Jumper for Joy

Turtleneck: Target, $10 // Dress: Vintage via Arizona Trading Company, $10 // Boots: Vintage via Wild Man Vintage, $15

I couldn't resist the schoolgirl charm of this vintage jumper dress. The almost-neon yellow and green plaid adds just enough kitsch. Because of the bold centerpiece, I kept the rest of the look simple. And it's a wonder I don't have a look of utter anguish on my face in this photo. It was painfully cold! Sometimes winter makes it rather difficult to feel chic.

It's like someone took a couch from some grandparent's living room and made it into this tripped out jumper. I love it!

I love that jumper!!!

With the cold weather, my biggest problem is keeping my eyes dry & open for photos. The wind and cold air make them tear like crazy and I have to resist the temptation to just keep them shut :)

Oh my goodness! I totally just thrifted a shirt made from almost that exact fabric as that jumper. The buttons are similar too:) Weird.

Anyways, I love the outfit!

Oh my gosh! Are you coming to the Texas Style Council Conference? Because the dance Saturday night is totally themed "Clueless" and this jumper is perfect. I feel this is reason enough for you to come on down. <3

Wow, love the 60s style. You look great. Love the mix of brown and black too.

Great colors in that jumper! And I love the little oomph of sass that those thigh-high socks add to the ensemble!
