The days of wool skirts and sweaters are here!

The title of this blog says it all! Well actually, for a long time now. I have been really anxious to wear my winter clothes, but I have to remind myself that I live in Arizona! Can you believe that the high in Tucson on Wednesday was 55 degrees! I know some of you that live in really cold weather are chuckling at me right now, but that is cold for us. I was so thrilled! So here are some pics of my outfits the last couple of days!

Wednesday's Outfit:

Navy, green and yellow argyle print cardigan- vintage inspired repro from guess? "Target!"
1940's inspired dungarees- Freddies of Pinewood
Vintage spectator loafers- estate sale find
My accessories included a yellow skinny belt, vintage spectator purse, 1940's ivory earrings, and a green chiffon scarf tied around the back of my hair.

Thursday's Outfit:

One of my favorite Vintage wool skirts is this little black, red & tan number. I found this at a thrift store about two years ago for a whopping $3.00!

Outfit details: This outfit is definitely a little more 1930's era. My blouse is a Vintage inspired reproduction that I found while shopping for bed sheets at T.J. Maxx last year (love it when you find something you didn't expect to!). It caught my eye because of the deco looking ruffles on the collar and down the front of the blouse (sorry the wind was blowing ruffles and my hair away!) Shortly after I found that fabulous blouse. I found these great reproduction shoes at Dillard's (Steve Madden). Would you believe they have the same pattern of ruffles down the t-strap! I accessorized with a red beret, red belt, black fully fashioned seamed stockings, ivory colored cardigan, Vintage black purse, Vintage ivory earrings and ivory bangle.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and a Happy Halloween! I can't wait to post a picture of my costume and I hope to read and see pictures of all of yours too!



  1. LOVE!!! all your clothes. Keep up the great work. ;)

  2. I love both outfits. The cardi in the first is fab!
    Also, I think that's cold, too! But I also live in a hotter climate. Though maybe not quite as hot as Arizona?

  3. Great outfits! I love plaid skirts and berets; I have a very similar argyle cardigan too :-)

  4. Love both, especially the first one! Isn't Target great?! You never know what you're going to find there!

  5. Both looks are marvelously lovely! I think you must have one of the best vintage wardrobes I've ever seen. Every outfit you post fills me with inspiration and makes me wish my closet was similarly stockpiled with such amazing pieces.

    Oodles of hugs,
