When I was out shopping for the store last week I ran across this pair of high waisted 60's vintage leisure shorts. Then another pair, then another. I think I ended up with a pair in nearly every color of the rainbow and then some. I love running across finds that like where it's pretty obvious one little old lady was cleaning out her closet. I picked a couple of pairs for myself and the rest will be going up for sale in the store. I sewed these smaller to fit me so there's actually a nice variety of sizes available.

That umbrella is so pretty too.

Gorgeous!!!!
I love both the shorts and the top, but the top makes me really fall in love with it.

Gorgeous pictures!

These pictures make me feel very emotional, firstly because I want to get out of the city and wander along country roads and lie in paddocks, secondly because I can't wait for summer (all this yearning for autumn is SO foreign to me right now!) and thirdly (as an aside), those shorts are simply gorgeous.

luuurve the mint green color!

those shorts are quite possibly the "pair of the summer" in my books...
i have a somewhat similar pair that i TRY not to wear every single day, but they're light blue, and not nearly as fantastic as those.

i wasn't going to go thrifting today, but this might have changed my mind...

great vintage ensemble! The lace top is so flirty and light, and it goes really well with the shorts. looking good, as always!

Oh, and the print on that umbrella is all kinds of amazing.
