Ask and you shall receive. Lately on stories I have been getting a lot of people messaging me about what I’m wearing. I will never be a fashion blogger, but I have decided to get over my dislike of photos of myself and do more fashion posts! I think my interior design style and fashion style translate well with each other and I’m happy to share clothing finds that I’m loving. I have a hard time shopping for my body frame and I’m sure others feel the same. So, if I can help anyone else out then I’m happy to pose for a photo and also scream at Jon when he doesn’t get the shot I envisioned in my head. Totally kidding about the screaming part, but he might disagree.
This past weekend we ventured into Connecticut and did a little sight seeing around Darien at Rowayton. How I have never been to Rowayton is beyond me. It’s a stunning seaside town and I was obsessed with every square inch of it. I’m already looking into house rentals for next summer.
The perfectly striped preppy skirt had arrived earlier in the week and I knew I just had to wear it. It was a great mix of nautical/summer. Ideally I had been dying for this skirt, but at close to $700 it wasn’t going to happen. Amazon has become my secret weapon when it comes to finding trendy clothes in an affordable price range and once again it did not disappoint with this striped swing skirts!!!! They even have it in this adorable gingham version. I also found this longer striped skirt that has currently been added to my shopping cart.
I’m in love and I have never gotten some many compliments on a skirt!
I love that it’s elastic, which makes it super comfy and how cute is the ruffle border that wraps around the skirt.
Girls, please tell me you are like me and love doing a good angle with your arm when you take a photo. Haha. Such a silly thing, but so many people do it to get a flattering shot. I paired my skirt with a sunny yellow t-shirt, tortoise shell sunnies and colorful flat sandals.
The last touch? My massive straw bag (similar version currently 50% off with code ENDOFSEASON)
I’m pretty obsessed with the whole look and looking forward to wearing the skirt again throughout the early Fall with a couple of adjustments.
