Vintage People and Cloudy Skies


So I'm back in the swing of things, now that spring break is over, and I have to get used to taking these outfit pictures again. Every time I have a huge break in between taking photos I have to get used to the idea of posing all over again. I'll never stop finding posing awkward. :)


So I officially picked my apartment for the next school year and I'm so excited! We got the apartment we wanted so we're all pretty happy. Oh, now my head is going to full of pretty little interior decorating ideas! Not for a while though since I have both a Statistics and Managerial Accounting exam coming up next week and a Convention this weekend that I have so much left to finish for (including a 100+ slide power point, gah!) 


(l/s forever 21, belt h&m, skirt vintage, heels urban outfitters



While I was searching for an affordable dress for my convention this weekend, I became desperate. (When I dragged my friend to the mall we left empty handed, he was a good sport though and even tried on a dress himself - future blackmail? ;) ) So, in my desperation, I decided to check out a vintage/antique store in the downtown area near my house that I've passed year after year but never entered. Lo and behold there were tons of goodies and even though I didn't find a dress (I'm not bold enough to wear those crazy prom dresses from the 70's and 80's) I was able to find this lovely skirt just in time for spring.

Oh, and the meaning behind the title of the post: I was telling my friend Mark about my skirt and I explained that it was what "vintage people" wore. Kinda forgot people can't really be vintage. Whoops. :)

  5. Hola Jen! Vintage people wear... haha so cute!

    Thrifting a great find is kind of like winning the lottery? Actually I don't know how that feels... I guess like acing a test that you didn't study for? Lol.

    I think I'm waring the same belt in my current post! :P

    Have a good week!

  8. I just purchased those heels from Urban! They went on super sale after the season, and I had to snag them..I have yet to wear them, but they seem really comfy, and they look great without outfit!

    p.s. as a new reader of your blog, I must say you have great style, your outfits are always so cute!

  63. Haha I know what you mean, while I've gotten used to it and (hopefully) better at it, posing will always feel awkward XD
