As winter is suppressed and the sun’s presence returns, Mother Nature gives back life and warmth to our surroundings. We shed our thick coats and boots for shorts and flip-flops. Our go-to outfit is no longer a cozy black sweater, but instead a fun and playful sundress. Slowly but surely, bits of color appear in all aspects of our life, including our wardrobe. We trade out a color scheme of blacks and greys for vibrant colors, much like the wings of a butterfly.
If you have not been to the butterfly exhibit at the Henry Doorly Zoo, I highly suggest adding it to your list of summer to-dos. Inside an all-window, temperature regulated room are hundreds of butterflies all varying in size and color. They fly around freely from plant to plant and if your karma is good, one may land on you. What better place to draw inspiration for your summer wardrobe than from a colorful butterfly?
Our cream button-up top with the butterfly collar that draws inspiration straight from the Monarch butterfly is the perfect top for the warm summer days ahead of us. Pair it with shorts and some sunnies and you are good to go.
We all know embroidery is the latest trend so why not have a large butterfly embroidered across your back? Our black embroidered sweatshirt is a MUST and looks fly (see what I did there?) with a denim skirt, a ball cap, and some sneakers.
There is nothing I love more than getting inspiration from nature, so I must thank the butterflies and the Henry Doorly Zoo for being my muse this summer!
