A Color For All Seasons

Few hues have the power and impact of the color red. Red is also one of few colors with a shade to universally flatter just about anyone and works perfectly in any season. A dress in this lovely color was just the thing for an evening out on a recent trip to the Opatija Riviera. This summer’s travels had me revisiting the picturesque destination, which happens to be the starting point of tourism in Croatia. Many of the elegant villas and parks date all the way back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Spring Forward

                Spring is a time for looking forward and into the future. The warmer months often bring about a sense of optimism and the feeling of endless possibilities. Sheading those winter layers has a way of making us feel lighter and rejuvenated. While we may still be in the midst of winter, there is no denying that the changing of the seasons is right around the corner. So with that, I’ve already started thinking about what I will be keeping next season and what I may change. One look I plan to continue wearing is the maxi skirt. The maxi skirt offers the body an effortlessly fluid silhouette with just a bit of drama and a hint of mystery. Which looks will you be staying with next season, and which will need a change?
