(Outfit: 1970s deadstock blouse; Target cardigan; 1950s flannel-lined jeans; Bamboo sneakers)

Much as I love my frocks and heels, sometimes I just don't feel like getting all dressed up, especially not on a rainy school morning. Here's a rare glimpse of me in jeans and sneakers; look quick, or you might miss it! In all honesty, though, I do love my vintage jeans for lazy days and weekends. Oh, and the "D" monogram on my cardigan was a little D.I.Y. with an iron-on; being not so athletically inclined in my high school days, a real letter sweater just wasn't in the cards, so I made my own. Take that, jocks!

What, you didn't bring a vintage chest of drawers and a suitcase of antique stuffed
animals to your college dorm?
Weirdo.


Have a great weekend, all; I'm heading home to my mother's for a quick visit, to play with my poor neglected horse and eat some delicious home-cooked food! I'll be sure to return with some more interesting outfit posts than the usual bleak dorm shoots; my mom's house is filled with bright colors and antiques, and we have all sorts of collapsing farm buildings, hilly fields, and even a grand abandoned farmhouse just across the street... just beauty everywhere you look!

  1. I agree it can get a bit much getting dolled up every single day especially in bad weather, but this look is so cute and still in keeping with your style, lovely.

  2. Have fun with your horsie. You look cute all casual. I rarely wear jeans either, but sometimes it feels like the right thing to do.

  7. Thank you one and all <3

    Solanah, I remember your flannel jeans post; the resemblance between our pairs is uncanny!

    Foofandfaff, it's so easy-- I just bought the iron-on for about fifty cents and it takes just an instant to iron on. I say go for it!

  11. You've inspired me to do my own DIY letter cardigan, I always wanted a vintage one but they are usually too big or itchy to wear.

    Love the high ponytail and the flannel lined jeans, you look like a vintage college co-ed.

    Just wanted to let you know that I've tagged you for a "Stylish Blogger" award! http://thriftaholic.blogspot.com/2011/04/7-factoids-about-moi.html

  18. You look great! I know exactly what you mean, theres sometimes just those days where you just don't want to put on a pretty dress- I don't know why that is! I just invested in some 1940's repro dungarees and high waisted trousers for these exact days! xx
