euro chic


There's something about the way Europeans dress during the summer that completely enthralls me. As I watched the French Open final (i.e., Rafa Nadal) yesterday, I couldn't help notice the stylishly dressed audience in the stands, decked out in their woven fedoras, cat-eye sunglasses and crisp, elegant suits. Everyone looked polished and put together, despite the Parisian heat. Further feeding my Euro style obsession this weekend was my Instagram feed, flooded with dazzling images taken by friends attending a lavish days-long wedding celebration in Croatia. Yes, the seaside scenery, the medieval turrets and towers were captivating--as was, of course, the sartorial splendor. Even during the daytime, (see above) Euro chicness was in full tilt. Of course, now I want to pull off continental glam right here at home, and all it will take is a few key pieces, such as this casually refined peplum top by Prabal Gurung, this flowy Robert Rodriguez swing skirt, this feminine Free People sundress, this snappy, Mediterranean-ready Asos mini, these simple leather TKEES sandals (or these by Splendid) and this woven Sensi fedora.

For years I've been looking for a dress like the 2nd one from the left (pink & green print). Any recommendations on who makes anything similar? Thanks!
