Summer school is over and I finally have some time to
blog pose for oversaturated selfies! Because hot summer weather lasts forever until November here in my part of NorCal, I figured it was time to bust out some of my recent purchases.
I’ve been eyeing the black-background Eden floral pieces at Heart of Haute for months (coupon code available via the link!), but none of the options really spoke to me until I saw this two-piece Erika set on sale at Pinup Girl Clothing. As far as I know, this was a special set sold only at PUG, but there are other pretty styles available in the same colorful, summery Eden print fabric. The Elizabeth dress and the Elaine dress are available now via Heart of Haute’s website. If you want a skirt and top set similar to the Erika, you can find the Delilah Gypsy skirt and Delilah halter top in a similar print with a blue background.
I love the flirty playsuit look of this skirt and top set, and the colors are poppy-bright and stunning. The skirt is similar in cut to the Heart of Haute Gypsy skirt, but with a regular waistband instead of the attached tie belt. Since the Eden fabric color scheme is warm, the skirt will make a nice transitional piece in fall. The top has functional buttons down the front and a halter tie neckline.
I bought the set in L as my old Heart of Haute XLs now tend to be very big on me, and the fit is solid. The skirt waistband runs true to the size chart (31″), while the top runs a bit big in the waist.
