I will be completely honest, the inspiration for this look came from a street photo I saw during Australian Fashion Week. The girl in the photo wore her bikini top with a very high wasted skirt and sweater (inspiration seen here). I loved the idea of this ensemble so much that I had to recreate it for myself. I chose to wear clashing prints underneath a vintage frock and tailored blazer. The clash keeps things young and fashion forward while the blazer on top keeps things sophisticated and balances everything out. Being a Florida girl turned California girl, I love any excuse to break out my bikinis so this is just another way to wear it.
