Floating Blossoms

navy and cobalt blue outfit with white stockings

I have always been a pink person, in terms of character as well as complexion, but I don't wear the color often. There is much more blue in my closet. [Insert joke about gender norms.] However, when I was in kindergarten, I had a dress that made me look like a tiny Glinda. You know, this lady:



Not vampy runway butterfly Glinda, although I don't object to that interpretation.

It's mysterious, but my skin always looks better in photos. Still, it's evident that the damp weather is aggravating my acne. Suggest some luxurious-but-cheap treatments? Extra points for DIY.

My pastel headband brings to mind another longtime style idol:

Also: Jennie Somogyi on The Morning Call. I'm no Sugar Plum Fairy, but it was fun to wear a flippy little skirt.

  1. Firstly, I just have to tell you that I read the title of this as "Floating Bosoms" and for a split second was expecting something totally unprecedented haha.

    I think the pink of your bow and eyeshadow looks ridiculously cute with the blue of the outfit. Please invest in a grown-up version of the aforementioned Glinda dress, though. Like really.

  3. I really really really love your outfit! The blue of the skirt looks magical, and looks even more mesmerizing with the white tights!

    I dressed up as Glinda the Good Witch for Halloween when I was in High School, and the joke was that I wasn't wearing all black for a day.

  4. There is so much win in this outfit I can't even :-D

    Flippy skirts are fab. I am also mildly obsessed with ballet princess style ;-) And I can personally vouch for the fact that even if you do a beautiful, perfect arabesque, and you do it en pointe and everything, it's not quite 100% awesome until you have a tulle skirt and something sparkly on.

  5. I was a tiny Glinda for Halloween one year. I think I was in 2nd grade? Good times. I really enjoyed wearing the giant crown.
    Also your white tights and blue skirt look so cute together. I really love the pink bow in your hair too.
