There is nothing better in the summer than going to the pool. I rarely wear black, but this is such a classic shape for a bikini. I decided today to just wear something simple and classic. Black is not the most flattering neutral for me. I tend to look brighter in navy, camel or white... but today something jumped out at me. I decided it would work perfect with mint. I am always in search for new ways to mix colors. Color is so much a part of how I put together interiors, outfits and how I display who I am through art.

Growing up I was one of those kids that gravitated towards anything art related. Especially painting. I trained for 16 years in ballet - yes, I tried tap, jazz, hip hop... but couldn't give up the classics. I love to listen to classical music and opera when no one is around. There is something old world about the whole feel of it all. And that's what makes me fall in love with the everyday. Mint looks great with white, but the stark contrast against black is just as vibrant. A strappy sandal, tote and perfect panama hat - well, doesn't it make you want to take a dip?
