Sixties Mix-Up

Jacket/Shirt: Top half of a vintage suit via Wildman Vintage, $8 // Skirt: Old Navy, thrifted, $2 // Boots: Vintage Anne Klein via Wildman Vintage, $15 // Earrings: Target, $5

Another cool day gave me the opportunity to don this warm (but cheery) vintage suit jacket and my favorite boots. I felt like a first lady on top and a go-go girl on bottom!

i love this--it's perfect for a cold spring day with the color of the jacket. it's been awkwardly freezing in the morning and hot in the midday in the midwest, and i've been totally stumped for what to wear.
so i am extra impressed that you look so lovely.

So cute. I love the minty green color of your jacket!

Love the jacket! Such a fresh take on cool weather clothing. That color is so flattering on you. Weather here can't decide if it wants to be cold or hot... i can't say that i like either extreme.

This outfit is perfect. It may be my favorite of all the lovely outfits you have put together. The green is spring, the polka dots are so happy, and the boots are fantastic. I'm tempted to print this and stick it to my fridge with a gold star. :)

Haha,

I really like this! The color combo between the dark leather of your boots and pretty sea-foam greenish if your top is a great contrast.

I love how you styled this whole look!

Emily Kennedy said...

My word woman. That outfit is tip to toe adorable. Perfect on you.

very wonderful and extremely flattering outfit. I think a lot of the 60s style looks are very perfect for small frames (kinda obvious I guess since Twiggy's look was all the rage). I love how the mint goes with the burgundyish shade of the shoes.

loving this look. those boots especially are killer, but I'm also suspecting it has something to do with the way you've styled them =)
