A "Swirly" Skirt

So, this photo is also a month old, but I am super excited to share this outfit with you all. I had been longing to wear this skirt which I scored at a flea market for only $1, but didn't have the right top to wear with it. In comes this 60s homemade top, found at my church's rummage sale. The two compliment each other nicely and since they are also separates, I can pair them with other tops and bottoms. I am really on a separates kick lately.

So this skirt.... It once upon a time was a Swirl and someone along the way chopped off the top (tear!) and modified it to be a wrap skirt. I'm sure that when it was a dress, it was quite the Swirl. Butterflies and yellow piping!!! Anyways, enough longing for what was... it was a deal at a dollar and I knew I would really enjoy wearing it since I love Swirls so much. And I do enjoy wearing it. Probably my favorite skirt!

I agree: separates are ideal. Too bad someone chopped the Swirl, but it does make a cute skirt!

Love the skirt! Such a bummer when people hack away at good clothing, I've seen far too much, but hey, at least it's still wearable and super cute. Love your blog!

Perfect summer colors! Even if it has been mutilated, your Swirl makes a cute skirt. Since it can't be a swirl anymore, maybe it's a whirl?

YAY for separates, I've found more vintage skirts lately but have trouble finding cotton blouses that fit me. :(

Would love to see a close up photo of the print of your skirt at some point!
