Cocco


I sort of took today off and spent it in bed recuperating from weeks of weird sleeping schedules, and in the kitchen making lemon veal scallops, hand cut potato chips and persimmon cake. I've definitely earned some domestic goddess points, but I didn't actually get dressed properly, which means there is no outfit post today. Instead I decided to share something else with you: a new arrival to our family - Cocco (Italian for 'coconut'), the maine coon kitten. His original name is Vladimir della Perla Blu, but I prefer Cocco - short and sweet. He is 3 months old, chirps like a bird, purrs like an engine, and already walks on a leash. How cool is that? ;) Stay tuned for my next outfit post - I'm changing my wardrobe to fall/winter this weekend (even though it's still 23 degrees during the day), so there will be boots and jackets and hats and all kinds of stuff.

Textures


Today's outfit is a game of different textures - the heavy velvet of the jacket, the leather effect skinny jeans, the flowy chiffon of the blouse, the suede of the boots, and the coarse python skin of the bag. They are so different, yet they work together to create an everyday look that is fun and elegant at the same time. I think we often underestimate the importance of textures, but the arrival of fall is a great occasion to experiment with new and unusual combinations.

Flowy Skirt and Ruffles in the Garden


Nothing like a flowy skirt and a ruffle blouse to make you feel super feminine and dressed up. The blouse and skirt I'm wearing here are made of very light and sheer cotton which I love, because it's comfortable to wear, but still dressy and elegant thanks to its transparent layers and lovely fall. In fact, I couldn't resist taking a few skirt tossing pictures which came out pretty cool :) I'd love to know what you think!

Business Casual for a Day in Forte dei Marmi


Another business casual look today - a simple blazer and pumps paired with casual grey jeans and a ruffled collar blouse to make the outfit a little more interesting and feminine. I wore this today on a business related trip to Forte dei Marmi. I rarely wear my hair in a low ponytail like this, but I thought I'd give it a try now that I have bangs. What do you think?

Open Back Sweater


This is a casual outfit I wore for a countryside trip yesterday. Me and hubs visited Villa La Gigliola in Montespertoli, where they will be shooting a new TV series he's producing, so we grabbed the occasion to take some a pictures, and also had a lovely home-cooked lunch with some amazing wine they make at the Villa. I wish all weekdays were like that...

NEW HAIRCUT - Bangs Bangs


Today I proudly present you my new haircut! I've had bangs before, once when I was like 10 (I don't remember that working out too well...) and last summer, which actually did work out and I loved them. Thankfully I have no problem growing them out, because I'm blessed with extremely fast-growing hair, so now I decided to repeat the experiment, and I'm quite pleased with the result. What do you think?

Vintage Croc and Beanie


Yesterday we moved into our new(est) place in the Tuscan countryside. It's calm and nice and quiet, and it's just a 20-minute drive from Florence. We are going to stay here for at least the next two months, which is sort of an achievement considering how much we usually move around... This new place has a lovely park, which I'm definitely going to use a lot for blogging purposes. Here's my first outfit post from the new location:

A Walk In The Park - Sunday Outfit


This is what I wore for a walk in the Cascine Park in Florence on Sunday afternoon. I didn't think too much about this outfit, just threw a few things together to make it look casual, but not overly so, because I didn't know where we would end up later in the evening. The bag deserves a special mention: it is an espresso colored Badgley Mischka in the softest leather with a colored stone closure, and it's also practical. Jackpot.

FORMAL BUDGET LOOK - Blush in the Park


Today I challenged myself to create a high-end looking outfit on a budget (if you don't count the python bag). Me and hubs had a business lunch at the Four Seasons in Florence, and it was a good occasion to experiment with a formal look. Luckily it was a beautiful day today so I could wear this light chiffon blouse that I looove, and the same open toe shoes that I wore for this budget look, and this Vegas cocktail look. I kept myself to a nude color palette with the exception of my purple trench, which I only needed later in the afternoon. The Four Seasons has a beautiful park, as you can see, and we took advantage of all its hidden romantic places to shoot these pictures after our lunch. What do y'all think?
