Striped Twirl (Dress as Skirt)

Here’s a total score from a clothing swap I attended a little while back. This Thakoon for Target dress looked like a sack on me, but I knew the pattern had tons of potential. Throw a t-shirt and belt on there, and poof! A fun and twirly skirt. Thanks, Christina!

What day is it? Sunday? I am all sorts of mixed up. Only one short week til the Texas Style Council Conference! I can’t wait to nerd out like a good fashion blogger and meet a bunch of you ladies! Who wants to come see my garage and woodpile in person? Just kidding. Who wants to go on a Trophy Boutique tour of Austin? Hit me up.

Dress: Thakoon for Target (swapped), Tee: American Apparel, Cardigan: Old Navy, Belt: J.Crew, Shoes: Nicole, Jewelry: Kendra Scott

    That dress/skirt is super pretty – I love the bold colors and stripes, a little nautical and very spring!
