new loves and old friends: coffee spoons

forget measuring life in coffee spoons, i think i could measure my life by my shopping sprees . 2001 was the year of the express v-neck t-shirt (i bought one in practically every color). then there was the year (or two) of target long and lean tanks (still own about a million of them – they are perfect for layering). black dress pants, check; short flowy skirts, check. when i like an item of clothing, i look for it in every color. seriously, i go a little crazy, it's a titch pathetic.

my newest craze is vintage tees. and not even vintage; as long as they are soft and the sleeve hits me in just the right spot, we're on. the fact that i can get them at thrift stores for under $1 doesn't hurt either. i have found a few that i love (see here), and surprisingly, i have told myself that i can stop shopping for them now. after all, i don't need 30 t-shirts, five will do!

i found this one at a garage sale last weekend. of course, it's a minnesota (zoo) tee, so i love it...because i love all things minnesota (another shopping obsession). i love tees paired with skirts. i love the casual, yet chic feel to it. to see awesome examples, check out kimi at all the fuss. she rocks vintage tees and skirts...love it! i have this skirt that i normally wear as a dress...but today i decided to fold it over a few times and wear it as a shorter skirt. how original huh? a skirt worn as a skirt! avant garde!

  2. I love how brave you are with fashion. I would never have thought to pair the vintage tee with anything other than jeans. Yet somehow, you pull off this look flawlessly, nice job!

  9. I love these colors! Way to be bold and do two powerful shades right next to each other. Excellent thrifting finds :)

  10. Your skirt is darling! The red is so rich! And that shirt is so cute! I like MN Zoo tees-- and toys-- but they're expensive (for me) haha The design on this one in particular is so nice, one wouldn't think it's from the zoo at all! :)

  13. Um, I love this outfit down to your cute blue toes! And I want that t-shirt. Seriously. I may just stuff it in your new pink suitcase (maybe squeeze Dezzie in, too) and be on my happy thrifting way!
