A floral turtleneck, a suspender skirt and a vintage 80’s handbag… sounds like a recipe for disaster. Or as it turns out awesomeness! If you don’t agree you are certainly entitled to your opinion. As for myself, I’m sticking with awesomeness. I am SO feeling this 70’s/80’s mashup which came together rather unexpectedly when was rearranging my closet and had them lying next to one another.
If you haven’t noticed, turtlenecks have made quite the comeback. I love these thin comfortable ones for layering or wearing alone, especially in a fun floral print like this one. And though I never thought I’d love suspenders, it turns out I do! These can be removed allowing for more versatility, which is always appreciated. For a touch of retro romance I’m digging these mauve colored sunnies which are perfect for this time of year and are a nice break from the usual suspects. As for the vintage bag, it was a lucky find which you may have seen here. Believe it or not was made by Vanna White. Ummm, YAHHH… Does anyone remember her designing a handbag line? Me neither.
I guess sometimes it’s all about life’s happy accidents. Especially the stylish ones!
