Botanical Blooms

Farfetch are an online retailer specializing in luxury fashion. I first discovered them when I was on the search for my Chloe 'Lauren' pumps (featured here and here) - shipping was swift from Paris to Providence, customer service was pleasant and communication was prompt, and the pumps were priced significantly less than at U.S. retailers.

I was therefore beside myself when they contacted me to participate in their "Botanical Blooms" style challenge to celebrate the arrival of summer, incorporating the Dolce & Gabbana floral pump into a look that shows off my personal style!

I drew inspiration from my most recent style posts - the summer and Memorial Day Weekend-inspired white shirtdress post, my posts in the botanical gardens and amongst the tulips (how appropriate!), lilac lace in the sunlight, and this Instagram outfit of the day (coming up on affecionada) - to create a Summer Days and Summer Nights style set.

My summer style is airy fabrics and feminine details and textures, manifested in dresses, blouses, and high-waisted shorts. In the day time, I prefer light and bright colors. With the daisy print Dolce & Gabbana pump, I would pair light pastel dresses, such as this light blue broderie anglaise tie-waist dress by Carven, this pretty pink Tory Burch eyelet lace shirtdress (you know me and my shirtdresses!), or this periwinkle flower lace shirtdress by Si-jay. If I felt like shorts, I'd pair these cream-colored high-waisted ones with this Moschino pussybow blouse, or these Dolce & Gabbana daisy embossed ones (daisies for days) with this lace blouse.
