April in Paris. . .

Working the navy, here in a whimsical draped silk skirt from Nina Ricci.
In our continuing series on what to wear in Paris, my pal and creator of the must-visit-every-day blog, The Vivienne Files, has used navy blue as the foundation to build upon. I love navy and believe it is slightly kinder than black, even though I'm addicted to black.

To me, navy says "fresh" and "spring" and "Paris."

I turned on the Sinatra station this weekend and he was singing APRIL IN PARIS...so I am already in the mood. I love B & W popped with green and the top outfit is so much fun!

I so agree with your thoughts about navy. It looks great 4 seasons, it goes with any other color, and can be worn city or country, on a boat, to a wedding, to a funeral, and looks perfect for a casual Saturday in Summer and a formal dinner in Winter. A perfectly fitting navy suit of very fine wool gabardine could take one almost anywhere, any season. Inspired capsules, love the green! N.G.

Totally OT but for those who ARE in Paris this April note that both Eucerin and Filorga are 20% off at Monoprix this month.

Love the whimsy of the ruffle. And navy is classic. Always fresh, any time of the year.
