You've Knocked Me Off My Feet Again.









1950's Circle Skirt: Vintage Store.
Green Cardigan, Black Heels, Clip Earrings: Thrifted.
Blue top w/ Peter Pan Collar (actually a dress): Modcloth.
Key Necklace: Gift from Matt.

Hello there my lovelies...
This is a retro 1960's inspired outfit for the day! I attempted to do a beehive again but sadly the mist, rain, and wind sort of killed all of the volume I had: boo! When I first started this blog, I actually only liked 40's and 50's vintage clothing and hadn't a clue about the 60's fashion era. Now that a few years have passed, I've found myself growing out of the 40's and more growing into the 60's... Something about the voluminous hair, sexy cat eyes, and quirky outfits just makes my heart melt!

I've got a huge anatomy test I must go study for & MUST do well on! Ergh, when am I ever going to need to know where the interconylar eminence is on the tibia...!? Exactly ;)

With much love, Lauren.

I was literally just telling my dad that the 60's are my favorite decade. I just love the music, the clothes, the hair....and there's such a wide variety of all of those too!

Ah...I wish I had the drive to take outfit pictures as often ass you do! It's such wonderful documentation.

:)

You look lovely, by the way (as always).

That skirt is really lovely :) I love this element of 50s/60s fashion...there's something so feminine about it, without being overly 'girly', if that makes sense! Good luck in your test too :)

Lauren, you look lovely! I agree with the librarian comment! I like way you teamed that dress with the skirt and cardie! They pick out the colours of the skirt!

You study WEIRD things in the USA!!! :-)

This striped skirt is so pretty and I love the colors you chose to pair with it. Full skirts are my favorite right now.

I love this, all the color and patterns and textures! They all look so good together. I totally hear you about a love for the sixties, I love cat eyes so much! If only I wasn't too lazy to put on make up haha. Thanks again for that beehive tutorial, I can't stop teasing my hair now!

Good luck on the test girl! ♥

That key necklace you're wearing is really cute. I love the mix of blue and teal and all the fun colors in your skirt. Everything looks so nice and slightly retro. Love it!
