1960's Inspired.

Black Lace Dress (underneath): Thrifted.
Black Velvet Booties: Forever21.
Beret: Target.

Hello everyone!
Here is my third and final look for vintage inspired outfits using modern pieces from Lulu*s.com! This little dress exudes 60's quirkiness with its sparkly peter pan collar...so dreamy! I was stumped on how style it because it's sleeveless and backless but a little lace dress underneath surely did the trick. Not to say I didn't freeze though. For being in the mid 60's two days ago it is now in the 20's and snowing...proof is on my beret! ;)

Did all of you have a swell holiday break? I certainty did! I am both anxious to get back to Kent, yet quite sad at the same time to be leaving my home town. Everything is so relaxing and familiar here...sleeping in, warm cups of coffee, catching up with T.V. shows, snuggling with kitty cat, talking for hours with my mother, and laying in my cozy bed with my laptop and a good magazine. Yet, I long so much for my life at Kent. Fast paced, on the go, friends everywhere I turn, excitement, adventure, new faces everyday, passionate environment...

I feel at such an odd place because I love both locations and don't really feel a sense of a secure home at either one. I live two completely different lives with different people and different activities. I'm a different Lauren. It can be hard to get in the mindset at each location and often when I am at one 'home' I long for the other, never being completely satisfied. Hmm. I guess I just have mixed feelings about going back tomorrow. I don't really know what to think.

And thank you once again to Lulu*s for the wonderful opportunity to collaborate and sport some vintage inspired looks. I am so blessed and hope you all enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed putting them together. Here are looks one and two if you missed them ♥

With much love, Lauren.

Lulu*s, you did good work choosing the ever-fashionable and EXTREMELY creative Lauren to style these dresses.

I know what you mean about straddling two different places. Just something that may help you: home doesn't have to be localized in one place. It can be in many places. It can be wherever you are happy.

You are a doll. I really like the sparkly collar.

Lauren, I love this pink dress! It is so pretty and the sequined peter pan collar is just perfect. You make me want to get some pieces that have peter pan collars on them!

Love this look Lauren! The lace dress underneath the pink one, certainly was a great idea!

I know how you feel about going back and forth between both, but I feel like it does get a lot easier as you continue on in college. Glad your break was wonderful, love!

xoxo,
