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.

Croatia Revistied

2013 has come and gone, leaving behind some very memorable moments. Among those memorable moments, one of the most notable was visiting friends and family in Croatia this past Fall. Although it was a short and sweet trip, I took in every moment spent with loved ones and all those majestic views! No matter how many times I visit, I always find the Adriatic Coast and the Austro-Hungarian architecture absolutely stunning! Sometimes rediscovering old favorite places can bring new insight and perspective.

Pop of Color

Adding a bright pop of color to an always chic black outfit instantly brings new life and dimension to the ensemble. A simple way to create this effect is by finishing your look with a blazer or accessorizing with a colored scarf. Jewelry also helps add that extra bit of sparkle.
