It feels good to be on Christmas Break. It would feel better if this cold weren’t still hanging on for dear life. Yesterday I laid on the couch watching Netflix all day. This morning I still felt icky, but was so stir crazy that I had to get up and get going. So I went to Target to pick up a few things. And this is what I wore.
A bit frivolous for a Target run, I’ll admit. A bit frivolous for anytime according to some of the raised eyebrows I got while walking down the aisles in search of cough medicine. Which reminds me, I got carded for buying Robitussin. Really? You only have to be 18 to buy it.
Regardless of the cold and fever, raised eyebrows, and mistaken case of age at the checkout, I loved this outfit. It feels more “me” than anything I’ve worn lately. When I first thought of it, I was hesitant. The tights with shorts, the 1960’s ish top, and a flower in my hair? It just seemed…the opposite of “what is in.” But I think I care less and less about fads and more about what I’m drawn to, which ever since I can remember is anything from another era. I am making a commitment to start shopping smarter by only buying things I absolutely adore and focusing my search on vintage or vintage inspired pieces. They’re my favorite.
