Light As Air

Hello! I hope that you guys have been enjoying May and the wonderful weather that May brings with it. I know that my posts have been few and far in between so far this month. However, I should (hopefully) be posting regularly throughout the rest of this month.

My outfit today embraced the delicate pastels that I am rather fond of. I styled my look around this lilac & white checked dress. One of the things that I like about this dress is the retro shape; it is very fitted from the waist up and from the waist down, the skirt of the dress flares out. I adore these "fit and flare" types of dresses for two reasons:

1. I cannot resist anything retro or vintage inspired! This dress style was widely popular in the 1950's.
 
2. The shape is very flattering to my figure. "Fit and flare" dresses immediately draw attention to the waist and legs.

To emphasize the lightness of the colors present in the dress, I donned a pair of white canvas flats as well as a pair of white heart sunglasses and a white daisy chain. The way the pastel colors combined to create a light-as-air, dainty look thrilled my aesthetic.

And of course, I had to grab an ethereal, purple flower to pose with for the photos!

Purple & white checked dress: Isaac Mizrahi for Target
White canvas flats: Wet Seal
White daisy chain: DIY
White heart sunglasses: c/o Giant Vintage

  2. Lovely outfit! This look reminds me of a Lana Del Rey song; I think it's the mix of the floral crown, heart shaped sunglasses, and canvas sneakers :)
