Summer black & Travel Dreams

Psynopsis Michael Kors Shorts Costume National Blouse

Psynopsis Michael Kors Shorts New Look Sequin Vest
"There is no point in design for design's sake. Everything I believe in is about getting women dressed." Michael Kors
Spent the weekend with one of our very best friends from the US, which was lovely and reminded me that I really badly WANT TO GO! I haven’t been to the United States of America for 20 years. He's invited us to Boulder and I would also love to see New York and Boston again. Apart from this, my sister isn’t too impressed that I haven’t managed to visit her and her family in Seattle in 2 years… Shame on me! But I will, I will!! And when I go I will take these shorts along because they are my wear-everywhere, in-any-weather go-to shorts. Black, high-waisted, 100% virgin wool… I love them in summer with a vest or a blouse and in winter with black opaque tights and a blazer.

There is something about Michael Kors designs… They always seem sexy and cool in a no-nonsense, sleek way; as if they were made for the jet-setting, international woman who wants to be well dressed and comfortable without thinking much about it. Or is this just my impression because many of his ads feature planes, cars and women on the move - ideally stepping out of a limousine or a chauffeur in the background? Maybe that's why I'm looking so grumpy in these pictures - Where is the limousine and my chauffeur, I wonder...

shorts: michael kors, blouse: costume national, shoes: cesare paciotti, vest: new look

These so strongly structuring high-waisted shorts ideally define a certain "Casual/Urban CHIC" idea, AND I really like the way this scintillating top softly tend to instil a "day to day Party Girl-esque" twist on it !!!

Your shorts are amazing! I love the way they fit and they look so glamorous with the sparkly top.

I so need to do my MK homework after this. No too little about this man and his designs to be honest. You look great by the way!

Ioana Liliana Gheorghe said...

Indeed a very no-nonsense quote from the practical Michael Kors. For those outfits I would also wonder where's the chauffeur and private jet. I do especially love the second one and the shoes fit so well!

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

such a darling look Sabine!
Your chauffeur is taking a mini vacay back in Brazil no?!

Karoline said...

The 2nd look is my fav! LOVE it<3

Dancing Branflake said...

You should so come out to visit us! Portland, Oregon should also be on the top of your list. It's so beautiful! It's like a cleaner San Francisco.

Pink Blog Girl said...

I absolutely LOVE that sequin top! Fab, fab, fab :)

Cindy Whitehead said...

Love the shorts look - so pulled together for summer. I was just thinking I want to go to Paris and Tokyo - but since I have no control re: shopping I may need to wait! (-:

Daphne said...

You have to come back to our part of the world!!! I'm headed to London in two weeks- so excited! I lived there as a child, but haven't been in over a decade (except for a stop over on the way to Norway).
I adore both outfits. You have such great legs and you look so simply chic.

I love your sparkly top, so stylish. I want to buy one like that. I would love to go to the US sometime too. I have never been there.

Couture Millinery Atelier. said...

Well, if it makes you feel a little bit better - you look very New York in this outfit. :-))) I love it! Everything is right about it: a bit os a sparkle in combination with great shorts. I also love your shirt on the secon picture. Please, come and visit New York very soon!:-))) Wishing you wonderful week!

Elizabeth said...

That first outfit is so chic! Can I have your legs instead of mine? They are just a little too short :)

Sher said...

Ahh, I want a pair of those shorts too!! And that hourglass figure of yours while we're at it!!

Your sister's in Seattle? What're you waiting for:)

Sara said...

Valerie said...

Jen said...

The shorts look fabulous. I think it's quite hard to pull off black wool shorts for summer but you do it with pizazz, as always!

I'm desperate to visit America, too. My future SIL is moving over their in August (Chicago, to be exact) so I'm hope we'll have visits aplenty. :)

Clare said...

Beautiful, love your sequin top!

Robinson Pfeffer does exist, I promise! The holiday has been all re-booked so it's all good :)

Unfortunately, I realize my travel dreams; I just don't have the funds to go out and put them into action just yet. Hopefully soon.

You look absolutely heavenly, Sabine! Those high-waisted shorts are just stunning - you have an amazing physique and wear your clothes so well!! :)

rossovelvet said...

Sometimes I like Kors' designs but yet I don't agree with the quote, fashion without design, follies and dream is bad... it is not art anymore !!

Fantastic outfits btw, my fave is the first one !
And do go to the USA, seriously !

Isabel said...

i love the sequined top!

drollgirl said...

PinkBow said...

those shorts are fantastic, such a great wardrobe item that will go with just about everything

S.Elisabeth said...

This looks is so gorgeous on you!

And ehh you're not missing much in the US (Though I'm trapped in suburbia; really can't speak for the cities!). I'm dying to go to southeast Asia or Europe SO bad!

Clare said...

You look awesome! You have the greatest figure ever! And I agree with S. Elisabeth! You aren't missing much here!

Kazuko said...

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

These shorts are amazing! Love the cut. Tres chic. And you must come back to America. NY in particular. Sorry I'm biased :)

Hope you're having a good Monday!

Kristin said...

Marz said...

I love this outfit. And Michael Kors is a genius. I love a majority of his designs all the time. He just speaks to my own aesthetic sense

love the first pic, that tank looks soo good with those shorts + thanks for the award!

Pratishtha Durga said...

WOw! You look superb in the first picture. And ROFL over the explanation of your grumpy expression. that's one hot pair of shorts. Wish I had legs like that!

gorgeousclara said...

thanks!

love the second outfit!

Haute World said...

I really like that disco-ball tank in the first pic... reminds me of Margiela 08. I'm in search of a new pair of tailored black shorts after mine disappeared after our last move (although I'm not to keen on the shorts + tights look, but overall one of the most versatile wardrobe staples).

We plan on going to the States next year again. I haven't visited family in LA since the mid 90s when I was still going to school! Probably because I keep going back to NYC instead...

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

I really do like the outfit in the first picture. So casual and yet so chic. Am not mad about America at the moment. Lived in New York for over five years. Perhaps I shall return someday. You really ought to re-vist America so that you can meet up with Couture Millinery Atelier and your family;-)

Kiyo said...

I love the high waisted shorts, the silhouette is just so perfect!

Toni said...
