I'm Obsessed: White Eyelet Sundresses
Readers, have you read the book Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen? It's one of those magical, whimsical, romantic books that I devour--and Jeff rolls his eyes at. (Seriously, read it.) The magical, whimsical, romantic main character often wears a white eyelet sundress while doing magical, whimsical, romantic things. The idea of the white eyelet sundress has been implanted in my brain ever since, and I'm convinced that wearing one will make one's life 100% more whimsical.
And since it's sundress sewing season (yay!), it's time to start planning. I love a strappy style with a full skirt, like this Lilly Pulitzer from a past season (though I'd prefer more substantial straps).
bombshell dress" bodice with two straps and a full skirt. Right?
Or maybe add a "peek-a-boo" detail like this Milly dress (from eBay)!
To increase my whimsicality and romance factor, I envision riding my new pink bike (just ordered!) while wearing my white eyelet sundress. I should probably get a front basket to fill with flowers and baguettes and puppies too. (Too much?)
