  2. I agree with Gail's comment.
    I thought how youthful that scarf is and those energetic bright pairings are once again nothing short of brilliant!

  3. This is a fresh, beautiful wardrobe set. I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw it. This blog, my all-time favorite, is great because it's flexible and shows a variety of style types and age ranges.

    Lately I've felt a bit blah instead of inspired by some posts only because the trend has been recently toward styles which are not mine--outdoorsy plaid shirts and plain turtlenecks for Europe, dresses with no body consciousness, and a very conservative, ladylike vibe with a plethora of silk square scarves and pumps and matchiness--all of which are lovely on the person who rocks these styles, of course--and piles of cool-weather appropriate looks that have no appeal right now in my world since I don't live in a very temperate climate or stay in a Maximum AC environment for essentially the whole day.

    But then, here's another Hermes post but I'm no longer flipping past and waiting for the next post, but once again inspired by color, shape, season-appropriateness for my climate, and the whole vibe. Ahhh. i love this blog.

  5. Dear daughter is still shrieking to see her graduation-present used in your post. Problem is, now she would like all the rest of the clothes! Oh well, she does have a pink dress. Thank you so much!

  6. Did you mix up the sources for the shoes in the bottom two pictures? I think you might've, maybe...

  15. Your capsules are so inspiring. As soon as I saw this post on Saturday, I knew I HAD to have that scarf. I tracked one down in Chicago and it's on its way to me. Hooray!
