I miss my waist. // circle skirt love

I'm back, and I should totally be updating you about our trip and my reunion. But, instead, I'm obsessing over 1950s skirts with tiny waists - because, well, mine is currently missing.

Back when I got dressed up every morning (and going all the way back to high school and college), I used to wear a lot of skirt-plus-boot combos, especially vintage A-line or full wool plaid skirts in the fall, or printed cotton ones with flats in the spring. I've been living in jeans (and, in the winter, wrap sweaters) since Lorelei was born, but I'm determined to get back to my old stylish ways this fall even though I'll have a messy little newborn to cramp my style. My goal: a once-a-week "what I wore" post (either here or on instagram) featuring clothes other than yoga pants.

If you follow me on Etsy, you know I've been favoriting vintage skirts like crazy - and I compiled my favorites onto a Pinterest board for your online window shopping pleasure. Here, a few of my top picks (click on the images to go directly to the Etsy listings to purchase!):

...and some cold-weather options:

And a "just dreaming" find, unless I win the lottery:


  1. Oh these are beautiful, especially that last one, so lovely! Really looking forward to your what you wore posts, I'm always looking for new ideas!

  2. I love all of these skirts. It makes me want to break out the sewing machine and make some of my own. That reminds me, I have this book if you want to borrow it.
    I am REALLY looking forward to your posts!

  3. Oh, that first one is to die for! I have a few precious thrift store skirt finds that I've been wearing for years and years and I don't think I'll ever stop. At least as long as they continue to fit. Love. I'm looking forward to seeing what you wear in the fall :)
