I don’t want too much for xmas, there is just one thing I need,
I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree,
I just want you for my own, more than you will ever know
Make my wish come true o oh, all I want for xmas is you! 💙
_All I want for Christmas, Mariah Carey
The winter is a beautiful season because of xmas! The Christmas season is all about love and giving. My xmas wishlist is becoming a long one, because of all the daily luxury in the boutiques around Christmas time. Beautiful beige Choos with rhinestones, Tiffany and co bracelet with a cute turquoise heart, Liu Jo down jacket from Les Plumes collection, cashmere knitwear by Repeat Cashmere or Choo, lovely lingerie (Intimissimi, Victoria’s Secret, La Perla), Dior sorbet cream, macarons, coffee table books…
I love the xmas song by Mariah Carey, and though all I want for xmas is you… I do like to have all the daily luxury on my dream list, too (I’m sorry 🌺). Merry xmas and may all your wishes come true!
A day at home sleeping and dreaming is a beautiful daily luxury and can be sometimes all you need 💙. For a sleepy day at home these are my daily luxuries: illy cappuccino, croissants, fresh berries, beautiful lace lingerie in light blue or turquoise (La Perla, Intimissimi, Victoria’s secret), a long, warm bath, Dior nude and sorbet cream, Acqua di Parma, mini dresses in white or beige, a warm cashmere or knit sweater (Repeat Cashmere, Liu jo, Twin-Set, Patrizia Pepe), a lovely and cosy bed (Zara home, Riviera maison), a mozzarella or burrata salad and pizza, the Vogue Italia, España or Paris, my Nicky Bianca blog, Pinterest, listening to my music (Aaliyah), reading my books (from Maya Angelou and F. Scott Fitzgerald), watching my favorite movies (The Great Gatsby). A sleepy day at home can make all the difference in the world. Dream and love all the daily luxuries in your life 💙.
This winter is going to be a cool season. The beautiful winter luxuries that are in store now make you forget about summer and long for the snow. My wishlist of winter luxuries is a long one. First of all, I would love to have the lovely, winter beige Choo high top trainers and beautiful, black Valentino boots with decorative studs (Valentino, Choo, Shoebaloo). A beautiful backpack or bucket bag are the coolest bags of the season (Valentino, Liu jo, Patrizia Pepe, Paul Warmer). Secondly, the lovely Liu jo jeans and the Liu jo down jackets from the Les Plumes collection are beautiful basic items for all your winter looks (Liu jo). The warm and comfy cashmere dresses and sweaters in winter white and lovely beige are essential winter luxuries (Repeat Cashmere, Liu jo, MaxMara, Twin-Set, Patrizia Pepe). For beautiful, dewy skin you need the delicious soft Dior sorbet cream and Dior serum sorbet against the winter cold. A lovely winter makeup in beige and brown tones, inspired by the nineties look, can be created by a little Dior nude air foundation, Dior bronzer and the Dior sunkissed nailpolish (Dior).
Even though the summer has ended, you can still wear your lovely summer dresses, skirts and tops with a denim or leather jacket in the in between season. You can wear those beautiful winter cashmere dresses with bare legs, or a soft tee and Liu jo jeans with a down jacket. The in between season is very cool, as you can wear both summer and winter items in lovely combinations, and be inspired by both the winter collections that are in store now and the spring collections on the runway in New York, Milan and Paris. It is the best of all seasons 🌺. These are beautiful daily luxuries for the cool season to come 💙.
As the summer is ending, you need some beautiful knitwear to keep you comfy and warm in the days towards winter. Don’t feel sad about the ending of summer and enjoy the in between season by wearing beautiful beige and winter white in a delicious mix of soft cashmere, cotton, silk and denim. The winter season is coming, and you need to invest in warm, soothing winter basics. The winter collections are beautiful, from the beige cashmere and silk dresses from Patrizia Pepe (www.patriziapepe.it), the warm and chique overcoats from Max Mara (www.maxmara.it), and the soft sweaters from Twin-Set (www.twinset.it) and Repeat Cashmere (www.repeatcashmere.com). Wear this lovely warm knitwear with your favorite Liu jo jeans (www.liujo.it), and beige Choo’s, Acquazurra, Burberry or Valentino heels. Those are the winter luxuries you need for chique days running around town or comfy days at home. Be warm and fluffy 🌺
So while the summer is coming to an end, a feeling of summer sadness comes to me. As the schools are welcoming back the kids, offices are back in running again, and the memories of summer vacations fade away, the summer season seems to be over again. Before you know it, you are in school again or back in the office, back in the daily rhythm of life. Don’t give up on the cool summer feeling, though, this easy-like-Sunday-morning-sitting-on-the-dock-of-the-bay kind of feeling. The summer days are not over yet, and need to be spent near the sea, on the beach, and in the city parks. When the days are still warm and the evenings are becoming cool and crisp, you can still wear a lovely tee dress with a denim or leather jacket (Liu jo, Armani Jeans, Nolita), a warm cashmere knit dress over bare legs (Patrizia Pepe, Repeat Cashmere, Twin-Set), or beautiful Liu jo jeans with an off shoulder sweater (Liu jo, Maje). Enjoy an ice cream and late summer dinners on the beach. I feel a little comforted by the beautiful fall and winter collections that this feeling of summer sadness will pass, and make way for excitement for the cool season to come 💙.
Do you know how to create a beautiful style that is one in a million? Try to create a basic collection of beautiful daily luxuries that you love💙🌺. So how do you choose these daily luxuries and how do you create your own style?
💙 A collection is a personal investment. Try to invest in beautiful items that will become your new favorite jeans, the softest knitwear and tees that you want to wear all day, and those shoes that you don’t want to take off anymore. It is a little bit like Italian cooking, because you only need a few basic ingredients from the best quality to make a perfect pizza margherita or caprese salad. Create a beautiful collection that is based on your favorite daily luxuries, for example lovely Liu jo jeans, Choo’s for chique days and nights, and soft knitwear and tops from Patrizia pepe, Twin-set and Repeat Cashmere.
💙 Imitatio and aemulatio. Base your beautiful summer and winter collections on daily luxuries that you love. Create a collection of basic and beautiful pieces. You can find these timeless items by following your intuition and inner style. Yes, you got it from your mama, too 💙🌺. Which clothes do you love in magazines and in fashion blogs? Is it the combination of classic and cool? Then you can upgrade your beautiful Liu jo jeans with a cashmere top and heels, or you can wear your lovely knit dress with a denim jacket to dress it down. Try to find the style you love, and do better by creating your own.
💙 Mix it up. Combine beautiful items and create a classy and cool look. You can wear your favorite daily luxuries in numerous ways and styles. Combine classic and casual items, different textures like denim and cashmere, and create a calm ton-sur-ton look or mix beautiful colour combinations like beige and blue.
These beautiful daily luxuries will keep you warm during the cold winter days! Cashmere knitted dresses, hats and gloves in beige, beautiful blue boyfriend jeans, and soft white basics with lace details are all you need for a comfy winter. Oh and you need a warm winter jacket, the new khaki Uggs or timeless booties and a leather bag to finish your outfit.
