Night and Day, Day and Night . . .

If you are planning a getaway before summer slips away, here are two looks that can be thrown in the overnight bag for a very simple and chic weekend. The evening look is an Yves Saint Laurent white silk with black and magenta floral print kimono style wrap dress. The dress is trimmed with black ribbon and has a black belt. This is a look that can be easily dressed up or down, according to what would be deemed appropriate. The day look is a three piece set by Missoni. The skirt is a dusty rose color wool, nylon and linen blend that has been woven in such a way that it almost looks as though it were pleated. The top is a front and back shallow V neck short sleeve done in the same material, with a few added green, orange, purple, blue and red horizontal stripes. The last piece in the set is a button down deep V neck vest, done in the same colorful material as the top. If you don't want to try very hard, but still want to have a stylish ensemble, both of these looks are perfect!
