Hey guys!  I finally had a chance to post this outfit.  I wore this outfit back in May.  The skirt I'm wearing in these photos belonged to my mother (as did most of the vintage items in my closet).  When she gave it to me two years ago, it was perfect timing.  Pastel colors started to become a hit.

But let's talk about this top.  I'd been craving a white lace crop top since last Fall.  I found this one at Bloomingdale's.  It was backordered, so I had to wait two months to get it.  It's thick floral lace with a zipper in the back.  I kind of wish I'd gotten a shot of the back of it.  I'll have to remember to do that for you guys the next time I wear it.

Before I leave, I have to know.   I wear vintage in just about every post. Do any of you own and wear any vintage pieces?  Which are your favorite and how do you wear them?  Let me know in the comments below :)

I can't believe it's been a week since my last post!  I know I promised you guys another outfit post last week.  I was actually on vacation when I wrote the last one (more on that later).  Time flies when you're on vacation, I guess ;)

I'm not sure what type of look this is or how you would categorize it.  But all I can say is that it's comfy, a little sporty, fun, and a little glam.  This shirt was a birthday present from my boyfriend.  I usually don't wear sporty clothing, but when I saw this I fell in materialistic love.  The paisley print on the sleeves is my favorite part.  They actually have a few variations of this top.  The American flag one is their newest and now my favorite.  And I love that the brand, Upper Playground, is a local one.  You can check out more of their t shirt designs for women here.

Happy Wednesday!
