Flounce With Me

I am so happy that ruffles, florals, flounces and feminine dressing in general are making a comeback.  I want to bring back ladylike more formal dressing for day.  I think dressing modestly in beautiful clothes can be very empowering.  I wear clothes that I am excited to put on, that are lovely in fabrication, print or design and that I feel beautiful and comfortable in.  In summer I love cotton, it’s breathable, washable and keeps me somewhat cool.  I found this Rebecca Taylor skirt on sale.  I just can’t get enough of this style of skirt this season  (see my post on ruffle wrap skirts here).  Another thing I love about this skirt is that it has a little tie on the inside so that if the wind blows it open, it is tied to the side seem so you won’t have any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions on a windy day.

I am wearing a cotton Zara crop top with it.  It has flounce statement bell sleeves which I am also loving this season.  The earrings and sunglasses are from Zara.  The satin platform sandals are from Mango. Vintage wicker purse, vintage bracelets and hat.
