Keep calm and...carry on blogging !

keep calm...

Keep calm and carry on is one of my fave quotes, I even have a big framed poster with this famous quote on my entry hall. I have to say this sentence is perfect cause there's much to keep calm now...the weather is so hot yet I have to work for more weeks even tho I wish I could catch a plane and go somewhere exotic !. Add to this that we're changing many things in the flat...we added more rooms and yay, yes, this means a laundry room, a whole room to use as a closet and a bigger and comfier studio room...but to achieve that it takes time, money and a lot of patience and strenght to overcome weeks of dusty rooms and men at work !.
I have a big passion for home decor and home design and the more I spend time on Pinterest, the more I find amazing inspirational pics. Ok, I love bags, shoes and clothes...but I also love well designed furnitures, cozy rooms and...more hangers ! I have so many plans to make things more organized in the house, I will show you ;-).


Keep calm and carry on è una delle mie frasi preferite, ho persino un grande poster incorniciato con questa celebre frase nell'ingresso di casa...devo dire che questo "mantra" si accorda perfettamente con le mie esigenze...devo rimanere calma e sopportare il caldo eccessivo nonostante le ferie lontane quando vorrei solo prendere un aereo e partire ! Aggiungeteci dei grandi cambiamenti nel mio appartamento...abbiamo aggiunto alcune stanze e ciò significa - evviva ! - una lavanderia, una intera stanza da adibire a cabina armadio e uno studio più grande e confortevole...ma, ad oggi, significa tempo, energia, soldi e...sopportare per settimane la polvere, il disordine e gli operai al lavoro !.
Ho una grande passione per la decorazione di interni e l'home design e più tempo trascorro su Pinterest, più trovo foto e ispirazioni. Ok, amo borse, scarpe e vestiti...ma amo anche i mobili, le stanze accoglienti e...avere più appendini ! Ho così tanti progetti per rendere il tutto più organizzato in casa, vi farò vedere ;-).

Black dress for dinner

elegant black dress, coral pumps

After so many colorful and bold printed outfits, let me show you a simple elegant black outfit I picked for a fancy dinner.
I went for a short black dress from Basix II with my Castaner pumps you had already seen.
The dress has sparkly sequins on the top that look like a precious necklace and make it perfect for a special evening. With a similar dress I didn't have to add much to the whole ensemble !.


Dopo tanti outfit colorati e stampati, ecco un semplice outfit nero che ho scelto per una cena elegante. L'abito corto è di Basix II, indossato con le mie pumps di Castaner che avevate già visto.
L'abito ha una serie di ricami sulla scollatura che ricordano una preziosa collana, rendendolo perfetto per un'occasione elegante. Con un abito così non ho dovuto aggiugere molto all'insieme !.

Maybe you will notice that in these pics I am wearing no bag. I had a tiny Fendi clutch, but I would have liked to add something new to the outfit, maybe a coral or a red clutch. I selected four clutches I would love to have...only one out of those is low cost but anyway we can all dream and play: which one would you choose ? I'd like to have your opinion !.

Forse noterete che in queste foto non ho la borsa con me. Ho scelto una piccola clutch di Fendi ma mi sarebbe piaciuto avere qualcosa di nuovo da abbinare, tipo una clutch rossa o color corallo. Ho selezionato quattro borse che amerei avere...solo una tra loro è low cost ma comunque si può sempre sognare e giocare insieme: quale tra queste scegliereste voi ? Mi piacerebbe avere la vostra opinione !.

A colorful summer

Here we are, with a very colorful post...still in holiday mood, for a very colorful summer !
Here I am wearing a printed dress from Eroke and comfy neutral wedges from Cesare Paciotti 4US. Click on each image to enlarge it !.


Eccoci con un post molto colorato...ancora in modalità vacanziera, per un'estate ricca di colori !.
Quì indosso un abito stampato di Eroke e zeppe in corda color carne di Cesare Paciotti 4US. Cliccate sulle immagini per ingrandirle !.

I confess I have decided to bring my large Marc Jacobs tote with me because I had all the things I needed for a day at the beach inside of it...;-)...the bag added even more color to the whole outfit but I enjoyed it because after all it was for daytime and precisely for eating on a restaurant on the beach.

