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.

What collaboration wouldn’t be complete without a few of my favorite picks. Word on the street is that  Consuelo Castiglioni, the Found and Creative Director of Marni, really out did herself with this line because the items look and feel like actual Marni. You better believe I’m Cali bound for this little debut.

All of the madness for Marni drops March 8th at selected H&M stores. Find a store nearest you here
