Vintage skirts

While shopping around and hitting up the antique shops the German professor and I went into a vintage clothing store. I had stopped in a number of times before, but never bought anything. He was on the hunt of a loden style jacket that he saw while at the tourist information office. The shade of green he was after proved to be rather illusive.
I, however, lucked out with 5 skirts. (Yes, 5!) Initially I was only going to purchase two, however as I was buying them I learned they were ridiculously inexpensive thanks to a sale, so I opted to get all of them. A few really remind me of skirts I would see at Anthropologie, but obviously much cheaper and more unique. I never would have guessed I'd be trying on skirts for the professor's opinion, but it was a lot of fun.

I was also happy that Kokon had the dishes that I saw when Lauren was in town. I decided to get two of the bowls for salsa.

Now I'll think about our lovely day when I wear my skirts or enjoy some fresh salsa from the new bowls.

I love the peacock one and the stripey blue and white one. I love me a bargain!

I am really excited to wear them all - I hope the weather cooperates and I like them as much as I did at the store!

It's so nice to wear skirts before it gets cold again.
