Today is a very special day--not only is it Breton Stripe Day, but it is also Christopher's 30th birthday. I have to keep this post short, because I teach in 4 minutes (acks! I'm running behind today), given that we spent our morning making a huge birthday breakfast and opening presents. Happy birthday, Christopher! I adore you and it's a joy to celebrate your life with you today. And happy Breton Stripe Day to everyone else :)

Academichic said...

I love this look! I think I might have thrifted a similar skirt (only mine is mint green). I'm curious, did you need to hem yours? I'm a little nervous to tackle this hem job because of the lining, but excited to use my new sewing machine! If you did hem yours, any tips you have would be appreciated. A.

Nicole said...

Just found your blog a couple of days ago and though I'd say that love your style!!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

happy birthday to your love!

Mandy said...

Very cute outfit! I really love the red skirt. I'm trying to find more fun skirts to incorporate into my work wardrobe, and I am definitely using you for some inspiration :)

Love your outfit! Happy birthday to Christopher!
I would love to know where you got your puffy coat. You look so cozy!

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

hi A.! i ended up not hemming this skirt, but i have hemmed another wool vintage skirt--i hemmed the lining first (with my sewing machine) and the wool next, using a hidden stitch (not sure what it's called). if i ever hem this one, i think i'll take it to a tailor because these skirts are so beautiful i don't trust myself to hem them myself!
and my puffy coat is from j. crew, to those who asked :)

Happy Birthday to Christopher!

And I sadly totally missed the memo about BSD - is this what I get for resisting Twitter? Ah well, I was dressed for airport security so my outfit was a bit of a dud anyway. Next time, stripes!
