apartment hunting

Skirt: Vintage
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Vintage
Shirt: Clothing Swap
Jacket: Thrifted
Bracelet: Gift from Cambodia
Necklace: Available in my shop
Earrings: Available in my shop

How this outfit came to be Hattified: I started with the skirt, added a pop of pattern with the shirt. The necklace and earrings were too good a match not to be worn. I love how the flowers in the necklace match the tiny flowers in the shirt. Threw on the jean jacket since it was a little chillier today.

Why this outfit Works: The navy belt and the navy strip at the bottom of the shirt balance each other out and tie in the violet blue blouse. 

Another Version: Try it with a pair of skinny dark jeans. 

Apartment hunting is hard work. It is stressful...but also fun when you're rewarded with a marble slab ice cream cone. Who doesn't love birthday cake ice cream with gummies in it? 


  1. My gosh, that skirt is the best thing ever!! Oddly enough, I swear I had the same one but in knee length when I was in middle school. It's one of those pieces that I wish I held onto to. (I'm still hoping it's buried somewhere at my parent's house). All those pops of purple are so cute too!

    Best wishes with the apartment hunt! I'm thinking I need that bday cake ice cream with the gummies right about now:)

  2. This skirt was such a great find-- LOVE clothing swaps. So good!


  3. This skirt is definitely gorgeous!!! I love it with the floral blouse and the denim jacket. Denim jackets go with everything, always!!
    Good luck apartment hunting, I can imagine that would be super stressful

  4. Lovin the whole ensemble and the thought process that went through with it.

    Good luck with apartment hunting!
