How to have more time.. to take our time

This morning I woke up aware, aware that time is the biggest luxury and the most important thing we have in our lives. We’re accustomed to living our lives at 100 km an hour: a succession of things, faces, emotions and impulses. We’re in a perpetual vortex. And yet if you really think about it, time is the most precious thing we have: having the luxury to take time that is REALLY for us, in this big countdown that is our lives. Maybe that’s why December and the Christmas period is my favourite time of year. While December is the busiest time of the year between dinners, Christmas events and running around to get gifts, it is also the month during which we allow ourselves to take more time to just live, for ourselves and for others. We have the possibility to share our time with our friends and family, to spend time roaming through stores in search of something special for us and for others. We have time to think about the year that has passed and enjoy the moment. Yes, we have time to take our time.

And that’s how I decided to take these pictures here, in the middle of nature. Nature is my environment of choice when I need a moment to myself. And the good thing is I don’t even have to go far: here we’re at the Parco delle Cascine in Florence: do you know this park? I suggest you make your way here, take a walk surrounded by the trees and the green, orange, red and brown scenery: sit on a bench facing the Arno river and relax for a moment!

For this look I chose something comfortable and warm (without forgetting my new lace-up booties!) with an added touch: the Timex Tonal Collection watch in blue (The dial is also backlit for night time and water-resistant up to 30 meters deep!) Click HERE for the price.

Timex has been creating watches for over 160 years: they designed watches for the American soldiers in World War I, the first watch for women made out of diamonds and even the first Mickey Mouse watch! Today they create over 300 different styles of watches, from casual to chic to sporty. Because time is the most precious thing we have!

How to dress for Halloween: ideas for women! My look!

costume per halloween come vestirsi per halloween (2)

How to dress for Halloween. It’s time for a general rehearsal for Halloween ladies!! Have you already decided what you’ll be doing? Where you’ll be going? Will you be celebrating it or is Halloween not really your thing? For me, it has become a tradition I share with my friends. Ever since we’ve known each other, which has been quite a while now, Halloween has been the evening where we reunite and get in the spirit: tables laden with pumpkins and little ghosts, and little finger food shaped like zombies or vampires. And let’s not forget the costumes. We often went with couple’s costumes: the epic Vampire and Vampiress for Giova and I a few years ago or Devil and Angel. And this year??

How to dress for Halloween: ideas for women! My look!

Let’s begin with this year’s general rehearsal! After sharing my table adorned with pumpkins and skulls with you on Instagram (I’m posting it here too because I love it that much!), the moment has come to talk costumes! I accepted the #VegaooChallenge, the challenge set out by Vegaoo (an eCommerce dedicated to party decorations, costumes and accessories that I also used to find the decorations for my nephew Luca’s birthday in June!). In what did the challenge consist?? Finding the perfect costume for Halloween! I went with the Mexican theme of Dia de los Muertos. What do you think?? Along with the pictures you’ll find all the links to replicate my look and to browse through all the awesome Halloween costumes (here’s a personal tip: don’t miss the section dedicated to Christmas and New Year’s Eve!).

LOOK ANNI 70 OVS FASHION BLOGGER IRENE COLZI OVS FASHION MESSAGE (13)

OVS Fashion Message: this season I’ll be your virtual style consultant in all OVS stores!

OVS Fashion Message. When I told you a week ago on Snapchat about my new collaboration with OVS, I was so excited. And I’ll tell you why. Those of you who have been following me for a while know it: OVS was one of the first brands I collaborated with. It was 2010 and only a few months after I opened my blog when Scott Shuman shot me for the OVS fall-winter 2010-2011 campaign (HERE if you’re curious to know more). Over the past few years we have collaborated together on many projects, one more exciting than the next: the one related to Expo (that was incredible!), to the opening of the biggest OVS store in the world to the OVS Arts of Italy to list only a few.

The project we are announcing today is on a whole other level: it’s pure innovation, in my opinion. Today is the start of the OVS Fashion Message for which I’ll be your Digital Personal Stylist: I’ll be the one to give you style tips while you shop at OVS!! Okay, okay, don’t worry! Let’s start from the beginning and let me explain what I’m talking about and how it works!

OVS Fashion Message: here’s what it’s all about 

If you have the OVS APP (if you don’t have it yet, download it on the App Store or on Android!) and you find yourself near or inside an OVS store in Italy, you’ll receive a notification on your smartphone… from me!!! In these notifications you’ll find some of my never before seen looks wearing OVS pieces available in stores at that moment that you’ll be able to purchase in real time, and you’ll also find style capsules on pairings and trends present in the store.

While you’re shopping I’ll be there virtually to give you a few style tips on what you’ll see in stores… I find it awesome to say the least! Aside from my tips, you’ll also receive news on promotions, prices and personalized digital coupons that you can use by simply passing your smartphone at the cash.

All you have left to do is try it.. and let me know what you think about my looks and style tips you’ll receive on your cell phone while you’re shopping at OVS!

The look in this post is a 100% OVS look that I put together to inaugurate this collaboration: a 70’s-inspired look that.. Well, all you have to do is download the OVS app, head over to an OVS store and read my style tips in real time.. I’ll be with you until February! :))

Happy shopping!

come indossare una giacca verde militare

How to wear military green

How to wear military green. Military green was elected one of the ugliest colours in the world (we’re referring to colour Pantone 448 in particular, a mix between green and brown..). Yet it’s quite in style, and if paired with the right colours, it can also be very chic and help you transition stylishly from day to night. You need to take the just precautions to find the best pairings. I prepared a gallery with 10 military green looks that you can take inspiration from and copy, each one more beautiful than the next. In the meantime, here are some ideas on how to wear military green.

 

How to wear military green: military green look ideas taking you from day to night!

– WITH BLACK: The most frequent pairing is most probably with black. Try pairing a military green blouse with a black leather mini skirt, black accessories and booties.
– GREEN ON GREEN: another chic look, especially if you choose to add brightening accessories or tone on tone sequin detailing, is the green on green pairing. If you’re not too sure about this look, break it up with a few hints of black.
– WITH BROWN / LEATHER: a chic pairing that sees military green paired with brown, whether a leathery shade or a darker one.
– WITH WHITE: Pairing a military green piece (a pair of pants, a skirt or a parka) with white is always a great idea!
