Friday morning

 Why I said Friday if today is Monday?  The answer is very simple: as many people I definitely prefer Friday ! It's one of those days that makes me feel  positive,  and last week was not an exception...

The sun was shining on the old roofs

I was wearing a new bracelet
( they told me it is a real leaf )

And my old pumps 
( good items live soooo long )

And I was ready for a walk on cobblestones!

I don't know if you ever experienced that , but in my opinion is one of the most difficult tasks a lady has to face! 
You know,  the heels always get blocked into  the slot between stones ...

But of course being Friday nothing could ruin my positive mood 

Nor the fact that I realized there was an extra job for my cobbler! 

Never mind ... it was Friday! 
( but the day flied away in a flash )

Many friends ...

Once more I said to myself that the blogosphere is at least as real as real life
A place where people meet each other, feel ( a positive ) interess in other people's lives and finally many of them become friends. 
Once more I said to myself that I should find some time for blogging

But I have to confess that last week I faced some technical  problems 
As the quality of my photos

As you can see I also tried to solve the problem changing perspective 

It turned out to be a quite silly idea with very little improving!

Never mind,  I said to myself that it would have added a sort of of real-life touch to the post
( it was a lie! I simply couldn't take good photos!! )

Wait a moment ... the end I made up my mind to go next to the front door where I took a sharp photo.

By the way, I also had a second problem:
On last week post I wasn't able to reply to your comments through my tab...sorry!

It's been a long time since I last posted, hasn't it? 

Why I didn't I considered a final goodbye post? The answer is very simple:I never thought to give up blogging and I always said to myself:tomorrow I will take some photos 
But tomorrow never came...

In the meantime days passed quickly 

Blogging was becoming a full-time job and it hadn't been my initial goal 
Now I am looking for a way to put together my real life and my blog. 
Will I succeed?
I am not sure 

But I miss chatting with my beloved friends around the world 

What about the tomorrow? 
You can never know...

End of August in Perinaldo

We are almost at the end of August : I must pile up as much beauty as I can.

Fill my eyes with memories

and my heart with emotions.

I will bring them back in mind little by little during the winter

And they will warm me long.

Today I am visiting the little village of Perinaldo
( Liguria region )

It's one of those tousands villages which  show the true soul of my country.

Away from the  famous touristic resorts there are no big hotels but stone houses

Frescoes in the alleys 

And the voice of old fountains ...

Look at my back : the sea is shining!
Tomorrow a whole day on the beach ...

Steet style

Today is the 15th of August which is a national holiday here.
I  celebrate it with a different post about street style on holiday.
Most of the ladies I took photos of are over 40 years old

This one is wearing a lace dress and has a scarf in her hair.
She is back from the supermarket, but doesn't  give up being stylish! 

( she is also on high, golden-coloured sandals )

A young lady with a gorgeous dress

Nice blue  dress with a big neckline  for a walk with husband

Mini dress for the beach

Elegant  neutral colour for cocktail time

I always like when ladies dress up! 

Who is my favourite? The lady above, very elegant while  chatting on the net!

Have a wonderful day ...

The most modern of my skirts

Hello darlings!  I am wearing today the most modern of my skirts

Away from the heat of the city I went to Liguria region. I took photos at a seaside resort called Bordighera.
Staying by the see is always a relief when it's too hot !

Here it is my super modern skirt . As you see it has a very loose waist closed by a rope
( please note my necklace. Greetje bought it for me in one of her visit to Turin. 
It's very summery and soooo chic! )


A medium sized bag which I can carry on my shoulder and having my hands free


I found a happy medium between high heels and flat shoes 
Which is at the moment my style...

The top is knitted and comfortable. It is not visible in photos,  but it has a very accurate manifacture that looks like a lace. I couldn't resist to have it ( Falconeri )  even if iI I am not a fan of sleveeless top.
I decided to buy it after thinking for a while . 
At the end I am satisfied with the purchase. 

Bordighera is where I bought my skirt a couple of weeks ago
( nice shops here, with clothes a bit different from those I usually buy )

Summer is a good time for experimenting something different.
Not bad going out of comfort zone when you are on holiday, right?

St. Giulio

This post refers to the second day in Orta ( small city on Orta lake  )
 I was wearing a different t-shirt .

Even if my platform shoes were very comfortable , I had to buy a pair of flat sandals to be able to safely walk on pebblestones! 
( is what happens when you decide for a very lightweight luggage!!)

Then I was ready for a visit to the tiny island of San Giulio

A world of silence, where there is a monastery , a small restaurant  and

many narrow halleys where you could  see  the   shining water of the lake in the distance.

I was caught by the silent beauty of the island

where many indications invited visitors to be silent in respect of the place 
and the meditation that there took place .

The same day my husband helped a swallow

And finally we had dinner in the open air, at a typical little restaurant with tablecloths of different colours.

It has been  a very  special day.
