Skirt Week Take #1

First I’d like to say hello to all my new followers! I really appreciate each of you and have been trying my best to a) put together some content you might be interested in, b) return comments, and c) visit each of your blogs so I can “get to know you.” I know 18 doesn’t seem like much, but it is nearly double the friends I had 2 weeks ago! You all make me very happy. Now, down to business…

I set my goal at 4 entries for the upcoming Skirt Week, and am excited to cross the first from my list a good 2 weeks before the deadline. I actually started this one before I got pregnant with Reli (cough cough, she’s almost 2), and just never got around to finishing the waistband, adding the zipper, and hemming it. Well let’s face it, that means I cut it out and sewed two seams before putting it aside for something else.

 Now I know what you may be thinking…

Holy Brightness Batman!!

At least that’s what I was thinking when I pulled it from the pile. I’m not usually a big fan of colors or prints for that matter, and Ant says it looks like a cracked out Easter egg. (Ha! pun.) I’m trying to convince myself that it is more Lilly Pulitzer-esque. For some reason I’ve been enjoying that shop quite a bit lately. Not their price, but the style, on other people…you know…ones with tans and perfect hair! My skirt isn’t so different from the one with the teal polo, until you throw in the fact that mine is seersucker.
I know it isn’t a difficult or fancy skirt, but with a fabric like that, it doesn’t have to be. Now I just have to find something in my closet to wear with it. Even though I’m normally a creature of black t’s and jeans, I may be able to scrounge up a teal T-shirt or pink tank. 
Any suggestions from those of you with a passion for prints and brights? Would you wear it? and what with? I’d love some suggestions!
Please ignore the lumpy tummy, I folded up the T-shirt  and
hubby didn’t bother to point it out before taking the pictures.

Now I know I was lacking in posts last week, but I truly was busy. Be sure to stop back Wednesday for a new feature I’m calling Bookworm Wednesday, all about the craft books you’ve been drooling over.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. This is adorable! I would wear it in a heartbeat, but at the moment I'm wearing banana yellow lounge pants and a fuchsia pink top! 🙂
