Black Bow Blouse, Gloves, T-Strap Heels, Vintage Hat, Earrings: Thrifted.

Hello everyone!
I'm excited and honored to have partnered up with Lulu*s.com to put together three different looks, each one representing a different era of fashions past but using modern clothing. Today's look is 1940's and I have a 1950's look and 1960's look respectively coming up soon ♥

If you couldn't tell from these pictures, I am not in Kent anymore! I got home late last night to my home town and it certainty feels good to be back. Gosh, I missed my cat so much and snuggled with him all last night...and I guess I missed my family, too ;)

Today I went back to my favorite place to take pictures and it was so magical...it made me fall in love with blogging and photography all over again. Truthfully I get frustrated often times being at Kent because there just isn't the freedom and the seclusion of taking pictures wherever I want. There's people everywhere and usually when I am brave enough to even take them I end up getting harassed by silly boys. So, it was certainly a nice treat to just immerse myself into nature today and be able to take pictures with the ease and creativity that I used to. Looking forward to doing it again tomorrow!

Okay, and I can't end this post without fangirling over this skirt...I've been aching to try the peplum trend and this skirt is the perfect way to sport it. I usually don't wear pencil skirts/anything body con because uhm, let's be honest here...I have hips! Circle skirts and I have become bffs the past few years, but with this skirt I think there might be a new love in my life. It made my proud and confident to embrace my womanly shape!

Hope you all are doing lovely...
With much love, Lauren.

Pencil skirts are made for hips! (Peplums are just icing on the cake.) This skirt is gorgeous on you, I know I've mentioned it but red is amazing color on you, it's killer with your skin and gorgeous hair. You always do lovely vintage looks, it's one of my favorite things about you style.
Happy Thanksgiving dear!

Love the whole outfit. Soo classy. The red lipstick really pops out with that skirt paired with it.

Kristian said...

Oh, you look darling. I love the hat!

Alice, Pretty Confused said...

You look stunning! Love this outfit, the blouse and the skirt together are just fantastic. And I love the gloves! I'm not too keen on taking outfit photos by myself, I live in a city and even if I find somewhere quiet someone will walk by. Awkward. I'm glad being at home is making you feel better about blogging. Have an amazing day xo

Ashley Holloway said...

This skirt is perfect on you! The whole outfit is just fantastic with a very 40s inspired look, I really love it!

You look so pretty in that peplum skirt, Lauren! Peplum is one of my favorite trends of the season and I always get so happy when I see people wearing the girly silhouette.

You are so lucky to be partnering with Lulu's! They are my favorite online boutique and I hope one day that I can partner with them as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Wow! I usually dislike Peplum but that is one bonny skirt!!!! Red- great colour choice! Where did the brown bag come from? Is it a hat box?
I miss being able to take photos outside. It's always dark when I get home from school
