Woo hoo! Wishing everyone a very happy start to Spring! I can already feel the difference in the air here – the temperature is rising and the passing rain showers have begun (although we could always use more for our cisterns, please!)
If you’ve been in winter for the past few months, I am sure this comes as a BIG warm welcome. You can finally begin shedding your heavy winter layers and officially start dreaming of straw hats and floral frocks.
For us islanders, the breeze has slowed down, the heat has turned up, and the cardigans have been put away (and, yes, after writing that I do realize I may be the only person in the Caribbean who needs a cardigan..) but summer will swiftly be upon us, and it’s time to begin shifting our wardrobe!
And what screams warm weather more than Spring 2021’s latest trend: the micro mini skirt!?
Now, honestly, I haven’t been into mini skirts since high school (I’m not even going to tell you how long ago THAT was) but I have had a thing for matching sets lately – and when I stumbled across this colorful ruffled set, I simply could not resist. The smocked texture is IRRESISTIBLE and the pink and green floral print makes my heart sing happy songs. I’m going to be wearing this alllll summer long, especially to the beach. Plus an added bonus, the top also pairs perfectly with any pair of jeans you already own for a day-to-night transition. It’s a win, win all around.
I’ve linked this exact set, as well as rounded up some of my favorite pieces with similar styles below.
