Summer blues ๐Ÿ’™

My daily luxury for June is inspired by summer blues ๐Ÿ’™ 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 ๐Ÿ’™ and my summer wishlist inspired by the ocean blues:

๐Ÿ’™ Tiffany’s cute bracelet with turquoise heart and diamond earrings.

๐Ÿ’™ Lovely white lace dress from Liu Jo, Patrizia Pepe, Sea, No. 21, andย Anjuna.

๐Ÿ’™ Delicate turquoise lace lingerie from Andres Sarda, La Perla, and Victoria’s Secret.

๐Ÿ’™ย Choo’s in sand, turquoise havaianas, and embellished uzurii’s.

๐Ÿ’™ I love anything coco from Kopari’s beauty collection based on organic coconut oil.

๐Ÿ’™ย For my white and turquoise beach home: the supersoft summer home collection Evasion by Yves Delorme.

Dior Cruise Collection 2018ย 

The Dior Cruise Collection 2018 by Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired by heritage. The collection was presented on May 12 in a native-Indian reserve in the hills near Santa Monica. Dior Cruise 2018 is a beautiful collection made of delicately embroidered dresses in white, beige and earthy tones, with cave art drawings, flowers and written words. Chiuri’s first resort collection for the Dior Sauvage woman mixed tradition and world heritage with alta moda, femininity, city chique and even sport. 

The Fashion Guitar shows how to wear a beautiful Dior dress from the Cruise collection with a cool Dior bag and slingbacks for a day on the beach ๐Ÿ’™. My daily luxury for the summer is inspired by Dior’s Cruise Collection: a long dress in tule or lace by Dior or Liu Jo, small Lockette bag in sand by Choo, turquoise jewelry by Tiffany and co, and Dior’s essential s/s make-up collection in white, sand and coral.

Daily luxury_May ๐Ÿ’™

May is a beautiful month ๐Ÿ’™. Dreams of love and sweetness come to me like the turquoise sea caresses the white sandy beaches. Let’s go with the waves and start a new adventure! Do something beautiful that will make your soul happy. Leave on a trip to Bali, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Capri, learn a new language, learn to dive, swim in the blue sea, follow your dreams and intuition, write, collect photos, and love your life on a daily basis ๐Ÿ’™. A little daily luxury in your life is a sweet memory to collect. It can be anything; a beautiful day on the beach, a cute bracelet with turquoise heart or diamant earrings from Tiffany’s, dolci, white orchids, lovely white Liu Jo dress, beige Choo’s, the sunshine through palm leafs, ly’s and hugs from family, seeing Disney’s Moana another time…๐Ÿ’™ Dream and love the daily luxury in your life.

miamii ayay ๐Ÿ’™

Miamii beach is a beautiful place for ocean souls, to escape the winter blues for tropical temperatures, to explore the white sandy beaches, and to swim in the turquoise blue ocean๐Ÿ’™. So go with the waves to beautiful Miamii and explore all the lovely beaches, island adventures, and tropical flora and fauna that this city on the beach has to offer. The only daily luxury you’ll need in your suitcase is a bikini and havaianas.

๐Ÿ’™ A day on the beach: you can find beautiful beaches in Sunny Isles with oceanside boutique hotels, chique spas and dream apartments like Jade Ocean. In South Beach you can photograph all the colourful beach houses along the coast, enjoy a chique lunch at Nikki beach, and take a bike ride through the art deco district, to the islands on the Venetian Causeway or cycle all the way to Key Biscayne. Secondly, you can go to the tropical Miami keys (try a key lime pie) and beautiful Naples on the Gulf of Mexico (visit sea turtles on Marco island or collect seashells on Sanibel island). 

My daily luxury: a turquoise bikini from Victoria’s Secret (in photo), Kopari‘s organic coconut oil is essential to hydrate summer beauties’ hair, skin and sandy feet, Dior Bronze will give you sun protection and a delicious scent, a Bkr water bottle and Fiji water will keep you cool and hydrated from within. 

