so far this summer has been quick (how is it august 1st already?), and very, very hot. even though we're smack in the middle of a major heatwave, i'm dreaming of running off to an island vacation.
Valentino's 2017 resort collection is a new favorite, and really captures my palm-tree-state-of-mind right now. it was inspired by Cuba, with cheerful tropical patterns: pineapples, hibiscus flowers, parrots, palm leaves and snakeskin.
it's the dream vacation wardrobe -- bright and bold, with a 1950s elegance. i love the tea length skirts and ladylike shapes.
while ruffled off-the-shoulder tops are all the rage right now, this simple knitted tunic feels fresh. especially when paired with piles of prints.
this floral pattern reminds me of a modern Marie Antoinette. also, note the pineapple earrings. #dies
