Summer blue πŸ’™

My daily luxury for June is inspired by summer blue πŸ’™ by my dream to see the blue waterfalls, turquoise sea and white and black beaches in Maui, Hawaii, and by the beautiful aquamarine and diamants bracelet from Tiffany’s Blue Book inspired by the ocean. I’ll be on the seaside in my beautiful white Liu Jo dress and havaianas, in the city with my favorite Liu jo jeans and Choo’s in sand, or I’ll be home dreaming about Maui πŸ’™ and my summer wishlist inspired by the ocean blues:

πŸ’™ Tiffany’s cute bracelet with turquoise heart and diamond earrings.

πŸ’™ Lovely white lace dress from Liu Jo, Patrizia Pepe, Sea, No. 21, and Anjuna.

πŸ’™ Delicate turquoise lace lingerie from Andres Sarda, La Perla, and Victoria’s Secret.

πŸ’™ Choo’s in sand, turquoise havaianas, and embellished uzurii’s.

πŸ’™ I love anything coco from Kopari’s beauty collection based on organic coconut oil.

πŸ’™ For my white and turquoise beach home: the supersoft summer home collection Evasion by Yves Delorme.

Il dolce far niente in Italy πŸ’™Β 

Il dolce far niente in Italy πŸ’™ beautiful places in Italy to be lazy_

il-dolce-far-niente-in-italy

I don’t know about you, but sometimes, between summer sadness and winter blues, I need some days to sleep and chill a little. Some lazy days in a beautiful place in Italy would be a good idea! In Italy, il dolce far niente, the sweetness of doing nothing, is a lifestyle. It is about living on a Mediterranean rhythm and loving the daily luxury in your life. The daily rituals have become a form of art in Italy, from a beautiful pizza margherita, the perfect cappuccino to raspberry icecream, from spending time with family, l’amore to dressing well. La dolce vita is celebrated in the little streets, boutiques, restaurants and homes of each Italian city. These are beautiful places in Italy to be a little lazy:

  1. Milano and il lago di Como. Even though Milano is known as a busy city, it is a nice place to visit the beautiful white Duomo, and to shop in the monumental Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, la Rinascente and in Via Montenapoleone. For a day away from busy Milano, you need to go to Como at only half an hour distance. The view over il lago di Como is beautiful and you can go to romantic places across the lake, like Bellagio. Il dolce far niente: you can sit on the rooftop of il Duomo to read a book and enjoy the view, visit Armani Casa for some home inspiration, taste the delicious mozzarella dishes and pizzas at mozzarella bar ObicΓ , and try all the icecream you can find in Como.
  2. The lovely, little places on the 1920s beach in Viareggio all have nice entrances with wooden names. This is where the local Italian families go for a day on the beach. The place has a sweet scent that comes from the orange and pine trees. Along the seaside you will find the chique boutiques from for example Liu Jo, Patrizia Pepe, Intimissimi, and Atos Lombardini. In a two hour walk along the sea, you can go to Forte dei Marmi, another lovely coastal town in Lucca, Toscane. il dolce far niente: don’t miss all the boutiques in Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, go to a spa, and try all the icecream at gelateria Grom.
  3. La bella cittΓ  di moda_ Firenze is a beautiful city and home to many boutiques, musea, and restaurants. In Via Roma, Via dei Calzaiuoli, Via de’ Tornabuoni and Piazza della Repubblica, you will find the boutiques from Liu JoTiffany and co, Luisa via Roma, Patrizia PepeFratelli Rosetti, la Rinascente, and you can visit the Gucci museoil dolce far niente: drink a cappuccino or cioccolato at CaffΓ¨ Gilli, visit the Liu jo store, visit il giardino di Boboli, try the mezzelune pasta at Fuori Porta, and pizza a taglio at Pugi.

Fendi, Fontana di Trevi, luglio 2016

In a beautiful setting, at the renovated Fontana di Trevi in Rome, Fendi celebrated its ninetieth anniversary. The love story between Fendi and Rome has its origins in 1926. As an homage to the ancient city, Fendi has invested in the restoration of the Trevi fountain (Fendi for Fountains). The Trevi fountain, loved for the classic scene in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, is a symbol of Italian civilization, culture and architecture. At the beautiful event at the Trevi fountain, the piazza, filled with the world of moda e lusso, hushed at the sight of Fendi’s collection of fairy tales and legends. The collection by Fendi was a storybook, and each piece had its own story to tell. As made for a princess, the long, flowy dresses were embroidered with flowers and fairies. Come un sogno, the Fendi collection was like a dream. The only link to the cool daywear collection by Fendi, besides the creativity and craftmanship, were the carefully crafted bags (like the monster bags by Fendi). In the online boutique, you can find the inimitable collections by Fendi.

Daily luxury s/s 2016: off shoulder

An essential daily luxury for the summer is definitely the off shoulder dress or top. 

A beautiful blue (Sea), striped (Patrizia Pepe) or cool white off shouder top (Liu Jo, Tibi) in soft cotton on a dark blue denim Liu jo jeans creates a casual-chique outfit Γ  la Olivia Palermo. Lovely lace lingerie in white, blue and soft turquoise by Victoria’s Secret and Intimissimi will look beautiful on bare shoulders. Secondly, a cotton off shoulder dress by Thakoon or ChloΓ© is both beautiful and cool πŸ’™. A soft cotton dress or top with bare shoulders has a beautiful and casual look, as it looks both dressed and a little sexy. You can wear your beautiful heels by Choo or Valentino, and still look casual, or dress it down with espadrilles, sandals or Choo trainers. You can’t miss with this summer essential!

Choo s/s collection 2016 πŸ’™

Choo’s spring-summer collection is beautiful, tropical and cool πŸ’™. Creative director Sandra Choi has created a beautiful collection for summer days and tropical temperatures. The summer collection was inspired by California, reminding me of a song by Aaliyah. And like her lyrics_hotter than a summer day in California_ the lovely palm printed Ava bag, light khaki trainers and Choo sunglasses with flowers _got me melting like a sundae. Another beautiful piece of the Choo summer collection is the limited edition palm printed Lockett petite bag in khaki and is _one in a million.
