Who else is excited to don seersucker this summer? This preppy, striped fabric will be a staple in my wardrobe this season. Here are five fun facts about seersucker from Town & Country that you probably didn't know:
1. The term "seersucker" comes from the Hindi word "sīrsakar" that had itself been borrowed from the Persian compound "shīroshakar" (meaning "milk and sugar").
2. Seersucker first became popular in Britain's warm weather colonies like British India.
3. One of the best things about the preppy puckered fabric? It doesn't need to be ironed (so it's great for traveling).
4. The traditional seersucker fabric is blue and white, but you can also find shorts, suits, pants, shirts, skirts, and dresses in a variety of colors.
5. When seersucker made its way to the United States, it gained popularity right away, especially with Southern gentleman who preferred a light fabric for their region's heat and humidity.
My husband and I took a day trip up to Oklahoma City to enjoy some great food and fun activities. We also took advantage of some of the city's quirky murals to accesorize my outfits.
We had some tasty sandwiches and mules at The Mule in the Plaza District. They are well known for their beer list and unique sandies. The establishment is extremely hip(ster?) and usually extremely busy. Patrick and I both ordered meatless sandwiches and he was able to order gluten free bread! We enjoyed our lunch, though we regretted my decision to eat lunch outdoors... The flies and the sun were very persistent. Definitely check out The Mule if you find yourself in OKC. Check out the murals, shops, and boutiques that form the fantastic Plaza District too!
My rose gold accessories are from Charming Charlie. These bauble earrings are spot-on trend! They also come in gold, silver, and gunmetal. My mixed metal arm party is no longer available since I purchased all of the pieces on sale. However, Charming Charlie always has dozens of rose tone watches and stackable bangles
Look out for part two of this series on Monday!
