current style {relaxed elegance}

I am so often asked what my favorite style is and the truth is that it is ever changing and this summer it is absolutely relaxed elegance--for both the home and the closet. I think that this outdoor space perfectly defines this style--just love the multi color wood flooring, crisp white curtain panels and the touches of copper.

(via elle interior)
And I thought that this white linen dress, copper toned earrings, amber hued cuff and a simple bone clutch would create the perfect outfit to enjoy this breezy outdoor space.

And this lovely indoor space is a close second place for what I imagine relaxed elegance translating too, the subdued colors and slouchy pillows are just so incredibly inviting.

Of course I couldn't leave this space without a matching ensemble and I think that this effortlessly chic dress, beautifully embellished scarf paired with a simple bracelet and sparkly sandals would do wonderfully.


Do you change your favorite style as much as me? Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and happy Monday.

so comfy and classy.

my style seems to be ever changing, so it's hard to pin down a favorite one. I do love your rustic elegance that you did an inspiration board for a little while back. And I guess vintage-y cottage could be a fave.

liza said...

Oh my. I love all of these. Particularly the outfits (and the melange of chairs in the top photo). I'm off to browse the dress and scarf sites now. Thank you!

Courtney said...

That top space is a recent fav of mine too! I think it is pretty much perfection. And I love the outfits you put together-- they embody summer elegance! Oh, and, yes, my favorite style changes all the time. Hope you had a great weekend too! xo
