It was super hot, time to get out the short shorts and light sheer tops! I adore this frilly and delicate chiffon top I bought on my last trip to Japan a few years back. The floral details and ruffles are so pretty and airy. I wore it with a pair of high waisted denim shorts with cute heart shaped pockets on front and back, and then added the perfect amount of girliness with a floral satchel and crochet laced up heels. Let's hope this warm weather continue!

I Wear My Heart On My Shorts

I love statement pieces, like this vintage snake print skirt that was newly given a fishtail cut. Tacky snake prints are everywhere, the good ones are hard to come by. I paired it with a chiffon tied front crop top that has cage cut out details on front and back, nude tassel flats, and ornate metal framed round sunnies. Lastly, I finished off with a yellow satchel to give this neutral outfit a pop of color!

This is like a pop art version of floral tapestry! Don't let your eyes play tricks on you... what looks to be a thick coat is really a super lightweight jacket! This vintage piece is made of a knit-like polyester material, thin and comfy. I believe it is actually a shirt but so oversized I am wearing it as a coat. I am not very fond of its collar which is small and unflattering so I added a vintage fur collar on top instead! I am so drawn to the beautiful rose pattern and colors, and I wanted to accentuate that with colorful purse and shoes!

I wanted to do something a little different for this post. I wanted a theme, a story. Traveling in style with vintage train case and carry on in a 40s inspired dress by the railroad tracks. I love this gorgeous Sadie Ruffle Dress in the Slap and Tickle print gifted by Trashy Diva. If you haven't heard of Trashy Diva, you are missing out! They create amazing vintage inspired clothing in all kinds of cuts with many different patterns and fabrics. The Slap and Tickle print is my favorite, I adore its soft pink color and the ribbons, feathers, and swirly hands. It even comes with a matching belt! This dress makes me feel like a doll.

Quick late afternoon post! Keeping this short and sweet because I am so exhausted from work! I am in love with this vintage skirt I just got last week! Black and white vertical stripes with colorful florals, high waisted and fits me perfectly! I paired it with an adorable peter pan collar lace top and some crazy bright neon flats!

Sharing with you yet another vintage dress of mine. The pastel floral is darling and I love the two different kinds of textures it has going on. The top part is matelassé and the bottom is pleated. The best part about this dress, however, is the price. I got it for $4 at a thrift store a couple years back! FOUR DOLLARS! I couldn't believe my eyes! This lady was actually trying to take it out of my hands (shopping basket), and then tried to sweet talk me out of it. Nice try, lady! Oh this dress is so amazing it even traveled all over Italy with me last year! The perfect little vintage dress for all occasions!
