Sartorial Saturday…On a Tuesday–Red, White, and Blue

Since tomorrow is Independence Day in the U.S., I thought I’d share a few ideas for dressing for the Fourth of July. You’ll notice Pinup Girl Clothing’s Mary Blair plane print makes an appearance three different ways…as a Harley dress, a Natalie swing dress, and a Doris skirt. The red, white, and blue of the print is perfect for Independence Day fashion! So are PUG’s red Harley top, blue sky harlequin skirt, and red, white, and blue Amanda dress!

Here are some of my favorite ways to accessorize with red, white, and blue, as well:

What’s your favorite way to wear red, white, and blue?

Sartorial Saturday–Send in the Clowns

Of all the dresses Pinup Girl Clothing sent me from the Mary Blair collection, I was most excited to receive the clown print Natalie swing dress. To be honest, I don’t like clowns at all, but there’s something so fun and whimsical about this print, and I had really regretted not purchasing it the last time it was available, so this was greatly appreciated!

I knew exactly how I wanted to accessorize the dress the moment I saw it…I went with my yellow and dark blue Splendette Duchess bangles, a yellow necklace, and the Twiney Rainbow Bubbles earrings I ordered from PUG the day they were released.

The outfit looks exactly like I hoped it would!

This is such a fun dress, and with it in my wardrobe, there is now only one PUG Mary Blair print I don’t own in one form or another!

Sartorial Saturday–Feeling Dapper

Have you ever heard of “Dapper Day?” It’s an opportunity to get dressed up in your finest and gather at one of the Disney Parks with other people who also love an excuse to get dressed up. I’ve never had the chance to attend a Dapper Day event, but when Pinup Girl Clothing previewed their latest Dapper Day collaboration, which includes this beautiful “Flags Ahoy” print Bella skirt, I knew I would have to add it my wardrobe, and wear it with my blue PUG peasant top. The colors in the skirt are AMAZING, and the print, designed by Justin J., is in some ways reminiscent of a Mary Blair design.

It’s so easy to accessorize this beautiful print. This time, I went with mostly yellow, and added in my new Twiney Rainbow Bubbles earrings from PUG…aren’t they fun?!?

There’s nothing I don’t love about this outfit!

I think it would be loads of fun to go to a Dapper Day event someday, but until then, I’ll be there in spirit and fashion!

Sartorial Saturday–I Love Mary Blair!

Unless you’re new to my website, you probably already know that I love Mary Blair. Obviously Pinup Girl Clothing loves her, too! Through May 5th, they want you to share your love of Mary Blair on Instagram…simply post a photo of yourself in your favorite Mary Blair print, and don’t forget to tag Pinup Girl Clothing, and use the “I Love Mary Blair” hashtag!

I’m really looking forward to seeing how people are styling their Mary Blair, especially the newest pieces that were just added to PUG’s “Magic of Mary Blair” collection. For now, I’m sharing my “newest” Mary Blair piece, styled in a completely different way!

Do you have a favorite Mary Blair print?

Sartorial Saturday–HufflePUG

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about our planned trip to Universal Orlando this summer, where we hope to see all of the Harry Potter sites. This of course let me to think about my wardrobe, and my Pinup Girl Clothing Yellow House Harlequin skirt…I’m a proud HufflePUG!

I’ve even got the perfect HufflePUG accessories!

To which house do you belong?

Sartorial Saturday–Glitter Bangles

When Splendette started making larger-size Duchess bangles last year, I was ecstatic, because that was the one thing that was really missing from my retro looks. The first collection they released was fairly small, though, and only included a few colors/styles. Last fall, however, they added some new Duchess styles, including the one kind of bangle I was still eager to add to my collection…the glitter bangle!

Sometimes, I’ll wear a stack of just glitter bangles, but usually, I mix and match glitter with the other styles I have. And even though I’ve never actually worn this with an outfit, I did try on all the glitter bangles I have, in rainbow order, just to see how gorgeous they all are together!

Of course, I won’t complain if Splendette adds a few more glittery colors to their Duchess collection in the future…now if only they would add in a few colors of Moonglow in Duchess sizes, my collection would really be complete (until the next thing comes along)!

Sartorial Saturday…On a Sunday–Easter Dressing

Since today is Easter, I’m sharing my Sartorial Saturday post a day late, so I can focus on Easter fashion!

I’m not going to lie…I really struggled to decide what I wanted to wear this year. But a Pinup Girl Clothing sale that allowed me to buy a Sabrina top in the perfect shade of mint to go with my castles Jenny skirt was the solution to my sartorial ennui.

Once I figured out the outfit, the accessories were pretty easy, although I did struggle a bit with my Splendette stack. In the end, I think pastel glitter was the perfect choice for Easter!

Did I mention that spring hasn’t really arrived here yet? The three-quarter sleeves definitely helped ward off the chill!

Happy Easter!
