Strawberry Patch

vintage strawberry skirt

The last post was apple themed and now we are celebrating the strawberry. My favorite thing about summer has to be all of the fruits in season, give me all the berries, watermelons, and peaches.

Whenever I visit my family in Oregon, I try to plan it during the summer because there is no better time to be there. I always make my mom take me to a nearby farm for a flat of mixed berries and that is all I want to eat while I’m there. It’s not as easy to find fresh, local berries in Phoenix, and I definitely never see roadside blackberries like I grew up with.

This vintage skirt was a steal at Buffalo Exchange and it was originally floor length. It was cute as can be, but not my style, so I shortened it up. If you want to see some other examples of me chopping off maxi dresses (and if it won’t make you cringe at me altering vintage…) you can see them here and here.

Are you jumping on board for the fruit print craze? I will be the first in line for new novelty prints!

    That is the most amazing vintage find. Ive always been too noncommittal even with great finds to put in the effort to change the length but maybe I should look into it more.



  5. I am SO jealous you got that skirt! I had thought it was hand painted or something haha. That length is perfect!

    You look cute :) I love how you paired this with the polka dot top. Oregon also has those marion berries that are so good. I’ve never seen them down here.
