As the good Capricorn (goat) that I am, I’ve always felt drawn to heights. So one of the things that I most like of Rome are its rooftops. There are many parks and viewpoints where it’s possible to see the city from above, its chaotic disorder, its millions of antennas and its orange colors at sunset. La Roma vera, that’s it. My House, like others, has a fantastic terrace from where to see the neighborhood. Spring is the perfect time to enjoy it.
And to jump right into the spring mode, lots of flowers. I know that this shirt boomed last year and that you will be sick and tired of her, but I could not miss it and, in fact, it will reappear soon. It’s comfortable, gives light to the face, does not wrinkle and has a lovely pattern.

When I go visit around, I like to dress in comfortable garments that give me mobility. I use to choose short clothes, with or without tights depending on the season, and a footwear for easy promenading. The Levi’s shorts, of which I have some pairs, are an usual choice in these cases; they can be mixed with everything and they give me total movement freedom. Also the white booties have a lot of experience in travelling, actually they are quite ruined because of the long walks.
This time, the weekend getaway was to Tuscia; an area in Lazio quite close to Rome. It is as charming as Tuscany or Umbria, but it is a less touristic place, and during spring it is a really quiet place. Its landscapes are so beautiful and its people are lovely. I recommend it absolutely.

If it was not completely clear, I insist, my economy is not at its best and I suffer this problem when deciding what to wear. Such a normal event as it is to buy a 30€ pair of jeans is for me, nowadays, a dream. Solution/placebo? Flee markets. They are in every city and, if you look among mountains of stuff, you may find decent garments under 5€. Even if I am one of those who think that if you make an outfit using just with second hand clothes the result may be awful and you may seem a character of an 80’s film, sometimes the product of that combination is not so horrible. Here we have, actually, (excluding the shoes and the belt) a total market look.
Since the beginning I fell in love with the shorts, even if their cut doesn’t fit so good (at least to me because of my large hips). That’s why I decided to combine them with a tight sweater, specifically a black velvet one, that lightens the volume on the top. The bag, also a flee market acquisition, is made of leather and you can use it with or without its chain.
Although the summer seem to have arrived to Rome, the truth is the evening it gets colder and the use of tights becomes essential. Just a black coat to keep me warm and ready to go!
