Black, White, and Red All Over

It sounds silly, but as soon as I saw this café, I knew I wanted to style an outfit around it. The architecture and decor have such a vintage flair, and, for some reason, I was reminded of those iconic 1930s era photos of women sitting outside Parisian cafés, sipping their morning coffee in style.

The rest of the inspiration for this look, the color palette, came from seeing everyone reading the daily newspaper as they enjoyed their breakfast.

I have to admit, since I'm only 5'1, I usually steer clear of midi and maxi dresses because they tend to be way too long on me. This one, however, fits just perfectly, and I've found the hemline to be very flattering. I'm also such a sucker for anything with the little keyhole/knot detailing on the bodice.

The shoes have been my go-to sandals this summer, and are actually part of my July Favorites (check out the Current Favorites tab to read a little more about them!).

And of course, no summer look is complete without a pair of oversized sunglasses to block out those rays. 

Undoubtedly a modern spin on the ladies pictured above, but I still think this outfit has a vintage feel to it, just like the café.
