I made a resolution this year to purchase with purpose, and to put a little thought into what I’m wearing when I leave the house. Too many days last year, I went the easy route and spent entire days in my little black sweats, t-shirts and sports bras.
I have high hopes for the summer. I live in dresses and lightweight cotton skirts anyway, which makes it much easier to look put together. So this DVF dress spoke to me right away. It’s comfortable, casual but can also be brought up a notch with metallic shoes and accessories – perfect for taking the kids to pool or a glass of wine with my husband on a warm evening out.

Tomorrow, I’m having a pre-Valentine’s Day brunch with my best girls. We picked a great little place, Dario’s Brasserie, for a French-themed morning of Mimosas and amazing French/European cuisine. What’s more “amour” than French-inspired anything?!
And this is what I’ve chosen to wear. Red pants (I can’t stop wearing them!), the ever-popular staple – horizontal striped tees, statement-making jewelry in a poppy color and of course, great platform heels for a long and lean line with trouser-style pants.
