Va-Va Vintage

Vintage finds make up for almost the entirety of my outfit for today. There is something cool and relaxed about vintage I find, perhaps it comes in the understanding of the piece(s) of clothing being a gift from someone else to you, whether it be direct giving or through finding such an item. I have a mix of both; my Dad's old 100% cashmere sweater that I've washed and worn so many times it's shrunk down to my size. As well my belt and my shoes are vintage as well. I have had these oxford lace up for about 5 years, and have loved them every minute of those 5 years. Enjoying my first real week of Spring, I was so thrilled to get outside and have the sun warm on my face. There's nothing like coming from parkas to without-a-jacket weather. And for my causal Sunday look, I chose to go causal, chic and comfy. Enjoy!

STRIPES. They are a very complicated, trouble-making pattern in fashion. Sometimes 'they' tell you never ever ever wear stripes, especially if you are not a size 00, but then the fashion world goes ahead and makes you fall in love with the nautical look. So I say, forget the rules! It's more fun breaking them than following anyway. So I fell in love with this top the instant I saw it. Not only is it hot pink (I can't get enough of neons), it's also nautical inspired. With it's stripes, thick cotton, and causal loose fit, I had to get it. Paired with of course my favourite pants to give it some edge, and my new super cute Betty Boop vintage over-sozed watch I love this trying to encourage the spring weather outfit. I wore this out to the bar for a night of lollies, drinks and of course a huge plate of french fries (I can not go to the bar without ordering a plate - it's a curse I swear). Anyway, here's my first official post of a spring outfit, and I can not wait to post more! Spring, get here already please! Enjoy and remember bring your lolli to the bar!
