Front Window, Valletta, Malta

Visiting Malta at the begining of October, I found myself spending a day wandering in the charming
streets of its capital, Valletta.
The day being a Sunday, everything was nearly closed. The town seems only inhabited by tourists strolling around, all the museums and churches were closed too, that was the only thing to do. We spend a long time watching passers-by, which is an extremely interesting activity that I would like to do more.
I found the front windows of Valletta really interesting, and here is a little selection of the one I liked.
( sorry for the quality of the pictures is not great, I was so lazy and didn't edit them !!)

This accumulation of wooden balcony is just so cute !!

A Stylish Lady

Browsing on Internet can be such a curious process.
I really enjoy "researching" the Web. A link, a picture can lead you from a subject to another, and in an hour you will be reading an article, or looking at a video which had nothing to do with your former research. And them discover a total new world (I think I'm slightly exaggerating there haha).
Well mine started on checking the graduate show of the Antwerp Fashion Academy. I won't go through all the "in-between" links and articles that led me to discover the style of one particular lady.
Cassandra Struthers could be in line with all the beautiful stylish character that you can find on the blog Advanced style. Well I was straight away attracted by her sense of dressing. I felt recognizing a bit of 30s, minimalism, natural fabrics, boyish style, a bit on the explorer side. 
She will definitely have a special folder in my virtual library.
You can find a lot of her outfit in her own blog, or in the lovely one of her daughter. Both of them seems to have a great relationship, and India Alexandra shares their wanderings through exquisite places in London, on her blog See The Sparkle.
Here a is a few pictures I could find. I hope you will appreciate them.

Lost in Ostia Antica

With your tube ticket you can take a 30 min train from Pyramide station, to get to Ostia Antica ! The ruin of an antic city. You can get lost, like really lost, in the ancient Roman bath, house, pillars, etc. It's lovely to have a picnic there. Not far from Ostia Antics you can find Lido de Ostia, which is the beach !!! But don't do like us, that thought we could reach in 10 min, the sea, from Ostia Antica. We walked on the side of a rather high speed road, under the burning sun. We end up jumping on a bus, the driver said "don't buy a ticket, it's just 4 stop to the Lido !". Hahah ok.
Being on the beach was so nice !!! You have to walk a bit before you'll find a public beach, as most of them are private. The water was too cold, to swim completely, but just lying in the sand ! Then we walked in this cute seaside town, and had an amazing ice cream !! I felt summer ! Of course you can find better looking seaside place in Italy, but this one is so easy to go to from Rome. It's really convenient.
