Animal bracelets. If there’s a shop where I love to spend half an hour getting lost inside, while I’m wandering through the streets of my gorgeous city of Florence, it’s Giovanni Raspini (here’s the link to their website and store locator to find out where is your nearest shop… it’s not just in Florence!). Amongst all the furniture and jewellery, silver is the main material on offer, made into wonderfully unique shapes. The animal collection, that I’m wearing in this look, is one of my favourites. Lions, crocodiles, leopards, parrots and… chameleons!
Animal bracelets: a chameleon on my wrist… and leaves on my fingers! When jewellery is the main focus of your outfit…
Yes, you heard me correctly! I have a chameleon on my wrist: it’s a lovely little animal that’s both bold and original. I love it! I decided to wear it with a ring of leaves, also in silver. The look continues with a pair of high-waisted jeans, elegant accessories and an unexpected t shirt…
Cruise through Northern Europe and around the Baltic with Costa Cruises
Cruise through Northern Europe and around the Baltic. It’s so true that when you come to the end of a cruise with Costa Cruises, you honestly don’t know how to get back to your normal routine back on land. The amazing experience, entertainment, sense of being part of a big family, the magical sea and its incredible sunsets, the food (varied and delicious) at all hours, the chance to get to know new countries and cities… it’s marvellous, ladies!!
Cruise through Northern Europe and around the Baltic with Costa Cruises: Saint Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm and Tallinn
Let’s start at the beginning. It was my very first cruise: so I’d never tried it and I was a bit sceptical of this kind of trip. What if we get bored? What if we don’t have time to explore all the cities that we visit? But now, sitting in front of my laptop back in Florence, let me tell you this: you feel SO weird being back on solid ground after a week of walking around on a moving vessel! The Costa Luminosa, the beautiful Costa Cruises ship that was our home for a week, is incredibly elegant, and designed in the Italian style (you can see all the photos of our suit below!). On board there is a huge spa with a pool, sauna, Turkish baths, and all kinds of spa treatments, plus 4 restaurants and 11 bars, where there is an infinite choice of food and drink. You can go from the buffet to the focacceria, pizzeria, formal restaurant (where there are also themed dinners by the chef Bruno Barbieri or gala dinners) to the Samsara restaurants (asian fusion, our favourite!) and the Club Luminosa (on the top floor of the ship, with an incredible view of the sunset!. Costa is also very entertaining: there’s a disco, a cinema, a theatre on 3 floors, a casino, shops, indoor and outdoor swimming pools with hydromassage, a gym and an outdoor running track. The ship is beautiful and very welcoming (and also organised to make sure everything runs smoothly and you have a stress-free holiday), with friendly and personal staff who are happy to help (like Alex, our cabin manager and Carlos, our waiter), who organise everything so that when you arrive at a new port for excursions (you can choose to go in a group or stay on the ship), and it’s almost a shame to leave them onboard…
Rainbow fashion: the colourful trend for this season!
Rainbow fashion. As I told you in my latest episode of Detto Fatto (RAI 2), one big trend for this season is that of rainbow outfits and super super super colourful clothes! I love this trend because, it has to be said, it really cheers me up! Of course, wearing an all-singing, all-dancing rainbow is no mean feat, but together we can discover this trend together.
Rainbow fashion: the colourful trend for this season!
After the recent seasons of minimalism and “Norm Core” trends, finally colours are making a come back in our wardrobes: basically we’re saying a temporary adios to grey, white and black. It’s actually rather sad to say bye to these staples! So, on the catwalks, we saw lots of rainbow looks: multicoloured stripes which made actual rainbow outfits: from Ferragamo and Gucci to Chanel and Armani. You only have to think of the SS16 Gucci collection that was worn by tons and tons of fashion folk during fashion week, sometimes worn with a multicoloured skirt or on trend jeans (Flares or “Mom jeans”). Okay, we’re talking about very experienced fashionistas here. But how on earth do the rest of us wear this trend?! It’s not as hard as you think!
PAIR RAINBOW COLOURS TOGETHER WITH NEUTRALS: the secret to creating wearable looks is all in the colour palette. If, for example, you want to wear a multicoloured coat, pair it with a neutral look, possibly in neutral tones of white, black, grey and beige.
RAINBOW COLOURS + JEANS: THE PERFECT COMBINATION: the ideal way to wear the rainbow trend is to pair it with denim. A multicoloured top with mom jeans or flares, or even dungarees. A rainbow skirt with a denim shirt. And so on.
Green parka jacket. This is one of my favorite outfit, that I’ve ever worn, did you like it on Instagram (You can find me HERE or look for @ireneCCloset). I love it! I like to match army green, such a casual and boyish color with baby pastel shades, delicate and super feminine colors. So today I put on an oversize army green shirt, a green parka jacket (with a cool back) and a powder pink skirt.
Green Parka Jacket and Extra-Long Pleated Skirt
The skirt is suuuuper long! A floor length maxi skirt. Since the outfit looked a bit too wide, I decided to add a waist skinny belt over the green parka jacket, to enhance my body shape and for during the latest fashion shows I saw lots of belts over the coat! Well, what do you think about this look? Comment below I want your opinions! :) Hugs and kisses!
