This is another one of my favorite outfits. I'm still obsessed with these polka dotted skirts, even if they did lead me to have a Marilyn Monroe moment in Chicago last weekend. I have the skirt in three colors and I wear them constantly. I'm also quite obsessed with this shirt. I have a lot of trouble thrifting tops. Skirts? No problem! Dresses? I love sorting through them. Shoes? Easy! But shirts are hard! I find that so many are short and wide which doesn't work for my body or style. I so rarely find anything that fits the way I'd like that I'm not really the biggest fan of spending tons of time searching for them. I had a lucky day a few weekends back and hit the vintage shirt jackpot! Three things normally doesn't constitute the work "jackpot" but when in conjunction with thrifting shirts for me it definitely does. This was one of them. It's plain so it will go with a lot of things and the fit is spot on. As with almost everything I love and pick up vintage - I wish it wasn't vintage just so I could have the option to buy more of them.
Hope you have an excellent Thursday. I've got lots of baking to do today, cookies and a birthday cake for my nieces and nephew. Plus my niece asked for colorful cupcakes to take to school for her birthday - how could I say no?!
