia unica, abbastanza larga per me, per cui ho evidenziato il punto vita con una fusciacca in pelle, lo faccio spesso con abiti larghi o maxi tees.
Le mie zeppe di Jeffrey Campbell modello Darian (prese a New York e sempre attuali) e la Balenciaga Work hanno completato il look, insieme ad una collana con borchie di Pull and Bear.

I was lucky enough to have a tank top the same green color in my closet - thank you Zara !. I have a special thing with open shoulder t-shirts, love them...and I will love them more once I will finally be a bit tanned ! I am dreaming about holidays but I have to wait for them, still !.

Sono stata così fortunata dal trovare una canotta dello stesso verde della maglia nel mio armadio - grazie Zara !. Ho un'attrazione particolare per le maglie asimmetriche o dalle spalle scoperte, le amo...e mi piaceranno anche di più con un po' di abbronzatura ! Sto sognando le vacanze ma per quelle c'è ancora tempo !.

Fornarina circle skirt

fornarina circle skirt


I love circle skirts. Their romantic and "made for good girls" allure. I think they are very feminine because they put our waist in evidence and also very easy to wear - they are perfect with pumps but also with flats, and even though they send us back to 50s and to vintage style, with a few accessories they can be perfect also for a modern outfit !.

Amo le gonne a ruota. La loro aria romantica e "stile brava ragazza". Credo che siano molto femminili in quanto esaltano il punto vita e siano anche molto facili da indossare - sono perfette sia con i tacchi alti che con le ballerine e sebbene rimandino agli anni '50 e ad un tipo di abbigliamento vintage, con pochi accessori possono rivelarsi particolarmente adatte anche ad un outfit moderno !.

A tiny moodboard I made for this trend ;), all the pumps are from Fornarina

In these pics I am wearing a poodle skirt from Fornarina - they always have something 50s or pin-up inspired in their collection ! I fell in love with the floral print and I bought this skirt in something like 10 seconds !. I spiced it up with a Zara studded top and a Zara hot pink necklace. You had already previously seen the Loriblu pumps, instead this was the first time using my neon Zara clutch - stylish but a bit small for a control freak like me !.

In queste foto indosso una gonna a ruota di Fornarina - sembra che abbiano sempre qualcosa di ispirato agli anni '50 e allo stile pin-up nelle loro collezioni ! Mi sono innamorata della stampa a fiori e ho comprato questa gonna in dieci secondi esatti !. Ho dato un tocco moderno con un top borchiato di Zara e una collana rosa neon sempre di Zara. Avevate già visto le pumps di Loriblu, invece era la prima volta che indossavo la clutch neon di Zara - bella ma un po' piccola per una maniaca del controllo come me !.

Bershka sleeveless jacket

fornarina circle skirt


I have added a sleeveless denim jacket In had bought at Bershka. I think a good rule when you are wearing a circle skirt is don't wear anything that covers up the waist, so short jackets or vests can be good.
My Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses added a vintage touch to this look.
What do you think about circle skirts ? Have you also got at least one circle skirt in your closet ?.


Ho aggiunto un giubbino di jeans smanicato preso da Bershka. Credo che una buona regola quando si indossa una gonna a ruota sia non indossare qualcosa che vada a coprire il punto vita, quindi sì alle giacche e ai gilet corti.
I miei occhiali Marc by Marc Jacobs un po' retro hanno completato questo look di ispirazione anni '50.
Cosa ne pensate di questo tipo di gonne ? Ne avete anche voi almeno una nell'armadio ?.
