There’s something I feel I should clarify upfront… this is not a Coke ad. I bet I could have fooled you otherwise, right?! *insert monkey covering eyes emoji*

While in Italy last week, I remember being completely exhausted, hot, most likely smelly while waiting for my train. As I scanned the station, my eyes stopped on an image… it was a life-sized poster of a glamorous, carefree girl whistfully holding her refreshing, ice-cold Coke up to her lips. She wasn’t exhausted. She wasn’t uncomfortably hot. And she definitely wasn’t smelly… I’m positive she was wearing some sort of fabulous fragrance.

I also needed to be like her.

So, I immediately went to the concessions stand and bought a Coke for myself. And yes, I did so knowing full-well it was simply because I saw that ad.

When it came to photographing this darling white skirt and blouse ensemble at one of my favorite Dallas coffee spots, Halcyon, I shunned the latte for yet another coke. And marketing executives  around the world rejoiced.

Advertising, y’all. It’ll get ya.

Now that I’ve finished what may have been the most rambly intro to any Lonestar Southern blog post ever (what a welcome if you’re new around here… I’m sane, I promise!) let’s get to the real star of this show… this J.Crew linen ruffle skirt! If I could even explain just how fabulous the fit is. It’s the perfect mix of classic femininity and a bit of flirty fun. I don’t think I’ll be able to take it off the rest of summer!

Since sizing is key, I want to share that I purchased a 0 petite in this number. If you’re on the shorter side (I’m 5’2″) I definitely recommend the petite version! Also, be warned that it comes in navy and red as well. I’m adding the red to my cart right after I finish this post!

Oh y’all. I just realized the red would be even better with a coke bottle. What. do you say…  do we make this a thing? ;)

Love from Texas,

Kate

P.S. I had so much fun photographing this with Claire Pedregon! Y’all need to check out her work here, she captures the most amazing couple moments!

    If the title didn’t say skirt in it, I probably would have though you were wearing a dress! The ruffle on the sleeve and the bottom of the skirt match perfectly in my opinion.

    You look great! Hasn’t J.Crew been killing lately? I’d been curious as to what was going to happen to the company with Jenna Lyons leaving and low sales, but their recent offerings have been knocking it out of the park in my opinion! P.S. I love the ramble intro!
