Summary: What color is the sky in Michelle Smith’s world? Blue. Navy blue.When I think of Milly I think of pretty clothes with big gold buttons. This season I think of Milly as preppy sportswear with big gold buttons. If you love the preppy hues of kelly green, navy with ivory pipping and the occasional brown sheath, not to mention a sweater tied around your neck, then this is the collection for you. Straight out of the "Preppy Handbook" it made me yearn for my Bermuda bag with the changeable covers and summers on The Cape.
