Last 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 on the blog 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 even had it hemmed shorter after not being able to remove nail polish that I dropped on the bottom.
the Ro’s Garden dress
I discovered that Ro’s Garden was going to incorporate the block print featured on the Clorinda Kurta (albeit in an alternate colorway) on a 2021 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. Initially I was concerned that it might be too short, but it exceeds fingertip length. 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.
the Lele Sadoughi x Lilly Pulitzer headband
Lele Sadoughi and Lilly Pulitzer is the collaboration that we did not deserve. The embellished styles, particularly the one I am wearing in this post) seemed to promptly sell out. Several styles were restocked in the Lele Sadoughi internet storefront. Additionally ShopBop is a stockist of the collaboration, which is where I was able to score the sold-out-everywhere-else rhinestone encrusted headband.
