Fashion Flashback

We’re traveling back in time today… I feel as if I stepped out of Beverly Hills in the 80’s with this outfit. (The colors remind me of this post on Cupcakes & Cashmere!) The peachy peony + mint blouse with cigarette-leg light wash denim feels very vintage. Maybe it’s because I haven’t worn light wash jeans since, I don’t know, my Abercrombie & Fitch destroyed flares days in high school. (Seriously, what the heck was I thinking?!)

PS – I promise I steamed my shirt. Sitting kind of ruined things.

    I love these pastels on you. I agree that it definitely has an 80’s vibe to it, but you kept it modern with the fit!

    I think you look great in light denim! It’s funny you mention the A&F destroyed jeans. I regrettably had a pair too, ripped knees and everything. I even paired it an A&F hoodie. Woops…
