Coral and Blue

I went with my sweet Mother to JoAnns to pick out a coral skirt material for my new Everette Collection piece. I was inspired by my sister who hinted that coral may be a good color to accent my sky blue polka dot newsies cap and white lace shirt. As I searched through the fabrics, I got kind of excited when I saw what coral really is.

So what I have in mind is a tomboy who would refuse on any other day to wear a skirt. But it’s Mom’s birthday, so she pulls on the easiest one she can find…the one Mom made for her at her last birthday…a coral bubble skirt. Then she walks to the mirror and something is missing. Lace long sleeved shirt, white tank, coral skirt…hmmm. As she walks out the door to the bus stop you see her set her blue and white polka dot cap on her head smiling as she runs to meet up with friends in her sky blue sneakers with no socks. Sigh…Mom tried!:)
