miamii ayay πŸ’™

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 oceanπŸ’™. So go with the waves to beautiful Miamii and explore all the lovely beaches, boutiques, and island adventures that this city on the beach has to offer. The only daily luxury you’ll need in your suitcase is a bikini and havaianas.

πŸ’™ A day on the beach: you can find beautiful beaches in Sunny Isles with oceanside hotels, chique spas and dream apartments like Jade Ocean and Marenas. 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 and to the islands on the Venetian Causeway. 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, 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.

πŸ’™ Shopping: you can find beautiful shops in Aventura mall, South Miami Beach, and the Japanese inspired outdoor mall the Falls. 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,Β cotton off shoulder tops by Sea NY, and customized havaianas.

πŸ’™ Daily luxury_food: another thing you need to try in Miamii is the South-American cuisine.Β Β Try these nice restaurants, too: oceanside Nikki Beach, brunch at Sense beach house, sushi at Samurai, Italian at George’s, Cuban at Bongo’s.

πŸ’™ 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.

Winter luxury πŸ’™

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, MaxMaraTwin-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).

The cool season in NY

The cool season in New York begins with fashion week. The beautiful spring and summer collections on the runway brought a cool and colorful crowd of fashion editors, bloggers and models. The bold and beautiful trends of the season were noticeable in the NY Streets. It is all about denim, high heels and cool bags. And the casual coolness and nonchalance of it all looked a little like New York in the nineties, back in the days.

πŸ’™ The distressed, loose fit, and boyfriend denim jeans are styled with a tee and top (Liu jo jeans, Twin-set, Pinko)

πŸ’™ The mini dresses are cool and comfortable in beautiful shades of blue, white or beige (Maje, Isabel Marant, Twin-Set)

πŸ’™ Blue denim and leather jackets (Armani jeans, Twin-Set)

πŸ’™ The choice of shoes: dress it all down with sneakers or upgrade the casual outfit with colorful high heels (Nike, Choo, Acquazzura, Valentino)

πŸ’™ The colorful, printed bags give a hint of color to blue denim and tees (Dolce & Gabbana, Choo, Valentino)

Love her style πŸŒΊ

Some women own a naturally beautiful style 🌺 You may find them within your family and friends, in magazines, in old movies, in fashion blogs, and in the streets and boutiques of beautiful cities like Barcelona, New York, Milan and Firenze. These beautiful, classy women are truly an inspiration to me. And also the cool kids, models, Brooklyn babies and fashion bloggers inspire me with their casual coolness. I love the mix of classic elements with my own casual and cool style. The new chic is presented by cool and comfy clothes in beautiful silhouettes, soft fabrics and textures. For example, a beige cashmere dress, a soft white tee with a Liu jo jeans and Valentino or Acquazzura heels, a white knit dress from Twin-Set or a beige silk dress from Patrizia Pepe with a denim jacket. A sporty cool style is upgraded by the softest materials and chic designs. While classy pieces are dressed down with a tee, denim and sneaks.

Summer sadness

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 πŸ’™.
