The Ladybug and the Sicilian shade of blue

Blue: the color of my beautiful Sicily.

I loved this street art at a tram stop along the sea in my hometown Messina, because it just reminded me of the color of my native sea.

I wore this almost total vintage outfit during my winter holidays, it was a warm and sunny day for December and I was just enjoying a long walk with my sister when we stopped to take some pictures.

I was wearing my new vintage culottes from Maison Retrò, an online shop from the lovely Federica who mostly sells on social networks. It was the first time that I bought something that I just saw on Facebook but thanks to Federica it was a lovely experience and the plaid culottes were just perfect!

I paired it with a Benetton jumper and another vintage find from Damsels in Distress: these adorable pair of shoes that looked like a pair that my granny used to wear when I was a kid.

The beautiful knotted turban, handmade with vintage lace and golden trims, is from Madame Ilary, golden loops earrings are a vintage find from Sugar Mama Vintage and the beautiful Senegalese orange necklace comes from the lovely Mara of Seyeyaram that I met during the Popcorn Garage Market: we share the same love and passion for Senegal that’s why we recognized each other in the middle of a crowded market!
