Someone asked me to suggest a few outfits to go with the lovely Les Parisiens scarf. This particular coloring is a perfect opportunity to mix warm beiges or browns with black, so I took that as my motif.
Please note that I'd be more than happy to suggest outfits to go with any scarf - it certainly doesn't have to be Hermes. Just post a comment with a link to a picture of your scarf, or email me a picture at email@example.com, and I'll take a look! ... View the Post
I received a question about what could be worn with a specific Hermes scarf - one with a lot of brown, beige and camel tones in the center, and a bright green border. My suggestions include all of the shades of brown, gold, white, and navy, which is always so nice with bright green...
And a lot of these clothes come from J. Crew. I've been spending a LOT of time lately in the local J. Crew store, gift shopping, and I've found that they stock a large number of nice-quality basic garments. Maybe not to your taste, or your budget, but certainly they are good "thought-starters".
Have a lovely weekend! ... View the Post
This is the last iteration of the original "honeymoon" packing theme that I started over a week ago. But in the next few days, I'm going to do some imaginary shopping, I've got a chic sighting to share, and then I'm going to tackle a "second honeymoon in Paris" theme, which will have a slightly greater focus on neutral colors and modest silhouettes!

It's the color of the year! But you can still wear it and look more elegant than trendy...
And I know that I said today would be the last iteration of this travel package, but someone asked me to try on turquoise, so tomorrow is brown and turquoise. It's going to be beautiful! ... View the Post
Still evolving the same packing which started with my honeymoon, I'm now thinking of a trip where you're leaving a cooler climate (maybe early autumn in northern climes) and heading south. Brown keeps your grounded in the September or October mood, but still lots of soft coral colors to enjoy your vacation destination!
Tomorrow is the last installment of this particular theme and variations; I'll be using the color of the year - tangerine!!! (the identifying of annual colors always makes me laugh...) ... View the Post
Someone suggested that I build a wardrobe based on my old blog photograph, of Melrose Abbey in Scotland. These are beautiful, subtle colors that combine in lovely ways, and I could have chosen a hundred different palettes, just based on this one photo! Build your own color-schemes, based on photos, here. ... View the Post
Today, I tried to cover at least a few trends - orange, stripes, and plaid shirts. More variations to come... ... View the Post
Someone mentioned yesterday that black and brown might be made to work with shades of red - so I made a few alterations to yesterday's wardrobe; the versatility of core neutral garments is truly amazing... ... View the Post

I've been receiving LOTS of questions about wearing navy clothing with brown shoes, and "warm" colors. This seems like it could be tricky, since navy is pretty much a cool color, but men have been making this combination of cool and warm work for decades, and it always looks great! My suggestions:
make sure your "navies" go together - navy can vary widely. Either buy all pieces at one time (ambitious, to be sure!), buy them from the same designer (equally ambitious), or plan to carry or wear a couple of navy items when you shop, so that you can be certain that your current garments will work with new purchases. feel free to experiment with any warm color as an accent. Green, gold, every shade of rust, persimmon, and ... View the Post
