mismatched midi

do you have trouble thrifting things only to let them sit in a drawer or in your closet for years?  i'll admit it, i have quite a few vintage thrifted finds that i can't part with, but i can't seem to figure out how to wear either!  i've had this skirt for at least five years now, i kid you not.  vintage hoarder?  probably.  midis have always scared me, but i've decided to face my fear (with skirts at least; the snake fear may never be faced).  also, chris took my pictures, so that's why i look kind of goofy... sorry!






jacket: american eagle (really old) // shirt: vintage, thrifted // skirt: vintage, thrifted // belt: forever 21 // sandals: aldo

here are a few things of note: i almost just wore a white shirt but thought that would be too boring, so i decided to add another pattern to the skirt (the embroidery on the shirt) because who doesn't like an added dose of crazy?  my toes were freshly broken and not buddy wrapped and i could only hop on my right foot, so chris had to get the crutches out of the garage, and now that i think about it, i feel extra pathetic.  last, do not wear these shoes with broken toes; they will make you cry.

  3. So I really love your hair in these photos. I also love that skirt with the yellow- great executive decision to go the yellow route instead of white. Sorry about your toes!

  4. This skirt is really cute. I think it looks great with the wedges. When I have trouble styling a skirt, I usually go pretty boring and just pair it with a gray tee.

    1. thank you! white and grey match with everything, so it can be sooo difficult not pairing them with everything!

  5. What a fun printed skirt! The embroidery along the top of your shirt really sets off the blue, and the denim jacket is a really addition.

    I love that your comments are called "dinosaur roars"! :)

  6. I love this, but I hate that you broke your toesies. i hate broken toes, its so uncomfortable and you cant do anything about it. and why the heck are you wearing heels danielle, seriously, you should be wearing furry animal slippers. that's all.

  8. SOO sorry about your toes, boo! But you are really good at swinging on crutches :) I too fear the midi but it looks so cute on you! What a great vintage find, and I love that you put it with a yellow top! I hope you heal quickly...

  9. Ha, I LOVE that last pic - you are too cute! Hope the toes feel better soon! One of the reasons I don't go thrifting all that often is because I only end up wearing the things I thrift once...so I just stopped. But that skirt is gorgeous, love the pattern and the twirlability :)
