Remember, you're the one Who can fill the world with sunshine

I've been watching Once Upon a Time, and its directly influencing my outfits lately. This green vest was my favorite item of the swap because it reminds me of something Snow White may have worn while thieving in the forest. The unseasonably warm weather made it possible to break out my shorts which kind of pushed the outfit into lederhosen territory, but that's ok! I borrowed my mom's beautiful pin with the bell from Cortina in the Italian Alps, I added the red bird brooch too for contrast on the green. Its going to be hard to part with the vest because it is something I would buy for myself in a heartbeat and wear once a week.
