Sunshines, Daisies, Butter Mellow

This outfit (minus the necklace) was actually from last Saturday when I went to a BBQ for my friend Debbi’s going-away party (yeah, she’s moving home too. I’m sad that our little gang is breaking up, but hopefully it won’t be forever.) I have to be honest – I wore the tights and boots only to recreate the outfit for pictures; today was too hot for that.

After the BBQ we went back to a friend’s house for a round of Trivial Pursuit, and while we were playing around with his collection of toy weapons, Debbi said I looked like an anime character with my schoolgirl outfit and a sword, so of course we had to take some pictures:

Banzaaaaaaaaaai…! (I don’t know, what do anime characters usually yell?)

This skirt is the result of another dye job – it used to look like this. I’ve already got a tan/beige skirt, and I’ve been looking a yellow skirt, so it was an easy decision to dye it. At first I only used the Golden Yellow dye on it, but it turned into a weird, almost chartreuse color, so I dyed it a second time with Sunshine Orange, and I’m happy with how it came out in the end.

Skirt: thrifted & dyed by me, Shirt: Forever21
Tights: Target, Boots: thrifted, Necklace: gift shop in Wieliczka, Poland

  1. I snorted from laughing so hard at the Banzai photos. You’re adorable.
    And the dye was 10000% the right choice- can you imagine how fun it will be paired with happy colors for summer and wonderful browns and greys in fall? Win.

    “Turn this stupid fat rat yellow!” Do my eyes deceive me or is the title a Harry Potter reference? 🙂

    Love the sword pictures, and the wonderful shade that skirt is!
