It's been a while and I hope everyone has been enjoying a lovely summer. After a fun and fabulous family trip to Berlin, I am in the process of sorting through the many pictures I took and arranging them into a travelogue featuring my favorite spots, places to eat and stay, and things to do... starting next week.
 

Until then, there will be a couple more FSH inspired summer capsule episodes to come.. continuing with coral and white

Shoes: coral loafers 
Accessories: Dark brown leather belt and MaiTai Collection waterfall necklace in brique/saumon

Variations for cooler or warmer days....

    1. Many thanks, dear Simone! The loafers are by ‘Mellow Yellow’, but I bought them in 2012. Mellow Yellow has great prices, and they do classic styles in fun color and texture combinations. Good luck, and have a wonderful weekend too!

  4. I have decided to shamelessly steal this look only with a coral skirt....I think I am going to need to order one of your rings - I find that is such a chic way to wear your shirts knotted!!!

  6. Welcome back, dear MaiTai!! :-))) Berlin is one of my favorite cities. Love the coral on you, and the lipstick is the perfect shade. Is it MAC? Such a clever use of the shawl ring, used to secure your blouse ends together!

    Warm orange hugs, dear

    I think that coral is "your" colour...so pretty on you.

  13. Hello,
    What is meant by "capsule pieces" of clothing/accessories?
    Thank you for the wonderful ideas.

    1. Capsule clothes and accessories are the most essential items of a wardrobe. They consist of our most loved, worn and trusted staples and basics, which can be mixed and matched into a huge variety of different looks, or given a complete lift by the addition of some seasonal pieces :-)

  14. Love this look - so crisp and summer and of course timeless, looking tremendously chic as always! I was absolutely stoked, when I came across my two happy colored jeans at summer sale this year; one in sort of a turquoise and the other in a similar color as yours. I was actually on the hunt for white (never ending story), but since those two fit so well, I decided to finally add some color to my rather neutral closet. ;-) Thank you for always being such a kind and lovely inspiration - hugs, Macs
