poppy red

This skirt was one of those "oh my goodness, I need this right now" purchases. Once the weather warms up I'm drawn to bright, cheerful colors. Poppy red tends to top my list of favorites. For whatever reason, I didn't end up wearing this skirt a lot this summer. It was one of those pieces I wanted to save for this occasion or that but ended up going with something else. Of course there was a chance that it would sit in my suitcase all vacation and not get worn as I would undoubtedly attempt to "save" it again but I did end of wearing, twice! Once for a mid morning walk on the beach with JD and once out to dinner.  

I love a full skirt. In my mind they are a classic and elegant style, something Grace Kelly wore. My instinct is to twirl around like an idiot, which did not look very graceful on film so I will not be sharing those pictures. For our morning walk on the beach I paired this bright red skirt with a simple white tank.
