I pretty much live in skirts like this during the warmer spring and summer months. Washable and breathable cotton, pairs equally well with a modern knit top or lightweight cardigan. They add a little glamor into what would otherwise be a basic outfit. Plus who can resist twirling in a circle skirt (especially aided with a bit of pouf from a lightweight vintage petticoat)? I know I can't!
Is it just me, or does it feel weird referring to the 80s and 90s as vintage? I know the 80s has been termed as such for a while, but even that feels odd since I was born in the 80s and remember people wearing things like this skirt. Let's not even get me started on 90s clothing as "vintage"--especially since I wore a lot of what is now being rediscovered by younger sets the first time around! (Which makes me feel incredibly old just typing that... haha!)
My apologies for radio silence last week. I've been struggling with some health issues, and they just all compounded to the point where I decided to largely step away from the internet for a week. Starting to feel back to my old self, and have lots of things planned--including a sewing tutorial that I polled on Facebook about, and some vintage furnishings that I'm revamping. My to-do list for the summer is a mile long--better get started on it!
