I found this skirt and I just loved the print and the classic pencil shape. 

 It's a silk cotton blend and is fully lined, it feels so nice on.

It wasn't until I turned it around did I notice the exposed zipper.

I love the unexpected contrast and the little pull on the zipper.  It wasn't my size so I had to do some alterations for a perfect fit. But, when you thrift for $4 a practically new skirt, it's worth it!

With my favorite closet staple, the chambray shirt, it was a simple, fun outfit. The shirt was also a new $1 thrift. I have a J.Crew Selvedge chambray shirt I love and wear often but, it is a weighty shirt and this is a cheaper version of chambray that has the benefit of being whisper thin for warmer spring days.

Finished off with a pearl cascade necklace, a vintage coach purse and classic leather flats I was off and ready for soccer practice. 

I'm linked up today at Harper's Happenings for HOTT, check it out!

  2. What a great thrifty find, the exposed zipper is quite lovely on the skirt!

  3. This is a great summer look - I like how the shirt brings out the print on the skirt.
