"Its a nice day to start again..."





 Vintage sweater, Target beanie, F21 ring, Gap jeans

I've had my eye on this sweater for years, and its a sweater my dad wore "back in the day".  I'm not even sure I should consider 80s vintage, but after seeing neutral chunky knits everywhere, I decided it was time to sneak it out of my dad's closet and show this baby the new decade!

I love the colors in this, it made my Monday a little brighter--despite the few stares I recieved on campus. I can't believe my dad actually wore this, but then again he was also a fan of  Culture Club & Guns N' Roses, while mom loved Madonna & Cyndi Lauper. Instead of listening to Disney songs that most people my age adored, I was jamming to 80s hair bands and I'm so thankful for that. 

So word of advice to all you clothing lovers out there: Save those funky pieces to pass down to your kids! 

Just wanted to share some of my all time favorite tunes of the 80s: 
1. "Sweet Child O' Mine"- Guns N' Roses 
2. "Pour Some Sugar on Me"- Def Leppard
3. "Fight For Your Right"-Beastie Boys
4. "Take On Me"- A-Ha
5. "Tainted Love"- Soft Cell
6. "Love Shack"- B-52s
7. "Whip It"-Devo
8. "Dancing with Myself"-Billy Idol/Generation X
9. "Karma Chameleon"-Culture Club
10. "White Wedding"-Billy Idol

....Oh I could go on but I'm getting carried away!

Haha that's a nice sweater. I love borrowing things from my parents' closets. Hmmm while every kid watched Disney movies, I watched scary movies. Let's just say I was informed on who Freddy Krueger was before I was able to write. xoxo Kennyy

That jumper is so cool. You're so lucky to get hand me downs like that! I love how you've styled it with that hat - it looks so cute. The colours are lovely. I'm a massive fan of '80s music so I loved this post (: Nice song choices sweet. Have a lovely week.
