bird cage

calivintage: bird cage

today marks my third guest post for the rebecca minkoff blog, minkette! and i’m celebrating spring in my hand-printed linen skirt from snoozer loser. what’s more, i pulled my espadrilles out from the depths of my closet for a little test drive. we’re still getting a lot of rain, so i have a feeling i’m going to have to replace them for rain boots for at least another month, but it was fun to enjoy them in the fleeting sunlight.

below are the outfit details, but don’t forget to stop by my guest post at minkette!

hat: felt hat from the local drug store
top: asos pussybow blouse
skirt: snoozer loser nyc hand-printed linen skirt
shoes: castaner espadrilles

    So glad I checked your labels – what an awesome drugstore find!!

    The print on the skirt is adorable. But is it the kind of linen that gets all crumpled after approximately five minutes of wearing?

  13. Emily March 23, 2011 at 10:55 am #

    Oh my goodness, this is the most amazing skirt that I have ever seen!! The entire look is fabulous but I can’t get over that skirt!

    That skirt is amazing – if it had pockets it would maybe be the perfect skirt. The print looks extra happy against the bright background :)
