Wearing my @venusmeetsvintage culottes today! I’ve been a bit obsessed with culottes lately, perhaps it’s my propensity for #yogaeverywhere that draws me to them. ☺️👯I love the gypsy-esque tapestry print on these! I’m wearing my mom’s ring and earrings from the ’70s and a friendship bracelet👭 ( @angeofleak has the other) #handmade by @vintageminnow … Both the bracelet and the culottes picked up at @bitterbettybazaar over the weekend! #vintage #vintagechicago #ootd #wiwt
So, It’s the “meteorological beginning of spring” but I had to scrape ice off my car this morning and with the season we’ve had so far might as well ride the rest of this stubborn winter out in style. Amiright!? I had been resisting thrifting ( resthrifting ) for a few months because I already have a cat playground developing in my apartment but I gave in and met this awesome faux fur gem of a #vintage coat and I don’t plan to take it off until the real spring shows it’s face. Bring it March!

A day late for #noveltybroochfriday but today’s #ootd made possible by @thebottomlinechi (#vintage dress) & @lostgirlsvintage (boots!) & @firstladiesvintage (#flowerpower brooch!) and red nose compliments of a cold I caught from over-working myself this week. 😷Thank goodness for a day off tomorrow!
