Watermelon Weather

It really feels like summertime now, which means I've got beach days and backyard barbecues on the brain a lot of the time. One of my favorite things about summer is that all of my favorite fruits will soon be in season. Although peaches will always top the list for me, there is something wonderful about perfectly-ripe watermelon in the summertime. And since I can never say no to a thematic outfit, I have a feeling I'll be wearing this scrumptious skirt from Unique Vintage quite a bit over the next couple of months!

I'll admit that I wasn't initially sold on this skirt, though I'm not exactly sure why. I'm really glad I took a chance on it though, because it's a really adorable option for more casual get-togethers. (I realize that my definition of casual might differ from that of others', but I'd so much rather wear a breezy and fun skirt than constrictive jeans!) Since I'm having a bit of a "moment" with off-the-shoulder silhouettes, I decided to pair it with this adorable basic black tee from UV – which is super soft and just a tiny bit sexy. I added a subtle popsicle necklace, my trusty boater hat and my favorite black flats to make a look that's perfectly put-together and yet appropriate for pretty much any summer event.

Thanks to everyone who expressed their well wishes on my post last week. Things are looking up now, and I'm feeling in a much better place this week. :) You're all the best. Have a great start to your week!


  1. Yay!! I was wondering when I'd spot you in this skirt! I love the hat paired with the outfit - very casual and breezy, indeed! I know what you mean, jeans just aren't comfortable when you wanna be casual and comfy!!

  2. Looks like such a fun skirt to wear! :)

  3. Such a cute skirt, I eat a lot of watermelon during summer so it really is perfect and I can really associate it with all things summer haha. It looks so good with a simple black top like this too. Gorgeous x

  4. I love this skirt on you! And I love how you've styled it, you are so beautiful.
    I'm not the biggest fan of watermelons, I love strawberries in the summer, but there is something very "summery" with fruit in general, especially watermelons.
    Hope you are having a lovely week!
    Much love,

  5. So pretty! This skirt really is one of the cutest and most delightfully fun fruit themed garments ever created.

  6. I love watermelon! It's my favorite fruit. It also makes a lovely skirt. So pretty and such a pretty outfit! I completely agree with your version of casual! A breezy fun skirt is so much better than constrictive jeans any day!

  7. So many of my friends both love and have this skirt, along with those flats too! And they simple rave about both!

    The skirt is simply adorable and too perfect for summer! Also the hat is darling!
