What I wore; to my parents! - The Dainty Squid

What I wore; to my parents!

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

 The details;
shirt - Target
skirt - Thrifted
belt - Thrifted
camera bag - JoTotes
shoes - Thrifted

Three things: 
One - I am absolutely in love with this skirt. Add it to the list of "things I wish weren't vintage so I could buy them in every color ever", seriously. I know, it looks just like a normal skirt, but I swear it has super powers one of which is making you feel so incredibly fancy and feminine but still being perfect to play in. It fits perfectly, I think it was made for me. I tried it on with a ton of different shirt and belt combos before finally settling on this since I was just heading over to my parents to visit but I see this skirt being worn til it falls apart. High waist, knee length skirts in solid colors are most likely going to be my fall uniform, the thrift store has been enabling this obsession.

Two - Isn't my new camera bag beeeeeeautiful!? You saw my other one a week or so ago in this outfit post. But I think this one might be my favorite of the two (Oh, I dunno, it's really hard to choose!) I have a review with tons of detail pictures ready to post soon, probably sometime early next week.

Three - My nephew is the coolest little dude in the world. I wish he'd stay this age forever.

Hope you have a perfect day! I've got a nice day planned that includes catching up on emails, finishing up a new nail tutorial, and rinsing hair dye out, the green is gone! ;)
xoxo!

PS. How do you like the new layout?! If you're reading in a reader make sure to jump out and check out how snazzy The Dainty Squid is looking!!

  40. I totally get you on the skirt. When I saw the first picture the first thing I thought was "OMG Where did she get that skirt, I need it in 10 different colors!".

    I hope I'm not being lazy by asking, but could do some nail tutorials? Your nails are always amazing and I have no idea how to recreate without making a mess.
