Country Comfort, Cotton Pique, Part 1

This summer white cotton seems to be everywhere. I can't remember a season in years in which this much beachy, chic has dominated the runways.
We've been drooling for some time over the various trends in whites and creams. From cotton piques, appliques, muslin, linen, and crochets, to everything in between...

We wanted to showcase two takes on the summer's hottest trend - thrifted, of course! And we couldn't think of a better backdrop than Calypso Home. For all things beautifully beach-y and serene, it was an ideal canvas to shoot in. Since we loved both looks, we thought we'd bring one blog devoted to each. Here's Tanya's take on summer style!
Above, her cotton pique dress was an item I picked up at Rag-O-Rama back in the spring in Atlanta, ((See here). I knew I'd find a way to showcase it, but when I saw white eyelet being double and triple belted at, I knew that was all it needed.
We grabbed two of my skinny military belts and one of Tanya's trifted beauties and pulled them all together.
Knotting and twisting works wonders. They don't need to be perfectly aligned. The racer-back speaks for itself, and an updo is an easy way to highlight the cut of the dress.
A simple knot, black rosette studs, and Guess spiked heels completed the ensemble.
And that's how we dress up our beachwear for a summer evening out!
