Mascalzone

Cardigan and capri pants, J.Crew. Shirt, Banana Republic. Flats, Ralph Lauren.

Whenever I wear funky pants (meaning: cropped and in unconventional colors), I am reminded of the Italian word for scoundrel: MASCALZONE. As a self-proclaimed logophile, this word makes my top 100. It has calzone in it. And mascal, which is not a word, but it sure sounds a lot like rascal. If my sister saw me from across the street, prancing about in orange pantaloons, she would call me out on it. "Mascalzone! How dare you?" It makes perfect sense.

You know and use Italian words, too?
You just earned brownie points big time! Great outfit, adorable.

Alessandra: I thought you might have this reaction, but I assure you: my Italian is mostly related to cuisine and wine. Please be less impressed.

How are you not a model for We Love Colors? Or are you? You have such great color in your wardrobe! So many bloggers are saying how they need more color but they always fall back to blacks and grays. They need to take a page from your book. Or, at least a piece from your closet!
Come link up Thursday when I do my happy dance!
