Wishing For Sunshine

I’ve been working very hard lately on getting items photographed so I can finally open up my new little pet project of a vintage/retro online store, and as I was photographing this skirt to sell, my husband saw me and said “You’re not getting rid of that, are you?” 8

Apparently, he really likes it. So I guess that means I get to keep it! Which is nice, considering mostly he tells me “Eh, lose it…” when I ponder whether or not I should keep an awesome vintage piece I originally bought to sell.


But now that I think about it, I know why he likes this skirt: it’s part hippie, part prarie-girl with its ruffled edges and wonky waistline. Seriously, this skirt is vee’d on one side and buttons up the other and I have NO idea which way is front and which way is back. So I just wear it side to side.

Modcloth/gift: Sunnies

I really love this outfit, though, and I can’t WAIT for summer so that I can actually wear it outside.  Are you all excited that it’s finally spring?

Although here, it’s been torrential rain and forecasts of snow. Sigh.

Happy Thursday!

    You look really glamorous. 🙂

    I know how you feel, I just bought a new skirt (that I love! I didn’t think I could be so excited about a piece of clothing), and I can’t wait for a warmer weather. It has been raining all day today, and it doesn’t show any sign of stopping. 🙁

    But, I refuse to let it get me down. I love spring!

    Have a nice Friday and a great weekend Kristina! 😀

      Thank you!
      Gah, I know! I’ve been longingly eyeing all of my summery clothes for weeks now, wishing it would quit raining and start being warmer. Seriously. Warm weather seems so far away!
      But the blooming trees and flowers definitely help cheer everything up!

      You have a great weekend, too! 😀

    I really love this outfit! And trust me, I reallllly know how you feel.. I live in upstate New York, which means I was right in the middle of that HUGE snow fall we had for the past 2 days. Hopefully it’ll go away soon though.

    I think you’re supposed to wear the buttons to the back? Well, either way, I’m glad you’re keeping it – it’ll look great with a petticoat underneath!

    I’m glad you’re keeping this one. I actually have no idea either about the where the buttons or the V should be. I like your solution! Hehe. 🙂

    Also, I think it’s hilarious that your husband likes hippie style, I never would have guessed.
