A Day Late and A Dollar Short

I know, I know, a day late and a dollar short. I hope everyone will forgive me for posting my first ever Paper Doll Project outfit a day late. I cross my heart that I wore this outfit yesterday. I was paired up with Kimberlee of I Have A Degree In This! I asked her to style this vintage midi skirt I thrifted from the Goodwill. I have only worn it once and haven't worn it again because I wasn't really sure what to pair with it. Kimberlee gave me two great, different ways to wear this skirt and this is the look I chose. I really like the way the white tee looks with this skirt. It really lets you focus on the beauty of the skirt. I wore some bracelets and a necklace with this outfit as well but took it off to bake some cupcakes and forgot to put it back on.

Today is also Everybody, Everywear: Thrift. I have become much more interested in thrifting since I started reading fashion blogs especially since I started reading Jentine's blog. She finds amazing stuff and it really inspired me to get out there and start digging to find my own treasures!

Please take some time to visit the other pairings to see how they styled each other, and maybe take a trip over to EBEW to see all the thrifted items we’re wearing today.
