What I wore:
Tee: ModCloth (find it here)
Skirt: Thrifted ($2)
Kelsi Dagger heels & midi ring c/o Lulu's
Daisy ring: shop in Beverly ($11)
Coral ring: Vintage ($6)
Necklace: Vintage/ Avalon ($12)
Sunglasses: Vintage ($5)
Cuff bracelet: Thrifted ($2)
Beaded bracelet c/o Musana Jewelry
Bag: Vintage Coach/ Avalon ($20)

I wore this to: show off my new favorite skirt

This skirt was something I wasn't completely sold on when I brought it home from Salvation Army, but I liked the colors and I liked the pattern, so I took a chance. Well, after actually styling it, rather than just trying it on with my baggy tee shirt and sneakers at the store, I feel in love. Sometimes it's worth taking a chance on something you're not sure of, especially if that something costs a whopping two bucks.

ps- Musana Jewelry, who kindly sent me that sunny yellow bracelet up there, is a pretty awesome organization. You can read more about them here.

I'm loving the vertical stripes!

Wow, this look is amazing! And it just goes to show you have to have a little vision and patience (or sometimes A LOT) when it comes to thrifting. Which I think is all part of the fun of it!

Ahhh, you just always look so cool, Julie! Haha, I'm usually content going for the "cute" look, but I do wish I could pull off "cool" as effortlessly as you sometimes! :)

Jul- THANK YOU! Quite possibly one of the nicest compliments I've received. I am quite fond of the sunglasses and skirt myself, I've been wearing them nonstop!

Love this outfit! It is not my typical style, but this outfit just works perfectly! I'll be on the look out for a skirt and shoes like those. They work so well.