Confesso di aver portato questa grande borsa di Marc Jacobs con me principalmente perché può contenere tutte le cose di cui necessito per una giornata in spiaggia ;-)...la borsa ha aggiunto ulteriore colore all'outfit ma non l'ho trovato eccessivo in quanto si trattava del giorno e, più precisamente, di un pranzo informale sulla spiaggia.

Here's the beach of "Marina del Cantone"...we spent the day there :-)

I love fashion but I also love good food and trying new restaurants is something I enjoy very much !. My love and went to lovely "Lo Scoglio", a restaurant on the sea and I had the most amazing spaghetti with courgettes ever tried in my life. I had to take a picture, also because in that place my beloved Instagram was not working properly !.
Eating well is, just like shopping, one of the best pleasures in life, don't you agree ? ;-).


Amo la moda ma amo anche il buon cibo e provare nuovi ristoranti mi appassiona molto !. Con il mio amore siamo stati a "Lo scoglio", un ristorante delizioso sul mare e io ho mangiato il migliore piatto di spaghetti alle zucchine mai provato in vita mia. Ho dovuto fare una foto, anche perché in quei luoghi il mio adorato Instagram non funzionava !.
Mangiare bene è, insieme allo shopping, uno dei migliori piaceri della vita, siete d'accordo ? ;-).

Tropical print dress

tropical print dress

I keep on showing you my holiday outfits :) and a tropical print dress is really screaming summer holidays, right ?.
This dress is the outcome of one of my online shopping sprees on Asos, Warehouse is the brand and I absolutely love it because it's a mixture of a classic feminine black dress design with a fun and colorful print.
I decided to wear it with my Loriblu yellow and black heels and my Gucci bag.


Continuo a mostrarvi i miei outfit vacanzieri :) e un abito a stampa tropicale fa molto vacanze estive, giusto ?.
Questo vestito è il risultato di una delle mie scorribande di shopping online su Asos, il brand è Warehouse e mi piace molto perché coniuga il design classico e femminile del tubino nero con una stampa divertente e colorata.
L'ho indossato con dei sandali gialli e neri di Loriblu e la borsa di Gucci.

I made an animation as you can see, it's sort of funny, it seems to me I am dancing to some sort of holiday tune ;). It could be because I love to dance, and you ?.
Actually I was thinking the other day about how we are different when we're in motion in comparison to pictures. I am the kind of person that has a lot of expressions in her face and also tends to smile and even blush a lot - I cannot hide my emotions very well, sometimes it can be annoying but to be sincere I am proud of it :-).


Ho fatto una piccola animazione, come potete vedere, è abbastanza buffa, sembra che io stia ballando un qualche motivetto estivo ;). Potrebbe anche essere perché mi piace ballare e a voi ?.
Recentemente stavo proprio pensando a quanta differenza ci sia tra l'aspetto di una persona in movimento in confronto alle fotografie. Io sono molto espressiva, sorrido, arrossisco spesso e in generale ammetto di non essere brava a nascondere le emozioni, a volte può essere fastidioso ma alla fine ne sono orgogliosa :-).

In these pics you can see me wearing two new entries in my bijoux collection, I bought them both during my vacation: a green Sodini statement necklace and an Aurélie Biedermann-style bracelet. Remmember you can click on each pic to enlarge it !.

In queste foto potete vedere due new entries tra i miei bijoux: una collana molto particolare nei toni del verde e azzurro di Sodini e un braccialetto in stile Aurélie Biedermann. Ricordate che potete cliccare sulle foto per ingrandirle !.

50s style floral dress

Vintage style floral dress, 50s style dress, Fashion and Cookies, fashion blogger

This 50s style floral dress is one of my fave pieces of clothing I have bought for this season. It's feminine, fresh, colorful and has a vintage allure :). I love the built in belt and I thought about matching it with my Ash sandals you had already seen in another post. I am gonna try it also with wedges, what kind of shoes would you wear it with ?.

Questo abito a fiori anni '50 è uno dei miei abiti preferiti comprati questa stagione. E' femminile, fresco, colorato e ha un delizioso tocco vintage :). Mi piace la cintura "incorporata" e ho pensato di abbinarlo ai miei sandali verdi di Ash che vi avevo già mostrato. Lo proverò anche con delle zeppe, voi con quale tipo di scarpe lo indossereste ?.
