Today we are going to go way back to Christmas- which already seems so long ago! We did a Secret Santa gift exchange amongst Flock Together and I got the sweetest package from Dus! She loaded it up with some good finds- 3 skirts and a pair of blue cords, all wrapped in a cloth bag. I failed at taking a picture of all of them, but they will make their appearances here in time.

This bow print skirt was one of the gifts and it’s absolutely perfect! I love the fit and will always love a good novelty print. Since Dus and I live about a mile apart, she had her mom drop off the package to make it more of a surprise- and it worked because I was so confused as to who was bringing me a package :)

I have mentioned before how much I have loved being a part of Flock Together the past few months and this was another reason it is so fun. Thanks for the great gifts, Dus!! You should pop on over to Katie’s blog to see how she wore the vintage blouse I gave her, you will fall in love with her amazing, nostalgic style!

  10. Would you just get out of here with that pink and yellow combo!!?! I am so madly in love with this look. Those colours are to die for and then add in those ridiculously amazing shoes and I’m swooning all over the damn place.

    As always, you are the cutest little lady on the interwebs.
