(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...

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,...

I have a long list of things to bring, including some gifts for my family, special requests of things from Switzerland, German books for Sarah, and of course our vacation wardrobes. I tend to be a bit of an overpacker, but this year I have resolved to chill on vacation and not stress as much,...

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...

I might give in and order the Francesca pump above, it's such a great basic heel for spring and summer! Tell me... what are you itching to add to your wardrobe this spring?

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...

) 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...
