Hello my fabulous Chictopians! So sorry I have not posted or contributed for five days, I was busy packing and making the long, exhausting trip across the globe back home to California. I am so happy to be back! Ten-hour flights are exhausting, which I believe is even an understatement. I had one ten-hour flight, and another six-hour flight and got back home late last night. Phew. It was so great to see my lovely parents waiting for me at the airport though, and they brought my pups along! Traveling that far is worth it just for that.
I am wearing a vintage watch that my grandma so happily gave me, which she said belonged to my great-grandmother at first. When she was wearing it, I noticed her having a hard time reading it so I asked if I could wear it and she was so beyond thrilled to give it to me. She loves that I have it, as it is a very special watch and I love having something I can wear daily that carries so much sentimentality. I also got these shoes when I was in Belgrade, I was so surprised to see them sitting so daintily atop a shoe box in an obscure store close to the city. The color drew me to them, I knew they had to be mine. It is good to have several pairs of shoes that aren’t black, anyway!
I also clearly have an affinity for American Apparel skirts, what with the petticoats in two colors, the nude chiffon and now this pleated one. They are so good at making skirts that fit so properly…I love that this one has its pleating on the back and sits so high on the waist. I added the little vintage trumpet pin because it is just so adorable. My blouse is silk, which is so comfortable to wear. I labeled this outfit as a fall outfit because it is very transitional and while I got used to the obscene heat in Greece, getting back here I didn’t find it all that hot.
I hope everyone has a fabulous day!! Thank you for all the love on the last two posts, you guys are the greatest!!! xxx
