Bubble Gum

I love playing with fun color combinations! This one makes me feel like a whole pack of brightly colored bubble gum!

I just adore circle skirts! When I found this great teal twill, I knew it was going to be one!

I’m trying to make more solid basics to wear with printed separates, but I just had to let the colors be the star of this outfit. A me-made 40s blouse, rtw cardigan and vintage 50s hat completed the outfit.

One thing I really love about circle skirts is that you can really change the shape with crinolines! I chose to wear a small one with this outfit but it could easily be glammed up with a huge one. Do you like large or small crinolines with your 50s looks?

  • I don’t have a crinoline, but I am trying to do the same thing- add some solids to my wardrobe to go with all the fun prints! The problem is I keep making things with fun prints… lol.

  • I love the colour scheme. Your circle skirt looks great, and matches your vintage hat perfectly.
