There was a time in my life when I was obsessed with orange, I would call the colour that had me swooning a blend of rustic orange and terracotta. I would also call it the colour of Italy, Italy as I remember it. Have you been there? I think no one travels to Italy without the longing to return one day. The country is so rich in history and culture, and walking the streets of Rome, Florence or Venice marks one's heart. At least it marked mine.
For this orange post of mine Caitlin of Roost, a beautiful food blog, was so kind to allow me to use her collage. It's from her 'Ode to Italy' post, which simply makes my heart happy. If you have been to Italy you'll be taken straight back and if you haven't been there then what are you waiting for?
I kindly borrowed the bag photo from Nam of Streetfsn, a fabulous fashion blog that, as the name indicates, covers street style. In August last year there was this post on men's bags only which I loved and I couldn't get that particular photo out of my head. It reminded me of Italy. Maybe it was taken there, I don't know.
The frost has left Antwerp so I couldn't be happier. I hope you're having a good start of the week!
