ALL ABOUT MY WEEKEND IN PARIS WITH OTTERBOX

       

I am back in Amsterdam for a few weeks before my next trip to Italy, after spending the most amazing and fun weekend in Paris with OtterBox together with my bestie Lorna and another dozen of fellow lovely bloggers.

   

I’ve been working with OtterBox for almost a year now and I was very excited to finally meet the marketing team in person and they proved to be even more lovely! I was so proud to find this out since it’s really important to me to truly love the products and company I suggest you guys. It’s part of my integrity and will always be a fundamental part of my work ethic in my blogging career.

OtterBox took us to Paris for their Symmetry Street event. It took place at Le Pavillon des Canaux. You must take a look at it, in case you missed my Instagram Stories.. People having brunch in a bath tub, my Chanel blending in a completely red room or groups hanging out in a baby-room-look-a-like bed.. It was the craziest and cutest location ever to host a party.

             

The Symmetry Street event was all about street style and street art! Star of the day was the artist Raphael Federici creating and showcasing his charm artwork on a wall made of phone cases (how cool is that!). Everyone could enjoy themselves getting creative decorating their own case or just sipping a drink by the river. Guess what was my choice! 😉

It was the perfect Sunday in Paris with the most wonderful company.

BACK TO SCHOOL.. LONDON AND PARIS!

chanel-designer-vintage-back-to-school-lfw-fall-fashion-publicdesire-dricoper-Xlevis-triwa-thpshop  

The summer is officially over and fall always brings fresh starts and new beginnings (a bit like starting a new diet on a Monday, but it’s actually happening!)..

The weather still allows us to wear lightweight layers but the colours are already darken up. It’s time to introduce rich tones like burgundy, metallic accents and blazers becomes our best friends.. But this doesn’t mean we have to give up our statement t-shirts, ripped denim, and yellow accessories. Not just yet.  #favouriteseason!!

  chanel-designer-vintage-back-to-school-lfw-fall-fashion-publicdesire-dricoper-Xlevis-triwa-thpshop  

Who said that back-to-school was only for the kids?

New beginnings and new plans always bring positive energy! A good vibe comes hand-in-hand with new inspiration and for me this i all translating into new projects in the coming months.

Emma started daycare last week and when they say, it’s more emotional for the mother than the child.. Nothing is more true! Good news is that she’s loving it! Not a tear, not sad faces, just an exciting new phase. But someone else is going back to class.. Me! End of this month will bring to the city a new dutch speaker.. ermm, at least I am going to give it a go! Let’s see about this one..

Last but not least, with the ‘duties’ comes the fun too! From next weekend will be all about fashion and fashionista friends! Flight to London booked to spend a long weekend with my bestie Lorna for fashion week then together off to Paris the weekend after! Expect shows, presentations, meetings, shoots, dinner and events!

September is going to be fabulous!

EVERYTHING ABOUT MY SUMMER HOLIDAYS IN ITALY

Having said about a billion times how much I love summer, you can only imagine the joy of taking Emma for a month to Italy to the places where I grew up! It’s my favourite time of the year and I love that Ravenna offers so many different beach clubs and places to hang out just a quick car ride away from each other. From the ones we prefer to go only for dinner or aperitivo, to the more relaxed ones where we’ve been spending our days to nights.

If you are following me on Instagram (@nickyinsideout) and snap chat (username: nickyinsideout) you have seen my day to day life already.. but this time I wanted to take the chance of also showing you my favourite places (in case you will want to head there on holiday some day) along with what I’ve been wearing..

Because, as a blogger, a holiday is never a real holiday (I mean no phone, no emails.. not happening!) I needed extra protection for my beloved iPhone to survive its 24/7 shift and I opted for 2 different phone cases from OtterBox this time!

So yes, take a pick at my favourite spots, and outfits to go with it, and I hope to see you there one summer day!!

  Il Baretto – Marina Romea (Ravenna). A drink on the sand, with good music under the sky. We like to come here to spend some good time with friends where the atmosphere is really chilled out and you don’t need a change of clothes after a day at the beach. baretto-marina-romea-beach-club-hoodie-Italy-laura-gravestock- nicole-vienna-onepiece-otterbox-phone-case-summer   baretto-marina-romea-beach-club-hoodie-Italy-laura-gravestock- nicole-vienna-onepiece-otterbox-phone-case-summer-balenciaga   baretto-marina-romea-beach-club-hoodie-Italy-laura-gravestock- nicole-vienna-onepiece-otterbox-phone-case-summer-balenciaga-rayban   baretto-marina-romea-beach-club-hoodie-Italy-laura-gravestock- nicole-vienna-onepiece-otterbox-phone-case-summer-balenciaga   baretto-marina-romea-beach-club-hoodie-Italy-laura-gravestock- nicole-vienna-onepiece-otterbox-phone-case-summer-balenciaga   Cala Celeste – Lido Adriano (Ravenna).  Cutest location to spend another day at the beach which can end into a more intimate dinner by the sea. The restaurant offers a more original and sophisticated menu. The location is amazing and having dinner few meters away from the seaside is priceless.   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   beach-club--Elliot-Mann-Italy-laura-gravestock--nicole-vienna-otterbox-phone-case-summer--Ana-Alcazar-cala-celeste-lido-adriano   Sol y Mar – Riccione. It’s a small cozy restaurant on the beach. Great ambience and adorable atmosphere, original menu and on-the-beach seating.

MY FIRST SUMMER AS A MOM: MY WINNING FORMULA DURING BEACH LIFE SEASON

beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers   beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers  

Hello and happy Saturday! I hope you are having a wonderful beginning of summer!

I know, I’ve been MIA from the blog the last couple of weeks.. but if you’ve been Insta and Snapchat stalking me, you’ve seen I’ve been (and still am) enjoying the beach life in Italy with little Emma and my family.

It’s the first summer as a new mom and there’s nothing calm and relaxing about taking a baby to the beach everyday.. but I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world and when Emma takes her daily naps I am still able to enjoy some quietness 🙂

  beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers   beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers  

The boiling hot weather hit us, (I am referring to Italy, not Holland.. Uh!) and I couldn’t wait to wear my bikini one piece as per this summer 2016 Vogue lessons -done my homework 😉 What I am really enjoying these days (apart from sand castle making, first attempts to walk and shells picking) is tanning in the shade with a high protection, one piece swimwear, shirt dresses and my jewellery.. never without my jewellery..

  beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers   beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers   beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers  

Layered over a fresh shirt dress and silk top, the perfect finishing touch is this Firma collection from Ellie Air. Dainty fine jewellery in gold and diamonds, with a contemporary design and understated look that screams chicness and quality.

Tipically, I wear a lot of gold jewellery and at the moment, I like mixing up gold and silver pieces.. timeless, minimalistic and wearable while being captivating enough to enhance a simple outfit.

Summer time and beach life is not synonymous of less attention to details and style.

  beach-life-dainty-jewellery-denim-diamonds-Ellie-Air-gold-jewellery-shirt-dress-silver-summer-white-sneakers  

This is coming from someone who tends to dress for comfort all year long, not only when the thermometer passes the thirty degrees. But comfort wearing, in my case, comes hand in hand with pure enjoyment of good life (.. need to make the most of those daily naps, don’t I?!) so pretty beach clubs, pool side and aperitivo with a glass of cold white wine are my passport for the best kind of summer. On a daily basis is preferable!

My winning formula is the following: one piece swimwear, lightweight wear which you can dress up and down according to the daily plan, never compromise on the accessories and jewellery!
