Dots & Poppies

I came up with the idea for this ensemble ages ago. Then had to wait WEEKS for the weather to cooperate (it's currently cooler than 50 degrees right now. and dark. and rainy. which is FINE. however, I was hoping to spend all day today and tomorrow laying in the sun at a friend's pool. so, there's that).
And then, I waited WEEKS to post it here.
I know, I know!
Worst blogger EVER. 

To be honest with you, I haven't felt inspired/motivated lately. To blog, to play in my closet, to write anything, to impress you with my witty self. Part of it is I've been a wee bit busy - training for another half, booking flights to the Sunshine State, patio drinking, drinking Snapshots at New Belgium Brewery, and taking video of my handsome Turb rolling in the grass.

But part of it is I feel like I'm out of sorts, and this poor little blog gets neglected as a side effect.
Bear with me, if you will - that'd be great!

Poppy Skirt

I got this skirt with my sister-in-law on our family vacation to Wisconsin in June. I had originally tried on another floral mirror print skirt that I really liked, but it was a bit more than I wanted to pay. And then, there, on the sale rack, was this cute little poppy print number. In my size! 

The poppies themselves are more orange-ish than red in real life, so I had a hard time deciding what to wear on top. However, black is in the stamens, and I have a decent amount of black tops, so that was easy. I would like to punch it up a bit in the future, so any suggestions are appreciated!
