Peach satin BRA ($62), Victorian cotton PANTALONS ($68), Victorian lace duster DRESS ($275), shell BANGLES ($25), and oyster shell EARRINGS ($32)
There’s nothing quite like an early summer morning at the beach – breathing in the solitude of your own private shore, before the sands become abuzz with fellow sun worshipers.
This month’s style shoot translates nature’s beauty into the quintessential clothing for enjoying those sweet solo moments.
You can spot the ocean’s subtle inspiration in the details. The whorls of a seashell give way to loose pleats and pintucks. The soft colors of beach glass transform into jewels. The textures of coral reflect in ruffles.
Drink in the calm now friends, the crowds are not far behind.
