WIWS: Seersucker edition.


Let's be honest right off the bat though...did not wear the seersucker.  I do not own any seersucker. 

No, this is the edition in which I learn the term seersucker...and lo and behold discover that I had been dressing my baby in seersucker outfits for several months, all without knowing the proper term for it.  Oh...I'm so embarrassed. 

It all started this morning when my mother saw Elsa dressed in this adorable dress


and said Oh, she looks so cute in her seersucker dress and I was all what the heck is seersucker?

So, my mom told me to google it, which led me to see everything from seersucker suits to a seersucker  wedding dress.   Now, I kinda like the seersucker suits on men.


..but the seersucker wedding and bridesmaid dresses....not so much. 


But I did see several other adorable seersucker dresses like this:


And seersucker seems like it would be so lovely and cool in the summer...instead of what I wore today...which was incredibly hot (I think I need more light-weight clothing).  On of my biggest pet peeves in clothing is when the cut of the shirt/outfit does not match the weight of the cloth.   The short-sleeved sweater is the classic example of this...I have never understood how anyone could wear a short-sleeved sweater...because it if's warm-enough for shorts sleeves, it's too hot to wear a sweater.   But, I am digressing.

So, here is what I wore:


Notice seersucker baby peeking out from behind my leg.  Oh..and I forgot to put on shoes for the picture....but I did wear shoes to Mass..promise.

So..the shirt is thrifted.  The skirt is super old...but probably from wal-mart.   You can't tell from the picture, but it actually has tiny white polka dots on it. 

And, I'm thinking seersucker would have been a more comfortable fabric.

 And, now I have managed to write an entire blog post about seersucker.  This here blog is going downhill fast, me thinks.  

Go forth and visit FLAP to see what everyone else wore Sunday.

  3. Thanks for the lesson in seersucker! I've heard of it, and I've seen it, but I never knew what it was. But it's still a funny name.
