Sunflowers + Parasols

pinup girl clothing umbrella dress

Is there anything prettier than a sunflower field in bloom? I'm so glad I was able to find one this year, and that it was at its peak right when I came back from California! I didn't mean to wait so long to post these, but my backlog of photos is going to come in handy over the next month. And since it's been very gray and rainy the past couple of days, seeing these again makes me feel much more cheerful!

This was the dress I was the most excited to receive from the Mary Blair collection. It reminds me of Little Bo Peep (in the best way)! I love the design and the color, but it unfortunately has a few fit issues. It runs smaller than my other PUG dresses (and has the dreaded side zip!), and it's definitely not as flattering on me as many of the other dresses I own. I love all of the other elements too much to let this one go, but I'll have to come up with new ways to style it. It comes with a detachable bolero that I opted not to wear, but I think it'll actually look better with my black cropped cardigan – or I could even wear a sweater on top and turn this dress into a skirt! Either way, I think I'll be able to wear it into the colder months, which is always good news.
