Vintage Camel Hair Coat + Chunky Knit + Levis Destroyed Mini + Frye Campus Boots (70’s inspired Fall Layering)

 The Mom Edit had a month long style challenge during October.

Each week there was a theme.

I looooove style challenges!  Sadly, I don’t have time to partake usually.

One of these days, I’m going to make up my own!  When I have time…

In any case.  The Mom Edit’s style challenge for this particular week was “70’s Vibe”.  Just went to link their post, and realized I got featured-yay!  Not this outfit, but 2 other ones 🙂

As someone who was born in the 70’s, I thought…I GOT THIS!  I had SO many thoughts of outfits I wanted to put together!

And then…work.  Maya’s stuff.  RAIN.  WORK….

Anyways.  This is about it.

Vintage coat.  Possibly from the 70’s, but so timeless that it works in about EVERY era!

Cut off Levi’s Denim skirt!  Because.  CUT OFFS.  LEVI’S!  Denim Skirt…70’s!

Chunky cream knits.  Yes.

Vintage Frye Knee High Boots.  Quite possibly from the 70’s too! And no shame in my game.  People were walking by left and right this foggy morning… But in between….don’t mind me!

On me…

Coat- Vintage (thrifted, similar here and less expensive here)
Sweater- 360 Sweater (ebay, similar here)
Keeping it Real…
Yes, that’s a mailman behind me.  No, I’m not stopping if I hear the shutter click haha.
I’ll just photoshop him out! 😉
But…my neighbors that walk by all the time…yeah, that’s still awkward.

Vintage Camel Hair Coat + Tie Front Striped Button Down + DIY High Waisted Crop Flare + Clogs

 if you follow us at all, you know I’m totally obsessed with cutting my jeans.  It’s one of the many perks of thrifting!  I’m much more adventurous on my “alterations” when I’ve spent less than $20 on a pair of jeans.  Usually less than $15!  I went through a distressing my own jeans phase.

Now, I’m all about chopping off the bottom of all my jeans.  You see the raw hem trend EVERYWHERE, which is TOTALLY helpful when you have a short inseam! And also….striped button down tops!  I had to have an extension to my striped tee obsession haha.But back to the cutting of the jeans…

It’s to the point that it’s getting a little out of control-ha!  Yet…not?

It’s like I’m giving new life to jeans I was NEVER wearing!  AND…now I LOVE them.

So, is that wrong?  I think not.

I had to admit to myself.  Long jeans with heels are not happening anymore.  SO, all my beloved “date night” long jeans….chop chop!

And I’m now I want to wear them all the time!

And they will just get better with every wash… And I’m late in posting this.  Like…really late.

BUT, I’ve said it before.  One of my favorite things to thrift is vintage wool coats.  You can find AMAZING coats with details you can’t even imagine for less than $30!  This one was $16, and I have to be honest…I was cranky about that hahaha.

YET…if you were to buy a true camel hair coat of this quality in the stores, you’d be paying $200 minimum, and upwards of $500!) . SO, again, go thrifting!  Even if you are in a small town!  Go to vintage/antique stores or malls!  I’ve found some GEMS visiting random little towns.

On me…

100% Camel Hair Coat- Vintage (thrifted for $16! similar here )
Top- J Crew (eBay, Similar here)
Jeans- AG DIY Cut hem (eBay, similar here).
Keeping it Real…
Sooo…it was REALLY windy, as you can tell from my hair, but this is also on a pretty high traffic street.  Totally got busted by someone driving reeeeeeaaaaally slow by me wondering what the heck I was doing.  I’m actually totally over it, but still feel like a total nerd in the moment haha.
Whatever.  The look on my face though….
