white shirt, maxi skirt

Blouse: LL Bean, Belt: Charlotte Russe, Vintage Skirt (originally my Grandmother’s): Nelly de Grab, Felmini Boots, Gifted Bangle 

This vintage Nelly de Garb maxi skirt is another piece from my grandmother’s amazing collection. The print is what drew me in, it reminded me of a fabric you might see at a B&B in the French countryside.  I took a cue from Carolina Herrera and kept my top half crisp and classic in a white blouse and broke things up with a thick belt. I love this sunny skirt and I can’t wait to style it again and again.

What pieces are you looking forward to remixing?

    • I couldn’t believe the pieces she had, I am keeping nearly a dozen pieces for myself Meredith, but will be selling off some of the other pieces soon.

  6. OMGosh your grandmother must be one stylish lady! This skirt is incredible Cait!

    • It’s so funny Robin, I only remember my grandmother in Talbot’s pantsuits, so when I was able to go through her amazing collection of vintage I got to see a whole other side of her. She had an amazing floral jumpsuit from the 70’s that is out of this world. I can’t imagine her wearing it but I love that she did!

  7. Funny . . .I don’t ever remember Gram wearing a dress or skirt. Especially nothing that had that much color. XOXO

    • I don’t remember her in anything but cute sweaters and Talbot’s either Aleisha but she had some wild pieces in her closet including some crazy 60s/70s jumpsuits and dresses.

  8. Your granny must be one stylisch woman 🙂 I love this vintage skirt, it has a perfect sixties pattern! x

    • Growing up I remember my grandmother in pantsuits and cute sweaters but when I actually got to go through her clothes I got to see a whole new side of her. She had a great eye for prints, just wait till you see what I’ve got to unpack for the summer!
