Summer Whimsy

On a warm and sunny summer evening there's nothing better than a light and airy all white ensemble, in my opinion. I generally tend to stray away from pants during the warmer months. 

I wore this outfit to an outdoor concert at a nearby apple orchard. It was a blanket in the grass kind of situation. A flowing maxi is the perfect piece for that kind of evening, because it provides the coverage necessary to be able to sit comfortably.

I love a white look with gold accents, especially if you've got a warm post beach vacation tan going on. While an ivory pale complexion is beautiful with a winter white look, there is something about being tan and wearing all white on a warm evening. To me, it's the epitome of 'glowing'.

What I'm wearing - skirt: vintage ralph lauren // blouse: 1940's vintage // sandals: sam edelman // sunglasses: kate spade

I've been loving milkmaid braids lately. It allows wild summer air dried hair to look good in a moments notice. I'll be sharing my tips and tricks when milkmaid braiding very soon.

In an orchard, one must frolic with the trees. To be honest, I was just trying to imitate some of the bloggers out there who are so good at interacting with nature (trees, flowers, etc.) while posing. It's definitely not my forte.
