I’m on a Boat

Although I was born and raised on the BWest Coast (the Best + West Coast!), I am a terrible swimmer, and much prefer to be sittin’ on the dock of the Bay. However, I shouldn’t let my fear of the ocean deter me from dressing for a maritime occasion.

I fell in love with this fabric when I first laid eyes on it; I waited for the perfect sewing project to turn it into something magnificent. Luckily my mom had the perfect dress pattern. Under her watchful eye, with her nagging guidance, and my patience tested, I transformed the fabric into a summery dress that’s ready to set sail. The seafaring look would not be complete without my nautical rope belt and my yellow peep toe Mary-Janes help accent the pops of yellow in the dress.

I’ll look fresh on the boat for the America’s Cup opening ceremony. Dare I say my cup runneth over with style?
