Marni for H&M pencil skirt for some Italian-ness, Zara top, Cos: bucket bag (sort of Givenchy Pandora small without the pricetag).  
Sorry, little focus because my camera needs fixing

I know I will get some raised eyebrows when I said I went to Sicily for business, but the only familia I have are Dutch people so don't worry. I had some time for play and I sure did have a good time. I was amazed because I had not the slightest idea it would be this beautiful and so unlike the other parts of Italy I have been. I told my friend that Sicily is my latest Island-crush (together with Jamaica which I haven't seen since 2011, I have long distance relationships with islands). I will show more photos from it soon.

Sergio, the guy who rented the apartment told me I was lucky with the weather, and I sure was with 24 degrees celcius at daytime. It was good enough for a swim in Mediterranean waters still warm enough to dive in. I finally had the chance to wear my Lisa Marie Fernandez Garance, because I gained a bit of weight on the right places since I bought it (the tatas) so I didn't look too much like Karlie Kloss unedited (link here)

I had a new girlfriend staying over; normally, I'm not into one-night stands, but she won me over with her hungry eyes. She stayed on the couch, though:

She was really affectionate, only a bit rough with her nails.

However, I'm still into men...there were some awefully goodlooking men racing around the island: I literary raced with one of them and he was massively surprised seeing a woman behind the wheel. And if the typical Italian bloke had good sense of dressing up, the Sicilian variety takes it up a notch. So fashion girls, get your new destination booked (ps: I haven't seen many Chiara's around there, but some women were fab dressers as well)

Anyway, it was wonderful!

Some music to accompany with it:
