Hey, all! I'm writhing this from a plane. I'm literally in the sky as I blog! We are in the future as far as I'm concerned; who cares about flying cars?
Anyway, I got this BEAUTIFUL bad boy earlier this summer from a Facebook group dedicated to loving vintage goods. I have quite a few vintage novelty print skirts (I'm a medium to hardcore collector) but I've cooled my jets a bit this year. This 1940s farm print skirt came up and I immediately fell in love. It's unlike anything else in my collection as it has a black background, tons of greens, and a non-kitsch cartoon print of farm animals (many prints of animals are close to literal sketches or actually known or weird looking cartoons). The color scheme in this is also quite unique; I don't believe I have too many green pieces in my vintage novelty print skirt collection. Honestly, the photos don't do this justice. The colors are a lot more vibrant in person and it's just cool in ways I can't describe. I'm honestly considering wearing this to my birthday party later this month.
Rounding out the outfit I chose basic black (which I've done a lot lately, admittedly) and pops of orange with my Atomic Lucite Soap brooch and my Kate Spade orange crossbody. It only pseudo shows in photos, but there are muted orange undertones in the skirt which is why I opted for orange accessories. Though it's fall and it wouldn't be widely inappropriate, I think the yellow and green balances out the orange and black and don't make this look "halloween-y"! I haven't yet decided how else I want to style this skirt in the future--which is rare for me! Usually upon receiving an item I effortlessly brainstorm tons of ideas. I'm stumped on this one because black works so well with it!
As I mentioned, I'm on a plane. I'm coming back to Denver today after a trip from New York City visiting friends. It was fun and at times, honest to goodness silly. Within the next few weeks I'm planning on a few posts about my trip! I'll be back to blogging next week (with both blogs) and comedy stuff will be coming immediately after that. So many new things are coming, as well as announcements...so stay tuned by following me below to not miss a beat! Have a lovely weekend and we'll catch up soon!
