I absolutely loved this summery outfit, and the idea of taking great basics like a leather bag and striped tee to ground a more seasonal piece like the skirt. The basics are preppy, but the little bit of fun added by the floral and the turquoise make it not-too-serious. The idea of doing the same thing in a room, with an easily changed rug and accessories, makes perfect sense to lighten up a more traditional feeling space for summer!
