peace out girl scout

Vintage 60's Girl Scout skirt, thrifted tee, vintage sweater, thrifted Kathy Van Zeeland bag, vintage star necklace (it was my mom's), and vintage Ferragamo flats. 

I know. I'm wearing a part of a Girl Scout's uniform. Let me explain. I have a love for the history the clothes hold; that's part of why I was drawn to making vintage my life. So when I found this 1960's Girl Scout skirt, I thought it was the coolest thing (not to mention, I'm an ex-Girl Scout and it struck a cord with me). Also, my mom was with me at the time and she told me it was exactly the same as the one she wore in the 60's. Totally sealed the deal. Surprisingly, it was way too big and I knew it. It's a rare find so I took it in myself.

You can make fun of me for wearing this cardigan that is the epitome of a grandma sweater. Brian relentlessly makes fun of me every time I walk out of the house in it. As well as my friends, my family, and random people on the street who stare. I have a problem with loving grandma sweaters. Yesterday I was at Wendy's with my mom and there was this lady in her 70's in line. I turned to my mom and said: "See, I'm truly a grandma - I would wear that lady's sweater." She just laughed. I was serious.

I hope you're having a good week. Mine has been nuts!
