FAUNA CROP TOP: ℅ of Samantha Pleet SHORTS: Forever 21 (sold out, similar) SHOES: ASOS (sold out, similar) CLUTCH:Klear Klutch PHONE CASE:: ℅ Zero Gravity

I found it: the outfit I want to live in this summer! As you know, I am a huge fangirl over Samantha Pleet's designs - and this crop top is one of my very favorite pieces of hers ever. So imagine my surprise when, inside a little parcel from Samantha herself, tucked beside two of her beautiful lookbooks and a flower, was this crop top!!! ;_____; The graphic, tropical leaves that decorate this piece is paradisiacal and the scalloped hem is icing on the cake!

I decided to pair it with these simple high waisted shorts (that are SLIGHTLY shorter then I thought they would be…! Oh well, the parallels of shopping online), my trusty ASOS metallic flats (is silver a neutral? :*), and this darling flamingo printed Klear Klutch!

I can't think of a cuter, more apt for Spring/Summer print then pink flamingos and I have always loved the idea of a clear purse. Not only that, this clutch is truly beautifully made and is big enough to fit my important essentials - like heart sunglasses and my phone (which is outfitted in it's new Valentine's day candies covered case by Zero Gravity) AND a couple frivolities like my cute lipstick and compact (I love showing them off hehe)! I also adore this holographic version they have!


Two of Samantha's beautiful lookbooks and a beautiful fake flower like the ones featured in her S/S 2014 collection - finding these in my mailbox was like receiving a slice of magic from Samantha's world ♡


These were taken in my grandmother's beautiful garden - I just had to pick some of the stunning flowers and made a makeshift flower crown like the ones worn in Samantha's S/S lookbook! :*

I hope you are all had a nice Memorial Day weekend! Mine was low-key (read: boring) - but I did end up eating lots of ice cream and taking advantage of some sales. How did you spend yours? <3
