I’ve always wanted to visit Matera and finally I did, dusting off and wearing an old dress from my closet, that perfectly matches the colors of the famous Sassi of the city.

I’ve been waiting to visit the town of Basilicata for a long time. So that’s why me and my boyfriend took the chance to turn an ordinary Sunday into a little getaway to the Capital of Culture. Matera is definitely one of the most beautiful cities in southern Italy: its Sassi and the way in which they are placed are able to make this city one of a kind.

But you can only choose one outfit during a day trip, and that may be a problem, since I’m used to take a good part of my closet with me during travel. It has not been easy to pick just one outfit, until I decided to have a look at some dated items of clothing of mine.

And there a dress bought at Stradivarius four years ago showed up, white and green checkered, basic and fashionable, that I chose to wear with a pair of Pull and Bear’s wedges, that totally recall the colors of the dress (a blessing to have in my shoe rack), together with a pair of earrings, and that’s how I created my loyal traveling outfit, that made feel awesome in the city!
