Grab Yer Part-ner!


Earrings:Gift from a Friend
Red Beads: Grandmother's
Rhinestone necklace: Burke's Outlet
Flag Pin: Gift from a Friend
Cameo Ring: French Quarter, New Orleans
Tee: Macy's
Belt: Local
Skirt: Thrifted
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (Clearance)

So I seem to be wearing my Zebra wedges every Sunday here lately!  That happens a lot during the Summer months.  They are just so easy and make every outfit fun. :o)

A little sweetheart came up to me before church started and took this flag pin off of her blouse and gave it to me.  She said it looked so nice with my outfit that she wanted me to have it.  What a dear!

I usually wear this skirt for casual everyday outfits.  I like to throw a graphic tee and sandals with it and flounce around doing my errands. :o)  So here's the fun part...it's an honest to goodness Square Dancing skirt!  I thrifted it along with its coordinating peasant blouse.  A lady had donated a dozen or so of her Square Dancing costumes and I pounced on this skirt and a brightly colored one that I call my "Fiesta Skirt" (you can catch a glimpse of it HERE in my Instagram roundup of for Me Made May).  Sadly, I wasn't quick enough to nab one of the two petticoats with them.  Even though I have sewn my own petticoats, it would have been nice to add to my collection for only a few bucks.  Oh well, I'm happy enough with the skirts. :o)

  2. What a beautiful skirt! I love the ruffles! Had they been added to the skirt after she bought it, do you think?
