Just came back from a short trip to my favourite spot in the world: Lago Maggiore (a.k.a. THE lake!). Its mediterranean flair and the good old 70′s-glam that has somehow never left make this place very inspiring. Yet it is totally quiet and relaxing unlike other lakes in Northern Italy. My sis and I decided to take some shots right before sundown trying to catch the gloaming light:

Palm garden

Intense greens = perfect contrast for my 70′s-inspired outfit! These shorts are not exactly flattering…I know, I know.

Silk-shorts: Zara, knitted top: LaLa Berlin, belt: Asos (borrowed from my sis), clutch & sandals: Bottega Veneta.

We took these pics right before going out for dinner. This is what my sister was wearing:

sequined dress: H&M, cardigan in nude: Zara, bracelets: Chinese pearls and vintage Tiffany, studded bag: Zara, booties: Fendi.
