Sea Side Dinner Outfit

We went out for a lovely sea side dinner where all of the food was served family style so we got a gigiantic plate of ravoli that took up half of the table! The most difficult thing about choosing an outfit at the sea is the Vespa factor. We take the scooter everywhere here and wearing a dress while zipping along the coastline could lead to random flashing....just saying.

Dress: TJ Maxx
Cardigan: Zara
Charm Bracelet: thrifted
Wedges: 9 West

Romping at the Seaside

Wearing my new romper to the seaside today. Wouldn't really call it a beach because it's mostly rocks and cliffs along the coast. But there are lovely terraces where you can rent an umbrella and enjoy the sunshine.
Romper: Promod

Are You Shopping Missoni for Target?

I have often said that of all the stores they don't have in Italy, I miss Target the most. This has never been more apparent than now as the Missoni (an Italian brand!!) gear up to release their epic collection for Target on September 13th. I have to ask every family member I have to try and snag a piece for me but I am dying to know if you will be shopping it and what pieces are you going for?

It's Hot!

We almost got away with a nice mild August until this weekend. Ba ba ba...the heat wave arrived. Remember that in Italy, that is no air con. Even if you go to the movies. The trick is to open all of the windows in the house and hope that that creates an air flow. I also made homemade lemonade which was a nice treat. I have learned to hand make many of my favorite foods because they are no where to be found in Italy. But they do have gelato, in many many cooling flavors. Some people go crazy when it's hot and there is no air conditioning. For example right now there is a protest march going on outside my window. All the waving of the banners creates a slight breeze.

cashmere tank: thrifted
shorts: thrifted pants, sewn into shorts
boots: thrifted
necklace: I made it
bracelet: I sewed together several friendship bracelets to make a cuff
belt: bought a Khols a hundred years ago

Inspiered by Mad Men

It seems that Banana Republic has caught Mad Men fever. The retail store has just released a limited edition collection inspired by everybody's favorite AMC show. There is a line for both men and women, which I love because who doesn't want a Don Draper look alike, am I right ladies?!

Fall Collection: Urban Bohemian

This Fall Italian Postcards is doing vintage in themed collections. The first of the season is called Urban Bohemian. Here is a shop preview of what's to come.
Everything is being added to the shop this week. Feel free to ask any questions!

This music is on of my inspirations and accompanies this collection well, it is a beautiful mix of old and new gypsy songs.
