Il dolce far niente in Italy ๐Ÿ’™ย 

Il dolce far niente in Italy ๐Ÿ’™ 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 daysย 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’amoreย 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:

๐Ÿ’™ 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 Rinascenteย 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. Ilย dolce far niente: you can sit on the rooftop of il Duomo to read a book and enjoy the view, visit Armani Casaย for some home inspiration, taste the delicious mozzarella dishes and pizzas at mozzarella bar Obicร , and try all the icecream you can find in Como.

๐Ÿ’™ 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 exampleย Liu Jo, Patrizia Pepe, Intimissimi, andย Atos Lombardini.ย 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.

๐Ÿ’™ La bella cittร  di moda_ Firenze is a beautiful city and home to many boutiques, musea, and restaurants.ย In Via Roma, Via dei Calzaiuoli, Viaย de’ Tornabuoni and Piazza della Repubblica, you will find the boutiques fromย Liu Jo,ย Tiffany and co, Luisa via Roma, Patrizia Pepe,ย Fratelli Rosetti, la Rinascente, and you can visit the Gucci museo.ย il dolce far niente: drink a cappuccino or cioccolato at Caffรจ Gilli, visit the Liu jo store, visitย il giardino diย 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 ร  la Olivia Palermo. Lovely lace lingerie in white, blue and soft turquoise by Victoria’s Secretย andย Intimissimiย will look beautiful on bare shoulders. Secondly, a cotton off shoulder dress by Thakoon or Chloรฉ is both beautiful and cool ๐Ÿ’™. 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!

Nuit en blanc

Dressed in white for a midsummer night, a dรฎner en blanc, or a lovely summer sunset, feels beautiful and chique ๐Ÿ’™. Spanish or chantilly lace looks beautiful on bare skin, paired with nude Valentino heelsย or white Choo’s. Lovely lace dresses are essential summer pieces, for example in the spring-summer collections by Valentino, Burberry and Chloรฉ. Secondly, an embellished white dress is an essential daily luxury on summer days, for example by Altuzzara. Another white dress that is very en vogue is the silk slipdress, inspired by lingerie and nineties coolness (Balenciaga, Courrges, The Row). Lastly, with a minimalist mini dress with long sleeves, you can wear a beautiful clutch and embellished heels by Choo or Acquazzura,ย showing long tan legs. And for your man? He needs a classic white tuxedo jacket, black trousers and classy Choo’s for Cuban vibes.

The safari chic essentials in white, khaki and beige combine beautifully with the Liu Jo denim collection.

Coco Chanel in Havana, Cuba ๐ŸŒบ

May 3, 2016, Havana, Cuba. While Cuba is opening its turquoise doors to the world, the beautiful island invited not only Obama, the first American President to come to Cuba since 1928, but also the world of ‘moda y lujo’ to enter the colourful and vibrant capital city Havana. In the Paseo del Prado, set between the palm trees and Cuban casas, the street has become a runway for the Chanel cruise collection 2017. In a beautiful mix of old and new, the past and the present, the Chanel couture collection meets the classic imperial style of Cuba. With the Panama hats, coloured tweed jackets and midi skirts, the Chanel cruise collection 2017 is clearly inspired by Cuban history. While the masculine trousers, tweed jackets and midi skirts in the cruise collection are quintessential to Chanel, the colourful tweed in lime, coral, blue and colonial white, tropical prints and ‘Viva Coco libre’-shirts have been inspired by the Cuban setting.
