seafoam scallops

Vintage 70s blouse, vintage scarf, Fossil vintage re-issue messenger, F21 shorts, thrifted Keds

So I think I'm hooked on wearing scarves like this, they make me feel like a ninja. I received this scarf two years ago after I wrote a story for the school paper about the owner of The Vintage Scarf who sells quality scarves in an assortment of colors. I love the colors on it and the print has a neat explosion of colors--which I LOVE! I found this blouse at a local thrift store for a few dollars, the color stole my heart and the detail on the collar and pocket were just too cute. I just have to roll up the sleeves because they're way too billowy for my taste. I also found these Keds a couple years back at a thrift store for only $5 and they were brand spankin' new! They're so comfortable and perfect for days on the go. 

I also want to take a moment to share some ultimate cheesiness: It means so much to me that some of you are leaving such sweet comments about being inspired by me. I ultimately started this blog with the hope of being able to inspire at least one person that fashion or style doesn't have to be about buying expensive name brands, being super thin/tall, or having tons of money. Having style to me has always been about working with what you have, making things uniquely yours, and feeling confident in your own skin to rock any look you want. So, to share some love for your love I'll be having a giveaway soon so stay tuned folks!

I'm seriously digging your blouse! What's more, it warms my heart (cheese in return for you) that you thrift and find killer deals. I LOVE to thrift and I love to scope out the gems other people find.

Also, did I mention that your blog is adorable? I know I've been by before and expect it many more times!

Love your top! The shape is lovely for a summer day.

 
At April 13, 2011 at 8:20 AM , Blogger Little Lo Hood said...

Aww you are like the sweetest person! You are definitely an inspiration through your stylings and the way you put together different colors, textures and patterns. You are also certainly a role model for any young girls because your outlook on fashion and appearance are really relevant in this world of getting caught up in celebrity, skinniness, and status through labels. I love this outfit and I would definitely wear it! PS: thanks so much for the sweet comment, I should definitely run back and get that kitty picture! :)

Those colors together are beautiful (separately too, obv!) You sure can rock a scarf like that, it looks darling with your hair!
