Sky Blue 50s Sweater & a Bold Floral Skirt

It's Friday! I wore this colorful floral skirt and blue 50s sweater to class yesterday. I'd brought this outfit home over spring break with every intention of wearing it, but that never happened because it was pretty cool outside that week. I figured yesterday was the perfect day to wear it since it wasn't too hot for the knit top yet. 

I don't get a ton of use out of this sweater because it's rarely a moderate temperature in Georgia, but it's still a great piece to have in my closet. I won it on a Paraders Vintage giveaway a year or so ago. You can't beat this pretty sky blue color!

vintage sweater: baar & beards - paraders vintage | skirt: homemade by mom | shoes: self esteem - shoe carnival | necklace - gift


Jeanie and I were going to learn a bit of sewing from Mom a couple summers back, but that didn't end up happening so Mom just made the skirts for us. That means the execution was about 1000x better than anything I could have done! I love the bold print and red waistband on this skirt. The guy working at Keba (delicious local sandwich-y place) complimented me on it!

nails: o.p.i. - my paprika is hotter than yours!

Well, I hope you liked this colorful spring outfit! I sure enjoyed it. I was also kind of weirded out by the coincidental matching of my outfit to my nail polish. But anyway.

Have a great weekend!

Gasp! Compliments from strangers (especially guys!) are always the best. That really is such a cute skirt, and your mom did an awesome job on making it for you. The print is so bold and lovely!

Have an awesome Friday, Jamie! <3

Compliments from strangers are always a good way to brighten up my day. At least people notice I'm trying to dress like a decent human being? ;)

That sweater is just so adorable and it goes perfectly with that skirt! I can't believe that your mom made that - I never would have guessed, but that makes it about 1,000X cooler. It will have more meaning and it will probably hold up better! Very cute!
