Green Paisley


Hello Ladies!

It was a nice day today, and my parents were visiting( when we took this picture), so we went to Corkscrew, one of our favorite wine bars and took them out. Along with a delciious fruity, but dry Malbec, we got sushi and some chinese food.

I was in the mood for wearing a print with this vintage looking one-of my favorite skirts of mine, so this is it!








Hope everyone’s week is going well so far. We are soon going to the Asheville Film Festival., It is an Annual event, where there are indie films, documentaries, feature films, and shorts. I will be telling you more about the event when we return.

This day we went to enjoy wine and just relax with my parents. We had a great time, and loafed around the shopping center, where I “dragged my mom” into Charming Charlie. lol No, we had fun while the men sat on the cushioned pink chairs there, reserved for the men that aren’t interested in looking at dangly earrings.

Today, I wanted a vintage look, so this is one of my older green paisley cardigans, paired with one of my favorite vintage looking lace skirt by Ann Taylor. My shoes have a square toe, with a bow, and a square heel, giving it more of a vintage vibe.They are a 1 inch heel!

Hope you all have a great day!

    I love the mix of patterns and texture here. The paisley green is lovely. Your scallop skirt is so feminine making the whole look so romantic. I can also see the ‘vintage’ feel. You look great.
