Why: Give this girl a circle skirt and she’s one happy lady! I’ve been waiting for a
warm hot day to wear this dress and I think today will be perfect for it!
First up - thank you for all of the tweets and facebook comments regarding the sentiment of my last outfit post. If you haven’t read it, the jist is that it feels WAY better to wear what makes YOU happy than it does to feel out of your comfort zone in trends that someone else dictates.
This dress is a perfect example of something that I just love Love LOVE! I think I could live the entire summer is full circle skirts and now I feel like I need to get to my sewing machine and whip up some more dresses and skirts! I’m debating making the B5882 dress again, this time with a pink rose on a white ground. Could be quite pretty! I also wanna do some yellow dirndl or circle skirts to wear with white tee shirts or chambray skirts.
Isn’t the print on this dress nutty? It has such a Hawaiian 1950s feel to it, I almost wish I would have done my hair in a Victory Roll (which I’ve been practicing and hope to show off some day this week!). I love the humor in novelty prints (like feathers, beetles and guitars), but parrots and pineapples take the cake.
