La Robe de Macaron

Mmm French macarons! πŸ˜‹

What's not to love about these adorable little bites of deliciousness? Though they're tricky lil things! I've tried to make them two times now & they haven't turned out well either time. Maybe I oughta give it another go & the 3rd time will be the charm.

When Kat & I were traveling around looking for photo ops we thought a bakery would be perfect for this frock. (See previous post for back story.} We stopped in at Le Bakery on the Square in Washington & bought some yummy cake balls, a very sprinkled cookie, and a cuppa {much needed} coffee. They graciously allowed us to snap a few pics in their charming establishment. One of the friendly gals working there insisted on letting me hold their display macarons for a photo prop! So thoughtful. 😊

They had so many yummy things it was hard to choose. {I'll take one of those & those & those...} πŸ˜‰

I purchased the fabric for this dress at Walmart on clearance. You truly never know what gems they'll have in their fabric department. This fabric was Daisy Kingdom brand which made me really happy to know that they're still kickin' & putting out such adorableness just like they did in the 90s when Mom would make my younger sister & me coordinating dresses & pinafores.

These pics with the polkadotty cardi & lavender tights were taken on an earlier {chillier} day by my longsuffering sister Aimee.

I lined it completely with aqua colored fabric because the macaron or macaroon fabric is very light.

I wore my banana colored jellies from Sunjellies with this dress.
{By the way I'm NOT being paid to feature Sunjellies. I'm just fangirling. Though I certainly wouldn't say no to freebies...I just think I'll need a bigger following before that ever happens. Ha!}

La robe de macaron served as my Easter dress this year too! My grandma even thought they were easter eggs when she first saw it. {Then she thouht they were hamburgers.} And when my dad first saw it he said "Oh, coffee beans?!" *sigh* πŸ˜’ At least that gal in the bakery knew what they were right off the bat. Bless her.

Don't you just love all the pastels this time of the year? πŸ’•πŸ’—πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’• I think Spring might be my favorite...just don't tell the other seasons. πŸ˜‰ I always feel at my best in the Springtime. {Apart from allergies...but they make a pill for that now so...}πŸ˜†

I hope you're enjoying the April showers & flowers and that you all had a lovely Easter, m'dears! ☔πŸŒ·πŸ’•
