SUNFLOWER

Growing up at the beach, half of my wardrobe consisted of swimwear and cover-ups, and I still enjoy getting more wear out of them than most people do. It may be September, but I am intent on wearing my maillots as long as the weather permits. So far, based on September's weather, I've wanted to wear little else.


This is an amazing Escada swim outfit I found at The Trunk Show in Charleston, SC. It is a one-piece swimsuit with matching gauze skirt. I was so excited to find this set in my size and in such a sunny color.

The shoes are Sigerson Morrison lambskin heels with copper mesh (LOVE). This is my first time wearing them outside! The hat is by the San Diego Hat Company, the shades are vintage Ray-Bans, and the belt is from Goodwill.

The palette of this outfit and these photos keeps reminding me of Van Gogh's Sunflowers. It is not actually one of my favorite paintings, but it definitely reflects the mood, don't you think?


Long live summer!

  3. I like how you relate your dress to art. I guess that's the point of the blog. But I like it. Yes I see the resemblance with Van Gogh but I also hate that painting; the flowers look dead!!

    Awesome shoes.
