The weather lately has been less than the idyllic summer that I imagined. There have been approximately 3 shorts-worthy days so far this year. Here’s to hoping for a late summer! Today, I’m wearing the blogger print of the moment: pineapples. Since when did pineapples become derigeur? I’m not sure either, but regardless I love this dress.
Did you know that pineapples were a symbol of wealth back in 18th century times. That’s why if you go to historical buildings like Durham College old carvings and pillars will feature pineapples as part of their motif. Being able to afford to have a pineapple imported to show off to your guests was the ultimate, and you could even rent a pineapple for the evening to show off to your friends.
I digress, but basically, the pineapple is pretty cool. Also, I grew up with the idea that a ham MUST be cooked with pineapple slices toothpicked to it for maximum deliciousness factor. Until writing this post I had no idea that I had so many thoughts and feelings about pineapples to be honest.
This dress is from Miss Patina but here are some other pineapple dresses that I love:
Do you have any thoughts about pineapples? Or do you honestly, just not care?
