I am and always have been a dresses-and-skirts kind of gal. Maybe the unique thrill of twirling around in a perfectly flowy skirt I experienced as a little girl never quite wore off. Whatever it may be, I find them incomparably comfortable, flirty, and chic. Unsurprisingly, I immediately fell inlove with this silk pastel camouflage dress from uber talented Ukrainian designer Ksenia Schnaider’s SS13 collection and just knew we had to carry it at ANTHOM – and of course I had to buy one for myself :) This time I paired it with an edgy mesh BCBG bootie (in heavy rotation in my closet) but I’m also excited to wear it more casually with flats or with pink bow heels for an upcoming wedding. What about you? Have you found the perfect item for summer yet?
