Strawberries, Sunflowers, & Straw Boater Hats









You know, until recently I didn't have many circle skirts, and my collection is still on the smaller side for a mid-century lover. This skirt I have on here however is my first vintage circle skirt! It was described as 80's does 50's, and judging by the more modern-ish zipper that is most likely the case, but I think it plays the part of a true mid-century skirt quite well! How was I supposed to resist the lovely colors and profusion of berries in the print?! I couldn't ;)

I paired the new-to-me skirt with a crisp white blouse with red stitching that I made last year as a bit of a Peggy Carter inspired make (she has a few with similar stitching on the show). Since I was wearing red I pulled out my Luxulite cherries brooch again, I love Luxulite! I really can't wait to snatch up some of their fall offerings this year <3 

It has actually already begun to cool down here in Colorado this week, I wore tights and a scarf yesterday! A little rain, a cool breeze...ahhhh I can smell the pumpkin spice already :)

Skirt, Hangbag, Belt, Hat, & Earrings: Vintage

  1. Love - oh, so very love, every single element of this fabulous ensemble. I agree that this skirt is a dead ringer for a true fifties garment. It never ceases to knock my socks off just how spot on some eighties does fifties pieces were.

    Big hugs & happy weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  3. The skirt has a lovely print. I like how you have pulled out the red and mustard in your accessories. I'm looking forward to seeing Luxulites Halloween offerings!
