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.
