vintage-vacation-fashion

This past week and a half my social media game has been anything but strong. Being a blogger, it’s kind of expected to be posting about everything you’re doing/eating/wearing at any given moment, but it’s also good to de- stress. After all, we’re only human. It’s so refreshing to be able to put your phone down, not worry about social media and just LIVE in the moment.

I love me some vintage clothing, but finding quality vintage clothing comes with a price. A price in terms of your time (and sometimes your money). Vintage clothes shopping cannot be compared to a store in the mall, and you can’t just pop in and find what you’re looking for in a mere seconds. It takes time to find pieces that are appealing to you, that look good on and etc. And they’re more than likely one of a kind.

I’m wearing this vintage inspired top from Etsy boutique Lacen80s, and although it’s not technically vintage, I love the fact that their new clothing looks the part. The selection of clothes they have to offer boasts some major cool girl vibes, and they update their boutique on the reg. Whether you’re a vintage fanatic, or like to find unique and trendy pieces, Lacen80s is most definitely a website you want to keep bookmarked. I posted a few of my favourite pieces down below (to further prove my point) 😉

Who says knitted headbands are just to keep you warm when you’re outdoors? Yes, they’re practical, and yes they keep your ears warm, but it doesn’t just stop there. These cute headbands make for a chic accessory with basically anything you wear. My simple blazer, white tee, jeans and converse look? It ain’t so simple anymore.

The headband I’m wearing is from Etsy shop Marquia Makes. It’s a handcrafted good made from yarn and acrylic, and most importantly with #loveandcaffeine. Amen sister. Along with headbands and throws, Marquia Makes has an array of super cute mason jars with various saying on them… and she’ll be adding new items to the boutique in Spring, like these pom poms I’ve got clipped onto my Kate Spade clutch!

Ever since I started rocking the pom poms on different handbags and my jacket zipper, I’ve gotten so many compliments on them. I mean… they also take a simple something and make it into something unique. And who wouldn’t want that?
