Outfit / Great Wave Blues

Peter Pilotto for Target shirtdress blue

Over a month ago now, on the day of my senior week boat cruise, I went to the Museum of Fine Arts with some friends to see the Hokusai exhibit. (If you're in Boston before August 9th, I highly recomend checking it out!)

(Endless apologies for the quality of these photos--I wasn't originally planning on taking photos and only had about ten minutes before I had to go meet my friends!)

I wanted an outfit that fit the theme of Hokusai's iconic work, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa." While I didn't have a literal Great Wave dress (unlike CM of Trends & Tolstoy!), my Peter Pilotto for Target shirtdress features the blues in Hokusai's print.

Later in the day for the boat cruise, I tossed on my OASAP tulle skirt and a belt to change up my look--the billowy skirt was perfect for wind on the deck and dancing!
