The Picnic Skirt








//sweater, wedges, belt, purse: thrifted / cami: forever21 / skirt: made by me / bracelet: gift//


Gingham skirts usually remind me of two things--picnic blankets or Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Despite that, I've fallen completely in love with this print, and I've been collecting yards of it in different colors for my sewing stash. This was one of the first things I made with it, and I'm sort of in love with it. It's amazingly versatile and it also had the fun retro vibe that I love. I've lately been loving it with mustard colors, like this yellow sweater. The texture of  the sweater is a fun juxtaposition with the gingham print, and it's also perfect for a cooler day, like the church potluck that I wore this outfit to. I originally thought of this as more of a summer skirt, but I think it will work as a good transition into early fall...I'm excited to come up with more ways to style it in the next couple of weeks!

I hope you all are having a wonderful day! ❤

  6. I don;t normally like mustard coloured clothing, but I like how you pull them off. You pair them really well and they look classy and old fashioned. I really like the skirt with the sandles.

  7. Ain't nothing quite as nice as a bit of gingham I always think. That skirt looks great with the knitted jumper. So autumnal! X
