Did you know animal sounds are different in Italian than they are in English?
Our "Cock-a-doodle-doo" is "Chicchirichí."
"Ribit Ribit" is "Cra Cra."
"Woof Woof" becomes "Bau Bau."
But Old McDonald can rest assured, there's still one sound that's universally recognized.
And in Italy, "Moo Moos" are MUCH more than a cattle call. They are the statement of all fashion statements. Those bold, floral dresses in dozens of patterns but usually only one size: LARGE.
The Mumuu is becoming more and more appealing to me, ever since I entered into my second quarter of life. It take the guess work out of fashion. It's versatile and airy. It can go from the farm to the market to a Sunday luncheon with ease. No one blinks an eye.
My nonna shares my love for the Mumuu. Here she is donning her brand new blue and pink number.
And this is one of my favorite Mumuu from the bus in Ischia. Of course, Mumuu should be accessorized appropriately: a scrunchie, and slip-on clogs (with socks).
Email me any worthy Mumuu you come across. They just may end up as my "Mumuu of the Month."
