A WALK IN ORVIETO

Every time I go home I cannot wait to wander around the small streets of my medieval Orvieto. The shade of the stones that characterise its rock and houses is so warm and beautiful, and this is my perfect setting for an outfit post. I decided to go ton-sur-ton with, ehm, the wall to show you a detail of the last piece stolen from my dad's wardrobe, a mohair & wool maxi cardigan that is going to be a great transition piece for milder days. I told you I was ready for some 'family vintage' shopping...I wish you all a great week-end and I hope you are enjoying the beautiful looks from Milan fashion week!

Camel wool cardigan, COS sand angora jumper,  COS white silk stretch shirt
Vanessa Bruno skinny jeans, Les Pr├ęcieuses broches, Church's black Meadle brogues

  19. My dear blogger friend, you look absolutely beautiful! I like very much the simplicity of your look. However the best part is the accessories: these incredible broches and men fashion inspired shoes. I truly like how these items underline simple yet chic outfit of yours and add a bit of male vs female clash into the whole look.

    1. Hi Natalia, thanks for the lovely comment! I haven't watched that movie so I cannot tell you, but it's true that Orvieto is a popular setting for movies and (Italian) TV shows...
