Vintage Vest

This vintage vest is unique, a bit obnoxious, and anything but ordinary. I haven’t braved to wear it to any of my classes or out in public yet, I just need some more time ūüėČ My friends have called me Pioneer Woman in it, and mentioned that some of the photos are fit for an “Explore North Dakota” billboard campaign. Regardless, this vintage vest¬†is a gem, and I am bringing it to Milwaukee with me!

Meanwhile I am listening to Ophelia by Lumineers on repeat, binge watching Girls at night, and waiting to register for my Accounting class. Happy Wednesday!


Boho Chic {Thrift Style Thursday}

You don’t have to wear a skirt to be a hippie, or to style a boho chic look. I was originally going to wear a¬†maxi dress for the post, but decided to go with this look. And yes, you can wear skinny jeans and pull boho chic off!

My favorite part about this outfit is definitely this London Fog backpack. I got it from Empty the Nest, and it was one of those rare brand new vintage items, all the buckles were still wrapped in tissue paper. I also got a pretty good deal on it, they lowered the price for me from $40 to $15. If you live¬†in the Twin Cities area, Empty ¬†the Nest is one of those must see places, that sells vintage and used items. A lot of their stock is furniture, and housewares, but you can get amazing vintage pieces if you are there at the right time. And I have to mention their $5 bag sale, similar to Housing Works Buy¬†The Bag events, this is something you don’t want to miss. Let me know if you go there or have already been! What did you think?

My boots, sweater and scarf are from different Goodwill locations through out the metro, the boots are Talbots, so that’s almost like vintage, right? The sweater originally was¬†a turtle neck, but i cut it off to make this crew neckline. It was a very quick and easy fix with my crochet hook.

The jeans are from Salvation Army, and unfortunately they will probably have to go pretty soon here. But I am wearing them till their last dying breath.

How would you style a boho chic look with skinny jeans?
