Italian women are always such great inspiration when it comes to dressing in a womanly, but also fresh and edgy way, all at the same time. They don’t pretend to be teenagers, and just radiate with confidence and assumed femininity.
WOW! What a powerful image: the person, the dress (esp the hem), the shoes, the stance… I do not usually like the cigarette (is it a cigarette?), but even here, (and I can’t believe I am saying this) it has its place, even its allure. Now this picture is NOT forced; this was not a “look” put together for show (which sometimes has to happen, and I understand and have sympathy for this). Instead, she seems totally in her element. I will be thinking about her all day as I study write. Very inspiring.
I love wearing white in the summer. I personally don’t do it enough, I know. Honestly, you feel more comfortable in white. Especially anything in natural fibers. This skirt you see above? An easy make on the sewing machine. I’m personally drawn to metallic whites these days. OR a faux white leather. Gosh, how how hot is that with a matching linen or cotton top?
