day sixteen: feeling vintage

I don't have too much to say, except for the fact that the weather has been really nice lately. The sunshine was beautiful so I ran outside to take a few pictures. I think my attempt at the self-timed images was much better this time, although the background is all blown out from the sun. I actually ended up wearing this outfit with boots instead of heels (a little more practical), but I just loved the lace-on-lace with the skirt and tights. These tights have been sitting in the bottom of my drawer and I've finally resurrected them. They're actually a great accessory piece - I think you'll be seeing a lot more of them soon! Messy hair calls for a great hat, and this is one that I love. I have to say I'm a lucky girl because my mom has the best hat collection in the world. Not to mention scarf collection, boot collection, coat collection... You can see where I get my love of fashion from!

  5. This is by far my favourite outfit from you! Indeed vintage inspired. Love the detailing on every piece. You look so gorgeous! This outfit is incredibly feminine and something I wish I could pull off (I don't dress very girl most of the time).

    The best part of this outfit is definately the tights. I think it makes a huge difference! Love this!

  6. Have I ever told you that I absolutely LOVE your style!? Those shoes are to die for, and the lace on lacey tights is perfection.

    Oh, and THAT HAT!! I LOOOOOVE IT. You look so good, I love hats but I'm too much of a chicken to wear one, your kinda giving me some courage though. :)
