50s Casual

 Today I rocked the 50s casual look for class/hanging around the house.


Top: me made
Jeans: Lee @ Kohls
Scarft: thrifted

I'm super excited about these jeans. My old pair of modern jeans were on their last leg so I found this pair at Kohls. I wasn't particularly looking for a high waisted pair since they usually fit terribly but I slid this pair on and they fit great! Untucked, they look very modern and tucked the look a bit 50s especially when I roll up the legs to capri length.


I love my 50s back button blouse! I need like 5 or 6 more in my wardrobe!


I wasn't too bright last night and didn't set my hair thinking I could do it today. Normally that wouldn't be a problem but I'm running low on bobby pins (seriously, do they grow legs and walk away??) and had to do mostly sponge rollers. After quite a bit of finagling, I got them all up under this cute vintage scarf.


I have a feeling that this simple look will be a summer staple!

  3. I love the back button blouse! In my early days of vintage, I wanted to make some so badly but was always nursing one of my babies. I need to sew some this summer. Also, the jeans are too cute!! x

  8. I love how some modern pieces have a very non-intentional vintage look to them. I got a pair of levis capris, thrifted, that are so 50's. :-)

  9. Cute Outfit, I think the Sock Monster (the one that lives around the wash room and takes your other sock when you aren't looking) also has a thing for bobby pins mine always disappearing.
