Swirling Summer Skirts















This is the third time I have worn this skirt here on the blog. I paired it with black and red accessories last summer (here), and with a white blouse back in 2016 (here). Going back to find those posts was really odd because scrolling through my outfit posts from just last year, and especially as far back as 2016, I feel like my style has really evolved since then! Sometimes it's good to look back and even cringe a little so you can appreciate how far you've come even over a short time. Perhaps in another few years I will look upon my current ensemble and photography choices in the same way, but only time will tell...

This time I paired this wonderful printed cotton skirt with a black lace top (from Old Navy of all places!) and tan leather accessories. I was so happy to pick up these bait sandals in the tan colorway in the last Black Friday sale! I dream of them releasing this same shoe in navy blue one day...PLEASE BAIT!!! I need good navy heels so badly, they are so hard to find! The brushed gold hoop earrings are also from Old Navy, and the wicker handbag is vintage from Etsy a few years back. This was the first wicker bag I ever bought, but I have expanded my collection since of course. 

I hope you all are having a good week. I'm pretending my mind isn't consumed by writing the sequel to the book I wrote earlier this year. You see, I told myself I'm not allowed to work on the sequel yet, that I have to get the darn first one sold first, that I need to work on videos, and pattern drafting, and perfecting my query letter some more. I know how the story consumed my brain completely the last time, and now I am afraid to let that happen again! So no, no sequel writing for me...except I'm already 30,000 words in so...oops. Sometimes the words win.

  1. That skirt is just amazing. I love me a dark floral. As I am also searching for a nice navy heel, might I suggest DSW's Journee Collection or Unique Vintage's selection while we wait for BAIT or Royal Vintage.
