I’m going to be totally honest with you: blogging is my absolute favourite pass time. In a world of science and numbers an outlet for creativity is necessary. Each post becomes a mini project that I can’t wait to finish. Brainstorming what to do with new pieces and where is so much fun, I often think months in advance. That’s exactly what happened with this look. I bought this Mango dress nearly a year ago thinking it would be perfect to shoot in the Scottish Highlands. As fate would have it it rained every second of the way as we drove through the highlands, with the only exception being the clouds clearing during our hike in Glenfinnan…and I had no Plan B. That is, until we stumbled upon the sea side town of St. Andrew’s. The castle ruins were perched on a beautiful beach that served as the perfect backdrop for this stunning dress. I mean the print, the sleeves, the beautiful movement of the fabric in the wind…it’s a piece of art, really.
Of course I had also planned to purchase my Chloé Drew bag with the intention of pairing the two. Since this dress is so eye-catching I really wanted to keep the rest of the look simple- no jewelry, simple round sunnies, and unassuming brown combat boots. The femininity of the dress contrasted with the masculinity of the boots is a winning combo every time. I’ve seen Coach 1941 do this a lot (my favourite being Pre-Fall 2016) and I love it.
What do you think about the feminine-masculine combo?
