Vive le Vert: A Fresh Spring Outfit of the Day
Hello hello all. Sorry I’ve been a little MIA as of late, but my senior thesis was due last Friday (!), so I was glued to that project about 20 hours a day all last week, and then slept 20 hours a day all weekend. I’ve been playing catch-up with the rest of my life since then. But now I’m back, the prodigal son returning to my beloved, if unknown, blog, with a fresh and fun outfit of the day.
It’s finally gotten warm over the past couple of weeks, which has been incredible! No socks! No winter coats! No cold sniffles, just allergy sniffles! Grass, plants, breezes, windows open and heat off! Spring! As you can tell it’s all very exciting.
I’ve been trying to dress in a way that matches my breezy sun-kissed mood lately, and this is what I’ve come up with today.
I’m still sporting a light jacket because I am ever cautious, you never know when it’s going to get chilly! This green corduroy bomber is the one I picked up at the Brooklyn Flea Market over spring break (you can watch that adventure here), so it’s vintage and very fun! It’s the perfect weight, and even though it’s this bright bright kelly green, it’ seems to go with more of my closet than not!
I’m wearing some great Levi’s in the very ~trendy~ cropped kickflare raw-hem style (I know that was a lot of adjectives). These are so comfortable and flattering, and they’re one of those items that you can wear with anything and you instantly look like you tried, you know? Like woke up 20 minutes before class? Throw on your Levi’s kickflares, a t-shirt, and some flats and you’ve achieved that cool French It-Girl look, bedhead and all. Just remember to brush your teeth and you’re golden.
I bought my Levi’s on Amazon for a fraction of their normal price, the only caveat being that you don’t get to choose from the full range of washes that the official Levi’s store offers.
I’m also wearing this fabulous billowy vintage top from the 70s that makes me feel a little Shakespearean. This was one of my first Instagram purchases actually. I was recently made aware of the newest (and also most competitive) way to shop vintage, which is through Instagram! This particular piece I got from a shop @the__zoo . You should definitely check this shop out, it’s got an incredible selection, and the owner was super nice and incredibly friendly! I'm also planning on doing a post or two in the future about vintage shopping online, and vintage shopping in store/in general, so look out for that!
I’ve got on some shimmery gold ballet flats that I picked up from Zara during their post-holidays sale when everything is like 10$. They’re a little scratchy against my heels from the shimmery material, but other than that, they’re super comfortable!
I’ve also got on my new favorite earrings, which are shaped like hands! They’re so fun, and I always get a ton of compliments when I wear them because they’re a little inconspicuous. I grabbed these from Young Frankk, an amazing jewelry designer I heard about from one of my favorite YouTubers, LaMadelynn. They have really beautiful, simply designed, elegant pieces, and I’ve already added several to my wishlist!
Last, but certainly not least, I’m wearing Glossier’s boybrow in black and Glossier’s Generation G in Jam on my face. I love this stuff. If you’ve read almost any of my other blog posts, you know how much I love Glossier. I’ve drunk the koolaid and I’m not afraid to admit it. This company is fabulous. (Shameless plug: if you're interested in trying out something from Glossier, use this link to get 20% off your first order! http://bff.glossier.com/eHxUv)
Shout out and thanks to Vickey for being the best Insta-spouse I could ever ask for!
Anyway, I’m so happy that it’s finally beautiful and warm outside again, and that my thesis is turned in! Hopefully I’ll be posting more outfits of the day in the future now that I have some free time again! Also, be on the lookout for videos about my midterms retail therapy purchases, and a spring trends lookbook on my YouTube channel!
Thanks for reading, and as always, I encourage you to comment, ask questions, or send suggestions! Let’s chat!
