BACKSTAGE

Hello Everyone,
Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been quite busy with work these past weeks. There's a lot to do in a fashion company before Christmas, we work hard and basically all day long but it's a lovely job and I thought it would be nice to post some of the backstage photos (lights checks and color calibrations).

WARM AUTUMN

Hello Everyone, I've been pretty busy lately and really had no time to post anything. I started a new job and put all my heart in it, plus I moved to a new city so I passed my nights decorating my new home, sewing tents etc.. 
I went to see my boyfriend in Livorno, Tuscany. Hope that you like these pictures I took of the boys, outfit posts will come back next week.

ORANGE RAYS

These pictures were taken in Villanueva de la CaƱada, a little town near Madrid where my sister lives. Such an incredible place with fields and landscape that makes you think that you are in a western movie rather than close to a big city like Madrid.

A DAY I'LL NEVER FORGET

Years of sacrifice, long hours of study, amazing friendships, collide in one day: The one of the Graduation Ceremony.
I am finally a Graduate of Fashion Marketing at the Istituto Europeo di Design of Milan. 
These pictures are from July but I decided to share them here since I had so many requests, hope you can feel the immense joy of that very special day.

THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT

The Butterfly Effect is an international series of water sports events designed to empower women. Since its first small windsurfing event in 2007, the Butterfly Effect has evolved into a worldwide movement. Over the years we have sponsored 26 different non-competitive events and workshops, in 10 countries, with thousands of participants. We continue to sponsor several events all over the world every year. 
This summer the "Butterflies" are landing in Torbole, Lake Garda, exactly where I live. Unfortunately I won't be there on that day because I will be sailing in Sardinia for the Melges 20 European Championship, but a lot of friends of mine are participating and I really suggest it to all of you girls willing to travel to Italy or already in this beautiful country.


BE THE EFFECT! Register online HERE or directly in Torbole ! contact info@betheeffect.com for more info. (Event cost: 40€ in Torbole, Check in 10AM at Shaka Surf Center on Aug 31st/ 52$ online)

HINTS OF ALOHA

I've always fancied Hawaiian inspired shirts. This one is of Benedikt, a german artist that I get to know in Milan. I thought it was so special, I couldn't avoid putting it here.

SIDEWALK SURFER

The end of a midsummer day, the warm breeze... the place we call home could be any better than this. Here is my sister Francesca, enjoying the sunset light of a nice day in the Sanuk sidewalk surfers.. because your happiest days are always spent in sandals.

MERMAID BIKINI AND SALTY HAIR

The days spent in the boat are always the best. The salt in the hair and on the skin, the feeling of being cuddled by the sea and the wind.. I could stay there ages and never feel the need to touch the earth again.
These pictures were taken in Livorno, Tuscany on an extremely nice summer day.

A SPORTSGIRL'S DREAM

This weekend I went sailing in Marina di Grosseto, a place where my dad used to come every summer when he was my age. Is a place that will always have a share of our heart and a true feeling of belonging.
I decided to wear my new MI OLA swimsuit because I always like to wear bikinis that follow my body meanwhile I am doing sport and not to worry about if they stay put, without renouncing to style.
Mi Ola is an American company inspired by the tropics, and they are really good at doing nice bikinis for us mermaids!

DINOSAUR'S TRAIL

The Marocche di Dro (lake Garda, Italy) is a massive mass of rocks with blocks of gigantic dimensions chaotically distributed more than 100,000+ years ago. Dinosaur footprints were discovered on some stones in 2000. It involves footprints left behind 190 million years ago from different dinosaurs, at least one footprint is from a big herbivore, about 6-7 meters tall, while the other is from a carnivore. 
I went on discovery of this Nature's treasures with my boyfriend and family, I was definitely not very well dressed, but c'mon I was hiking..

MATCHING SISTERS

Me and my sister are very alike. Sometimes we just play with it, like in these pictures where we went to the beach in matching ODINA SURF bikinis. 
Odina makes Eco friendly bikinis made to be fashionable meanwhile they "sticks" to you whatever you wish to do.. surfing, sailing, playing at the beach..
I am a fan of Surf Bikinis because I enjoy the fact that my bikini is following my active lifestyle and I just don't have to worry if it's in place or not. I trust it and I'm safe ;)

SAILING WITH MUSTO

This weekend I've sailed the Melges 20 Audi Sailing Series in Torbole, Lake Garda. Sailing is my sport since I started to walk, my passion and a kind of job beyond my Fashion Marketing degree. Melges are thrilling, with a very high competitive level and nice locations to race in. With my 41kg I am the 4th person  on-board, and we tiny girls are pretty requested in this sailing class.
To me, when it comes to sailing, there is only one brand that can be taken in consideration, and is Musto. It's amazing both in matter of quality and style. Furthermore they do a women's line that is very cutting edge and thought for female sailors in every little detail.

A CLOUDY DAY OF SUMMER

During this weekend in Lake Garda crazy weather made its big entrance. We passed from summer weather to an early autumn one, with temperatures around 15° and the water dropping to 13°. Nearly at the end of one of these strange days, me, my boyfriend and our friend Francesco decided to take the SUP (Stand Up Paddle) and go for a ride in the lake, that is so unusual to be so flat. Even so we had to wear buoyancy aids due to the lake regulations..but in it I put my iPhone with the LifeProof case, that makes it completely waterproof!

THE ROMANTIC SIDE OF SPORTS

Some people believe that Sporty girls never wear elegant garments. Definitely wrong. This shirt is one of the most romantic items that are in my closet and farer from the idea of casual-comfort clothing. Nevertheless I like it and I like to mix it with casual clothing in order to make it look feminine and easy without seeming bon-ton. 
I was going out with my boyfriend and I paired it with a pair of shoes that gave me some extra height, the Nike Dunk Sky Hi. Love them or hate them, those shoes can't pass unobserved. Personally I love them even if usually I don't like wedge sneakers.. but these are Nike, it's another story.

THROUGH MY LENS

My summer has just started. No more lessons, no more university. Except that the weather hasn't been so summery lately. Today is plain sun and I really hope that it will last a while. These pic are from a place that is just behind my house.
