Keeping Things Neutral

If you’ve been following me on Twitter & Instagram, you know that I’m in Switzerland for the summer and that makes this post’s title even better. Gotta love them Swiss and their neutrality ;)
We arrived here 3 weeks ago and it’s amazing how a change in location can affect everything about you right down to your style. Zurich is a very chic and wealthy city so it’s not surprising to see everyone out in their designer suits, beautifully pressed clothes and Lanvin flats.
Coming from Miami where the weather is so hot you’d opt to walk around naked if you could, it’s a nice change to see everyone looking so well-dressed and put together. When we go into the city (which is very often), I venture away from my shorts and canvas sneaks and gear myself to feminine and polished outfits like this dress from 4.Collective.

I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to fit so I immediately fell in love with the first 4.Collective dress I posted (here). This dress is a little lighter in material but still with the same great cut and fit. They are slowly becoming my new favorite brand.
I don’t have the Lanvin flats (yet) but I did pack these perfectly dainty ballet flats that worked beautifully with this look.

Dress: 4.Collective Spring Tweed Flirty Dress (on major sale here)
Shoes: Banana Republic Avaa Ballet Flat in silk
Bag: Let & Her large bag via Epitome Spa
I LOVE this bag. It’s so luxe and the pop of orange was the perfect color addition to my look.
Watch: Cartier Must 21 Chronoscaph

    How lucky are you to be in Switzerland, and for a whole summer no less?! Neutrals are always a good option when you want to look polished and put-together. Great look!
