Rosy Roses

This outfit is one of the few times I break my self-imposed rule of not wearing two girly items together (i.e. no lace top with pink skirt, that kind of thing). Since I don’t have many downright “girly” clothes, that usually isn’t a problem. But this top and this skirt are so appropriate this week’s SIA – “The Roses of Heliogabalus” – that I couldn’t pass them up. And of course, the sandals are the perfect finishing touch to mimic the Roman sandals.

P/S: Last time I wore this skirt I said I was going to shorten it, and I did try pinning it up to see how it’d look, but after some consideration, I decided I like the longer length.

Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for other interpretations of this painting!

  1. Beautiful outfit and perfect for the inspiration piece. I love this look on you!

  2. Lovely! Even though you’re pairing two “girly” items together, the shirt is a tailored, button-front design, which helps balance out the floral print 🙂
