Raincoat and ... a new trend! ( but not sure)

I bought this raincoat at a  very reduced price because its belt was missing. 
It didn' t represent a big problem to me since I own many...

I found one in the bottom of my closet which is like the inside part of my bag! 
( it's something that always surprises me when I find the exact thing I need and I didn't remember to have! ) 
What a pity it is not well visible in the photo!

The day before yesterday  we had the perfect weather for wearing a raincoat 


Being a key piece for spring , you can see many on the pages of  magazines.
Do you prefer a classic piece  in a neutral tone or have you got  one in a different and unusual style ? 

Nothing special for me underneath.  I matched black and blue.
Old rules say no to the combination  and many people find it is not a good one, but I like it.
( besides, if Armani uses it so often...why shouldn't I??? )


Blue and yellow necklace


Copper earrings with blue gemstones 

Have you  noticed?  I made a not matching pair this time! 

Why not?  It could become a new trend before long ...
You can never know!

Casual outfit


What do you mean when think of a casual outfit? 


My idea of casual is a pair of blue jeans ...

I am not very fond  of denim ( on me ) but since my closet is a very democratic place
( probably due to the fact that I am a shopping addict ),   
you can see some denim  in it.

I Blues

Next to  many other pieces  of course !
I matched denim to a white shirt with blue lace details. 
White seems to balance the casual look and make the outfit more my taste ...

 I decided for an extra touch of  white : my white OBag.
With mild temperatures it too terribly needed a spring outfit!  :-)
So I fixed  rope handles and bought a snake printed dress ...

Also my jewelry had light colour tones.


There were a very strong light around and smiling people...

Relaxed look today and not in the mood of hairstyling  ...

...Simple but genius! A  great step ahead for (wo)mankind...

How to tie a scarf

 I happen to get some inspiring ideas from other blogs about colour combinations 
or how to style clothes 

And so, today I want to share a way to wear a long  scarf
( which a shop assistant  taught  me )

In the case you need an extra idea!

To make it clear I sketched how to tie...

Underneath the scarf ( so expertly tied! ), I wore my last made-by-myself  necklace

Which I prepared out of  spring colours beads.

On Sunday I visited a monastery and shrine  in Pianezza. 
It is not an ancient buildings  but was built  on the ruins of the previous one
which was built in 1647.

I thought the place would have been a good background.
It was a clear day, with mild temperatures. 

And, talking about mild temperatures, 
It's time for socks here ... I have already taken mine out!

Derby shoes

I always wear high heels but have recently seen many derby shoes on fashion  magazines. 
They had been matched to skirts and created beautiful outfits.
I decided for  trying.

Max Mara

I found this pair and immediately decided they had to be mine ... 

I matched them to my  asymmetric  skirt and a blue sweater with bows for a modern look.

In my opinion my modern look needed a contrasting background ...  So I chose an old and tiny shop where they sell antique pictures.
Taking photos for the blog is a notable matter, after all!! 

No necklace today but a silk scarf

( I found the old shop so cute and took many photos of it )

I didn't wear a necklace because I had chosen very big earrings. 
By the way ... these ones are a present that I gave to  myself. The reason? 
I felt happy!  Isn't it the best reason for a gift??
( I always have a good reason...sometimes I surprise by myself!  )

My other jewelry and dark red nail polish

here I am with my grey coat and Armani bag.

Tempereatures are rising Spring ( at last ) behind the corner?? 
Let's hope ...

A gift

I hardly miss the occasion to celebrate, and last Saturday wanted to find a little gift for my beloved Mr.

The perfect occasion for a walk in  the city and brighten a very cloudy and gloomy day ...

Ice Iceberg 

I was wearing brown fishnet tights  ( which, in my opinion,  go nicely with everything in winter!)

Woollen grey hat  ( the best  solution against frizz hair!!! ) and a yellow bandana matching my skirt...

I can't tell you how much I walked, but at the end I found the  scent, the one I would have loved to smell on him ...

In the evening I gave the present, received one and enjoyed a lovely time. 
Have you noticed?  To give is at least as pleasant as to receive...

I never forget to celebrate ... it fills my heart with joy! 

Happy Valentine's day ...

Talking about long skirts

Long skirts are not easy to style  for me.
Not only because  in winter they overpass the coats, 

But also because at a certain age you risk to have a too old style .

In my opinion short jumpsuits often work with long skirts and add a modern touch to the ensemble. 
( As well as a pair of  mid-leg brown boots)

As I wanted a classic look but  not  too classic, I tried a blue top with silver-coloured  polka dots 

and  a lovely bow at the back !

( crystal jewelry )

And here, the look with the skirt overpassing my coat.
An assistant at my favourite shop said that short coats are made for being overpassed ...
In any case, either you like it or not,  please, note how my outfit perfectly  matches  my dog's!! 

I swear,  it wasn't my intention...    :-)

Any other ideas about how to style a long skirt??
