How to Wear DIY: Summery colorblock
This weekend we met some friends for the Portland Farmers' Market in the Park Blocks in downtown.
I wore the colorblock linen dress I made last spring, using that sort of complicated Simplicity pattern and a bias partial circle skirt. It was just perfect for the sunny weather! Dresses are SO great in the summer. I think I might have forgotten that for a while. ;)
I also wore my new Forever 21 straw fedora that I like so much, but I took the pink band off and put this black grosgrain one on. More versatile, I think.
I've actually taken the dress in a little since I made it, and it fits like a glove now. A little more snug than I've been used to all winter and spring, but it sure does hold that strapless bra in place. ;)
I wasn't too sure about the funky geometric necklace with it, but I wanted something different and fun. The necklace also totally says winter to me, but hopefully I gave it new life.
Hope you had a sunny and lovely weekend!
