Florals and corals

Summertime should not preclude you from wearing black.
Au contraire – you just need to make it feel more summery with some florals, or a splash of colour!

My favourite colour this season has to be anything in the coral family. I am finding myself drawn to anything coral spotted on the rack.
So pretty and feminine.

So here is my version of a summertime “black” outfit.

Love this Alex Perry top with a beautiful big floral pattern, an interesting vest-like shape at the top and flattering pleats.

So quick, easy and elegant.

The detail on this bag is gorgeous – from the multi coloured panels, to the DVF kiss!

Short Shorts

Forget the LBD (ok jokes) – but, what about the LITTLE BLACK SHORTS?

I love them in spring, I love them in summer.
I love them casual, i love them dressy.
I love them on The Hart Of Dixie and the resulting disruption they cause to the town of Bluebell.

This past Sunday, I channeled my inner Zoe Hart and took my favourite little black shorts out to Brooklyn.
Teamed up with a summery colour blocked tank – and my new Manolo Blahniks (their first excursion!!)

Shorts – Loft (similar here)
Pumps – Manolo Blahnik Kandita-Mod Sandal

While some perceive them to be casual, I disagree and believe you can make the little black short a dressy statement.

Bring out the legs for summer.

Ev & The City – Charleston Edition

I am pretty much ready to run away to the South!
After a few days, I have fallen deeply in love with Charleston.

The food (yes I tried grits, and no they are not for me!), the cute buildings running along cobblestone streets, the history, markets, horse drawn carriages…
Added to this, it was perfect warm weather every day.
Ohhh so dreamy – leaving me in a pastel frame of mind.

Result – AWESOME. It was super easy and took me no more than two minutes!!
