    When I saw the print from a distance I thought flowers..then I saw it a bit larger and it was beach balls…but no..It’s really the beach!! xxx

      Hehe, thank you ! There are so many different beach umbrellas on this elegant outfit that I suspect JC/DC was inspired by your wonderful “espadrilles” competition and decided to do his own virtual “beach umbrellas” competition … on one single outfit ! xxxxx

      C’est vrai, merci beaucoup ! On oublie parfois à quel point la Côte d’Azur est une si belle région, et la superbe collection de JC/DC (ah, ces parasols colorés !) nous le rappelle d’une bien belle façon ! XD

    The colorful retro print is eye-catching to say the least! What a fantastic summer jumpsuit.

    All those colourful beach umbrellas have me now longing for the sand and sea…
    and they standout so beautifully on the simple, yet oh-so chic jumpsuit…
    adore how the slender black belt sits high on the waist!!~ xo

    Goodness, I love jumpsuits and…..they never fit. Sigh. Time to get my own personal tailor.
