Hat: Madewell // Sweater: H&M (similar here, here, or here) // Skirt: thrifted vintage (similar here or here) // Boots: Madewell (here)
I didn't realize how much I was missing patchwork in my life until I thrifted this skirt. I wish I had more photos of it but the girls were going all Lord of the Flies in the background and being a semi-responsible parent that sometimes takes pictures of my outfit for the internet I had to referee.
Back to patchwork, several designers showed it on the runways making it fairly easy to find in stores (SEA New York F/W 2016 comes to mind and that specific dress available for purchase here). I'm wondering if I should add this Topshop blouse to my wardrobe, the only thing holding me back is the fact that there's maaaaybe 8 days of proper summer weather here.

I wasn't kidding.
