  1. Love it! This is beautiful, definitely up my alley.

  2. Amazing the difference one color can make! Beautiful.

  3. There is a palette for all of us...
    your ability to compose these vignettes with clothing makes me think that you might be a painter.

    1. I'm not at all artistic! Well, I never thought I was... I think that my palette is women, and my paint is fabric, leather, and stones. And you all are my masterpieces! That would be enough for me.
      big hug,

  4. Coral is one of my most flattering shades and fortunately it was in style this spring. Love your combinations.

  5. Well, I loved yesterday's blue and camel! And I love today's coral and camel :-)

  6. I would buy every piece of this. Coral is one of my best colors and I love camel, although I have a hard time finding it

  7. This is beautiful, and I should have more than enough inspiration for an upcoming week-long trip. Thank you so much.

  8. I am loving your posts...can you address the issue of trying to cultivate a nice wardrobe when you live in a rural area with limited shopping venues?? Buying on line is always possible but so difficult when you can't touch or try on the clothes!!

  9. Loved your blue colour so much that it's pushed me to re-think my accents in a new wardrobe schema. Vivienne- you are an inspiration AND initiate temptation!! ;-))

    Yes! This! This set is mine :)

  11. Very beautiful set for a women who can wear coral. So sweet, so romantic.


  12. Love it! What would you recommend for a 2 week honeymoon aboard a mediterranean cruise? :-)

  13. I'm new to your blog, and I'm loving it! I really like your 5+2+7 formula and the idea of 8 basic pieces in a neutral. Building on this 5+2+7, what pieces would you suggest adding for a 12 day trip (I will be tossing in a pair of jeans!).
