1950's Circle Skirt: Vintage Shop.
Sweater, Heels, Hat: Thrifted.

Hello there! ♥
This vintage circle skirt is another super old piece I've kept in my wardrobe like the pink trench coat. I got it for Christmas five years ago from my parents when I was just getting into vintage. It was the second piece of vintage I came to own--the first a beautiful floral 1950's silk wiggle dress. I wore that dress to death throughout the years and it was already so fragile that now it has a lot of rips in it and even if I got them fixed, I don't fit into the dress anymore. So sad. I was surprised that I still fit into this striped vintage number though after so many years. It's such a special piece that I always hope to keep! Here's the first time I wore it--I was such a sassy high schooler.

I've been wanting to take some photos amidst a tree farm and thought, "well why not today!" It turned out to be a blizzarding, but it adds to the beauty of the season! My little sister took these photos and she just absolutely loves to do it-- she never complains about the cold or my pickiness. She is a phenomenal little girl I realize as she gets older and older. We spent the entire day together just snuggling, laughing, playing, and cleaning. Something I don't think we've ever done. Not that we don't spend time together, just never the whole day. We usually bicker or start teasing each other by then. Whether it's because she's getting older or because the heart grows fonder with distance, I'm so thankful for my little lady. She is my best friend! 

With much love, Lauren.
