I will forever be obsessed with darling details and Parisian inspired femininity. So when I found this pretty plaid frock with it’s dropped waist, mix and match cold shoulder details I knew the key to styling it would be to keep it simple and sweet.
When wearing a dress that has a lot of personality I tend to keep the accessories and shoes simple and muted so it doesn’t take away from the woah factor. But don’t overlook the power of playing it down. Simplicity can add a lot to your look if you pay attention to detail. And I’m a girl that lives for the details!
I wanted to highlight the darling black ribbon bow detail of the shoulder, so I continued with a subtle motif of bows from head to toe.
Did you happen to catch it? (It’s in the band of my hat and the lace up of my sandals.)
And because I’ve not been able to stop wearing this boater hat I thought it gave it a charming retro Parisian feel. It completes the look and channels a youthful school girl charm (think Bridget Bardot and Madeline from the children’s book) without appearing cheesy.
