Confession: This week’s Five Take had me really, really wanting to title the post “Buy, Buy Birdie” (as in Bye, Bye Birdie). I thought it was hilarious. Sometimes I shock myself at my own nerdiness.

For those of you who read the other Five Takers’ blogs, you may already know that our dear member Claire has a certain love for bird print. If anyone knows how to wear it, it would be her! I have a couple bird print items, and items with the print always seem to catch my eye, but I very rarely actually wear it. I decided to take back out a bird print dress that I wore for a previous Five Take.

Even though the picture doesn’t show it well, I tied the belt a little lower thank last time and it made a triangular shape under the bust. It definitely help with the odd fit issues I had last time I wore it. I love the vivid blue color of the dress, so I decided to stick with cognac browns and pops of orange.

This look features something that you all very rarely see. My hair up! I’m really weird about my uneven hairline, which looking at this picture seems so silly. But now that summer is here, my hair is going to be up much more often.

I’m glad this Five Take challenge came up because it renewed my love for this dress. I especially liked pairing it with orange tones and browns. You’ll have to check out the other Five Take ladies to see how they do bird print!

Is bird print a love it or leave it trend for you?
