Food Fashion and Flow: Skirt as a Dress

Skirt as a Dress


 Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! It has been so warm lately and I have really been enjoying this wave of sunshine, which feels very much like the beginning of spring.  With the economy the way that it is, I find myself shopping my own closet or scouring thrift stores for great finds. I would much rather make sure my son has everything even if that means I do more thrifting for myself.  Just a reminder that there is still time to enter the giveaway for the Gabriel studded handbag. Click here for guidelines.  I have some poetic flow coming your way this week, so be sure to stop by later this week.

Today I am wearing a vintage denim jacket I scored from a thirft shop and a skirt that I have had a long time and have never worn.  When I put it on, I wasn't sure how I felt about it, so I refashioned my skirt into a strapless dress and I think I prefer it this way. What do you think?  I am not sure I love this, but I don't think it was a complete fail (LOL)

I really love the way this gold necklace looks against this rust colored dress and blue denim

Denim jacket: Vintage thrifted, Skirt: Burlington Coat Factory:, Purse: Aldo, Snakeskin Boots: DSW

It is not always easy, but every day I pick up my cross and follow God

I hope your day is filled with blessings!

Fabulous as usual! Those boots are KILLER!

I am totally in agreement in shopping my closet more or thrifting to ensure my kids want for nothing. #TeamGreatParents!

Very creative use of the skirt. I think it looks fantastic on you. You've accessorized it perfectly too!

I totally agree that thrift shopping is the way to go. Trouble is I never seem to find anything I can actually fit in there or that is easily and affordably altered. But I "envy" those that can.

I love it as a dress! The cascading ruffles are so sweet and feminine. The color is fantastic against your beautiful caramel skin! Love the necklace! You are just so pretty. It is my prayer each day that the Lord gives me the heart, mind and strength to be a little bit more like Him today than I was on yesterday!! We are His constant work-in-progress! Stay encouraged in the Lord! Kiah
