Cozy, casual cool (or #12)

Shirt: Leslie Fay, thrifted, vintage;
Vest: Brittany, thrifted, vintage;
Jeans: LOFT;
Moccasins: Minnetonka, gift;
Belt: BR, from Marilou.

Wanted to go with something pretty comfortable on Saturday morning, so I styled up this outfit pretty quickly to run some errands. I might do a similar repeat of this for Thanksgiving because I think it was pulled together, yet cozy and approachable. I included this top for the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge as a way of  trying to get myself to style it. It's a tricky shirt reminiscent of the 1980s -- the only way I can describe it is that it wants to be ladylike with the florals, but then it wants to be a pirate on the high seas with its ruffly sleeves. I tempered its personality confusion by wearing a vest over it.

I'm still taking submissions for my Reader Showcase until 5:00pm est. So totally impressed with the submissions so far -- everyone's got a wonderful story to share about their favorite photo. If you're interested, holla at me!

  10. Loving the chunky sweater! Can't wait to see all of the pictures. My internet was out all weekend or I would have submitted one! :)

  11. The chunky cableknit on your sweater contrasts so nicely with the flutter sleeves on your blouse. And I think your wider-leg jeans are a perfect fit with these outfit!

  12. i love this vest/blouse/belt combo! i may attempt to do something similar...i'll link to you when i use you for inspiration!!

  13. This outfit is super cute! And it seems different than your usual style! I love the layering and that sweater vest is fabulous! :)
