Day to Evening: Floral

This past week has been quite an intense one work-wise, but it all resulted in such a great way! There were times throughout the week when it even felt a bit difficult to keep up with news, online activities, and blog reading. When this occurs I find that's when a little relaxing session is in order. So, I did exactly that ... not in the conventional sense. This particular time, it was more of a sewing studio session followed by gourmet cooking in the kitchen with new and longtime friends. 

I wore this outfit weeks ago to visit a friend in the countryside. I decided to add a colour blocked top with minimal accessories this time, which worked out perfectly since we were off to attend an art showing in someone's beautiful backyard garden that day.
I haven't brought out this skirt as much as I would have liked to this season at all; although I do believe I gave it a fair amount of wear most of last year. Sometimes it's not only a print that strikes me, it's the rhythmical combination of colours!

This skirt is one of those sweet melodies of romantic floral that can easily set the tone for a lovely day. I suppose it's because of the simplicity in the silhouette. A marvellous above-the-knee flare skirt certainly doesn't hurt a fashion welcome to summer, even for only a short-lived sun break in the day.

  5. What a perfect look for a day in the country, Madison! I can't get overhow lovely and romantic your skirt is,h it's a shame you haven't worn it more this year but I find that happens very easily... I seem to go in phases with my clothes, wearing some things repeatedly while others are temporarily forgotten. But I think it just makes rediscovering those pieces more special :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  25. Madison, I saw your cute outfit on Instagram! I couldn't wait to read your post. The look is so seamless I could've sworn it was a DRESS. It's a top & skirt! Well they look fabulous together. It's the perfect pairing. I know how you feel. I did some spa time for myself today. Sometimes things become a little to monotonous. You have to break and getaway. Have a great weekend!

  54. Those colors are gorgeous on you! I love that you took the time to do some things that relaxed you. I'm the same, took a big 2 and a half hour session cleaning up the garden until my legs were shaking (it was like doing 1,000 squats - cleaning up all the leaves) and dead-heading roses. I felt amazing afterward though, better than sleep :) Hope you're off to a wonderful new week Madison!
