Ouida's Pick

"I like this outfit because of the shape and the fabric of the dress. It is sophisticated artistry.  The boots are comfortable yet edgy with a sensible 2-inch heel.  The hat is a fun, classic Georgia O'Keefe-inspired style." - Ouida Chichester, Blanc Boutique-San Anselmo

Perfect Transitional Cottons (we think Audrey would approve)

There's a reason stylists consistently cite the classic cotton blouse as a must-have in any fashionista's closet....the styling options are endless!  These gems multi-task seasonally as well as purposefully. From running errands to office to dinner to swim cover-up to creating a chic menswear look to even wearing it with a sweeping, full-length skirt for a DRAMATIC look for evening (my fave!)......whew! What a tried and true friend she is in our closet! Blanc Boutique has fabulous new options to have fun trying and styling YOUR way. Audrey did, why don't you? (Shown: Ticca Japanese cotton striped shirt dress and Pas De Calais Japanese cotton blouse)

Cool Little Things

Don’t lose your cool!  Some of Blanc’s favorite ways to beat the heat are found in your very own summer garden (or your favorite market filled with fresh things from Mother Nature).

Refreshing Cucumber, Celery and Lemon  Drink (Ouida loves to bring this one to work on a hot day!)

Solavedi Organics 100% Organic Rosewater Spray (Blanc Boutique $13)

Blanc likes to cool down with a refreshing  spray of Solavedi Organic pesticide-free and toxic-chemical-free rosewater spray made from steam distilled organically grown roses.  Flowers are known to have healing abilities while also promoting specific moods and emotions.
