Afternoon Delight

Apparently, I have a thing for blue hued dresses and picturesque doors as my backdrops. Oh well, it's not my fault that every nook and cranny of Old San Juan inspires one to wear midi-dresses and explore its cobbled  stone streets and alleys; all whilst the sunset is greeting its beloved shadows. Yet, unlike the dusk that takes over every day, two tones that never turn dull are: blue and mustard. (A truly classic and expressive combination, if I say so myself.) 
On that account, instead of sporting my go-to mustard purse, I decided that these doors were going to do the trick and flatter my vintage dress just as nicely. The instant I spotted this piece, I was automatically reminded of Derek Lam's SS'14 collection where plaid's  more easy going cousin took over the runway.  This time around though, I went ahead of the seasons and gave this trend a subtle Caribbean twist; choosing to wear it with my they-go-with-everything sandals, and tame the dress' oversized-ness with a belt
