Spring is here, which means taking outfit photos in the rain here in Seattle! Having spent yesterday hiding out in a coffee shop to get some work done, I took a quick look at my closet to pick out some favourite pieces from past seasons to help put together some Spring outfit ideas before heading out. This is what I came up with, zombie eye-bags included from dealing with Daylight Savings on top of a 17 hour time zone change! haha :P
Everything in this outfit was pulled from existing pieces in my closet, aside from the Coach City Bag. This vintage piece was a recent score on Poshmark (do any of you use this app? Would love to chat about your thoughts on here) after seeing a not-so-great-shape version of this vintage beauty while at my local Goodwill store. I absolutely love the simple silhouette and the crossbody style and went on a crazy hunt to find a better conditioned one from what I saw in person.
It took a few weeks of stalking Poshmark, Ebay, and Etsy, but I finally found this cognac beauty in pristine condition from 1987 and am so excited to have added it to my collection. This would be the first accessory purchased in 2016 for me, which broke my shopping ban for handbags. Can’t say I’m too sad about breaking the ban on this piece!
So this is pic below is definitely an outtake, but I wanted to make a quick shoutout to Fitcode, who helped me find these perfect fitting jeans last summer. As my body went through (and is still going through) a bunch of changes, Fitcode helped to find sets of jeans that would fit my proportions.
Fitcode is currently hosting a contest that’s open to anyone for a pair of premium denim up to $200. Simply upload a pic of yourself in your favourite pair of jeans to their Facebook contest (contest details here). I’m not getting compensated for this post, but I do have a chance of winning as well if you let them know you heard about the contest from my lil ‘ol blog.
