Hello lovelies! A last week our family had the privilege of visiting the magnificent Cincinnati Museum Center at the Union Terminal, for a business meeting. But, how could we ever stop by this magically history landmark without taking outfit photos? T’would be pure sacrilege! Happily, I had dressed up all 40’s style for the occasion, so I seemed to be quite at home as far as fashion goes with this fantastic site. There is the most luscious architecture out in front, with the greenest fountain you’ve ever seen. That is where I wanted my pictures taken. It’s just so… ugh. I’m just sort of speechless every time I visit this place… 😀

Have any of you ladies had an impulse sewing project? I have had a few, and this skirt I am sporting here was one of them! Brigid had given me the skirt material from an ugly thrifted floral dress. I had always thought that the fabric would make for a darling 1940s dirndl skirt, so when I found out that we girls needed to be dressed in 40s attire for our business meeting at the Union Terminal, I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. The cute, effortless peasant blouse + dirndl skirt ensembles of the teen 1940s fashions had always allured me with their easy-breezy summer flair, so straight away I went to work creating my new favorite floral skirt! It was very easy, and only took me an afternoon to stitch up. I used (or rather, Brigid showed me how to follow 😉 ) the couture waistband tutorial Brigid talked about in her post about her seersucker suit, and I am a 100% convert. Oh my, once you try it, there is absolutely NO going back!
Jessica let me borrow her adorable white peasant blouse and green shrug, and my picnic-basket style purse & yellow peep-toes finished off the ensemble perfectly.
I just wanted to add a quick note that we girls are hosting a giveaway for our newest album, “The Boyer Sisters”, in honor of the 71st Anniversary of D-Day (June 6th, 1944), on our Facebook page. One person will win a copy of the album once it’s released. Sound like fun? Well, it ends soon, so enter while you can!
