Calico, the fabric was originally from the city of Calicut in southwestern India. It was made by the traditional weavers called cāliyans. The raw fabric was dyed and printed in bright hues, and calico prints became popular in Europe. This month has felt a little lighter and brighter than usual, so I thought why not have some pastels and calico?
Btw, have you ever tried wearing your swimsuit outside the pool? I decided to wear my grey monokini with a Calico print self tie longline kimono. I feel a floral blazer is an easy way of introducing some femininity into your wardrobe. Helps keep it fresh and girly with patterns in pale and pastel tones. I combined it with some pastel hues by wearing a pair of pink culottes and front fold blue buckle heels.
Floral and Pastels have slightly creeped into my personal style aesthetics in the past few years and although I do not indulge in the concept fully, I do enjoy minor interpretations of the same. This look was an attempted marriage between my basic and my not-so basic style. While the look is bright, flirty and romantic, it is still comfortable and simple. I am personally in love with this look and would parade this everyday if I could!
