Lookbook: Floral and Free Spirit

Continuing my lookbook challenge here is another hippy outfit I put together with my mom's closet. It's great for a lookbook and makes me want to sit in a circle and sing to folk songs. Thanks to all the hippies you can get away with wearing anything here on Vancouver Island without others thinking too much of it.

So in case you're wondering just how "practical" this is, I rented a movie and picked up a cake wearing this on the way home and no one offered me some weed- Unlike other days. Just kidding. And the cake was delicious.




Vest and Shirt: Vintage from mom

  8. Fabulous outfit, I love the fact that you've raided your mum's closet! I was talking to my mum the other day about her clothes from the sixties and seventies and how we'd wished she'd kept them. Definitely makes me consider things I'm planning to throw out. Happy New Year xx

  29. Oh, this just frosts me! Do you know the hours and hours and hours I've spent in the woods and walking on train tracks, but was there ever a pretty girl there? No!!! Well, at least there were no folk songs either. =) If your mom said you look pretty in her clothes, she was right.
