The wonderer and the city

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
It is one of those days spent walking around the city for many hours, surrendering myself in the midst that is diluting the sharp contours of the buildings.

I sometimes find myself inspired by the frozen walls and the life they hide behind. I enjoy watching the low-key clouds, mixing dark shades of grey on so many tones.

Some alternative rock makes the top of my playlist today. While I wrap myself in clouds, I add some pops of color here and there – some red sock-boots, red glasses and a glass of red wine.

Winter coats

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Something to keep you warm in full winter season is a must, but if you wish to add another layer to your choice, like keeping up with the aesthetics of the moment, be mindful of what designers proposed for the cold days ahead.

There are various directions which can take your everyday styling to new heights, so following the one that feels most authentic should come easy. Classics will do, but also keep in mind the new, actual, reinterpreted versions, for a bit of edge.

Furs and Faux Furs.
Choosing between a good-quality faux fur or an eco, mindfully grown natural fur is a long discussion and a matter of preference in the end, so I will not get into that debate right now. But if you do choose to wear a fur this winter, just be creative with it, and explore colors and textures. A pastel shearling coat, a check-printed fur, some animal print patterns or a big, chunky plush. Why not?

Classical coats & the new styling.
That iconic camel classical trench is a wining it’s way back up in our closets. How can you not love them when they are so versatile and feminine and chic? Find a well tailored piece that complements your body and there you have it – that one thing that will elevate your outfit. Go for a classical camel belted one, or a checked oversized masculine version. Think Balneciaga and add a pop of color with some neon stretch boots or style with a vibrant clutch. If you feel like daring, chose a cool deconstructed classical coat, that reinvents shape and function.

Capes are also making a comeback, and it feels like a fairy tale came true. Literally. Capes can make a huge statement, so don’t overthink if you feel drawn to one of these beauties – just buy it!

Puffer jackets.
I remember wearing these when I was a kid and loving them. I couldn’t be any happier for this comeback. Not only do I love that comfy sensation you have while being hugged by a puffer jacket, but I also find myself inspired by their versatility. I like how they look cool and sharp, while paired both with snickers or pointed high heels.

As an option, consider a very shiny design in a bright color, to pop-up your look. However, a powdered, matte material looks much cooler than it sounds and is my top choice regarding puffers. Also, take advantage of the volume and get one that plays with the design of the neckline in your advantage.

Leather looks.
When it comes to leather this year, it’s all about shine and dark colors. Think Matrix inspired shiny long leather coats, with belt and dark sunglasses and you have a pretty actual look. In a milder version, a 70’s inspired look with lush hair and a floral dress would benefit from the structure of a chic leather trench. For a more sophisticated appearance, a monochrome black outfit, where shiny leather plays with a knit top and velvet trousers, will also look fresh and up-dated.

French chic and a glass of red wine
A postman’s cap, full of unwritten letters and meaningless stories
Ease.
Today is light and full of wonders.

How about now?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

It was one of those weekends I had nothing on my mind and then everything happened.
And so I came to remember that when you don’t make plans
You actually make the greatest of them all
You plan an encounter
With the unexpected.

Pinky from the block

Late mornings in the city with a creamy latte and some deep dark sunglasses. Mirror effect is even better.
Mornings after with a head full of spin and a vibrant open heart.
Rainy mornings that you paint with pink skies.
Pink mornings served with raw presence.
Bonne apetit!

A weekend home

img-set-3.jpg

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
The most pure fragrance of joy locked up in every corner of the house. The pleasure of sharing witty jokes with hidden meaning, the art of cooking in all its forms, endless stories of life and the beauty of daring freedom. The most vibrant colorful gardens.

Visiting home feels best when I wear something cosy, but a touch of fantasy and play is always welcomed.

This time, the rain kept us inside. So I cuddled in my cosy armchair and enjoyed a good wine and some lovely conversations.
