Worn Polka dotted blouse: vintage, gift from Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy, jumper: Target, black tights: Spanx, Mary Janes: Sofft, headband: Nordstorm, sterling bead bracelet: Tiffany, handbag: Coach Kristin.
Details These photos are from last week and I’ll never forget making copies that day when a fellow teacher complimented my outfit saying I looked like a teacher from the sixties. For this gal it doesn’t get any better than that. Well, only the time that another teacher recently told me I reminded her of That Girl! Sweet.
This outfit came together around this lovely little vintage top. The polka dots are such a fun, bright color and I knew the large color would look great tucked into this simple subtle plaid dress. From far away the dress reads as a solid, so it added texture while letting the top take center stage. I saw a model in an old InStyle magazine wearing her long wavy hair in a side pony with a sweet little headband. I think this new style was a great addition to make this look really stand out.
This top came to me in a box from the lovely Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy. She is 1-2-3 brilliant when it comes to mixing patterns, brights, and vintage into everyday style.
