Flower Power

Skirt: Thrift T: Hanes Shoes: Seychelles

My heart skipped a beat when I discovered this skirt while thrifting last week - the heavenly print, unique sillhouette, bold colors... and the waste was actually small enough to fit me-it had to be destiny. I've been dying to wear it but knew that I had to take pictures in a setting that really gave it justice. Today was the day! I woke up earlier than expected and convinced my amazing boyfriend to accompany me to the beach to take a couple photos.  And I'm glad I made the extra effort. After all, this skirt deserved it.

Be sure to check out my giveaway!

dang girl! do i love this! red.white and blue are my favorite summer color combo, and you are looking like summer! GREAT photos, too! Thank your awesome boyfriend for me for taking some wonderful shots of wunderbar you! Striking print, long silhouette of the skirt contrasts so nicely with the short crop of the top. More top-shelf style from Another Day to Dress Up!
