Easter & Co







Skirt-Zara
Top-H&M


Buona Pasqua or happy (related) Easter! 
finally I have enough internet to post something. This weekend I spent with eating too much and doing nothing because I became sick on Wednesday so I have an excuse for that.
Here in Italy you celebrate Easter bigger than in Switzerland. People meet up and go out or stay at home for eating a big meal and everything is closed (so no shopping). 
On Sunday I stayed at home with my mother and her boyfriend. They cooked something delicious with orange and meat and although I prefer not eating meat too much, this was so good! 
After a break (because we ate too much) I took my camera and we took some pictures together. I'm really happy about the result and then I did my monthly video where I talk about my exchange and give advice. The cute dog in the picture is called Sophie and there's also another one called Mona. They're adorable! 
Today I returned to school and finished at seven o'clock. After finishing I went to a shoe store (my favorite one for shoes) and bought Chelsea Boots for 40 euro instead 120 euro. They're wonderful and made of leather. I'm going to show you another time. Now I'm going to continue reading signore degli anelli (Lord of the Rings) and then I sleep. 
Buona Notte!

Discovering: Subdued



today is discovering sunday. 
last tuesday i went to firenze with intercultura like we did when we went to venice. it was wonderful weather and firenze is amazing. when we arrived i saw a shop which i really liked. it's called "subdued" i asked my host sister about it and she said we also have one in our town. so i went there on friday and bought 3 things 2 of them i also found online (see pictures). i would have bought more but summer isn't here yet so i go again in the summer time because most shirts are belly tops also the sweaters. so i had to buy high waisted jeans to wear the 2 nice tops from there. they sizes are a bit special. but they have only little sizes so i had to send my little sister many times to search one bigger bc i'm quite tall but maybe the bigger sizes were all sold out. the shirts and tops are very elastic, so that's also great.
the store is a bit similar to brandy & melville but he has more high cropped things and belly tops. 
if you like a bit the classic style of the 70s with high waisted jeans, you will love the store as i do. 
click here if you want to get to the website. 
nice sunday to you all!

i bought this top. the details on the back are amazing and i love the colour. 


this i want to but i couldn't find it. it's so different and nice bc it's off shoulders, what i love.


this i will buy too bc i searched so long for this. but i will first look around in other stores and if i don't find one i like more i buy this.


these are the wonderful high waisted jeans i bought. mine rise a bit more and they look better than here on the picture.
i love them and i paid for them 50euros, but there real jeans. i prefer real jeans, bc it holds longer.also mine have high ankles.
