Strike Out

On Saturday (aka Miracle Hair Day), I needed an outfit that could withstand a hot day of thrifting on U Street with some lovely blogging ladies (and, as it turned out, dinner with a best friend that evening!)

This red skirt is a thrifted find from years and years ago that does more hanging in my closet than being shown off to the world. Mostly because it's one of those that is the perfect size when standing up straight, but when sitting for long lengths of time, or worse, EATING, becomes rather tight and uncomfortable. Eek.

I also wish I would have brought a lighter bag, but alas, a blogger must always be prepared with her camera tucked away! Right? Even when it means sticking it in a huge leathery bag with a strap that digs into your poor sunburned shoulder?

Moral of this story is that when it came to comfort, I sorta striked out here. But at least it was cute.


  1. I love the red, blue and yellow combo. I always carry a heavy bag, because I am always prepared for everything...haha.

  2. The primary colors look so cute on you! I carry a pretty big bag to work but otherwise I try to keep it on the lighter side so my arm isn't killing me :)

  3. Great skirt! You look cute, hope you weren't too uncomfortable!

  4. You did look super cute! If you were at all uncomfortable you totally fooled me :)
    ps- I just realized why polka dots "look like you" it's the background for your blog!! duh

  5. For the 500th time, I LOVE that necklace!! I'm going to be your first customer if you start an Etsy shop, Brenda!

  6. that skirt is adorably sweet!

    do you want to follow each other (on bloglovin' and gfc)? let me know.
    see you around!
