I wish I could still enjoy these moments, contemplate the colours of the sunset over the sea, wait for the moon rising over the water. It’s really hard to leave this beautiful summer! Clearly, I must do anything, but what? …

Is your capsule wardrobe ready for the beach?
I knew it was going to end this way! To talk about the capsule wardrobe, the one I fear most, the one that gives me the headache just thinking about it. I remember that when I was at school I often asked the teacher to tell the story lesson to the classroom. And I also remember one of my best moments, when I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures, after a hard work on an interdisciplinary thesis in Modern History. Maybe it is a sort of exorcism against nightmares and fears that drives me to work on the most difficult subjects, a kind of challenge, I can say, between me and the fate to discover that you can love what you fear. And today it’s the turn of the perfect closet! And of the capsule wardrobe! … Discover how to pack your suitcase for the holidays, keep on reading at the dedicated page.

(Photo from Pexels by Pete Johnson). Good morning dear readers! Are you lying on the beach, under the sun of a famous overcrowded holiday resort? And what are you wearing? A bikini, of course! Well, at least I hope you are! But that’s not enough for the classy over 40 woman. The beach outfit comprehends more than just that and the dress code is valid on the beach too.

Go for boho style when the days become brighter
How many times have you heard of the boho style and how many times about the gipsy style? So many foreign terms to identify what? The kind of look that often appears in Spring and Summer and that calls to mind the gypsy mood. If you only pronounce it, you can perceive even the colours and the joy of the 60ies. These two styles have something in common.
The boho borrows from the gipsy long and colourful skirts, the love for nature that emerges from the floral prints and the paisley patterns, the desire of freedom suggested by soft fabrics, fringes and tassels that flutter in the wind. Everything seems so simple, but nothing is left to chance…
