Simply Sylvia is the eponymous style diary of a former Parisian who brings that effortless, “je ne sais quoi” touch to life and style in the nation’s capital. Sylvia pursued her childhood dream to move to Paris to work in fashion after finishing college, and the experience changed her forever. She learned not only about style and edge, but about what the French call l’art de vivre…the art of life.

Sylvia eventually left the world of fashion to practice law for many years and is now based in Washington, D.C., but she hasn’t given up her sartorial penchant or the pursuit of a well-lived life.  She shares that life with her husband, a busy partner at a major law firm, and a blended household that includes three teenagers attending various schools in the District, and her eldest son who currently resides in London.

A fashion chameleon, Sylvia is a frequent world traveler, a fitness enthusiast, and an avid style seeker. She founded the Simply Sylvia blog to share the fashion, places, people and experiences that inspire her. She hopes they will inspire you too.
