I know I start many of my posts with a story about the magic of thrifting, but today is no different. This skirt was sitting in a Goodwill a few months ago, and I'm sad to say that I keep forgetting about it. It's such a beauty, though, and I almost can't believe how good of condition it was in for $7. I always drool over the skirts my Instagram friends wear from Pinup Girl and Unique Vintage, but I can't justify spending that kind of money right now. I'm lucky to be able to find some stellar alternatives in second hand stores, but I have to admit, I also just like knowing that I have the ability to recreate similar looks for so cheap. It's just one of my many talents.
This weekend was so wonderful that I'm having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that it's over. My brother Lucas and I left for Oceanside on Friday afternoon to meet our parents for the night. My parents are cyclists and rode a 50 mile bike ride on Saturday, and Lucas and I were lucky enough to join them at the beach. We cheered them on, grabbed some pierogis, and then visited two breweries in the area. It was some really wonderful sibling time, and it was great to learn from Lucas' beer expertise. After such a nonstop couple of days, Jon and I just had an extremely lazy Sunday. I really just wish every day was a lazy Sunday.
