TOILE DE JOUY

My apologies for the week of radio silence. Things were pretty hectic for a while, but I missed posting more than I thought I would so even though today is officially a national holiday and the weather outside is sweltering, I have snuck inside for a much needed cooling-off and some down-time (make that blog-time) for myself.  In honor of the gorgeous weather, and with the summer holidays looming, I just ordered an adorable blue and white Toile-de-Jouy sundress from Topshop.

Old-fashioned, maybe; sweet and girly, definitely, but I will forever be in love with this adorable French fabric featuring eighteenth century bucolic splendor. And the beauty of it is, it never goes out of fashion. I’ve always had a weakness for top-to-bottom Toile bedrooms, Toile table ware from Gien and modern re-imaginings for the catwalk. I can’t wait to wear my dress to the beach this summer!!
