Considering how hot it has been in New York these last couple of weeks, I wonder why people find it weird whenever I mention that I find summer to be miserable. Even so I’ve taken it as a personal challenge over the last 4 years to embrace the season as much as I can. Well, at least beyond the one thing I do enjoy which is time at the beach or pool.
For me this has translated to building out a warm weather wardrobe with pieces that are comfortable to wear that also fit into my personal style as much as possible. Seldom do those ever meet and if they do it is rarely in my size or my budget, so you already know that this has been a process. Thankfully I am now in a position financially that allows me to (sometimes) shop outside the usual plus size retailers, in favor of other small businesses like Cosmic Drifters.
Cosmic Drifters is a UK-based brand that I have been low-key stalking on Instagram for a while now. They are one of the few witchy-aesthetic brands that I’ve found to be fairly inclusive across all of their products. I don’t believe that I ever mentioned this here but I did decide to treat myself a bit this year for my birthday, with this skirt being one of the bigger purchases. I ordered it back in May and I spared no time in styling it as soon as I received it this month.
