It’s time for a look at an outfit from the Miss Candyfloss “Exquisite” collection that I almost didn’t order…the Minerva-Lee double collared blazer and the Cressida-Lee swing skirt with buttons!
In general, I prefer wearing dresses to skirts, because dresses are so much easier (no worries about what top you’re going to pair with them), and you can worry a bit less about the fit (no fussy waistband as long as the rest of the garment fits). I had a dress that I was planning to order from Miss Candyfloss (the lovely Xanthe-Mai blazer dress if you were wondering), and I was really looking forward to it, and then I saw this beautiful skirt suit styled a few different ways, and I knew that I had to add it my wardrobe instead.
I accessorized with blue and white Splendette Duchess Bangles and a cute Erstwilder bird brooch, plus some lacy gloves and my favorite hat:
The jacket is the most gorgeous shade of blue! I love the double collar, and the contrasting cuffs and buttons.
One of the best features of the jacket, though, you only see from behind…it has the most elegant peplum!
I also love that the skirt buttons all the way down the front…I think that will provide some interesting styling opportunities next summer!
This look is so lovely…I’m glad I decided against my standard dress for once!
I’m looking forward to pairing the jacket with some of my dresses, and the skirt is going to be a great year-round piece that will go with so many things!
