i always thought barbara ann’s name was actually bobbaran, and i thought it was the strangest name imaginable. barbara ann and her would be beach boy beau met at the dance (“went to a dance…lookin’ for romance, saw barbara ann so i thought i’d take a chance”). the beach boys classic has always put a smile on my face, particularly when it gets a little chilly outside (feels like a summer song). however, barbara ann most certainly lived all year round and probably had lots of dances to go to. so i styled her up some right nice looks for the major dances of the year.
