Dark Summer Floral

This ensemble was inspired by clients of mine who enjoy wearing florals with black backgrounds because the effect is more Hard Edge.

This post was inspired by casual clients who are loving chinos for Spring and Summer because they’re casual, covered, comfortable, easy to launder, and a break from wearing jeans.

Summer Cinnamon

Casual Pastel Pink & Blue

This ensemble was inspired by my own pastel pink and blue casual outfits that I’ve enjoyed wearing over the last few weeks. The palette is for those who like to wear pastels from head to toe, which is an acquired taste. The effect is soft and pretty, and extra crisp with white. No hard edge at all.
