I adore a long wrap skirt. I wore them the first time, back in the late 60’s and early 70’s, and I still love wearing them. Old hippies never die, we just tie our waists a little looser. While out shopping with Ally and Suzanne in Toronto, we found a whole outdoor rack of these fabulous skirts. It was difficult to buy one and leave the rest behind, but this one wooed me best.
Always room in my closet for a hippie skirt :

There’s no maker’s mark, and it may be a modern skirt with a vintage look and feel. It’s a true wrap, the best kind. The black cotton top is by Nygard, and it has wonderful topstiching below the waist. I like my “basic” tops to have a touch of personality. I found this one (similar) while thrifting with Suzanne, and did a happy dance at the $5 price tag. Gorgeous beaded necklace by Suzanne Carillo, thrifted emerald bracelet (sim), and ankle-strap sandals (sim) finish off my summer outfit.

This is a wonderful skirt and top combo Patti. And all the better for being a great thifting bargain. Your necklace is fab and what a versatile piece at that length. I loved reading about your meet up on Suzanne’s blog – sounds like you had such fun x
OOOO, I love wrap skirts. And the print on that one is gorgeous. Like your pretty new necklace too! You gals must have had so much fun shopping together.
You look beautiful, Patti. The gorgeous greens with the black…stunning. Hippie stylish.
Although it is a long wrap skirt, I think you have lifted this outfit to 2016. It is not really hippie to me (I wore long skirts too in the seventies).
Hreat outfit. Very elegant. Looking good. All items are just excellent. Congratulations on your new necklace and new (vintage) finds.
I commented earlier, but will reiterate, love the skirt on you!
Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday
I used to wear wrap skirts (mid calf) all the time and then I just stopped. And I don’t even know why 🙂 you might have just resuscitated my interest in them, Patti 🙂 and please, do stop by and join my Project Sister Act Link-Up if you have a second? You were one of my pioneer guests so it only makes sense xoxo
Such a cute skirt! Perfect for the season. 🙂
From one old hippy to another – you look absolutely wonderful, I’d steal that skirt off you in a heartbeat. xxx
I’m glad you had some good thrifting luck in Toronto. I like the pattern on the skirt, and you do blend well with the scenery!
Love that you were able to meet up with other bloggers! Isn’t it nice to be part of such a community? I love your “secret agent blogger” comment! Thanks for the smile you put on my face!
What an adorable shade of green – so striking against the black. A wrap skirt is easy to wear and I love how elegant your’s look I feel I need to hand you a cocktail!
Such a cute skirt!

I can see why Patti you loved this skirt. I love the pattern and the green color looks great. Love the flowy style and the necklace is perfect with the look!
have a great week!
Loving that skirt girl! Definitely a wrap skirt lover too 🙂
You chose well Patti…that skirt is beautiful!
You’re looking groovy Patti, to the max.
Beautiful skirt, I love patterns against a black background.
I couldn’t agree more, I do love a great maxi skirt. Love, Kirsten xx
cute & little
Maxi skirts (or maxi dresses worn as maxi skirts, as I linked up today!) for the win! And LOVE what you wrote, “Old hippies never die, we just tie our waists a little looser” LOL! 🙂
I love every piece you are wearing today, especially the skirt and necklace. And YESSS for joining Instagram. =)
I love that you said you did a happy dance—we say that all the time (although it’s usually in reference to food!!)
Great skirt and I love the bracelet too!
thanks so much for hosting!!
Fabulous skirt! Love the pop of color in the skirt and the accessories… Beautiful!
OMG I love this ensemble Patti – following you now at Insta btw looking forward to see you there too!!
Come join this GIVEAWAY I am hosting for yoga/activewear brand AIRABELLA ACTIVE this week at the blog – Happy Monday!
Such a cute skirt! I haven’t worn a wrap skirt in years. I agree, the true wraps are the best. Have a great week.
Beautiful skirt! I’ve been digging out a few of my maxi skirts, even though it’s not really the weather for them here in the UK – one minute sunny, the next raining. I did manage to wear one last week and take some photos for the blog but it’s back to jeans now!
You wear this style wonderfully. Your skirt was a fab find and such a deal! The black is a perfect background for the emerald necklace.
I love wearing long skirts in the summer. The print of yours is gorgeous!

I’m having a bit of a love affair with long skirts at the moment, so this is right up my street. Love the colours on you Patti.
Thank you for hosting.
Sorry, Patti. You can never be a secret agent. You stand out too much to go under cover. Excellent skirt. And those $5 price tags definitely make our hearts beat just a touch faster. AND, that’s $5 Canadian, right? Score. Thanks for the linkup!
Maxi skirts are so great this time of the year. Love the print of your skirt.
Thank you for hosting and hope you are having a fab week!
Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
Suzanne is the best. I love the necklace she made for you.
Loving all of these picks and the one you bought is fabulous! I do love a flowy skirt in the summertime – such a carefree summer look!
You look wonderful, Patti! What a gorgeous skirt! I am a fan of the old patterned long skirts – I must wear one this week! Will be back shortly with my entry for “Visible Monday” – thank you so much for hosting.
Love this pretty skirt, great summer look!! Welcome to IG too, I just followed you along:)
Looking fabulous as always … sounds like you had a great time here in Toronto … and the weather was wonderful for exploring the city ..thank you for hosting.
Aren’t they gorgeous! I love a wrap skirt too. They work really well with the gladiators. Well done on your finds. It looks like you had a fabulous time in Toronto! Thanks so much for hosting (and your lovely comment back – thanks) Have a magnificent week! xx
Lovely skirt, Patti…your trip sounds like it was fun!
Love to see this on you along with the necklace. Nothing makes me happier than seeing people wear the pieces I make for them.
This is a full on Canadian outfit! : )
True hippie chic.
From another old Hippie,great look-love the pattern on the skirt.
Gorgeous outfit and jewelry, Patti. Love the colors.
Wrap skirts are one of my favorite styles and that one is perfect for you! 🙂
I love the look of the two-tiered skirt that you’ve featured, Patti, but unfortunately It’s just not the weather for a lovely hippie skirt here in Blighty at the moment – a soggy wet hem does to a good look make! All your participants look so nice and summery, but I am ‘visible’ in wellington boots!
Gorgeous, Patti, as usual! I love all of the skirts that you linked on here. I have so many old hippie skirts that I never wear! I need to start wearing them again, maybe!
You look SO at home in that skirt; it is really made for you. I agree with Catherine, it is so lovely to see you in the sunshine! Enjoy it! Thank you for hosting xxx
I agree with you, Patti, I love a good wrap skirt. You look great. Black looks good on you.
Hehe “Old hippies never die, we just tie our waists a little looser” – love that, Patti!! This style skirt suits you so well, and it’s so nice to see you outside in your photos, I love seeing all that sunshine!
Thank you for hosting, hope you have a fabulous week 🙂
This looks great on you Patti…and really seems to fit your personality as well as you!
Thanks for the link up!
Great skirt! I love the colors and the print! A long, loose skirt is so great for summer! The top goes perfectly with it! Glad you found some great pieces while shopping with Ally and Suzanne!
Gorgeous colors in that skirt, and I agree, a true wrap skirt never goes out of style!
A fun skirt for hot weather! You look comfortable and chic, perfect combination.
What a beautiful skirt!!!
What a fantastic skirt!! My closet always has room for a long, flowing skirt that is timeless as well!! How beautiful you look; rested and elegant and ready to tackle the week ahead!!
