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!
