What I Wore | Vintage With A Country Twist

I have a surprise for y'all today. My other sister, Hanne-col, joined me today for a sisters outfit post. Isn't that exciting?? *grin*

What Hanne-col is wearing: Dress Anthro// Cardigan Kohl's// Belt Claire's// Boots Bass Shoe Outlet 
What I'm wearing: Grey Pleated Skirt ASOS {seen here}// Cream Lace Blouse F21// Pink Cardigan {borrowing from Gabrielle} Old Navy// Belt Target// Brown Boots Target {seen here}// Burgundy Floppy Hat Target// Grey Heart Tights Target
The reason you see us with coats is because of, well, several reasons. One - It was only 20 degrees. Two - There was a bitter cold wind. Three - It was snowing. Four - It was freezing!!! But, I really want a picture of this outfit.

I ordered the skirt last week off of ASOS and it arrived yesterday. I LOVE it!! I can't wait to copy the design and make some more for this summer in a bunch of colors. *smile* The boots & floppy hat I bought yesterday in the clearance section of Target. I've been really wanting these boots since August when they first came out, but in grey. Sadly, they were all out of my size in the grey at the store. So I just went with the brown pair.

Hanne-col has made brief appearances before on BF. And since her outfit kinda had the same theme/style has mine I begged her to join me. As you can see, she agreed. *grin*


  1. I love your skirt! I've seen so many of them around lately.. I am curious how that style would look on me!! :)

  2. these are beautiful and such amazing outfits!!! I love them!!

  3. Hanne-col's outfit is gorgeous! And I love love your skirt and boots.

  4. What fabric would you make the skirt out of if you copied the design? I would really like to know how it goes if you make the skirt with pleated fabric!


  5. Lovely hat and skirt!

    It snowed here too (for the first time)*sigh*. I love snow :)

  6. Aw, hooray sisters! Your outfits are both cute!

    Your new skirt is charming, Ashley! I would LOVE to hear more about how you go about copying it. I've been seeing accordion-pleated skirts everywhere, and it drives me nuts, because I can't figure out how to recreate one. It seems like they all just have the pleats pressed into the fabric, but not tacked down! Won't all the pleats just fall out in the wash? Are the pleats sort of semi-permanent, since they're put into a synthetic fabric? Gaah. Inquiring minds must know!

  7. @The Boyer Family I'm not sure yet. Once I figure it out, I'll let y'all know.

  8. @Rachel W. Yes, the pleats are not tacked down. They are pressed into the fabric. I'm not sure how to go about copying the design yet. But I'll be sure to share my ideas once I've had time to study the skirt & think through the process of making one. *grin*

  9. @Ashley: How interesting! It would be great to see whatever you come up with! I've been wanting to try this for a long time myself. :)

  10. How fun to see your sister! :) And.. you two look like you're freezing! ;) haha!

    Your outfits are super cute!! Thanks for sharing. Definitely has a cute western flare. :)

  11. This is favorite outfit ever on your blog and I have been following for over a year. Lovely!!!

  12. aww cute :)

    how do you pronounce your sister's name? I read it like hann nicole. Is that way off? lol

  13. oh wow they are both very pretty :-)

  14. I like both of your outfits! I have the same cardigan as Hanne-col, just in a different color. I really like your skirt and belted cardigan look.

  15. @Tabitha congratulations I think you are the first person to pronounce it properly without hearing it. After going it over and over again, it is pronounced like hann nicole.

  16. Midi skirts are HIGH on my list. I love them and I just recently bought several vintage midi skirts.

    So glad you joined in this time, Hanne-col!

  18. I love Hanne-col's outfit and I have the cardigan, only I think it's a dark blue mixed with green!
