Vacation: All I ever wanted

Hello! Well, let me begin this entry with the very very happy TV is back!!!
Oh what a semester its been, with a perfectly good television set sitting unused under my bed, collecting dust, because the cable outlet was broken. Well its good to have you back, my friend!
In other news, I actually went out thrifting for a journalism project today, and everywhere I wanted to look was closed. Apparently lots of thrift stores take Mondays off? Hm. Well, I found this spectacle along the way:
Look at that gigantic ice cream cone! I want it!
I'll try to get a better picture of it on Wednesday, when I go thrifting again. That thing is gargantuan.
....and this is what I wore.
Cardigan: Calvin Klein, Tank: H&M, Skirt: Thrifted and reconstructed, Shoes: Target
Here's another bad ass print that I have in my collection.
It's a vacation print skirt (that used to be a ridiculous, ridiculous excuse for a dress), from the 1980s, that I bought from Goodwill for $5.
I reconstructed it this past winter, and I am just now wearing it for the first time. I can't believe it took me this long! I love looking down and seeing pineapples and pink corvettes on my skirt!
Fun '80s prints are the best.
and this is my normal canvas bag, that I got many years ago from American Eagle. I've switched out my leather bags for canvas bags for the season. I love how summery it feels.
I think I'm ready for a vacation of my own!
Luckily, I have one coming up in about a week and a half...more info to come :)

  1. LOVE the 80's skirt.. and of course, the reference to the 80's song. It's very much my all time favorite decade :D

  2. I love the kind of preppy look - the skirt really adds some interest.

  3. Thank you!
    Yes, I definitely felt the spirit of the '80s while wearing this skirt. I need to put up a picture of what it looked like when it was a dress!

  4. thank goodness your tele is back i would go MAD without mine x
