Guys. How awesome is this skirt? I wanted to make all the skirts for this summer, but have only managed to get this one done so far. This one is a half-circle (with little tiny ladybugs all over it!), but based on the same techniques I used for my pink skulls and hibiscus skirt. I would have preferred a shirt with a rounder collar, but I work with what I’ve got. I’ll probably try this combo again in the future, maybe with the cardigan closed instead. I think that would look super cute.
No ladybug earrings, so I settled for white hoops and skulls instead. I really thought I had ladybug earrings somewhere. I should rectify that.
Temperatures hit near 100 F on Thursday, and while I wanted to wear my cute black flats, I knew the top strap would get tight during the day. These canvas Danskos fit perfectly, but the breathable material also leaves room for swelling feet.
