Over the summer, I was browsing the Tuckernuck site, as I spent much of my downtime doing. During this time, I was introduced to Ro’s Garden. The Clorinda Kurta (as seen here, here, and here) promptly found a home in my closet and I wore it over and over this summer and into autumn. It is one of the easiest items to both care for and wear.
I discovered that Ro’s Garden was going to incorporate the block print featured on the Clorinda Kurta (albeit in an alternate colorway) on an upcoming pre-spring style, to which I thought, “SIGN ME UP.” The print is a bright medium shade blue flower petals with navy print stems. This differed from the Clorinda Kurta, in that the kurta has green petals with black stems.
Let’s talk about the style. The empire waist makes it perfect for eating / drinking a bit too much at brunch and scampering about Georgetown once it warms up. Initially I was concerned that it might be too short, but it exceeds fingertip length. (There is a sister style available with a longer hemline and the same print.) It arrived with a slip, which is an underrated wardrobe necessity that I will be wearing with more than just this frock. I like it both buttoned up to the top and leaving the buttons open. And again, can we talk about the block print? It is everything.
I cannot wait to pack this in my first post-COVID-19 vacation. I already started planning our trip to Capri.
This headband is the perfect accessory for the dress… And post-partum hair loss at the upper temples. Though I love all Jennifer Behr headbands, the turban headband in particular flattens out my crazy gray regrowth. The regrowth is longer and therefore more manageable now, but it started out looking a bit like a Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
Glass half full: At least my upper temples are no longer bald.
Right now Jennifer Behr is 30 percent off site wide. If you are in love with the headbands but have reservation about the price, now is the moment to pull the trigger.
