A Tutto Stile! by Irene Colzi: my first book, published by Mondadori!

A Tutto Stile!. I still have to realize that I can finally write this for real: I wrote a book. And it’s not just any book. “A Tutto Stile! » published by Mondadori and available in bookstores throughout Italy as of September 13th. My book. A crazy year, with crazy amounts of work. A year of “I can’t do it!” followed by a series of “Yes, I can do it, come on!”. A year in which I gave everything I had to give: a year rich with enthusiasm, hysterical fits, ideas, ups and downs and juggling things better than the best juggler.

It was a year of chapters written in planes, trains, cruise ships, hotel rooms, in the Caribbean, in Asia, in Europe, at the sea and in the mountains, during the night, the day or early in the morning. Writing a book isn’t easy; it’s a real challenge I had with myself. When I met with the Mondadori team for the first time just over a year ago, I really did think to myself that I would never be able to summarize my ideas and write them all down on paper. I saw it as an insurmountable challenge, especially with the frenetic life I lead.

 

A Tutto Stile! by Irene Colzi, coming to bookstores near you on September 13th!

Writing a book means taking a step back from the world: only by isolating oneself from everything is it possible to put one’s thoughts, feelings and emotions down on paper as vividly as they appear in your mind. And for a multi-tasker such as myself, always on the go, it wasn’t easy. I learnt to do it, week after week, month after month, and it wasn’t long before the hours spent writing flew by without me even realizing it. Even the pictures in this book are special to me: the unpublished pictures you’ll find inside, as well as the cover, were taken by Giova and thought out entirely by ourselves: a book that was 100% created by me, which is something I’m very proud of. Seeing the complete product today gives me a huge sense of joy! “A Tutto Stile!”, published by Mondadori is my first book. I still can’t believe I actually wrote it! :)

“A tutto Stile!” is a 200 page book focused on who I am now and who I was before you got to know me on the web, and everything I know about style. In this book I’m opening up like never before and featuring all the fashion we love, the accessible kind with a few hints of reasoned madness. The fashion that makes us special. The spine of the book makes this resonate, and is a great preview of what my book is about.

Enhancing your tan: what to wear and what colours will make you shine!

Enhancing your tanComing back to reality after a vacation is always (and I repeat always) quite the traumatic experience. But ladies, let’s try to think as positively as possible :P The summer left us with golden, sun-kissed skin.. Now that we’re back home it’s time to show off the tan we’ve been working on for months and months!
On today’s post you’ll find the colours and pairings that will enhance your tan to its utmost potential.. Ready? Let’s begin!!

 

 Enhancing your tan: what to wear and what colours will make you shine!

WHITE WITH GOLDEN ACCESSORIES 

For those of you who have golden skin, white is the colour of choice to emphasize the dark shade of the skin, creating a pleasant contrast. What you may not know is that the effect is even nicer if the colour white is paired with gold tone accessories. Unlike silver, gold intensifies golden skin, thus illuminating it. You’ve got to see it to believe it!

Adidas Gazelle and an off-the-shoulder top
Adidas Gazelle. Good day girls!! Today I’m sharing a look I wore a few days ago featuring two key pieces. The first is the off-the-shoulder top which we’ve mentioned many times before including in this post which if you haven’t read already I suggest you do (yes, I really do love this trend!), and the second can be found on my feet..

Adidas Gazelle and an off-the-shoulder top

The Adidas Gazelle are back in style: say goodbye (for the moment..) to the evergreen Stan Smiths, the new trend is all about the Gazelles. I chose mine in a shade of beige and I have to say that they are super versatile (other than being super comfortable). What do you think of this look? Here are all the details and the pictures :)

Renting a chalet in the mountains: Homeaway and my dream vacation!

Renting a chalet in the mountains: how dreamy!

Renting a chalet in the mountains. Hello girls!! How are you doing? As I’m preparing to leave to Sweden on a new trip the moment is here to share with you the beautiful pictures we shot during our summer vacation spent in the mountains in a chalet we rented, that I have to admit made many of us fall in love at first sight.. Many of you wrote to me on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat!! Today I’m happy to share more about this beautiful chalet and insert a few direct links to browse through a few of the incredible homes to rent for your next vacation!!

But let’s go back to the beginning :)

This year was quite a frenetic one to say the least: events, trips, projects, changes. All together, we worked really hard: this summer our only desire was to escape from the world, from the chaos of our daily lives and relax (really relax!). And that’s when we said to ourselves: why not rent a nice chalet, a beautiful log cabin in the middle of the mountains to truly disconnect? And that’s exactly what we did! We found the log cabin of my most cherished dreams on Homeaway.it, the online destination for homes, apartments and villas that you can rent in Italy and in the rest of the world. Here you can find anything from pocket-friendly deals to dream-worthy places.. Not only this chalet (but many others you can find by searching HERE, indicating the keywords Italy and Chalet in the filter) but also villas with pools, design homes, homes with grass roofs, huts on the sea in the Caribbean, mills in Greece.. and anything that could come to mind, all you need to do is search it up :)

Renting a chalet in the mountains: here’s the story of my vacation

Our “Chalet Tournette”, the one you’ll see in the pictures of this post was located in Manigod near Thones in Upper Savoy. You can find this dreamy abode in the French Alps HERE. A living room with giant couches, super soft carpets, a TV and DVD player, a rocking chair, a wood stove, a terrace with an incredible view to enjoy the sun at high altitude, an outdoor jacuzzi where the water was heated by wood, a barbecue, and a private sauna in the bathroom. Anything you could ever want in a house in the mountains, where you almost wish for a rainy day to be able to enjoy it fully, from the fireplace to the UNO games, to the pancakes fresh out of the oven to the DVD marathons!

In this post you’ll also find many pictures from the beautiful sceneries of Upper Savoy where we did some trekking for a week (accompanied by great food… How delicious is the food in France?!?!). Enjoy!!

White dress: and I’m not talking about wedding dresses! The ultimate wardrobe item for July!

White dress: and I’m not talking about wedding dresses! The ultimate wardrobe item for July!

White dress. Summer = white. We have already talked about white jeans that are a constant trend for the summer. Yes, white is the color par excellence for summer! It’s as elegant as black and is fresh, bubbly, positive, and calm. Basically, you understand that I love white :D

White dress: and I’m not talking about wedding dresses! The ultimate wardrobe item for July!

So the item that absolutely can not be missing from our wardrobe for summer is a white dress (or a beautiful collection of white dresses :D).

  • A white dress is chic for the beach, especially if worn with straw accessories and colorful swimsuits
  • A lacy white dress is summery and sensual: it looks great with leather accessories for the day or in black for the evening
  • A white dress is the black of the evening: it is elegant, especially worn with metal or gold accessories
  • Dare to go for a total look in white: white dress (Even with a blazer for the evening), sandals and white sunglasses
  • Here is a bit of inspiration for some different ways to wear your white clothes :)
