April Showers Bring May Flowers

Ive been wearing this all weekend. Its actually a skirt and I just pulled it up and belted it.

Went to the beach with some friends yesterday and got this henna tattoo. I was racked with so much indecision as to which design I wanted that I just told the guy to give me a bird, any bird. This is what he came up with. Thanks Dennis on Venice!

Thrifted floral skirt, vintage red leather belt, Rackk and Ruin crystal necklace.

I always have issues wearing skirts as tubes because the back always extends longer than the front? Not sure if I put it across correctly. But you pulled it off nicely. (:

I often wear long skirts as dresses - I have a beautiful silk one that moves beautifully in the wind...
Floral prints are always very pretty and springlike!

This dress (skirt) has the perfect vintage feeling floral print. I've been looking for something just like it. I feel like its a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the grungy 90's revival florals I've been seeing all over the place lately.
