I hate to admit it but it is starting to feel like fall, with cooler nights and shorter days. It's not fall that I don't like it's winter. I mean I live in Minnesota, enough said. So it's already day seven of my little project. So here goes with another idea for an age appropriate outfit, worn with denim jeans. Again please don't copy these looks, but take inspiration from them and develop your own style from what you see and learn here.
I am not afraid to wear color, it keeps me sane actually, so this orange red sweater (Tippi by J. Crew) which is a recent "hot" fashion color is just what the doctor ordered for me. Paired with my Levi's Trucker vest, adorned with vintage cameo pins. Depending on what I want to wear for jewelry I might change the pins for another collection of them, or have nothing at all if I am wearing a bold necklace. Do not over accessorize. The belt is a antiqued gold from Paris that I have had forever, the jeans are Matchstick by J. Crew. I would do the bold bigger fold up cuff on the bottom of the jeans for this look.
Brown bag and black biker boots. Perfection.
Brown bag and boots works too.
Brown bag and Italian boots make it a bit more dressy but still very casual.
I am so excited about my 30days of denim blogging that I have decided I am going to start it this coming Monday. The clothes are from my closet but I have noticed that stores already have their fall lines in so to help you with ideas for shopping I am doing this sooner.
These blogs will have lots and lots of ideas and information as to how and why the outfits and accessories work together. Stay tune for this coming Monday, August 13th to begin the journey.
No matter what your age Vintage is a always a great find. For one thing it's one of a kind piece of clothing, that no one else has, so you can always have a unique outfit. Here are things that you should know though about buying and owning Vintage. First remember it's not so precious that is can't be altered to fir or be the right hem length. Unless your young a head to toe look of vintage is too much. Always pair your vintage with new, fresh items to keep the look current so you do not look like a museum piece. Shoes, purses, ties and cuff links are really easy as they are just an accessory.
