modern twist

i always love to take a classic piece like my cardigan blazer and bend the rules a little by pairing it with a casual item like my tried-and-true chinos. toss in a striped tee, and it’s casual chic – one of my favorite looks. a little bit french, a little bit american, 100% comfy!

    • Hi Jennell,
      My jacket is tailor made patterned after a Chanel jacket. My family lived in Vietnam for several years
      and had a wonderful tailor that we visited quite often located on Le Lai street.

    Fabulous! I love a style mix, it is so much more interesting. Elegant and casual, elegant and boho or even edgy are my favourites.
    We still have snow and I am so much looking forward to wearing open shoes and light clothes again…
