Picnic Anyone?

I am absolutely in love with this skirt.  I got it from a local flea market, and the designer of the skirt assured me that this skirt was "One Size Fits All".  After my ultra thin friend, Tameelah tried on one of the skirts, and looked absolutely gorgeous in it, admittedly, I was a bit hesitant.  But I finally tried it on, and I loved it, and the fit!  I almost missed out on this beauty because I was neglecting my number one rule: "Try everything on." You never know if you don't try it on.  I will definitely be going back and purchasing more of these skirts, in different colors and prints. I, of course, have to satisfy my need for African prints.

I know that this skirt is a standout on its own, but to subdue its beauty, and to make it a little less casual, if you will, I paired it with this red gingham shirt I purchased from Old Navy a couple of months ago.  Now, I am not the biggest Old Navy shopper, but every year, they have at least one thing that I fall in love with.  This shirt is that item. I purchased it in 5 different colors!  I know, I know.  I have it in yellow, blue, blue/pink combo, and a light chambray also.  It is the perfect summer shirt as it is an ultra thin, almost tissue-thin cotton and a great layering piece.  The pure Americana of red gingham, paired with this African printed skirt, was just the juxtaposition I was looking for.  And it reflects the duality that exists within me.

Shirt: Old Navy; Skirt: Local designer at flea market

Who doesn't love an adjustable strap that you can tie in the back?
