A Whole New Era


This what I wore while running errands and completing my project from yesterday. I had a few people stop me and tell me they remembered their mom rocking something very similar back in the day. I didn't dare ask if it was good or bad, I guess it depends on how fondly you look back on your mom during that time. And that is WAY more information than I need from my fellow Goodwill shoppers.

Also, why don't I take more pictures in our backyard?

vintage scarf, bangle, and sandals - thrifted
F21 shirt and shorts (why is that so embarrassing?)

I'm not embarrassed by F21! If it fits and feels good, go for it! I think this is a fun and comfy casual outfit! I like it!

LOVE that shirt - I have been looking for similar for ages, will check that out - and you can really rock a headscarf (I look like my Dad in a headscarf, sadly)

I kind of have the same thing -- always embarrassed if I wear something from Forever 21 or one of the cheap stores. I don't know why. I blame the media.

I heart this 70s, hippie-boho look. I'm gonna be rocking something similar all summer long.

I love those shorts! I hear you, I hate shopping at F21 as well but they have some cute stuff for the cheap. BUT there customer service/return policy and people working there are just plain awful.

Really cute! Love how you've wrapped your hair!

I love that wrap in your hair and those floral shorts! I could totally see my mom rocking this back in the day, though our hair is much too big for a wrap most of the time. :-( I would take it as a compliment!

You look amazing. I love, love, love the headscarf. I'd rock a headscarf with a quickness if my head weren't so damned pointy.

LOVE this look! The head scarf is fabulous.

Seriously, your backyard is so pretty! As is your vintage look. =) You look like a pretty hippie. It looks like you could be sitting on a blanket in a field of flowers smoking a joint in that outfit. ;)

Nothing embarassing about H&M or I would be embarrased half of my days.. and i adore the look. I don't think I have seen anyone rock a scarf that way in a long time.... may I use your picture on a post as inspiration ?

Claire said...
