It does not take a sleuth to realize that I am into retro fashion. I love the whimsical and bright styles of the 1960’s. Rather than wear these pieces in the exact fashion one would have 75 years ago, it is so much more fun to mix old-school pieces with more modern pieces to create a collision of style.
Almost none of these pieces are actually vintage, just vintage-inspired. The only vintage piece is my blue scarf, which I picked up at an antique/vintage shop somewhere in Springfield, MO. This top is from Victoria Beckham’s amazingly mod 2017 line from Target. These cigarette style pants (they are high-waisted underneath my top) are several years old from my Forever 21 days. Since I wear these saddle shoes in at least 99.5% of my outfit posts, I no longer feel the need to divulge where they are from anymore.
I decided to bring this outfit up to date with my denim jacket. It meshes well with this outfit because it has the same playful and colorful vibe, due to all the pins/buttons. Yet, it also tones down the in-your-face style of the bright orange and stripes.
One of my favorite details of this outfit is the way the scalloped edge of the tops peaks out below my jacket.
I know wearing tons of pins may be an over-used trend right now, but I say to heck with it. No one should stop wearing a certain style that they like just because it has become popular. Wear what you like and let the trends come and go. Almost all of these pins where given to me by various friends. I love this jacket because it allows me to carry a little piece of a bunch of people who love me with me everywhere that I go.
Spring weather is the absolute best, no contest. I am super excited to be posting tons of colorful and sunny outfits soon, so be on the look out. Thanks for all the positive feedback on my previous post, even though it did not exactly have much (or, anything) to do with fashion. I enjoy writing a lot, so a post like that may sneak its way on here every once in a while. Have a great week, and good luck to all who are studying for or recovering from midterms!
