Gingham and floral in the hot hot sun

I am obviously concentrating on not flashing the camera. My expression may change, but the position of my thighs won't.

Vintage fascinator: thrifted
Shades: Target
Silver necklace: gift from aunt
Gingham blouse: H&M
Magenta tank: Terranova
Black and white floral skirt: thrifted
Madden Girl Booties
Vintage '60s frame bag: thrifted

This skirt actually wouldn't be my thing...just a generic thing from Anne Taylor from a few seasons ago. I almost passed it up before realizing it was a size too small and also from the petite collection (and I am 5'10".) Suddenly, I visualized it as a high-waisted mini.

I am developing a '60s frame bag infection. It is metastasizing.

I wore this whole get-up to an outdoor party and built the whole concept around my new MAC lipstick. It is basically tattooed on, and I will need a brillo pad to get it off.

Not that I mind.

Super cute skirt. I love the black and white floral print. I love your heels too. What shade of MAC is it?

I am loving your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine. Why is it that when you want lipstick to get off it would rather not...and vice versa.

You are 5'10"--I never would have guesses! The gingham shows up much better here than at Chictopia

He! It's always fun doing the thigh-squeeze thing in pictures! Nice gingham shirt by the way, I love everything gingham!

I have ZERO complaints about that skirt! It's super cute and looks like it would probably go with a trillion things. (And the 'this skirt is too small — GUESS WHAT, now it's a high-waisted skirt' strategy is one I've employed many times over the years.)

Also, I'm a new reader, and I don't know if I've said this yet, but your blog gets the This Turns My Crank seal of approval! (Note: that may not actually be a thing.)

C'mon by and see me sometime!
