She's a Humdinger, Folk Singer

Sweater: Vintage via Wildman Vintage, $16 // Jeans: Courtesy of Fossil // Shoes: Clark's, $40 // Ring: Gift

A friend of mine spotted this sweet vintage sweater while we were shopping together. The bell sleeves and patterned accents charmed me right away. Lucky for me, she didn't want it for herself. I'm typically a solo shopper, but it's happy little discoveries like this that highlight the value of an extra pair of eyes. I almost definitely wouldn't have picked up this little gem if not for her.


I threw it on right away with some skinny jeans. While I considered a super wide-leg pair, I thought that might get a bit costumey. In keeping with the bohemian feel of the sweater, however, I slipped on my classic Clark's Wallabees for the first time in years. This was the ideal outfit for sipping a cup of tea at my favorite coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon.

I love the shape of this sweater, and it's perfectly balanced by your skinny jeans.

I always smile when I see Clark's Wallabees - my boyfriend wears them all the time...and they remind me of Eric from That 70's Show!
