Cashmere, Fur and Felt

If you've been following me for a while, you know how much I like a total black look with a single pop of color, and today I'm back to my favorite combination again. This time I chose a cashmere turtleneck with fur cuffs, a burgundy felt skirt, opaque cashmere tights and patent leather accessories. I kind of used these last days of winter to wear something real winter-y before I put all these things away for the spring season. I really like the combination of these two colors,  definitely more suitable for evening than day, but I think in winter you can really wear it whenever you want.

Clashing Checks

I was totally planning another outfit for today, but the weather was so warm and sunny that I had to look for a completely different and lighter option. I combined three different types of checks - on the vest, the skirt and the tights - which kind of clash but not really, if you know what I mean. This outfit incited some comments from some (may I say cowardly) men standing across the river from where we were shooting. Totally unacceptable. I bet they wouldn't have dared to say anything if they had been on our side of the river... Does it ever happen to you? How do you react?

Corset and Pencil Skirt

pencil skirt, kovats anett

After an unusually casual last week today I'm showing you something a little more dressed up and feminine. This emerald green La Perla pencil skirt is one of my favorite pieces (I used it in this summer outfit as well), and I wear it with everything - a long sleeved sequined La Perla top for formal occasions (might show it to you soon), a skin tight leotard for a dinner out on the town or a sweater for a casual weekday. Today I wore it with

Hot Pink for a Lunch at the Beach

This is the outfit I wore for a Sunday lunch with the in-laws in Forte dei Marmi. Actually I could have dressed up a little more, but it was one of those (few) days when I didn't really want to... so I just relied on the color of my sweater and the jewelry to add some interest to this sporty weekend look.

Velvet Gloves

I took some risks with today's outfit, but I definitely had fun with it. First of all, I wore a large patent leather belt over my thick fur vest and I was afraid it would make my silhouette boxy and be generally unflattering instead of giving me an hourglass shape, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Another risk I took was with the suede and faux fur booties. I prefer to wear heels with this dress, but I wanted to keep it a little more casual this time. Of course I had to add a little pop of color, as usual, so I wore these velvet gloves by Kenzo to spice things up a bit. What do you think?

Snow White

I've had this hooded bomber for a while, but I really only wear it occasionally when the weather is just perfect for it, and today it was: not too cold, not too warm, sunny and windy. You can't really see the sun in the pictures though, because we took them in a shadowy park right before sunset. I am absolutely not a morning person, so we always take my pictures as late in the afternoon as possible when I am most active, so winter has been really hard with the sun setting really early, but fortunately it's been getting better and today's sunset was at 17:30. Can't wait for summer...

Bubblegum Green

I love to wear black. What I love even more is black with a pop of color, which is exactly what I wore today. I've been really into green recently, and I just received this cute green cardi in a package from my mom, so I decided to give it a try. What do you think of it? I kept the rest of the look really simple - skinny pants, black high-heeled boots, my favorite beanie and a pair of fingerless gloves I've recently dug out of some moving boxes. I really used to love them a couple years ago, and I realized I still do :) Looking forward to all your lovely comments! :)

White Roses

It was a nice spring-like day today, so we went to for a walk in the beautiful Tuscan countryside and shot these pictures. I love how the background came out and how it totally looks like it's a nice and warm April day. It actually felt like it, too... I wore a light RED Valentino sweater with large white roses on the collar, matched with my ivory rose earrings and white rose-patterned tights. I don't really wear white tights usually, but sometimes it's fun - they lend a sort of innocence to the outfit. Let me know what you think of this look :)

You might have already heard in the news that Italy, especially the cities of Florence and Pisa, have been flooded due to the heavy rainfall. (I'm OK, Mom!) Thankfully I don't live close to the Arno river, so we're doing kind of fine here, except all the roads to our house have been flooded since the roadside ditches completely filled up with water. Me and hubs were driving home last night when
