Vintage Floral

Jacket: Vintage Levi's (my moms/similar); Tee: Cynthia Rowely via TJ Maxx (similar);
 Skirt: Self-Made (similar style); Sandals: Sam & Libby via Target (similar); 
Handbag: Kate Spade; Necklace: Ann Taylor (similar); Belt: Target

 I have always been a huge fan of late 60s fashion. Shift dresses, bell bottoms, A-Line skirts, bold florals, and jumpsuits. Seriously, if I were a part of that fashionable period, I'm pretty sure I would have rocked it out daily! Lately, I've been pulling out my bold florals and loving every loud moment! My mom and I purchased this fabric at least three years ago and have been dying so fearful of cutting it! We knew we wanted to make this skirt with the fabric, but we were so unsure of how to lay out the fabric, as well as laying the pattern out, in case the flowers and stems never met up. Finally, my mom said "just cut it" and I did! The floral pattern couldn't have matched up any better!!

I couldn't be more in love with this skirt than I already am! I received so many compliments from random strangers when I wore it which made the skirt mean even more. No one could believe we made it! They thought it was vintage, an amazing compliment, and loved how I styled the whole look. If only I could have worn this decades ago!
