Getting dressed yesterday morning was a throwback to vintage classics. There was a slight chill in the air which welcomed wool separates. I snagged the skirt at a thrift store several years ago and have always wavered back and forth on wearing it as I felt the length was awkward and the design seemed outdated. It’s a good thing I have a habit for squirreling away good pieces in my closet as midi-skirts made a comeback last year and large chevron never seems to go out of style. The jacket is my Kenneth Cole from this post but I had yet to do a proper post on it – the military details plus ankle boots are the perfect additions to making vintage seem modern.
More vintage details can be found in my ring, permanently borrowed from my mom. The earrings also came from my mom (a favorite past time when I visit is to rummage through her jewelry drawer to see what pieces she is ready to get rid of) and the Dooney and Burke was found at a thriftstore. Combined, vintage, thrifted and modern pieces make for a thoroughly chic get-up. How do you combine pieces from different eras to create looks that stay true to your personal style?
