budding amish

Skirt, Cardigan & Necklace- Thrifted; Blouse- Smart Set; Shoes- The Bay (Gifted)

My week of floral pants may have drawn to a close, but I still have many other flowery clothes in my wardrobe (my second favourite print, next to leopard!) I love the jewel tones in this thrifted skirt and I played up the matronly length for a look that I like to call the budding Amish!

  5. Floral is a wonderful print - I agree completely! And this skirt is no exception. The colors are so fun and I think the length is wonderful. The modern midi skirt, yes? Lovely outfit!

  8. The shape of the skirt and the bright colours make it way more than matronly! And I love the ruffled blouse!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
