If you follow me on Snapchat (kelseykfashion), then you may have caught a glimpse of a riverside photoshoot during my New England tour last week. I had the privilege of being the subject for the incredibly talented Luke Wayne, in my hometown of Canton, CT. Although I often brag about California’s beauty, Connecticut deserves the East Coast crown. Lush and a little bit rustic, this charming town proved to be picture perfect last Thursday evening.
You cannot visit good ol’ Canton without a trip to Collinsville. Whether you’re grabbing a bite at LaSalle, or you’re out for a jaunt along the walking trail, this downtown area epitomizes the phrase, “Small Town USA.” Obviously I needed a picturesque outfit to go along with the picturesque setting! That is where the eyelash lace comes to play. Eyelash lace is very regal. This fine fabric has become a popular embellishment, and brands like For Love & Lemons and Free People often resort to this adornment. When I tried this look on for my mom she said, “Free People could put a tag on this and sell it as theirs!” She would be correct minus the hefty price tag. This set is barely over $40! Who’s excited?!
This ensemble makes a statement in and of itself. Not only is it a majestic look, but the fit is worth discussing! If you are looking for a way to instantly elongate the appearance of your legs, this skirt will do it. The built-in short shorts and sheer maxi skirt overlay will give you the boost you’ve always admired. Five inch heels won’t hurt either…I kept the accessories to a minimum because I did not want to take away from the overall look. I am already looking forward to rocking this outfit in the California sunshine.
