(Personal taste, peeps!) And yet, lately I find myself more and more drawn to prints – it started with a scarf, then it moved to the girly dress, then more scarves and so forth, and now it appears that my tolerance for prints has gradually increased and morphed into -gasp!- an actual like –...

Here's a bit of what's been going on, on and off the blog: Traveling: No new trips this month (and I've really been missing London!) but I am going home to Sardinia in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, I am exploring Zurich. Join me for a virtual walk along the Schanzengraben. Craving: a new...

So here's what I am loving this week: The weather has been kind of psycho here: super sunny and warm, then grey and rainy. I tend to wear dark polishes in the fall and winter and more nudes in the spring and summer, but this year I am craving more color. weird weather makes it had to...

I may not be a country girl at heart, but I definitely enjoy playing one in the kitchen. So imagine my joy this morning, when I sent my husband to one of the local farmers for fresh eggs, and he returned with lots more than that. This is our favorite farm: we always get out eggs there,...

But then I remember that hello, it's London!! and I give myself permission to feel as excited as I please! The last time I went to London, in October, I took this: and this: and this too: I loved exploring London with the girls, it was lots of fun! I am really looking forward to...

A heel on a hiking- or desert-inspired boot may seem silly, but it can prevent the stumpy-leg effect without compromising on the anti-slip functionality too much. Skinny jeans or pants with a slim fit are a good choice because they counteract nicely with all the items that add bulk in a...

the Swiss Alps for the first time; it might be because it was there that I first realized that though I am and always will be an island girl, I do love the mountains as well, more than I thought possible; or perhaps it's simply because when visiting Graubünden, 9 times out of 10 you will be...

Today I brought up all the Christmas decorations I could find and started sorting through them, setting aside the ones I planned to use on our tree and picked out a bunch of them in silver and varying shades of blue. My goal? making one of these: 1. bend a wire hanger into a circle –...

) The girls' packing list looks a lot like mine (except of course for the heels and make-up.) The thing is: yes, it's a 2-week trip. But I can do laundry, and let's be honest, I will probably do some shopping, so this is more than adequate. What do you think? What does your packing list...

It's a very dark purple, with a hint of blue and subtle purple, silver and blue glitter. I think it looks especially good with black, because it's so dark, but it still creates a little contrast. Have I mentioned I love it? And so it was that when I was getting dressed this morning, I found...
