Vintage


Jacket (Grandma's); Dress (Chill/NY); Leggings (Vera for Kohls); Shoes (Nine West); Sunglasses (JCPenney); Watch (Fossil)

This old jacket of my Grandma's is such a lovely piece...  The gold tones, floral pattern, and cropped elements keep it dressy while still casual, and so timeless! This jacket has literally been worn in every decade for the past 50 years - talk about a return on investment! I love how easily it transitions from an outfit my Mom (pictured above) wore for a wedding, to a fun look I would wear for meeting friends...  But seriously, how cute is my Mom :)

aww it's such a cute jacket, i love having pieces that have been shared throughout generations. i think that's one of the things i love about vintage things, they always have a little bit of history attached to them

What a beautiful jacket. Your grandma has wonderful taste. Is that faux fringe print on your dress or real fringe? If it's faux - I think that is what I need to look into. Me + fringe = disaster.

Your mom looks beautiful too!

That's so cool that you can use something that's vintage but also so personal to you. I'm going home over the holidays, and I'm excited to look through my Mom's old clothes.
