Vintage Inspired Mustard

Hello from gloomy Palm Springs! That's right, I happened to visit during the one time of year it rains here. And okay, fine, Palm Springs is only about an hour and a half away from me, so it's not like I was coming here for the weather. It actually was raining while I took these photos, which is the only reason why they were taken on our balcony. When the weather is nice, I usually try to take photos in front of one of the cute houses with a white picket fence on our street, unless I can convince Jon to go somewhere other than our block. When it's rainy though, my options are limited. This isn't my favorite my background, but it gets the job done.

While you apparently all thought that Monday's outfit was the best thing I've ever worn (according to the majority of comments I got on Instagram at least), this one is actually my new favorite. I've always loved vintage styles, but ever since I started following more vintage bloggers, I've been drawn to it even more lately. I still love doing a mix of vintage and modern as I've always done, but I couldn't resist just going for it when I realized how perfect this mustard top looked with this skirt. It begged for BAIT wingtips, a bow in my hair, and curled bangs. I took these photos on Sunday, and I haven't been able to stop wearing my hair like this since. 

Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: B.A.I.T


  1. Love you in this mustard shade!


  2. There is a lovely Van Gogh touch in it

  3. I love the skirt, but it is all the other little, subtle details that really make this outfit for me. Love the bouncy ponytail and cat-eye glasses. It gives a subtle vintage vibe but not over the top. It's more timeless than time-travelled-back-to-the-past. Which is always a good thing in my book :)

  4. This is so cute! I would love to know what vintage style blogs you follow. I've not been too inspired with my clothes lately, but this post may have sparked something for me!-
