Mid-Week Inspiration: The French Riviera in the 1950's and 1960's

I can't think of a Summer when the French Riviera in the 50's and the 60's hasn't been my style inspiration. This year is no exception. I will not be going anywhere near the Riviera this year, but I can at least pretend, even here on hot New York City pavement.

Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly are the epitome of Riviera chic to me. If only I was a blonde!

Fit and flare summer dresses are on my style agenda this season! Of course in gingham and eyelet!

Yes, yes, to this convertible! Ahhh the view!

I have the brunette version of this hair. I just need the sun hat. I really do!
