I was getting my daily fill of my favourite blogs the other day, when I came across the most gorgeous photograph of the most elegant looking Parisian lady, looking summery, yet sophisticated in shorts and a shirt.
Habitually Chic had reblogged this from The Sartorialist – however the copy that The Sartorialist wrote about this was so spot on – that I wanted to share it with you:
What a great way to look this summer: so simple and yet so refined.
I love that her shorts aren’t too short and that her top isn’t too tight. Nothing screams in this look and yet the presentation is very strong.
This is a great example of elegance successfully achieved through understatement and flawless execution.
I think that describes the essence of how I would always like to dress!!
Of course, I in turn emailed this link to one of my best friends (who could give the best fashion stylists a run for their money) so that she could help me organise this as one of ‘my looks’ for summer. I had to laugh when she advised me that she had already seen this shot and had put it away in her ‘summer inspiration’ folder!!! I think it’s going to be a good summer ……………!
