Tiering Up

Maybe it's the Arkansas in me, but I love a skirt with ruffles, layers, and a petticoat.  I would have walked around all summer in a hoop skirt and lace if I'd been born in the right era.  I don't know how I'd feel about corsets and Arkansas summer heat, though...

This skirt was labeled "rockabilly," but that's just because of the check print.  This skirt screams "modern southern" with a rockabilly guitar riff.  Sorry, Forever 21, you should let me do your labeling.

I may not technically be a teacher anymore, but I still like my teacher paraphernalia, such as this apple locket.

What's a better detail than a giant bow??  Maybe ribbon piping, but it's a tough call.

Now if only this were long enough to wear to work and not just on Saturday afternoons.

Skirt: Forever 21
T-shirt: Target
Locket: Francesca's
Sandals: I don't remember, but they were $11 and I bought them in three colors

I'd say "it's almost Friday yay!" but I have a four hour water safety training on Saturday.  It will be my second working Saturday this month, (I know, whine more), but working Saturdays makes the weekend feel non-existant.  Can't stay up late Friday, don't get a full Saturday, and Sunday is just sort of a buffer day between a free day and Monday, (except for church - but you still have to wake up early for that).  I better be a water safety expert come Saturday night!

Ahh! That skirt is ADORABLE. Oh man. It kind of makes me think of little Bo Peep.

Good luck with the training on Saturday! Let me know if you still want to go swimming Sunday afternoon or anything.
