Summer Style

IMG_3398

 

Today, I am featuring my ready-to-go summer style.  The linen sarouel skirt is from amalthee-creations.  These pieces are hand-made in the south of France.  This is a linen sarouel skirt in a sunny straw color.  The linen scarf I ordered in the same color is used as a wrap belt to give me more coverage at the waist since the top is SO cropped.

The top is a silk/cotton mix with an antique kimono insert.  I had it made for me by a shop on Etsy using the measurements from my favorite Zara kimono top.  This top came back shorter than expected, though.

This outfit is created from a dress and kimono top  from Amalthee-Creations.  I opened the dress in the front and layered it over my black jersey Eileen Fisher harem pants.  The resin bead necklace if from a shop in Canada, Shonmodern.  It is a Japanese design made with faceted rectangle beads.  I can double-wrap this necklace or wear it long.  Sharryn, from The Stylish Woman, featured both of these shops on her IG account.  I took the next step after seeing these posts on her account and did some exploring. I liked what I saw!

Here is the kimono top paired with a different color sarouel skirt. I have on reversible sandals from Modzori and two obi belts layered at the waist.

A closer look at the outfit.  The lariat necklace is from LuvAJ and the earrings are from Adornmonde…both California based companies.

Here is the Amalthee-Creations dress without the kimono.  I have the Shonmodern bead necklace and Modzori sandals with it.  The hat is from Sole Society ( this hat is no longer available at the online site, but I have included a link for other fabulous hats on sale there, now)

A little straw bucket bag from Zara and vintage black bakelite bangles finish off this summer style outfit.

    1. Thank you, Georgia! I did not think anyone was reading the posts because there were so few comments, to I almost let my subscription to WordPress expire. Elizabeth, thevintagegoddess.net, convinced me to stay. She explained that a lot of people read it, but just don’t comment. I hope she is right. IG is easier and this is a lot of work…but if people are interested I will keep it up!
