The same day when I bought my red skirt ( I shared it two posts ago), a blouse in the same colour went home with me : this is going to be my red summer!!

The blouse has a funny shape which allows to style  the piece differently :

With a  knot at the middle  front 

Two knots on the two sides

Or just a one side knot ...

Not a big difference anyway.
Plus, honesty I have to admit that I  usually wear the blouse with no knots at all. 
It's funny, but  when you are at the shop, details seem to be an extra reason for purchasing!

 I also added  red accessories to my outfit : lucky red crowns
( no, I don't believe in   combinations between objects and what happens in real life . Do you? )

The other bracelet has a  coin with a religious symbol ( found in a flea market ) tied up in a bow to a bangle .
 Finally I wore my floral ring ( both already worn in many recent posts )

I matched my bracelets to a church with two big statues of saints  ...  (Yes,  I really did!! )
very often  the photos of the surroundings that I include in my posts are related  to what I am talking about ( Sometimes in a very hidden way)

Do you have a favourite colour this summer?

Three good reasons

Hi! I am some days late with the post, but I have at least three good reasons for that! 

First, I enjoyed some days in the tiny village not far away from the coast
  where I often go when I need rest 

To be precise, when I say rest ... I mean silence, quiet living and doing really nothing!
As you can guess from the photos...this is the right place for that!!

The second reason for my late posting is that ... when I go there I take only necessary stuff! 

A few jewels,very few accessories, very simple clothes. I have nothing which makes a post interesting! 

And finally, here comes the third reason : the salt water of the nearby sea,sun and the heat,
 the  ( pleasant) laziness of my days there...have ( bad ) effects on my look! 

In a word, it took me time get some good photos! 

But holidays are holidays, right??   :-)
I only wonder ...
Am I the only one who  prefer spending summer, torrid days away from the crazy world ??

Woman in red

It had to happen sooner or later: last week I decided that red was not so bad after all...
( nothing against the colour,  but I haven't  been wearing it often in my life)

So, why not give it an ( exaggerate ) try??

Not an ordinary red skirt,  but a long, wide, asymmetric one which surely doesn't go unnoticed! 

Big flowers as earrings in a pale shade of yellow
( recently bought )

L'Autre Chose 
And neutral colour low heel sandals.

It was a hot morning in the city 

and I was looking for some corner in the  shade ...

Which didn't turned out to be a good idea for having good quality photos...

Do you happen to wear an extraordinarily exaggerate piece of clothing now and then?

Wise girl

Last time, my very affectionate friend Flo, commenting on my post said that she didn't feel steady on high heels anymore 

Reflecting on her words I had to admit that I have been sharing  the same feeling recently...

A quickly glance into my closet ( which really includes everything)
Provided a solution that I considered a compromise between ( beloved ) high heels and ( cute) flat shoes ...

A pair of platform sandals! ( old, already posted last year)

Wise girls have to accept compromises, right? 
Do you feel the same or have different solutions? 

Platform shoes and long dresses seem to work well .
Here the summer heat  has arrived in advance this year and we are enjoying ( suffering ) temperatures over 30 degrees.
Hence I made up my mind for  white colour ...

... and coral jewelry.

( A touch of ochre colour for my bronze bag today).
I  am surely feeling more comfortable on platforms but ... am I steadier too??
I will tell you. 
In the meantime ...

... Have a smiling week!

On heels again ...

Wonderful weekend for me. I am just back from the seaside where I I have been sunbathing on the beach!  
When back at home, I immediately changed my  clothes and went out for the photos. 
Unfortunately I am not very good at planning and didn't have any stored photos at handy! 

Luckily, in my small city there are nice places which provide good backdrops! 

The only problem is represented by cobblestones that are not the best if you are wearing heels! 

Never mind!  I have been posting flats very often recently ...
 High heels remain my very favourites shoes so, I decided to take the risk!!

Silk black and white shirt 

And a big velvet heart decorated with coral beads as a necklace

A last photo and then I can go safely home! 
( when a comfortable sofa is waiting for me )

Have a joyful, high heel week!

Some different shopping

Are you wondering if I left the Eternal City without doing a bit of shopping? 
Well, the answer is no ...
But you will probably be surprised to read what my purchases  were! 

  Here you see St. Peter cathedral in Vaticano.
I went there because I had in mind a very special kind of shopping
( even though the beauty of the place would have deserved a visit in any case)

I bought a Sacred Heart ...

... And a small gypsum angel!!

Well, many of you know that I like making my jewelry 

( These coral earrings are the ones which I had prepared for my journey to Rome )

At the moment I am trying something like the DG 2014 jewelry collection...

Of course I am not sure at all about what is going out of my Sacred Heart and my small  gypsum angel, but I can predict...a lot of fun!!
( I always have fun when making my stuff )

Finally, talking about jewelry, this is what my husband bought me.

The silver ring  ( Gerardo Sacco ) is part of a set  of 12 , called " The Months" .
In each one, the face of a woman has been matched to a fruit or an element which represents the  month ( the golden part )
Mine is November and it   reproduces the pomegranate fruit. 

Here it is how it looks on my hand.
It will remind me my Roman holiday...
