Flowers + Fauna

6.12.2012


 Tali silk tank c/o Alpinestars by Denise Focil
Rebecca Taylor floral skirt (we love this one too), 
Carpisa pink satchel (last seen here), 
Me Too sandals, 
Vintage charm necklace, 
Target gold leaf chain.

Lauren is so good at finding amazing pieces at Buffalo Exchange that I've decided I'm not allowed to go shopping there unless she's with me. Case in point: this A-line printed skirt that she creatively paired with the sweetest, barely-there, fly-print, tiered cami... yes, those are flies! But they look so cute, no? This pairing shouldn't look as good as it does, but for some reason it definitely works.

This was the perfect look as we stumbled upon a beach party brunch going on at Le Comptoire when we were in desperate need of food. As we sat there sipping on our Rossinis (rose with strawberry puree... delicious) Lauren came up with the best idea EVER for my upcoming housewarming party - a Hawaiian luau! My neighbor has an above ground pool in the backyard, so with a few tiki torches, some blow up sea animal floaties, and a big bowl of rum punch I'm thinking this could be my most fun party yet.

xx, M

  2. The print on the Rebecca Taylor skirt looked so dang familiar when I first saw it and heyyoo it's because I have the sheer billowy top from RT in the same print! I adore that tiered tank

  13. Very sweet outfit. The floral skirt can be quite 'stiff' but you paired it in such that the whole ensemble look quite cool :)

  23. I'm loving the mix of prints here! After all- flies & flowers just go together.

    I never had good luck at Buffalo Exchange either... I always find something amazing at the Beacon's Closet in Park Slope though.

    You're Luau housewarming party sounds amazing! Hope it's a good one.
