Here Comes the Sun

 The sun! Its back! After days and days of rain and grey cloudy skies, the sun is flirting with a full return. I really can't wait for spring to finally arrive, just in time for summer to begin. Everything is behind, no one has bothered to plant any flowers yet and normally lush planters are still empty. I hope with the let up in the rain the gardens will bloom again soon.

I made this easy summer dress last year and really enjoy wearing it. It can be styled with so many different accessories. This time I paired it with black and gold thermoset jewelry, a black suede belt, black heels, and a floral hat. This hat too is wonderfully versatile, having so many colors! I hope to make a navy dress later this summer, and I think this hat would match a blue dress just as well.

Speaking of sewing, I bought fabric for my first pair of jodhpurs today, now I just have to finish up the pattern!

    1. Thank you Jessica! With all the rain we have been having, I suspect we will be green for a while now :)

  2. Your hat is so pretty, what a great find! It must go with so many outfits.

    1. Thanks Kate! It does but somehow I am always forgetting to wear this one!

  3. What a darling hat! I love the colors of the flowers, it makes it such a versatile piece. Your dress looks perfect with the hat, and the polka dots are so awesome. Plus, I love your sunglasses. ❤

    1. Thank you Bonita! The sunglasses were like $4 at Forever 21, they sometime have the best sunglasses surprisingly!
