Look of the Week: Red, White and Blue

I was sad to have missed out on the Canada Day festivities because I was working, so when we went shopping in the States on July 4th I thought it would be fun to play with some patriotic colours (even if it was in favour of our neighbours to the south). Of course, for such a vintage-inspired outfit, only the backdrop of The Little White House (and a glass of lavender lemonade) would do...

The crop top is a hot item this summer, so I thought I'd play around with how to wear it; in this outfit, it definitely has a retro vibe to it and is a little more conservative than showing full-out midriff. If you're not comfortable sporting too much skin with a crop top, a high waisted skirt like this (or some high waisted shorts) are a great option. A straw fedora keeps the look from being overly vintage-inspired and makes the outfit beach-ready.

You'll notice I'm wearing flats, which I can't even remember the last time I did on this blog! The girly volume of the skirt goes well with ballet-type flats, but would also look equally good with some vintage kitten heels.
