What I'm Wearing: Vintage Plaid and Metallics

It's that time of the year! Springtime, that is. The transition from snowy, disgusting cold to the lovely, warm sunshine is happening right before our eyes. I've sometimes found this weather difficult to dress for, as it often changes drastically from one day to the next. It's okay, I'd take this over my winter of boots and sweatpants, any day.

Plaid wool skirt: 1950's vintage
Black camisole: Forever21
White cardigan: 1960's vintage
Gold wedge sandals: BCBG Girls
Gold metallic clutch: 1950's vintage
Faux pearl earrings: Target

I had a good past few days. I went out for dinner and downtown bar hopping for a friend's birthday on Friday night. On Saturday,  my boyfriend and I went out for lunch on the artsy street in the city, we got to sit outside and people/dog watch. Also, I finally watched Precious and caught up on the latest season of Mad Men. Last week was rough, and I got some pretty crappy news that I don't feel like going into yet, but hopefully the issues can be resolved this week. Regardless, the weather is lovely! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.

That skirt is so pretty! I see tons of them when I'm thrifting but never have actually bought one! This is such a modern take...maybe I will take the plunge next time I run into one!
