All beautiful as per your normal elegant standard, but loving the Andy & Debb (new name to me too!) and the Tahari above all.

Terrific sheers and textures on the legs too --- it will be a wonderful autumn ce n'est pas?

Oh if I could write an ode to the shift dress. It is one of those items which, even if for some reason you are in dire confusion as to what to wear, slip on one of these and it is instant style. Gorgeous selection. :)
