Prints Charming - Part Deux!

There is something impossibly chic about wearing black in the summer. It has that "je ne sais quoi" factor that Parisian women are famous for. Plus, black is the perfect foil for showcasing this season's gorgeous printed jackets. Adding black to the mix is a more modern take on florals in a pretty-meets-powerful way. 

Speaking of jackets, autumn is just around the corner, and if you have been following my blog for a while, you know that it is my favorite time of the year. The sartorial possibilities of autumn are as alluring as its apple-crisp air and turning leaves. I can't wait to share with you some of my favorite looks and color palettes for autumn. Stay tuned!

Have a great weekend!

Prints Charming!

Out and about with my Prints Charming today! Paired with a playful (read colorful) yet sharp clutch and sleek pumps, a fab printed sheath dress like this one would make a very chic ensemble for your summer soirées. I wore this dress to my birthday brunch and paired it with a fuchsia clutch that picks up on the vibrant colors of the dress, and yet is sleek enough to let the gorgeous print of the dress do all the talking. You don't want too many competing elements in a look.

I love how this dress marries a busy print with sharp tailoring for an end result that is very polished with a dash of summery nonchalance! The slightly below-the-knee length of this dress makes it office-appropriate as well. Just add a structured tote for work, and you are good to go. Don't we all love wardrobe elements that multi-task? 

Have a wonderful weekend!
