I love casual elegant everyday style!

But as Diana Vreeland, the noted columnist and fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue once said: “Too much good taste can be boring.” So, to offset this truth, many times I use leopard prints, mostly in shoes as a neutral. By the way, do see “The Eye Has to Travel” it is an amazing 2011 documentary about her life and career.

Among the easy outfit tips we learned from street style in 2015 is wearing statement shoes and handbags with a casual look.

While walking the cobble streets of Corfu town, despite what you have seen in my other outfit post from the beautiful Greek island city centre, high heels are not advisable. These amazing lace-up pointy-toe flats from Aquazzura are a perfect blend comfort with trend, chic with ease. I seriously considered keeping the patent black ones, but with so many monochromatic variations of lace-up ballerina shoes around, I went for the stand out from the crowd leopard one.

Cotton fabric, thick knit, contrasting panels, rounded neck, long sleeve and frayed finish? This sweater from Mango is perfect!

As for the Chloe Drew bag, small is the most versatile, practical size because it can go from day to night, fits everything you need and can be worn as a cross-body.
