SNACKS AND CHECKS

SNACKS AND CHECKS

All vintage! 

Spent this Saturday strolling around Milano, between shops and museums. Funnily, my dear friend and I unpurposely matched with the checks pattern, that’s one of the ones I always enjoy to wear. Plaid, Prince of Wales heritage or tartan, checks in all their many forms are never out of date or boring.

Ended the afternoon at orsonero coffee, my new favorite café in the city.

 

TOTEME ON MY MIND

TOTEME ON MY MIND

San Remo scarf / Sedona shirt / Santos jacket / Leon tights black monogram

One of the best brand around, the emblem of the Scandinavian simplicity. The one brand that easily helps you to stock the closet with daily basic, yet never boring pieces.

What would you choose to buy first? Hard decision.

WHEN IN ANTIBES

WHEN IN ANTIBES

Antibes-Juan les Pins is one of the most well known locality on the Cote d’Azur. Located between Nice and Cannes, the city manages to be a historic town but it’s also very innovating, having multiple facets to see and explore.

As I really enjoy spending my summer holidays in the south of France I though this not-so-little city, I’ve never been to before,  would be an amazing reality to explore. It was indeed. All the instagram posts about it and its beauty were right.

Cap d’Antibes can be really defined as a small piece of paradise. I suggest you take Le Sentier du Littoral, a path which follows the coastline and takes you into this immense park, scrupulously maintained. There also quite a few millionaires chateau and dream residences there. After the walk, I highly suggest you to relax and have a drink in one of the beach resorts that welcomes you after the walk.

You surely don’t have to miss a walk within the old town of Antibes, which looks like it hasn’t changed much for centuries.There’s a maze of narrow streets, overlooked by pastel-coloured buildings with colourful shutters. There are nice pavement cafés and restaurants mixed in with shops selling lots of artisan products.

Also don’t miss the Marché Provençal which can be found daily, where traders from around Provence bring fresh produce to sell – fruit and vegetables, cheeses, olives, spices and also natural soaps.

While searching for a studio, Pablo Picasso came across the Château Grimaldi. In 1946 he started to work there. Now it offer a selection of works he himself offered to the museum. There you can also see different art pieces by Nicolas de Staël, Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman.

Having dinner with feet deep in the sand is definitely always a nice experience. That’s what you can do in all the Juan Les Pins resorts. Juan Les Pins is one considered the most cheerful part of the city, with an exciting always-present nightlife where night owls can totally find plenty of pubs, restaurants and casinos.

POSTCARD FROM SOUTHERN ITALY

POSTCARD FROM SOUTHERN ITALY

It’s already mid July, and in less than a months there will finally be summer holidays. Two free weeks in which I do see myself doing some of my favorite things: sun-bathing, enjoying the seaside, reading books ( preferably thrillers ) and surely eating well. 

The plan is still not fully down but I will surely spend some time in Otranto, that’s in the south of Italy. A magic place in which I always go back to. It has an amazingly green-blu colored sea, amazing food and the people are so nice as well. 

Tell me your plans!
