Jumping the Gun

Tunic: Vintage, thrifted, $4 // Leggings: Forever 21, $16 // Necklace: Forever 21, $9 // Shoes: Forever 21, $26

It’s really not that cool outside, but I just can’t wait to wear some of my new fall pieces! My office is chilly, so I use that as an excuse. Anyway, on to my overly warm outfit…. this handmade paisley tunic was another vintage find from last weekend. I like having a one-of-a-kind piece to temper the otherwise Forever 21-dominated ensemble. You might as well get used to the trouser-like leggings, edgy oversize necklace and lace-up wedge booties now, though, because I have a feeling they will all be essential components of my autumn wardrobe. I believe I’m going to wear the leggings again tomorrow, and I will share with you what made me so excited to find them!

I'm really digging this look of old meets new with a hint of edgy-- like a recipe of fashion goodness! That shade of blue is really flattering. :)

I. Love. This.


I have never bought anything from Forever 21. I work right by one but since I get such a good discount at A'gaci, I always talk myself out of going in there!

Wow. I was surprised to read that those were leggings, until I took a closer look. I thought they were gray skinny jeans! I love what you've done with this vintage tunic. And oh my goodness, those shoes! Of course I'm going to have to find those now... here I come, F21!
