Oh the rooftops of Florence... They are a magical world on their own, the perfect setting for an urban fairy tale. Whenever I look down the city from a cozy little terrace like this one I wonder who the people underneath all those roofs are, what they are doing, what they dream of...

Whether you are going back to school or the office this September, it's always great to make the new "working season" a fresh start. Hopefully summer has filled you with energy and motivation and you're not too sad about vacation being over. I have lots of plans and new projects coming up, so I'm really excited for fall to start - even because I'm starting it with a trip to the Mont Blanc next week! Yay! In the meanwhile I prepared a selection of back to school essentials and all kinds of lovely things that you can (and should) treat yourself to before you bury yourself in work.

I'm not sure whether we're going to have any more proper summer weather this year, so this might be one of the last summery looks I publish for a while. I threw together four different colors in this outfit, but I feel it's OK since they're all of the same intensity - this is my general rule of thumb when combining different colors in a look.

We took these photos last week in Punta Ala, one of our favorite vacation spots on the coast of Tuscany. Even though the weather wasn't typical for this time of the year - we had some cold night and lots of wind - we were lucky to capture this beautiful sunset over the Tyrrhenian sea. The dress I'm wearing is one of my summer favorites, I just love the large polka dots and the bubble hem and the super light cotton fabric is perfect for beachside walks. Do you guys like it?

The beautiful diamond rings you will see in this post were all created by Fabian Diamonds, a Los Angeles-based family business run by head designer John and his father Samuel Fabian. The gently curved lines and organic motifs of their jewelry were inspired by the beauty of nature - the feeling of infinity it gives you to watch the crashing waves of the ocean or the flight of a bird above the treetops.

I have always loved pairing black with powder pink, because I really like the contrast of these two colors and how they complement each other in a strong, but feminine look. This pleated chiffon skater skirt is a comfortable choice for hot summer days, and even though I'm not the kind of girl who sacrifices looks for comfort, I definitely appreciate the latter. As usual, I kept my accessories to the minimum and wore only one statement piece: a pair of vintage cabochon carnelian earrings. What do you think of this look?

Time for a new insta-post! If you look at my pictures, you might wonder if I decided to become a food blogger since there are so many food pics in here... Well, no. Not yet, at least... It' just that I love cooking, photographing and eating food, and I especially enjoy taking pics of my afternoon cappuccinos and pretty deserts - yes, I am that annoying person. If you still want to follow me, you can do it HERE. Happy weekend everyone!

I firmly believe that the hourglass silhouette is the most flattering way of dressing most body shapes. It accentuates our best assets while also hiding our flaws and is generally very feminine. Even though it includes a cinched waist, the sense of freedom it gives you is surprising, just think about it: there is no need to suck in your stomach, because it is hidden under a voluminous skirt (and so are your thighs), and your waist looks the thinnest it can possibly look without a corset. What's not to love?

All the lovely goodies you see in the picture above were sent to me by The English Soap Company. Let me tell you that when I first opened the package that arrived in the mail, it filled my living room with heavenly scents of all kinds and I was immediately impressed. I'm kind of picky when it comes to scents and I can definitely tell a high quality perfume from a cheap one, and I can assure you that these are as good as soaps get. I actually keep the ones that I am not using in my bedroom as a sort of home fragrance.

I'm so excited to share with you all my newest discovery, the amazing ESQIDO mink lashes. I love wearing falsies, but one thing I don't like about most of them is the exaggeratedly fake look they tend to give you. Well, this was not an issue with my Esqido BFF lashes, which look so natural that even I find them perfectly appropriate for daily wear.
