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.

Mixing Neutrals

On an early summer day while getting ready for brunch, I opted for a neutral color palette. The look started with a light little black dress, which   I paired with chestnut brown heels. The morning was unseasonably cool so I added a printed blazer. To finish off the ensemble I accessorized with a metallic embellished clutch and dark sunglasses.

Summer Daydreams

AdriaticVacation photo, Summer 2010 on the Adriatic Coast

With Summer fast approaching, I find my self thinking about some of my favorite memories from Summer’s past and making plans for the upcoming season. Many of these memories usually include being on a beach somewhere, preferably along Croatia’s enchantingly beautiful Adriatic Coast. There’s nothing better than enjoying the view from one of the lovely seaside cafes. During the warm weather I’m typically drawn to light easy styles like flowy dresses and tops that remind me of the Mediterranean region.