๐Ÿ’™ Shopping: you can find beautiful shops in Aventura mall, South Miami Beach, and the Japanese inspired outdoor mall the Falls (with Japanese gardens and waterfalls). Also Naples is a chique place to shop. I love the spring-summer collections in white, sand and blue, for example Dream Angels lovely lace lingerie from Victoria’s Secret, knit dresses by Michael Kors, white macramรฉ summer dresses by Twin-Set, striped “Ocean Soul” top (in photo) and white macramรฉ tops by Patrizia Pepe, Liu Jo‘s white and blue denim collection (see mini skirt in photo), cotton off shoulder tops by Sea NY, and customized havaianas

๐Ÿ’™ Daily luxury_food: another thing you need to try in Miamii is the South-American cuisine, the avocado spring rolls and Luau salad from the Cheesecake Factory, and a coconut milk cappuccino. Try these nice restaurants, too: oceanside Nikki Beach, brunch at Sense beach house, sushi at Samurai, Italian at George’s, Cuban at Bongo’s.

๐Ÿ’™ Beautiful places to go on an adventure outside of Miami are the Keys, Naples, and the Bahamas. Secondly, you can visit the Disney resorts, Seaworld and Universal Studios in Orlando.

Dream and love the daily luxury in your life ๐Ÿ’™ For daily luxury, moda and beautiful places, you can follow me on www.nickybianca.com and www.pinterest.com/nicky_bianca/.

Daily luxury_Februaryย 

In February the winter season is (hopefully) coming to an end, and the boutiques will be filled with the new spring and summer collections. My daily luxury and inspiration for February:

๐Ÿ’™ The Vogue Espaรฑa, Italia and Paris have always been a source of inspiration for me. At the moment, you can find the new collections on the runway for fall/winter 2017-2018. If you feel like I do and long for the summer and spring, you can find beautiful inspiration from the s/s 2017 collections in Vogue, for example the white macramรฉ dresses from Oscar de la Renta.

๐Ÿ’™I love these beautiful blogs for my daily inspiration of fashion and daily luxury: A Bikini a Day, the Fashion Guitar, Theyallhateus, Damsel in Dior, the Blonde Salad, the Fashion Fruit, Olivia Palermo, the Zoe Report, Oraclefox. Am I missing one that you love?

๐Ÿ’™ I love the Choo collection for spring and summer 2017! Creative director Sandra Choi has created a beautiful collection of Choos and bags with an inimitable sense of style, for example the cute Rebel soft mini bag and suede Choo trainers with big rhinestones in sand.

๐Ÿ’™ The Liu Jo collection for spring and summer 2017 features daily chique items in dark blue, white and beige, for example Liu Jo’s Divine bottom up jeans and white lace top.

๐Ÿ’™ Lovely lace lingerie by Intimissimi, La Perla and Victoria’s Secret.

๐Ÿ’™ Dior sorbet cream, hydralife serum sorbet and Dior Nude in sand will hydrate and replenish your face, and gives a beautiful glow and dewy skin. Secondly, if you cleanse your face with the sensitive Dior cleansing foam together with the Foreo, you will have a more beautiful looking skin than ever before! Available in the online boutique Douglas.

๐Ÿ’™ Create a beautiful summer home in white, blue and beige, even in the winter, with the  handmade collection in wood, teak and rattan from home and living boutique from the Netherlands Riviera Maison, inspired by beachy places like Sanible island.

๐Ÿ’™ February mood: if it doesn’t feel like 90’s RnB, I don’t want it.

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 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 Obicร , 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 cittร  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 Caffรจ Gilli, visit the Liu jo store, visit il giardino di Boboli, try the mezzelune pasta at Fuori Porta, and pizza a taglio at Pugi.

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 Secret and Intimissimi 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!

Liu Jo s/s collection 2016

Liu Jo’s spring-summer collection 2016 is beautiful and cool ๐Ÿ’™.

The safari chic essentials in white, khaki and beige combine beautifully with the Liu Jo denim collection. For example, the white macramรฉ and cotton shirts with lace on a white, khaki or beige embellished Liu jo jeans or denim skirt is lovely for a khaki spring. Don’t forget to bring your Liu jo backpack in soft beige leather to complete your city safari.

Since 2008, the beautiful Liu Jo jeans have been an essential daily luxury for my summer and winter collection. Liu Jo’s denim collection becomes even more beautiful each year and seems custom made for me due to the small and comfortable fit. The sexy, low waist fabulous denim jeans with a light shimmer, the lovely white denim skirt and dark blue denim jacket with embellisments; that’s my Liu Jo denim for the spring and summer season ๐ŸŒบ.
