I have to be honest, I don't wear a lot of color. Whilst black, grey, navy and neutrals will always be my the basics of my wardrobe,  green and I have never seen eye to eye.

 Except, that is for khaki.  Maybe it's something to do with the uniform connection, or the military precision, or perhaps that it just fits in with my need for a new battle plan?...

The art of dressing well is not complicated. Whatever your budget, just invest in the best you can afford.  It does however take a little time, and a few well chosen pieces, so that you always have the right things in your wardrobe.

I'm always excited at the start of a new season, and sometimes there is something so, fresh and new that it literally makes me swoon, I have that (can't live without moment) and will throw it lovingly into the mix.

 Something tells me that may just happen........But, I guess that's allowed, isn't it?
