It’s sweltering hot and humid in Toronto this week, especially today – fitting for the first official day of summer! I decided to keep today’s Dainty Outfit light and airy with a big pop of colour for the kickoff to summer 2012.
I love this super dainty look because it’s suitable for the office, while keeping me cool outdoors. The pleated skirt from Mendocino is an amazing coral-pink colour and the light fabric maintains its shape and doesn’t wrinkle. The cream blouse is from Smart Set and I love the sheer black applique “bib” on top! It’s so eye-catching and pulls in black accessories like my belt, shoes and handbag beautifully!
The pattern on the blouse inspired me to choose braided silver jewellery and a black braided skinny belt. Since the skirt is a little short and school-girlish, I decided not to wear high-heels today and opted for short wedge ankle strap sandals from Nine West. I love the way it came together!
