Hello Blogosphere! I've been due for a new outfit post for some time now but my little adventures have been getting in the way. The day after my Wyoming adventure my BF and I headed up to northern Utah to explore the Cache National Forest and we ended up in Idaho on accident. Yes you read that right, it was literally like... holy shit we're in Idaho? And better yet, it was the town where Napolean Dinamite was filmed (yes it's as bleak and boring as it seems in the movie.)

Anyways, now I'm back in action and wearing my absolute favorite suit. I purchased this baby awhile ago, but the pants were way too short for me to wear. So after months of staring at it in my closet I finally hemmed the pants into shorts and I love how it turned out!

Suit: Vintage Blouse: Vintage Givenchy Shoes: Aldo

You walk the line between vintage and modern so well in your platform sandals.

The Fancy Teacup said...

This is by far one of my most favorite outfit of yours. The vintage suit set is so darling. Adore the self made "suit shorts." You look absolutely stellar.

Wow, that vintage suit is a gem of a find. Women's suits are hard enough to find, but in that condition as well... you hit the jackpot!

I would kill to wear a fun and super cute short suit like this. It looks incredible on you. The socks and the bag and the hat. Gah it all works so perfectly.

Your street looks so beautiful too. Everything I imagine that area in the states to be like. Sometimes I wish I didn't live by the beach.

Yay a new fave blogger ♥
