I know you know that I love this jewelry,
waaaay more than that Prada handbag.


photographed at the 

 Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento, Italy
Elle Germany April

Image of Parco dei Principi Hotel, Sorrento

& yes, in spite of the rugged terrain of the cliffs, the surrounding area is
rolling, and verdant green with lots of beautiful trees.

Hotel Parco Dei Principi


loving the sandals with the dress & scarf, so new & so pretty,
another iteration with a nod to the young, who refuse to be uncomfortable.
& maybe it's the location?









what do you think of the outfits?


I recognized the balcony overlooking the Mediterranean in the layout,
and knew at once it was Sorrento.  I've never stayed at this hotel, but it
is not easy to miss when you're there.  Isn't it beautiful?

I could not agree with you more, the jewlery in the first photo is fabulous. I think the outfits for the most part are nice, not really my style but the hotel and the view is SPECTACULAR!

Love Italy!

Have a great week, Elizabeth

I am in love with each of these outfits and the way they are put together. Nothing is as chic as an all white ensemble with white jewelry..ahhhh, just stunning! The backdrops not too shabby either:)
Hope you had a fabulous Mothers day Marsha!

White looks wonderful in a vacation environment such as this. I love the shorts outfit in image well constructed and sophisticated. The necklace in #1 is good looking, but the Prada purse is unremarkable. Italy is fabulous, of course.

It's all so beautiful and sorry Marsha but loving that first Prada bag. Just once though I would love to see the young woman in these pictures smiling, enjoying the fact she's young, in a glamorous location being photographed in stunning things saying look at me I'm lucky! I know if it were me they would have a tough time keeping the smile off my face.

So beautiful, Marsha. A girl can dream.
The landscape here is amazing.
Happy Tuesday.

Love all the white mixed with the blues in the back ground. Looks and feels like vacation. Love the bathing suit.

Love the images nr 1 and 9 - that girl is gorgeous and her outfits are perfect, but, of course, we're talking about white and blue here, the perfect composition in my opinion.
The location is absolutely wonderful.
Happy Tuesday.

You have absolutely made my day today!!! First your message (hooray!) and NOW this amazing post. My goodness gracious. I want to wear all of this while being in Italy, right NOW and yes, I'll be happy to be that thin too!! I think that this post will be my new guidelines for dressing this summer--merci, merci, merci!!!!!

Hi darling. The outfits are lovely. I adore the retro feel, both in the styling and the location. A perfect marriage.

Stunning all round.
