Casual Reading at The Park


One of the many wonderful things that happens when spring finally does arrive is the chance to do some activities outdoors. You can take a nice stroll, a long drive around the neighborhood with the windows down, or hang out at the park and get some light reading done.

A few days ago I woke up in a 1940's kind of mood. Who says anyone has to stick to one decade? I love it all and wanted to get back to the decade closest to my heart.

I wore a pair of trusty Freddies of Pinewood  jeans and paired it with a top from Anthropologie. I added one of my WWII brooches, a pair of navy blue bow stud earrings purchased HERE, and a pair of 1950's sunglasses I purchased at the Manhattan Vintage Show a few months ago and it's all done. Oh yes, I cannot forget about wearing my Russian Red Lipstick by MAC.

Channeling the 1940's has never been so easy. You can do it!

  1. Love this outfit! Comfy, casual yet classy!

  2. Really love your casual look. It'd be my uniform when my 50s jeans comes in the mail. Woot!

  3. Aww, you look so lovely and sweet! Absolutely!!! Hopping between decades and/or mixing elements from more than one together in the same look is one of the biggest joys of wearing vintage, IMO.
