I think I may have been one of the only ladies who wasn't eager to get my hands on this venus fly trap skirt... Initially. As big of a fan of Micheline Pitt's prints as I am (I'm pretty sure I own them all), there was something about it that made me feel hesitant to get one. When I received my monster print Darling Dames skirt a few weeks ago (seen here), I realized how much I love the new shorter length and the pockets. So naturally, I wanted to get a few prints to add to my wardrobe. This print is much more beautiful in person and I'm happy pushed away my hesitation and went for it!

My only issue with this skirt? The waistband is nowhere near as "stiff" as the waistband in the Jenny skirt. If you're curious what that means, feel free to take a closer look at the first picture. As much as I didn't want to include a picture of the twisted band, I feel like I need to be up front about it. My other Darling Dames skirts do that as well, unfortunately. I've tried starching and ironing them down, but they all eventually fold over themselves. If you have any suggestions on how to make them a bit more rigid, please let me know!
I'm working over at the boutique today, but these past two days were filled with lots of family fun. As you may know, this is a rare occurrence! On Friday, Kevin, Bianca, and I went to Knott's Berry Farm for the day. Bianca was so excited for all the kiddie rides (especially the roller coaster!) and I was just happy to see her enjoying herself. Yesterday we attended a birthday party at one of the most fun-filled indoor playgrounds I've ever been to. Since Bianca is too young to ride the big slides by herself, Kevin and I had the pleasure of joining her. It was like we were kids again! I'm sure she was happy to have both her parents with her for two whole days. I know I appreciated it and hope it happens more often!
