Sunny days and 80's skirts




What I'm Wearing:
Shirt:  Mine (Marshall's)  |  Skirt: Vintage Petite Illustrations (thrifted)  |  Shoes:  Tahari (DSW, shop here)  |  Earrings:  TLC Creations  |  Sunglasses:  Gucci knock-offs (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)  |  Necklace: Gift

This was another skirt I found at the thrift store that I carried around with me for awhile before ultimately deciding to buy.  I couldn't decide whether or not it was a bit TOO dated!  In the end though, I thought I'd give it a try.  This is the first time I've worn it, and I have to say...I kind of like the look!  After all, pleats are in, right?

(By the way, I really need to take pictures BEFORE the sun hits my patio...it makes it a bit challenging to get good shots of my outfit.  Sorry, readers!)

Just so ya'll know, I was totally rocking the side braid WAY before Katniss Everdeen came along. ;)  It has truly become my "go-to" hairstyle on days I just don't have the energy to blow-dry my hair.  Which reminds me, my cousin's wedding is coming up on August 11th and I am in desperate need of a haircut.  I decided to try trimming my bangs on my own last week and...well...they need help.  It's just such a PAIN stopping at the hair salon for a bang trim!  Sometimes trimming them on my own works out, but other times...not so much.   So it's off to the salon I go.

Yesterday a grand total of ZERO research work was accomplished.  It's time to buckle down and WORK! Does anyone have any motivation I could borrow?

Linking Up:


  1. What an adorable blog. My clothes constantly have cat hair on them (not to mention the rest of my house) so I loved this immediately. And Abby is adorable :) Stopping by from the blog hop, I'll definitely be back to see more!

    1. Thank you so much, Sarah! I hope to see you back! May I just add that I am a big fan of your blog. Thanks so much for commenting!

  2. That skirt will transition great into the fall! I am always in such awe of people finding these great finds thrifting. I actually just bought my first piece thrifted :)

    1. I think it will, too! Sometimes I have better luck than others. Congrats on your first thrifted piece! I think you will find that it is very addicting!
