Not the painted veil, that's a film, just a painted veil- in this case a painted pink parasol! I'm feeling a bit stretched thin so you get sillier titles! I need a nap ;)
How can it possibly be the last week of July? Goodness. I am happy to be halfway though the season of high heat though, as melting just isn't very chic. This wrap dress is one of my favorite dresses, dispite the fact that it is so brightly colored! The offset print explains why it was languishing for super discount at my favorite fabric shop a few years ago, but I love it all the same. The pattern is something I cobbled together from various patterns of my own to form a late 30's wrap style dress. I recently bought some rayon linen blend in ruby red to make another of these dresses as it has always been so easy to wear! Here I've paired it with simply white shoes and my pink parasol for another hot summer's day.
Funny enough I acquired this parasol at the Colorado Renaissance Festival near ten years ago! I'd love one in more natural colors now, but my sixteen year old self went with pink and blue. I'm on the hunt for a new one as parasols really are a help when the sun is being extra intrusive!
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you're feeling more rested than I am! So much to do, so little time...
