Skirt: NOS Vintage Blouse: Thrift Shoes: Jeffrey Cambell

I found this blouse after my boyfriend did the laundry, and forgot that I had even owned it, let alone loved it - it had been a long time since we did the wash!  Now, I'm completely enamored with it, and want to wear it with everything.  The collar adds so much to any outfit, that its hard to put it down.  

These photos were taken towards the end of my day off while my boyfriend took a break from work.  Thus, we have the boilerplate parking lot photos.  I prefer to bring a little more originality to the location of my photos, but hey, it was my day off.  One more day till I go back to work, and this means hiking hiking hiking!  See you all again tomorrow.

You look fantastic as usual, my comments must seem very repetitive ^^
That skirt is gorgeous, really, plaid, pleats and wool? Perfect combination (if that's wool - i'm sort of a nitwit when it comes to fabrics ^^)

Love the fact that your shoes seem so worn in!

The collar and cuffs on your blouse are so great. I love discovering forgotten articles of clothing like this. It's almost like getting something new that you love, but even better!
