Who doesn't love finding a real gem when it comes to clothing? That's how I felt when I found this blue thrifted skirt a few months ago. I'm pairing it with a tunic top that you first saw here.
The fabric of the skirt is so gorgeous! You can see the embroidered designs that add to the richness of the skirt. Not bad for $3.75!
The skirt has a scarf hemline (uneven) which matches well with the hemline of the tunic. I added some scarf love (and more blue) with a scarf belt that defines my waist.
But there's more to this gem of a story. Notice the ring I'm wearing? It's a blue Sapphire.
And.....I actually found this sapphire stone.....when I was rock hunting many years ago! So, it truly is a real gem of a find!! In my next post, I'll tell you the story of my rock hounding adventures, how I found the stone and how it came to be the ring on my finger.
A girl's gotta have some bling in her life, right?! Make sure you come back next time, to hear the story of my blue sapphire....
Interested in finding a similar look?
Tunic Top: Studio Gem/Cracker Barrel Somewhat Similar
Skirt (thrifted): Coldwater Creek Somewhat Similar
Shoes: Madden Girl Same in tan
Scarf: Women's Designer Scarves by Nicole (Found mine at A.C. Moore Crafts Store)
Until Next Time,
Today I am linking up with Tania on Wednesday’s Wardrobe.
Wow! You must be really lucky to have found that skirt AND that stone. You need to go buy a lottery ticket. Haha Thanks for joining me on my first link-up.

Love the pretty lines of the skirt! You find the best stuff!!!
Hi Tania: I was really lucky to find the stone and the skirt was a great find, as well. Lottery tickets? I'll bet I wouldn't win on that one!!
Thanks, Julie. The skirt is really pretty. I've been lucky to find some good things while thrifting.
What a great look! I love anything with pearls!
I love that skirt! That was a real find. The fabric and hemline really make it special. I like how feminine it is with the tunic. Looking forward to hearing about the stone. And how you knew what it was when you found it!
Thanks,Nina. I love pearls, too!
