Now that we've had a little distance from the July 4th festivities let's dive right back into red, white & blue mode for the upcoming Olympics. I relish every aspect of the Olympic Games (though I prefer Winter to Summer) and can't wait for the Opening Ceremonies in London. I particularly love the special edition merch, especially since the Union Jack is so prominently featured.

Regardless of the Made in China controversyRalph Lauren's uniforms for Team USA scream preppy/chic flight attendant (which I dig) and will make our athletes look quite sharp for the official festivities. In addition to the official gear, many brands, including Alex & Ani and Butter London, have put out fantastic limited edition items for the occasion. However, I'd avoid the Olympic Ring peep toe stilettos below...

French Dressing 1
Skinny pants, printed blouses, ballet flats and scarves are the well known mainstays of the cool French girl uniform, with cropped leather jackets on cooler days. I was surprised to see just how many ladies were carrying Longchamp totes and after purchasing one of my own I now understand the popularity. They're roomy, lightweight and perfect for travel. I also noticed a surprising lack of jewelry and makeup while hair was typically worn long and loose. The overall look was cool and chic but not forced...very relaxed.
