Simple Summer Wool

First of all thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful comments on my last post! It makes me incredibly happy that you guys like the new photo. I think I even teared up a little. 

I've been meaning to post an outfit with this skirt FOREVER. Actually, I wanted to post it when it was cold out because it's a wool skirt, but I never got around to it. Still, I'm not one of those people that cares if what I'm wearing is appropriate for the season, so here you have my half summer half winter outfit. Even a skirt made of wool is cooler than jeans in the summer (which is what I normally wear)!

My outfit-photo-taking-buddy decided to stay around Jackson indefinitely, so it looks like we'll still be getting together for pictures pretty often! It's so much easier to take each other's photos than to try and set up a tripod. I'm just so thrilled that she is hanging around since she's one of my favorite people in Jackson (I know you're reading this, go ahead and cry).

Anyway, since she lives near downtown, I decided we should do some pictures near the farmer's market! This is on the back side of it so people couldn't stare at us. I haven't quite worked up to the "I'm ok with people staring and me and wondering what the crap I'm doing" stage yet. Maybe soon! This building has the coolest lights, so I just had to include them.

top- Express (old)
skirt- vintage
shoes- Wanted
necklace- Target

As I mentioned before, the skirt is wool, but I can't resist wearing it because I love the color so much. I picked it up last year at the Nashville flea market in Honeybean run by Kaelah. I was taking a risk since I wasn't able to try it on, but it fits just fine! It actually has a little bit of elastic on both sides so it fits a nice range of sizes. I know sometimes I have crazy things in my outfit posts, but this is kind of how I dress on the daily. Just a simple top, bottom and one piece of jewelry. I still don't feel boring though. Sometimes I think less is more.

Speaking of my clothes, I have 15ish items that either no longer fit me or I just don't wear anymore that I would like to sell. I gave a lot of stuff away, but these are things that are still in great condition and are good brands. I have several Express jeans/pants, a couple of Express tops, an Express suit, and more. Would any of you be interested in buying stuff if I posted them on here? I've seen bloggers do that, but I wasn't sure if you guys would be interested. Just thought I'd check! If so, I'll plan to post some stuff next week! I've already taken pictures :)

Wool in the summer can be fun! Much better than jeans if it's warm out. Very cute color and I'm glad it fit. I hate not being able to try stuff on.
