My Outfit Monday: Va va va vintage



Morning everyone!mom0813photo.jpg

Sorry I'm a little late. I had a shoe emergency. (Read: I couldn't find my shoes this morning.)


Let me tell you the story behind my outfit. 

It begins with brunch (as all good stories do, natch). A few friends got together at The Refinery in Tampa yesterday. None of us had been before, and it was a blast. 

But, the best part was the view. We sat in the upstairs patio area, which gave us a pretty clear view of the streets and other stores below - including the vintage boutique RIGHT NEXT DOOR. 

Can you say fate?

It was pretty much decided almost instantaneously that after we ate, we would shop.

We'd only been in Sherry's Yesterdaze Vintage Clothing and Antiques for a few minutes when I came across this skirt from the 60s.

I had to have it. 

I loved that it had a pattern, and that is was bright (it reminded me of lemons and chocolate).

Here's a close up:

And the best part? It fit perfectly.

I hesitated slightly at the $25 price tag, but quickly got over it.

I had the whole "How would you feel if you walked away and then someone else got it" conversation in my head.

I pretty much decided right away to wear the skirt to work this morning, rain or shine. But I hesistated about what to pair with it

The pattern is adventurous enough, and I didn't want anything else to clash or sompete. I finally settled on a simple dark grey shirt, a string of grey and white beads and white pumps. 

Do you guys approve?
