Food Fashion and Flow: Twist of Lime

Twist of Lime



Happy Tuesday loves! Did you watch the inauguration yesterday? Or better yet, were you lucky enough to attend? Lots of my friends went and I wish I could have been there, but I got to experience it vicariously through them.  I am loving the warm weather that has replaced the icy winter mornings and the days are starting to get a little longer. Feels like a warm spring day and I am loving it:-) This weather was perfect for enjoying an afternoon at the California Science Center.

As a lot of you know, one of my obsessions is thrifting. Even in high school, I used to love to scour thrift stores on Melrose to find unique pieces to mix into my wardrobe. I love full skirts and vintage looking dresses, so I was thrilled to find this cute lime skirt for three bucks at a local thrift store. You can really find some treasures if you have the patience to look for them. Have you found any great thrifted items lately?



The science center has great scenery 




Woosh! I love how much movement a full skirt has

white shirt: Macys, Lime Skirt: Goodwill  thrift store, Purple snakeskin clutch: specialty boutique:, jewelry: H&M, Shoes: Franco Sarto


Cute comfy flats


Can you believe this beautiful skirt was only $3.00?


Have an amazing day!

Wow LV--you thrifted that skirt??? Every time I see a blogger in an amazing thrifted piece like this it confirms my love of thrifting even more. I love that you paired it with the striped flats and crisp white oxford shirt!

You know you have some fierce style girl. You got that skirt in a thrift store and look like a million bucks! I am seeing a little Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn, and our first Lady Michelle with this cute look. Love your style! Everything looks so good together. Love your Franco Sarto zebra shoes too.

It's funny you should mention the inauguration; I find this outfit Michelle Obama-esque! That last photo is pure happiness. I love it. And YES that skirt was an amazing find for $3.00. You have the skin tone and tiny waist to pull it off beautifully.
