Lilac Atomic

Trashy Diva Circle Skirt in Lilac Atomic Print Trixie Top in Black

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?
