Extra, Extra!

Shirt: The Limited, thrifted, $1 // Sweater vest: ?? // Pants: Vintage, thrifted, $4 // Necklace: Vintage, $13 // Shoes: Payless

This is what I wore to work yesterday. I couldn't decide if I looked more like a newspaper boy of yore or a stuffy old professor. No matter, they're equally dorky. It may not be obvious based on my recent fashion history, but I'm a longtime enthusiast of the sweater vest. So very geek chic.

Dress (worn as shirt): H&M, $28 // Jeans: Guess via TJMaxx, $28 // Cardigan: Vintage, thrifted, $4 // Scarf: Gift // Boots: Payless, $22

I wore this comfy, casual outfit for running errands today.
