It’s Memorial Day! A day in America where we take a moment to remember those who have served in the country’s armed forces and I’d say a big THANK YOU is due as well. It’s also the unofficial start to summer (yes, we somehow completely missed spring). With the hot temperatures of the days ahead, it seems like it’s easy to get stuck in a uniform of denim shorts and tees when the sun turns up the heat. But, what I’ve always loved about so many women we feature on the blog is their approach to dressing for the seasons that is uniquely their own. So I thought it might be nice to see what their idea of a perfect summer look was and, as it turns out, it’s anything but basic…
“This outfit is a perfect summer one for so many reasons. This giupure skirt has all the elements I love, the mix of colors is quite unnatural at first but they blend together very well – the length is very easy from day to night, which I love too – who wants to go change post-office, pre-dinner ?
I think dots give a less serious aspect to any silhouette. Once shoes and skirts are set, throwing on a black t-shirt is an easy, yet chic and casual add and calm the whole action happening with the skirt and the shoes.
Finally, this bag doesn’t carry much but it does the most important, the memory of my grandmother who is in Paris. Everytime it is with me, I can sense her presence. Summer is not necessarily about the perfect outfit, but more about the people and the vibe that suits you the most, and then… Your outfit becomes perfect.”
