Okay, who completely freaked out over Trashy Diva's new Lilac Atomic print?! My love for mid century modern prints and anything in a purple hue have joined forces and created a monster. A beautiful, squeal inducing monster. I normally treat myself to one piece in every new Trashy Diva collection (if I'm a fan of the print/fabric), but I couldn't help myself this time around. I ended up with this circle skirt and the new Debbie dress. Since it's been ridiculously hot and I wanted to showcase a more casual outfit, I decided to blog the circle skirt first. Read all about this beauty below!

As much as I love the 40's inspired prints and styles, I'm a 50's girl at heart. I love a twirl-worthy skirt! The Lilac Atomic collection embodies all my favorite aspects of 50's fashion but in a modern stretch cotton. The fabric is light, breathable, and provides a bit of stretch when you wear it. The circle skirt is true to its name with no gathers or pleats. It has a nice wide waistband and large pockets on the side. I'm usually a 2/4 in Trashy Diva clothing but I always take a 4 in the skirts. This skirt was no different and it fits like a dream! I've also paired it with one of Trashy Diva's classic tops, the Trixie in black. I love the adjustable straps and the amazing support it creates in the bust (you can go braless!), but I wish it were just a smidge longer. It's too long to be a crop, but too short to tuck into my skirt. These are the everyday problems a long waisted lady must deal with!
Today my mother in law is taking Bianca for some grandmother/granddaughter bonding time and I literally do not know what to do with myself. It's been entirely too long since I've had time alone and I don't remember how to act accordingly! I'm thinking I'll get some coffee, maybe take a walk around the lake, get my nails done? Any suggestions?
