I’m really, really, ridiculously excited for this summer’s Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The original film is one of my favorite movie-musicals, and I have a very fond memory of going to see it for a second time in the theater with my sister after we had bought the soundtrack and memorized EVERY lyric. We had the whole place to ourselves (ok… my mom and her best friend were there too), and we ran through the aisles singing and dancing along like the dramatic theater kids we were.
Ten years later, and Mamma Mia! is a movie I still watch regularly. It is beautifully filmed and choreographed, and makes me nostalgic for a life I never lived. It also makes me want to put on a flowy skirt and twirl around on the beach.
That being said- lets talk about this little outfit on Young Donna.
THAT SKIRT! Holy shit! I need that skirt. Its a perfect hippie pumpkin fantasy, and PERFECT to show how fun Donna was as a young woman. I crave that feeling of whimsy. That feeling of freedom. That summer feeling. I want to kick my shoes off, run through a meadow, and answer to nobody but myself.
I can’t wait to see more of the costumes in this film and incorporate late 1970’s style into my own wardrobe. For now, I’ll be scouring the Free People website for skirts fit for adventure.
