My New-to-me (Reconstructed!) Vintage Skirt

I wore this yesterday... probably a bad choice. It was around ninety degrees outside, as well as incredibly humid. I should have opted for a simple sundress, but I was so excited about this skirt. My aunt had some vintage clothing she offered to alter/reconstruct for me since she's getting back into sewing, and I fell in love with this patterned fabric! I think it was originally a dress, but now it's a mini floral skirt!

These photos were taken at a state park near my house. I've had a few shoots here before... one back in February, and in the other during October, I believe. However, my sister doesn't really understand my camera or how to focus anything, and my lens kept fogging up due to humidity... thus photos not as sharp as they could be. I thank my sister for putting up with me, though!

Also, I've discovered my hair can go into a ponytail. It's been years, really. Granted, my bangs still fall out, but I don't have to use a million bobby pins to keep my little hairs up at the bottom.

And I just realized all of these photos include the slightly-bend-sideways-leg pose. It's my go-to pose, even though I'm not even sure it's the most flattering/it makes me look insecure.

...except this photo:
