Two Very Different Spring Looks

Look 1:
Top: Doen (here) // Overalls: vintage via Encourage Vintage (here, I really wish they fit) // Shoes: Paloma Wool (IN RAFFIA HERE. And someone stop me from getting these) // Necklace: InfinEight (here)

Look 2:
Blouse: Madewell (here) // Belt: Madewell (here) // Corduroys: vintage (check Etsy, in particular someone really needs these) // Necklace: InfinEight (here)

My wardrobe is always in transition these days. Since I've had a "do-over" of sorts and it's had me thinking more about what I want in my closet. Each season brings about a whole new challenge as I unpack stored items from last year to find 90% of it doesn't fit.

There's always been thrifted/vintage/secondhand clothing in my wardrobe but that can be tough when you need things RIGHT NOW. And I realized I have an opportunity. An opportunity to fill my wardrobe with pieces that feel good. So I've been trying to fill in the holes with slow-er fashion, handmade pieces, small businesses, you get the idea. And buying retail only when I'm sure that I'm going to wear the shit out of it. I mean, Madewell seems to know exactly what I want but I don't have to buy all of it, you know?

So the timing was right when InfinEight jewelry reached out to me to see if I wanted to do a collaboration. You guys know I rarely say yes to collaborations but we've followed each other on Instagram for a long time so our styles mesh but it's more than that. I'm excited to wear and showcase something handmade by a small business owner. Where the obvious creativity (she's inspired by organic and geometric forms) sparks creativity in me as well. I even planned and shot "real" photos for this and it felt so good.

If you feel inspired too you can visit InfinEight and use the code "LASTFRONTIER" in the next 48 hours for free shipping! And then maybe you can mosey over to my Etsy shop, Last Frontier Vintage for some awesome things to pair with your new jewelry. You know you want to. ;)
