Politan Designs were kind enough to send me this vibrant ankara Ina Mini skirt to style, and as soon as I opened the package, I immediately fell in love with the flirty summery cut! It was another sunny day in Seattle (we've been getting a lot of sun lately, woot!), a perfect opportunity to throw on some color, and I opted for this cream laced cropped top and nude accessories to balance out the louder colored skirt. I have to say lately I've been really into baggy bohemian clothing (lol) thus it was refreshing spending the morning getting dolled up in more fitting clothings, shooting with the lovely Kimmy after so long, and having delicious smoothies afterwards!

Another great thing about this skirt is its versatility! An alternate outfit I considered was - nude flats, a more casual cut for a cropped top (here), a wide brim floppy hat and my faux leather buckled backpack (exact available here). This would make for the perfect day time look at a park or BBQ with friends!







 In other news, I can't wait for the long weekend and festivities around 4th of July to roll in! What do you have planned for Independence Day! I'm tempted to make themed cupcakes and cookies the day before! Hmm, I foresee a lot of good eats this weekend :)
