Styling Dulce de Leche


Dulce de Leche is a henley inspired shirt with feminine detailing. This piece could be equally comfortable grocery shopping or out on a date, but when I think about wearing this piece, I imagine cool ocean breezes on a hot day and the sun beating down on me.

Someone recently lamented the return of palazzo pants. Frankly, I refuse to acknowledge that they were ever out of style, but I also won't rule out the viability of a kaftan in the right situation, so call me Mrs Roper and get off my lawn, you whipper snappers.


Paired with soft muted palazzo pants, sweet floral flats and a large brimmed sun hat, I think Dulce de Leche can be carefree and comfortable while remaining flattering and feminine. Accessories are chosen for their bright colors in different hues but a similar intensity to the pullover. The only thing missing from this resort getaway look is a comfortable chaise and that guilty pleasure book you don't want to be seen reading in public.


love! i'm a fan of the palazzo too.

I almost spewed coffee on the monitor with the Mrs. Roper mention.

As for the palazzo pants...I loved them too, and paired with this feminine pattern, they are a perfect match. And if you happen to have a pool in your back yard, like I do, go right ahead and create that resort getaway, grab a cool adult beverage, that special book and forget everything on the other side of the fence....


All of your style ideas for each design are wonderful. Well done.

come and knock on my dooorrr. we've been waiting for youuuuuuu.

Palazzo pants are *awesome*.

I'd so wear those pants...but I'm in love with the sweet flower shoes! :)

Yeah, I have a pair of Palazzo in the closet I love, love, a crimped rayon or some-such fabric, patterned floral (maybe jungle Nagel is a better description) of deep maroon, spicy tan, olive and black. Your Dulce de Leche in a yarn color of the same name would give me a fine look -- Now, where are those needles..?

Gee. Thanks, Mrs. Roeper!

Oh, don't get me started on palazzo pants, I LOVE them...
