Summer blues πŸ’™

My daily luxury for June is inspired by summer blues 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, andΒ Anjuna.

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

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

Daily luxury_May πŸ’™

May is a beautiful month πŸ’™. 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 πŸ’™. 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…πŸ’™ Dream and love the daily luxury in your life.

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, 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.

πŸ’™ 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. 

πŸ’™ 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 macramΓ© summer dresses by Twin-Set, striped “Ocean Soul” top (in photo) and white macramΓ© 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

πŸ’™ 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.

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.

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

Daily luxury_FebruaryΒ 

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:

πŸ’™ The Vogue EspaΓ±a, 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 macramΓ© dresses from Oscar de la Renta.

πŸ’™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?

πŸ’™ 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.

πŸ’™ 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.

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

πŸ’™ 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.

πŸ’™ 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.

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

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!

Daily luxury_lingerie

For a sleepy day at home, lovely lingerie is an essential daily luxury. I love the lingerie from Intimissimi, La Perla and Victoria’s Secret, because it is available in my favorite colors turquoise and blue in beautiful lace, and has a good and comfortable fit in small and medium sizes. Lovely lingerie and lace is an essential spring/summer trend for 2016, for example the slipdress, as seen in the cool collections by Balenciaga, Courrges, Burberry, and Vera Wang. Beautiful details, soft lace and a comfortable fit are essential. Since many women are still looking for their perfect fit, it may be a good idea to be measured for example by Victoria’s secret to find the good size for you. Don’t worry, because you can find beautiful lingerie in any size, from a 70D to a 70AA. The lingerie from the online boutique ThirdLove even comes in half sizes, and offers a good and comfortable fit for all women and a solution for all their bra-blems. For example, when your bra has some slipping straps, you need to tighten them every time or consider another model like a demi or semi-bra or one with convertible straps. When you have a little side boob or even a quad boob, you may need to try a bigger cup size with a small bandside, for example instead of a 75C, you may need a 70D (for more tips and solutions, visit the online boutique).

Summer lace

On a beautiful summer day the only daily luxuries you need are ice creams, watermelon and summer lace πŸ’™πŸŒΊπŸ‰. Soft summer lace, in white, beige and blue, is an essential summer luxury for sensuous days. Summer lace makes you feel sensual, cool and comfy and looks beautiful at home, on the beach, and in the city. For sleepy days at home you can wear beautiful lace lingerie in white, blue and turquoise (La Perla, Intimissimi and Victoria’s secret). The lovely off shoulder tops and knit dresses are this summer’s essentials for beachy days and chique days running around town (Isabel Marant, Maje, Liu jo, Pinko, Patrizia pepe, Twin-set). Summer lace is beautiful on bare skin and looks romantic and chic. Wear your hair down and take someone’s breath away with your lovely summer look πŸ’™πŸŒΊ.
