Once we got to church, I would twirl and twirl up and down the hallway, loving the way it felt when my skirt ballooned out around me and then pressed close back against me when I stopped twirling. When I was in fifth or sixth grade I even decided that I was going to wear a dress every single day. I don't know how long that lasted, but my family still laughs about it with me from time to time.
I'm not really sure when I stopped wearing dresses and skirts as much, but I know it's partially been due to the fact that the latest styles in dresses and skirts aren't often what I'm looking for. The rise of maxi skirts and dresses in the current world of fashion has made me so very happy, and reminded me of how much I really love skirts and braids and bows and all things feminine, the girly style of times past. I don't know if this is true for everybody, but for me it's often hard to pin down exactly the 'look' I'm going for with clothes and accessories. There are so many different styles that I like, but some aren't comfortable or practical to actually wear on a regular basis, and some just aren't really me. Over the last couple of months I've focused on really getting to know myself and letting my personality and who I am show through in my personal style. Today for my Oh, How Pinteresting link up, I'll be focusing on pins that really showcase dresses, skirts and hair styles that I truly love and would actually wear in my day to day life (now I just need to find some full skirted, high-waisted skirts...). I hope you have a happy Wednesday, and if you live in Alaska, I urge you to get out and enjoy the little bit of snow that fell in the night!
