Outfits

It seems that the Mother Earth is a little bit confused at times: It took all the way to the end of August to finally get some summer heat. This lightweight, earth toned Area di Barbara Bologna maxi dress is the perfect vessel to celebrate the transition from Indian summer to proper fall by adding a few layers when the evenings start getting colder again.

Last year I already declared my love for the Tuscan countryside after visiting my dear friend Barbara from the label Area di Barbara Bologna. When the opportunity arose to pay another visit to her studio and the surrounding cities Florence, Pisa and Lucca, I didn’t hesistate for long. This time around I was accompanied by friends and experienced a totally new side of Florence, a city which I can wholeheartedly claim now as one of the most beautiful places in Europe. Whether it is the relaxed “dolce far niente” athmosphere, fantastic food, friendly people or the amazing surrounding nature, this is where my soul is at ease. There are not too many places left in the world that make your heart skip a beat, or rather create a calm, stress free pulse. It’s no wonder I’m already getting an itch to visit Tuscany again.

Facing now the darkest times of the year, these cold and damp shortest of days, the only reasonable thing is to get cozy under the blankets with some hot tea in one hand and a good book in the other. If there was a chance to turn back time, I would probably place myself on the streets of New York or heck, on the deserted but warm beach of Atlantic City which was our next stop after DC. Apart from the wild casinos and nightclubs (fist pump Jersey Shore style, yeah buddy!) , this city offers a beautiful seaside and taking a walk on that famous boardwalk, you can almost feel the history and the smell of bootlegged whisky around you. No Nucky Thompson and the crew at sight though; what a pity.

When a fire alarm wakes you during your holiday midday nap and forces you rush out of the hotel just to hear that it was indeed a false alarm, at least you can take advantage of the fact that without this sudden distraction, this beautiful sunset would have gone totally unnoticed.
Luckily the only fire to be found was in the Virginia skies.
