Well I finally broke down and did it, I ordered myself a nice big fluffy petticoat to wear under my full skirts and dresses. I first tried ordering some cheaper ones off of Amazon, and was disappointed with just how unfortunate they were when they arrived. So then I moved onto the real deal (and pricey!) Malco Modes petticoats (I got the Samantha style in ivory) and goodness the difference was miles apart! I'll do a full review for you later this week!
I blogged about this dress and the wax print fabric it is made from last year, but I really couldn't wait to wear it again this summer. The weight of the cotton is just perfect, and the full circle skirt is just so fun to twirl around in! This time I accessorized it with navy blue and a new (well, vintage) hat that I got for a complete bargain on Ebay recently. I couldn't believe I got this hat for under $15 dollars, it is so perfect for summer! You guys know how I love hats, and straw hats are my favorite. I'm so dangerous on the internet, I need to block etsy and ebay from my browser ;)
It is just so nice to have everything in bloom again, I get so tired of the snow and tan dead grass that permeates spring in Colorado. The trade off is the heat of course, but everything has a price! They finally have the fountain turned on at my local garden/event center that I haunt too, so that is extra nice. The rose garden was in full bloom and I had a great time admiring and smelling all the varieties. What could be better than an afternoon stopping to smell the roses?
