I'm so glad to finally be getting around to sharing this outfit! I actually quickly put this together for April's first Pieceology Vintage pop-up at The Paper + Craft Pantry back in December, but have re-worn it a few times since then. I wanted to wear something vintage-inspired without having competing vintage pieces that might distract from her incredible collection. I don't know about you, but I think I nailed the look! (Also, yes, you may have noticed that this outfit is almost exactly this other outfit. I just can't help wearing this skirt and scarf together!)
I can't help but feel like Amelia Earhart in this outfit. It's true that I mostly feel that way due to the bomber jacket (which I'm pretty sure is actually from Papaya circa 2010???), but when paired with vintage vibes and a neck scarf (the latter of which she's frequently photographed wearing), I'm ready to take flight as one of the world's most notable aviators. Anyone having a historically-themed costume party anytime soon? Hit me up.
In totally-unrelated-to-this-outfit news that I've been waiting for the right time to share, I'm emceeing a conference at the end of this month! I am so excited to announce that I will be emceeing Thrive in The Woodlands (just outside of Houston, for you non-Texans) on February 27. I am still so honored and humbled that founders Whitney and Bree asked me to perform such a big role in the conference, and I can't wait to meet everyone there! I've never emceed anything before, so I'm a wee bit nervous. If you've got any tips for me, I'd definitely love to hear them!
