Friday's Fancies: Modern Day Scarlett O'Hara

For this week's Friday's Fancies linkup with Long Distance Loving, I'm inspired by the one and only, Scarlett O'Hara. I've been on a Gone with the Wind kick recently, so I figured I could cap off the week with some more classic movie inspiration. This look is inspired by the famous Twelve Oaks barbecue scene, where Scarlett O'Hara is able to rein in and play all of the southern gentlemen except for the ones that matter, Ashley Wilkes and Rhett Butler.

I loved the Miu Miu polka dot skirt and think the Rebecca Taylor blouse would be a great investment piece that could be worn with anything. The wedges are Gap, and are super comfortable and versatile. And, of course, I could not leave out that famous straw floppy hat! You wouldn't look reminiscent of Scarlett without it.

Here's to being the belle of the barbecue!

Modern Day Scarlett O'Hara


  1. Oh my gosh, what a fun concept! I might need to steal this idea for next week, but with another character {Gone with the Wind is one of my favorite movies though}.

    Visiting from Friday's Fancies. Have a fantastic weekend!


  2. Thank you! It really helped me get started, usually I don't know where to begin! I can't wait to check out your blog :)

  3. You would CERTAINLY be the belle of the bbq in this outfit! I adore the bright green in the skirt and the theme is fabulous :) hope you'll be joining in for another round of Friday's Fancies this week! xoxo {av}
