Organic Romantic

Recently I was inspired by an organic cotton top I saw on ModCloth to create this set on Polyvore.

Whether you’re picnicking in the park, biking down the street, or strolling at the mall, this set lets you express the softer side of this summer’s mood. A pretty, floral top in organic cotton by Right By Nature from ModCloth pairs perfectly with ISDA & Co‘s Micro 26″ pant designed in San Francisco. Frilly and fun sustainable design exists!
