Building a Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art: Lucy Hessel at the Seashore by Edouard Vuillard


My readers have the very best taste; this painting was sent to me to consider for a "Start With Art", and I thought the colors were so beautiful!

The mood of this painting - languid, soft, dreamy, relaxed - made me think of a honeymoon, or a second honeymoon...

  3. As always, lovely choices. I like the inclusion of the dresses with the casual tops and bottoms. This is what I would pack for a vacation. Lots of activities during the day and a nice dinner in the evening.

  4. So soft (in both color and texture), so pretty, so youthful, and so flattering. I love the floral theme picked up in necklace, muted scarf, and tee. A dreamy wardrobe, Janice.

  6. I am in the process of laundering, ironing and culling summer clothes and this post inspires me to look at what I already own. The little bit of floral and the soft pinks and greens look so pretty.

  7. Beautiful! I love pastels but rarely wear them. I don't know how to describe it well, but I look "silly" in them. Rich earth tones and the jewels for me.
