Vintage Skirts + Windy Days

Thrifted Blue Midi Skirt (similar| NY CoRed Orange Top (similar| Foreign Exchange Gold Rope Tan Belt (similar) | Shoe Dazzle Braided Heels (old) | Charlotte Russe Gold Bangles (similar) | Handmade Button Ring by Kate

Besides a casual pair of jeans and a floral top, my other go-to outfit is a high waisted skirt and structured blouseI score the best vintage skirts at thrifted stores and consignment shops. Every time I find a new one, it feels like it was meant for me! I could envision this ladylike blue skirt a million different ways, but I thought adding the red orange top would be a warm contrast. 

It was a windy and overcast day in Pasadena, but my amazing blogger friend, Kate of Wear in LAwas able to snap these photos for me. Do you go weak in the knees at the sight of a vintage skirt also? 
SO many baby flyaway hairs!!!

Today I'm also linking up for a Bloglovin' Blog Hop here.

  5. You are so cute!

    I am curious.... do you go to church in or around Pasadena? I'm just wondering if you by chance maybe just maybe go to the same church as my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. :)

  7. my go to are full skirts, too- and i LOVE this outfit you whipped up. the structured top made it look so sleek, and the color palette is so happy and summery. i always feel so ridiculously feminine when i walk around in such a skirt- it reminds me of the 50s and 60s :)
