June 14, 2017

Depending on where you live, June can either be sweatshirt weather or sweating weather. I live in Georgia, where it’s definitely already the latter, so I’ve been working on ways to get outside without passing out. (I grew up in Seattle, so I can be slightly dramatic about heat…) (But also, it’s so hot here.)

Whether you’re still a little bundled up or you’re stripping off layers, June still signals the beginnings of summer - swimming and lemonade and fireworks and picnics. Are you ready for it?

I’ve been trying to take advantage of the not yet completely sweltering whether by hiking to as many waterfalls as I can find. Georgia may not have the sweeping vistas of Yosemite or the Olympics or Mount Hood, but we have some fine looking waterfalls. And what’s more summery than a hike that ends in cool breezes and rushing water? The only trouble is having to hike back up…

I’ve hiked to three different waterfalls in the last two weeks! So that’s how I “Color Me Summer." I’m all about water - blues and greens. What are your summer colors? Comment on Facebook by June 21st (the first official day of summer!) with a summer adventure you’re hoping to go on - as big as a cross country road trip or as small as a picnic in the park - and you’ll be entered in a drawing for our brand new super bright and colorful notecards. Write a note to a friend or post them around your house and get in the summer spirit!

PS: Can you see my shirt in the photo? That’s some old school (dare I say vintage?) RPF - A Daring Adventure or Nothing at All. It’s one of my favorites. And the shirt tied around my waist is one of our longsleeves from a few winters ago. These shirts last forever.

E SWEET Classic Skirt Sizing 

 

This video will show you both the "Sport" size and the "Super" size!

Each Sweet Spot Skirt is adjustable and fits a range of sizes.  The unique snapping system gives you the freedom to adjust the size of your skirt.  Don't forget it is also 'reversible.'  One of the most important things to remember is the skirt is meant to be worn on the hips, not the waist! (Scroll to bottom of this page for visual!)  
The best fit is to fasten at least 3 rows of snaps.  We have put thousands of skirts on women, and it never fails to amaze people how flattering the wide waistband is on all types of body styles!  Feel free to call and discuss your fit questions with our "Specialist" at the shop!   
Flagship Store 360-904-9929.
Sport Size:  Fits sizes 2-14
This is our most popular size.  It is 12 inches in length (measured from the hips).  It’s long enough to cover, but short enough to stay out of the way during activities.   Don’t be afraid of it being too short.  We tell everyone to 'trust' the 12 inches and start with this skirt.   Measurements:  fits hip sizes 31"-40".
Super Sweet:  Fits sizes 10-18
This skirt is 14 inches in length and provides a bit more coverage than our “Sport” size. We have found that women who have very long legs or desire more coverage prefer this skirt.   **If you are a size 10 or 12, this skirt will fit you.  However, many of our customers who can fit in either size ("Sport" or "Super Sweet") and are quite active, find the extra length cumbersome and prefer the shorter “Sport” size. Measurements:  fits hip sizes 36"-43".
E Sweet:  Fits sizes 18-24
This skirt is 16 inches in length.  The skirt fits each body slightly differently, but provides ample coverage in a stylish and flattering way.  Each E sweet is custom made to order.  Measurements:  fits hip sizes 41"-54". 
Sweet Z:  Fits sizes 0-6
This skirt fits a true size 0 and more petite body frames.   It is 12 inches in length.  This is a great alternative if the "Sport" size is too loose and you have all the snaps fastened.  Measurements:  fits hip sizes 27"-33".
