Fave Re-run

A la Riviera

This is one of my favorite posts that I am re-running because I am driving my older daughter to Vermont today for camp. Enjoy!

Straw market baskets, striped tees and espadrilles are all the rage this summer and I am more than happy to dress à la Saint Tropez. Or Capri. Any spot along that delicious French/Italian coastline would be fine. I am channeling a lavender-infused, bouillabaisse-simmering, Orangina-sipping, Paris Match-reading, Mediterranean summer.

  • yooo hooo Sebastien from la Cote d’Azur,
    Preston DID include a pic of the K. Jacques sandal – the traditional super strappy ones are uncomfortable and unflattering! : )
