Boho Style Skirt and Weekend Happenings

Boho Style

I hope you are having an awesome first weekend of Spring! I'm popping by to share a thrifted boho skirt that brings some "spring pink" color and also sharing some weekend highlights. Let me know how your weekend is going at the end of the post, OK?

I've been hunting for a feminine style, swishy skirt to wear and I found this pretty one at Goodwill a couple weekends ago. I like the brown, creme and pink tones of the skirt and the little pink designs have sparkly adornments on them to give a little extra "oomph" to the look. I figure this skirt can easily go through all seasons just fine. I didn't start out to specifically choose a boho style skirt, but I do like this particular one.

It's very lightweight and comfortable to wear. I did a little pattern mixing with the checked blouse under the sweater against the paisley print of the skirt. I think it works. 

I have priced these boho style skirts online for around $38, so I figured the $4 price tag at Goodwill was a real bargain! What do you think?

In other news, it has been an interesting and unique Saturday for the Mr. and I.  We stopped by our local university to cheer on the Robotic Teams that are competing. This was a new experience for us and it was enjoyable. Here, we are standing next to the "Macon County Bot's" robot. One of the Mr.'s friends is a mentor for the group. It was fun to see high school students getting enthusiastic about robot science! We are standing in the area known as the robot "pit" and therefore we had to wear safety glasses. 

Here, our friend explains the robot's inner workings to the Mr. 

After lunch, I dropped off the Mr. at a trail and I went to walk at the N.C. Arboretum. Some of the flowers are just beginning to get blooms so there weren't many flowers to snap photo of. Instead, I took pics of the some of the architectural displays like this one at the entrance to the educational building. 

I tried to get artistic with an interesting viewpoint. These pics were taken with my phone camera by the way. 

I like the mountains and wheat in this metal sculpture.

Like the butterfly on this metal archway that covers the path up to the educational building.

Buds just coming out on what I believe is a tulip tree. (Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not a tree expert!)

Such a unique metal sculpture in this garden area! 

And this is how Debbie has spent the weekend so far. How about you? How are you spending this first weekend of Spring? Hope you will leave a comment and let me know. Whatever you are doing, make sure to enjoy!

Until Next Time,

What a good spring look, both cozy and springy at the same time! Sounds like a fun day, and your walk at the arboretum must have been so enjoyable! I enjoyed seeing pictures as I always do. You live in such a pretty area! I am hoping to get back to see my grandson in Charlotte in April. It will definitely be warmer than here in Ohio, and I'm looking forward to that! Quiet weekend for me...lots of paperwork, but I did go to lunch with my sister for her birthday and that was a truly fun time! We are trying to go for coffee or lunch more often since I'm not working. It feels like a real luxury to be able to do that!

It's so cold here on Long Island this first weekend of spring! Yesterday I bundled up against the chill and wind to run errands...and today I'm staying indoors until the afternoon when it looks like it might be warmed up enough to do a little photoshoot and get some fresh air.

I love your pink boho skirt, very fun, and a great thrifted find for only $4! I don't find many things I like at the thrifts in my size these days, but I used to have almost exclusively thrifted clothes in my wardrobe!

Good for you for thinking of trying a new perspective when taking your photos!

Have a good rest of the weekend, there's not much left!

Debbie, I enjoyed seeing your beautiful new thrifted skirt as well as your weekend activities. How fun it must of been to view the robots. I realized when I looked at your pictures that I rarely pay attention to the sculpture at the Arboretum, but it is a perfect time to do that before all the blooms take center stage. Your pictures of the sculptures offer unique perspectives.
