|Via Lachlan Bailey for Vogue UK|
It's the unofficial last weekend of summer and I'm loving every minute of it. I have been looking forward to this three day weekend for quite some time. A weekend spent in K Jacques and lightweight breezy little dresses. Labor Day weekend is always a nice little calm before the storm. Even though it's hot and I'm counting on at least a few more weeks of summer weather; slowly my mind is drifting to autumn.
When I saw this shoot in Vogue UK weeks ago I filed it away under autumn inspiration. Lachlan Bailey captured the elegant ladylike style that feels authentically me. I can imagine myself navigating the city in these looks. There's a quiet assurance and a confidence to these "grown up" looks. The ever enchanting Arizona Muse makes this editorial all the more stunning. Don't you just love her?
It's nice to come across an editorial that instantly makes you feel at home. Ladylike style is having a moment right now, but truthfully I'll take these looks anytime. Give me a crisp breezy day, a skirt in a subtle length and a drapey blouse to ease into fall.
How's your weekend so far?
PS- I know a lot of people are shy about embracing this skirt length. A tad shorter would be more suitable for me, but I enjoy wearing a variety of skirt lengths with the exception of the maxi skirt. The maxi skirt looks fabulous on others, but just doesn't work for me.
