Short and Minty

I love this patterned skirt.

I thrifted this skirt back in March and was immediately attracted to this floral medallion pattern. When I first saw it I was excited, and thought "wow a pair of patterned shorts" but, upon closer inspection I saw that it was a skirt...a very short skirt, and I almost didn't buy it for that reason.

I couldn't get over how much I love the print, so I thought that in the very warm days of summer I will be able to pull this off. 

So, I wore it and thumbed my nose to those who say you can't wear mini skirts after age 35! or is 40 or maybe 45?

 Well, I did it!

And, I'd like to think that at my home, on the lake, I can pull it may be a different story out in public.

Skirt: old navy-thrifted
Shirt: Gap
Sandals: TJ Maxx (old)
Necklace: repurposed DIY (more on that in the next post)
