THE COLLECTION WITH THE PINEAPPLE DRESS
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
