Even though I am a vintage gal at heart and try my hardest to "dress the part," some days, I just feel like changing it up and wearing something that isn't exactly vintage. In the past I have written about some of a woes of being a vintage loving girl in a modern world. Whether its the weather or the fast pace of our modern world, it can be hard to make the effort to put together that vintage look every day. And beyond that, I find myself still wanting to dress "with the times," with my own vintage perspective. So, somedays, I dress like this. The only thing in my outfit that is vintage is my skirt, which is late 70s. I fell in love with it a few months ago while on a thrifting trip and really love the look I finally came up with for it.
I am also really smitten with my "new" yellow flats. I've been looking for a pair for a while now. And, while they are not exactly vintage either, (they are Liz Claibornes from probably the late 80s-early 90s, I'm thinking more 90s), they really want to be! When I saw them at the thrift, they just screamed 60s mod to me. I've been getting a ton of wear out of them since; totally worth the $4.00.
