Today I had a great day chatting, shopping and eating with my lovely sister. We met in Bologna for a long-awaited “time together” and of course, I took her to my favourite shops in town: COS, & Other Stories and Hidden Forest. You probably won’t know the last one I mentioned, but I have fallen in love with this line since I bumped into their shop by chance last summer. It’s an Italian company based in Verona and they make affordable, minimal, forward thinking, AND COMFY clothing (I do like comfy).
I bought this gorgeous skirt:
I actually left the shop wearing it!! It’s funny, I had left home in a pair of boring beige trousers, a striped top and my Stan Smiths (Here’s the post about them) and I ended up going home with a super white t-shirt my sister gave me for my birthday and the new skirt, which by the way looked great with my trainers! The thing is, I always dress really comfy when I go around shops because I do a lot of walking and I also want to be able to get undressed quickly and without too much fuss in order to try things on…
Anyway, I am looking forward to matching my military green (they call it khaki but I prefer military green because I have just realised I wasn’t into this colour trend because I hadn’t found any clothes I fancied yet in it but now I do, like it I mean!!) …. I was saying, I can’t wait to wear my new BIG skirt, and long for that matter, with my numerous white tops. I think I will exchange the trainers later on, when the weather gets hot, and it does here! for my lace up H&M burgundy sandals from last year (Lace-up sandals post).
By the way, I had gone to Bologna thinking of buying a floral print dress and a pair of mules….damn! I always do this, but, I find that if I buy what I fall in love with I wear it so much more than what I thought I should buy…
