A few weeks ago, a long Bank Holiday weekend, three single girls in Milan…we really needed to find a way to have a fun! No way to leave the town for a weekend at the beach, then we decided to find interesting things to do: an evening at the opera, aperitivos, nights out and a full shopping session outside the city center to avoid the crowd of the weekenders in Milan for a shopping session around the Duomo.
We spent the whole evening in a “shop ‘till you drop” mood (although we didn’t buy as much as we expected!) and we also found time to make a mini outfit shooting in the middle of nothing (a white wall was enough!).
I was wearing my coordinated headband and shopping bag handmade with original African wax fabric by Madame Ilary, as well as the black culottes. A white tee by Cos, a pair of black slippers by Divine Follie and super big earring by Metalica Creazioni and I was ready to hit the shopping malls!
I came back home only with a necklace and some homeware from Maisons du Monde…and with a huge headache! I’m not used anymore to these prolonged sessions or I’m just getting too old for that! Ok, no this is not true, we’re never too old for shopping!!
I don’t know what’s going on lately but even if I love colors and we finally entered the season to wear them (Milan is also offering unexpected warm sunny days!) during the last weeks I’m dressing head-to-toe in black. Many people made me notice that and I must confess that I’m noticing too. Maybe I’m not ready to blossom? Maybe I’m just a bit bored…I can’t say, but black is being my uniform lately!
Don’t be surprised then If my outfit today is an almost total black, except for my new pair of snake effect silver boots that just got me into my Barbarella moment! I saw these adorable ankle boots in a newly opened shop near my house: I kept looking at them every time that I passed by their window, always tempted to get in and try them. But I was being a good girl, trying to save money, so I never stepped into the shop during the whole winter….until the season’s sales!!!
When I saw them reduced 50% off I decided that it was time to approach those coveted boots and I found out that there was only one pair left…my size! I couldn’t say no as I did for so many times and for so many months! They are from Divine Follie, an Italian label that I didn’t know before but they’re super comfortable and I wear them so much!
This time I wore them with Zara black sweater and mini skirt and Max&Co grey tomboy coat! I added a black Michael Kors bucket bag and my Malian vintage necklace.
