Hands up if you are tired of sweats and ready for a summer dress or two!? I always dress the way I feel and so while it feels safe and cozy at first, it’s starting to feel overused and dare I say, depressing. Obviously, I ran to my fabric stash and quickly spun up a really fun look inspired by the warmer, sunny weather Seattle was experiencing earlier this month. Bless you PNW.
It’s amazing how emotions change when you change things up a little – if you like moving furniture around in a room, then you know what I’m talking about). This is an easy look to recreate with the use of an oversized summer cover up, dress (I used McCalls 3705) or diy caftan, a pencil skirt and a nude top that gives the look a lot more curious interest. Wear it over jeans or opt for a swim suit if you want to play it safe at a pool party.

With this quarantine, I’ve been trying hard to use what I have first before I start spending… I’m not sure how much longer that idea will last because there’s so many beautiful finds out there!!! The fabric is a find from a sale last year at Joann Fabrics so I have no links but I just started filling up some carts over at Minerva Crafts and Mood Fabrics. I like the option on seeing how the fabric moves and I really appreciate the variety!
