VILLINO FLORIO

VILLINO FLORIO “Beneath the shadow of Villino Florio sprout colors in opaque, sophisticated shades. These are the precious hues od the noble gardens of Palermo, which, combined with the sinuous grace of Liberty style create enchanting blossoms and bring exclusive garments to life. The sparkling avant-garde atmosphere of the Sicilian Belle Epoque thus lives on in the refined elegance of the floral prints, whose soft arboreal lines evoke the splendor and charm of the Art Nouveau period and the great industrialist families of Palermo.” It was love at first sight when I saw this botanical print, it is very masculine, I saw these two pieces and could not help myself and I had to try them on. I think you saw my snaps and insta-stories about my trip to the store located at the Renaissance mall in the beautiful Aruba. I went for a beach stroll and did some amazing pictures. I accessorized the look with a few gold rose bracelets and black Dolce Gabbana sunnies. Jacket, shorts and sunnies by Dolce Gabbana, bracelets by …

BJORN BORG SWIMWEAR

Bjorn Borg swimwear, “designed to make you feel active and attractive”, this is how the iconic brand describes their swimwear and they’re right. The multicolor piece I’m wearing is called Dryland, these vibrant shorts really pops and that’s how I like my swimwear, to really attract attention. They’re 5 inches, so just above the new to get the legs really tanned. The print is really interesting, it is a colored desert that at first, to me, it looked like butterfly wings: I wore it this past weekend to the beach, they’re quick dryers which is one of the most important features on a great pair of swim shorts. They have a classic cut with an elastic waistband and cord to keep them in place. The design is on point, they do not look puffy at al which is another important feature. Whos likes those unflattering puffy shorts? The quality is great like every Bjorn Borg piece and the price is fantastic. They also feature pockets on each side and a dark mesh lining which is very appropriate …

WATCH YOUR BACK | XARIFA

I’ve been wearing Xarifa for over 3 years now, and it is one of the top brands for luxury swimwear. I once blogged about them and called these shorts “the most elegant swimwear” and I still stand by that affirmation. The fabric and cut of these shorts set them apart, even thou they have an elastic waistband these shorts will never look puffy and that’s always a concern when you are buying shorts with elastic. The model I’m wearing for this blog post is called Fatima, it has an optical print in which the eye plays a leading role, that characteristic symbol of the Middle East signifying the ability to “see through different eyes” on a voyage of discovery to unexplored worlds and realities… in my book, this evil eye print keeps you protected at the beach… from sharks and bad tan perhaps? *wink* Here a more detailed description: Superleggero®  Polyester shell Elastic waistband Comfortable mesh net lining Adjustable cotton drawstring Button fastening and fold-in back pocket Nickel free Italian hardware Care: Gentle cycle machine wash [30°C …
