Even though we’re yet to jet off on our holiday, I’ve already been finding myself feeling inspired by the promise of a beachside retreat, and the possibilities of a few new wardrobe additions.
While I got this one shoulder ruffle top from Faithfull, with the full intent of wearing it solely as resort wear, I love how it pairs with this a-line mini skirt I picked up from RUBY last year. The cotton drill adds structure, where the linen gives movement and flow, and a pair of strappy heeled sandals finish off the look. As it cools down, I feel like this look also would work well with a little skivvy paired underneath, and a slick pair of sock booties – like these ones from Topshop (which are an incredible dupe for the Balenciaga knife boots).
It’s a pretty simple combination (like practically all my outfits…!), that still feels like a step outside my comfort zone; the subtle flash of midriff is typically something I’d usually avoid, but living in a city where summer temps are usually in the high 30s, I figure, why not just embrace it?
