*Come back for new posts every ‘Forward-Thinker-with-a-Vintage-Soul Friday!’
Okay, I know I’ve recently made the case for off-duty style that isn’t loungewear, but in my defense this comfy set of isn’t sweats! There are ways to make laid-back look luxurious instead of lazy (and it’s totally fine to have your lazy days too, because let’s be honest I’ve had many of those).
As you know, all my ‘fits have some sort of vintage vantage. For top-to-bottom, I took motifs from the 1890’s (lace) and the 1990’s. Anything twenty years or older is considered colloquially “vintage,” so both me (I’m 23) and my accoutrements are such!
These lace scalloped shorts have been in my closet for years, and have stood the test of time throughout my ensemble evolution. They are quite deceptive, because they make me look put together without ceding comfort. The bubblegum-pink bottoms are stretchy enough that they can be worn while curling up with Josie Silver’s One Day in December (AKA me currently), but fancy enough that I can wear them around town post-pandemic for a potential love at first sight run-in with my soulmate (if you’ve read Silver’s novel, you’d know what I’m talking about!).
The ‘90s satin top with spaghetti straps is silky and soft, equally comfy for sunbathing on your window-side chaise in the afternoon light and pairs well with the scalloped shorts like white wine with actual scallops. Then when the world opens back up again, the blouse will go well with jeans, too! It’s one of my most worn vintage items I scored a couple years ago!
Disclaimer: these photos were taken last summer by my lovely friend, Mari Makatsaria but the outfit will be on repeat this summer too!
