some folks are born made to wave the flag

Thrifted Target shirt, thrifted handmade skirt, vintage purse, and five year old gladiator sandals. 

This skirt. What can I say about this skirt? It's the perfect cross between tacky and old-fashioned patriotism. I bought it over a year ago and never got around to wearing it until this Memorial Day. Somehow a red, white, and blue skirt just doesn't work on a day that's not a national holiday. It reminds me of all those boho skirts that were super-popular around 2005. I had one and I really loved it. It's funny how sentimentality can affect so many of our decisions.

Another year has passed and these sandals are still a summer staple in my closet. I've had them for almost 6 years now. In that time they were deemed a trend that you shouldn't be caught dead in, to being popular again. I don't care whether they're popular or not, they always seem to go with everything.

Please forgive me for my shirt being so wrinkled. With winter being 9 months long around here, my summer shirts sit stuffed in a drawer collecting wrinkles.

I hope you had a great week and don't forget tomorrow I'll be selling some of my goodies at the Bloggers Closet Yard Sale!
