Outfit Post: Boats and Flags and Bettie Page (oh my!)

Well, the truth is, this week Jayme and I tried to do a "Sister Style-Off" with graphic tees (inspired by her Clarissa Explains It All tee). We both took photos over last weekend, and then I sent mine to her to put them together...

...but the photos were SO drastically different, it's like we were in two different countries! Pennsylvania is still covered in snow, and Jayme had some great overcast lighting. I took my photos on Sunday morning before church, and here in VA, we've barely had a drop of snow and the sun was shining brightly.  I loved this outfit, and it was still a good challenge, but we'll save a real Sister Style-Off for next week!

Outfit details:  letterman jacket-thrifted, tee-H&M (men's section!), brooch-vintage (gift from parents), cardigan-Charlotte Russe (4+ years ago),skirt-vintage (in the shop here!), tights-Target, heels-Jellypop via

I has just given my hair a nice trim the night felt so much shorter, even though I just trimmed all the ends, but it looks super shiny and healthy now!

This silk skirt has been in the shop a while--the pattern is ships on the main part of the skirt, with various flags at the hem.  Besides being cute, I thought it was super flattering.  One of you ladies should snag it!

Hey, guess what?  It's Friday!!! I am so excited. Tomorrow I am helping to host a baby shower for my sister-in-law. There is a LOT of work to be done before that (cooking, cleaning, making pretty things...), so I better get to it!  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!



  1. Hi that is a really nice outfit post, i love that skirt!! Have a lovely day xxx

  2. Love the idea of a sister style off, though I do not have a sister, so that could present a problem ;)
    The skirt is SO pretty, love the pleats and the ship print is perfect, especially with the flag hem! Happy Friday!
