Hi there! 

If you follow my blog IG @carolinasantosread you might remember one of my Spring/Summer NYFW inspirations from the Altuzarra (and others) runway involved the citrus fruit trend for Spring 2017. There's something very Italian about this trend and I wanted to feature it in a resort segment.

The look above is from DressLilly.com and is a complete steal under 20 bucks! Definitely the look for less. I love a two piece like this that can be worn separately or together, but there are so many other ways to wear this trend such as on a top, dress, or just the accessories like a lemon earring with a red dress. It makes me want to cruise up the Amalfi coast in Italy. It's fun, flirty, and fresh instead of just bright colors and florals for Spring. I accessorized it with Jack Rogers sandals and Celine bag. 

I'm currently in Austin, TX on a girls trip and will be blogging some more resortwear next, but of a more Western variety. Stay tuned!
