Yesterday, after the 13 hours travelling by plane my biggest desire was to sleep all afternoon on the sofa with Matilda (mmm, I actually did that for half an hour) but some job meetings deserved a more professional look than my pijama. I chose to wear my pumps created in collaboration with Shoescribe, tricolor trousers, maxi beanie and new Michael Kors bag ordered on Monnier Frères.
From today (and until the 20th November) middle season sales start on Monnier Frères (a lot of items are 50% discounted): If you’re one of The Blonde Salad readers use code SALAD10WW at monnierfreres.com check-out to take an additional 10%off! Good shopping 🙂

Ieri, dopo le 13 ore di viaggio in aereo, il mio desiderio maggiore era svenire sul divano di casa insieme a Matilda (mmm, in effetti per mezz’ora l’ho fatto) ma alcuni appuntamenti di lavoro richiedevano un abbigliamento più “professionale” del mio pigiama. Ho scelto di indossare le mie scarpe create in collaborazione con Shoescribe, pantaloni palazzo tricolori, maxi cuffia e la nuova borsa di Michael Kors ordinata da Monnier Frères.
Proprio oggi (e fino al 20 Novembre) iniziano su Monnier Frères i saldi di mezza stagione del 50%: se siete lettori di The Blonde Salad usate il codice SALAD20IT al check-out su Monnierfreres.it per avere un ulteriore sconto del 10%! Buono shopping 🙂

  • Blasphemy! : )…

    Yes, congratulations for…

  • I believe what you composed was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your information is not good., however suppose you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean Back from Miami | The Blonde Salad is a little plain.

    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve
    written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

    Certo che potresti, ogni tanto mica sempre, dare delle risposte ai 3000 commenti/complimenti che ricevi(tra un impegno e l’altro regalaci 5 minuti) …circa in dieci ti hanno chiesto dove hai acquistato il cappellino ma da novembre ad oggi zero risposte!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m in love with this look. I have to attend court on a regular basis for my job and I don’t really care much for the traditional ‘Professional’ attire. I’m always searching for court outfits without sacrificing my own personal style. These slacks would be perfect. This is great inspiration. Thank you! I love love love your blog!

    I would never put this look together, but i think it looks perfect in you! I guess it’s something that only europeans can do!!! Love it!

    Dear Chiara,
    Since yesterday I came back from Milan where unfortunately I only stood 3 days and just seen your post (that u were back home just about the same time), I finally decided to post a comment.

    I met your blue-eyed younger sister during shopping at H&M and instantly recognized her because of your blog. Hopefully she did not get scared because of my approach.. 🙂 So my first-time-visit to Italy and beautiful Milano was even greater because of it. To sum up, THANK YOU for sharing your work, determinations, your style and looks, the enthusiasm…well, thank you for being YOU!
    Regards from Bucharest!

  • Potrebbe essere un bell’outfit ma non per la tua età. Trovo che invecchi un po’
    Nell’insieme è bello ma boccio il cappello… Anche se fa freddo 😉

    I love your outfit, especially the trousers, but did you really go to a business meeting wearing a ring that appears to read “f*ck.,.”

  • Mi piace moltissimo! I pantaloni in particolare sono molto eleganti e adatti a un ‘occasione un po’ “formale”. L’unica cosa che avrei evitato è la berretta, che mi piace e ti sta benissimo, ma trovo che non si sposi con il resto dell’outfit 🙂


    Reply to Talita Marie
  • That bag has been in my dreams some time already.. Now I want to have it in my bag collection even more 😀 Lovely outfit!
