Cartoonish Color and Tassels

When I went through and edited these pictures, I couldn't help but think, given the background, that I look like a character in a cartoon! With all of the colors and bright shapes it seems quite fitting! The picture at the end, which represents my feeble attempt at doing an action shot, also helps to establish the cartoonish feel of today's post.

Today I am wearing a tassel dress from Make Me Chic. I have actually become quite fond of two things in terms of wardrobe this summer: dresses and tassels. So since this dresses combines both these things together, it's the perfect summer dress! One of the reasons I have gravitated so much towards dresses this summer is that I've actually found that, as a woman, they are the most comfortable thing you can wear to keep cool during these hot months. Nowhere was this more apparent than during my recent trip to the South. Regarding the tassels, I am not really sure why I like them but they are colorful and create movement, so what's not to love?

As you will see from the picture above, there are some fun tassels located on the back of this dress too! I have also included a selection of other tassel-related garb for those of you who may also find yourselves addicted to tassels this summer.

  9. I love the entire story you're telling with these pictures, Katie. It's so pop art/Warhol inspired, I feel. And shouldn't that be what clothes are meant for? Telling stories :) I wanted to thank you for being a part of the Project Sister Act Link-Up last Friday, and invite you to join the current one too xoxo
