Thrift style Thursday: Pastels

Ok, so this dress isn’t thrifted, but when Pin Up Darling so graciously sent this over to me, I knew I had to use it for the pastel theme.

I normally never leave long sleeves down as is. I usually roll them up because I hate the feeling of loose fabric around my wrists (I know I’m a weirdo). But guess what, I didn’t have to roll up the sleeves for this dress! Shocker huh?

The cinched sleeves solves that problem and to top it off Pin Up Darling added retro gold buttons for an accent. I give them a thumbs up, don’t you agree?

The Green Utility

For a year, I have been on the look out for the perfect green utility jacket. A couple of months ago, I took a trip to Seattle with a couple of friends with the assumption that I am definitely going to have some luck in finding my wanna-be-hipster green utility jacket. Lo and behold, I found one! What I like about it is that it’s light, easy-to-wear and very versatile — it can be a throw-it-on jacket with jeans and a t-shirt, wear it with a dress or a skirt, or you can even throw it over a nice outfit with heels and you’re out the door!
