First post of the Autumn

Hello everyone! First I have to apologise for my very very long absence..I have about a thousand good excuses to justify my lack of posts but I guess saying that I was just plain lazy will have to do!

I promise that I’ll get back to posting at least once a week ( because I KNOW you really missed me!!!).

Now let’s start with the fist outfit of the Autumn, last Saturday I went for a walk in the countryside of County Monaghan and  I decided to wear this classic vintage blazer because it’s comfy and cosy, plus it matches perfecly with the surroundings! I matched it with a silk blouse, my beloved Top Shop trousers and black brogues ( I’m totally into brogues lately!)

One last thing, the reason why I look so out of sorts is because being quite the city girl I was terrified to ruin my shoes with the mud, which in the end  I managed to avoid by tip toeing my way back to civilization!

Baci, Giulia.

Anniversary dinner outfit

Hi everyone, it’s been a while since my last post and I’m sorry for the wait!

In today’s post I’m wearing a lovely flower print dress that I got on sale in New Look, I styled it with a blue blazer and a Fendi vintage bag that belonged to my mother.

I wore this outfit for my one year anniversary dinner with my boyfriend but I think that it would be nice for a night out too because is  quite sexy without exposing too much flesh!

I also think that the dress would be easy to wear on a day time occasion if paired with flats and a satchel bag.

Irish summer outfit

It’s a very hard task to pick the right outfit to go through a Galway summer day,  even more difficult when the weather changes every few minutes and the temperatures aren’t very high.

This time my choice was to put together a light dress and a oversize open worked woolen sweater.  The fact that the sweater is not too thick  makes the outfit still look summery but keeps you warm and cozy.

Even though I decided to wear it with pumps  to face a long walk  I think it would work well with wedges too.

Last but not least I’d like to bring your attention to my invaluable golden bracelets that used to belong to my grandmother.

These kind of bracelets were really popular in the sixties and the girls wanted to get as many unique charms as possible;  in this case  the first charm is a golden pound while the second  is a tag, when you spin it you can read the words ” ti amo” which means ” I love you” in Italian… definitely a the romantic gift that every girl would like to get!

Rocking a summer evening!

Hi everyone, today’s outfit post is a combination of some of the things that I really like at the moment.

I got my high low hem skirt few weeks ago in H&M and it took my a while to figure out how to style it best, in the end I decided to go for a quite rock&roll look adding my vintage leather jacket and my snake print sandals to it.

I’m happy about the final result and I can’t wait for some more nice weather to wear it again!

HELLO SAILOR!

Today the famous Volvo Ocean race arrives on the shores of Galway and  the whole city is buzzing while preparing for a week full of fun and events.

To get in the right celebratory mood I’d like to show my readers a photo shoot with a nautical theme  that I was asked to produce during my fashion course this year.

My inspiration was the french riviera during the sixties and the location is the Claddagh in Galway.

The photographer is Feargal Norton.

Summer day outfit

This is an outfit that I wore few weeks ago on a (almost) hot day in Galway, Ireland to go for a walk on the beach.

While I was walking I saw this  quite interesting spot near an abandoned factory and I couldn’t resist the temptation to pretend to be a famous model at a Vogue photo shoot for a while and pose for some pictures!

The outfit is a simple yet effective white t-shirt/ denim hot pants combo which I personally consider perfect for a day in the sun, I added red and turquoise accessories to give it a touch of color and my beloved red Converse to be ready for any kind of adventure!
