Retro Head-to-Toe

I typically discourage wearing looks that are completely vintage-inspired to avoid looking hokey or costume-like, but the mood struck me on this sunny afternoon to do just that. Sporting my high-waist shorts, button-up with popped collar, neck scarf and seersucker espadrilles, I channeled the style of Mad Men's Helen Bishop (the outcast divorcee who often wears pants).

Shirt: Wildman Vintage
Shorts: Vintage, thrifted
Belt: Vintage, thrifted
Scarf: Vintage, from my grandmother
Shoes: Payless

I have the same feeling towards vintage. Love it in doses and always updated.
This outfit is awesome, though. Not costumey in the least! Love it!

Not at all costumey! Very cute.
