Twirl Grey

When I spotted this skirt at ARC's Value Village, I knew it would be mine regardless of fit or flatter.  Buy it I did, and with a little snip-snip at the waistband and a not-as-little tug-tug on the elastic I was able to adjust it to my size.  Isn't elastic great?  I think so.

So I wore this on a very windy day and barely escaped a few potentially embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moments right outside my workplace.  It was fun and all...having all this fabric blowing and twirling around my body, but it just wasn't safe.  You get my drift.

I get really cold in my office so I incorporate layers into my summer outfits whenever possible.  The pink cardigan matched the floral print in my headband, which isn't really seen in the photo due to the glare.  I recently went a little headband crazy at Two Young Hearts Etsy shop.  Though I'm not a frequent headband wearer, I can't seem to pass up a great print from Two Young Hearts.  Why?  Because they're only $3/ea., free shipping, and this kind actually stays put on my head.  That's why.  And no, I don't need to justify my binge headband buying to anyone...psh.

Not sure if you are a SATC fan or not, but that skirt totally reminds me of one that Carrie wears in the most recent movie. I love it!! Add the fact that it is thrifted and I love it even more!
