(Dotti blouse, thrifted skirt, Target hat, Miss Shop boots) 

I wore this outfit last weekend to church and morning tea. The weather has been absolutely lovely lately so I've been making the most of the sunshine by wearing this hat. It's got pretty laser cut patterns around the edge that filter the sun through and make my shadow on the side-walk look interesting. I've always wanted an interesting shadow, haha!
Anyway, I couldn't wait to to tell you about this purple skirt. It was a lucky op-shop find a few weeks ago and I've worn it over and over again since. It was on the clearance rack in the Salvation Army for only three dollars! I was SO proud because usually I have rotten luck when it comes to op-shopping and only come out with something ferrell that I talked myself into buying. Woohoo!
Anyway, enough of my silly rants; I hope you enjoy the rest of your week ♥
