A little while back I took a picture at my local Anthropologie (yes, I did it again) of a display. As I was scrolling through my iPhone pictures, I rediscovered it and realized I had the makings for this outfit out in front already in my closet. Hmm, perhaps this should have been an Anthro Copy Cat post!
The result is what I like to call Modern Vintage. It is reminiscent of the sixties and mod fashion. The combination of the skinny scarf, sleeveless sweater, and slim ankle pants had me feeling like I stepped out of a movie.
I am telling you, this outfit made me extra “posey” while taking pictures!
This sleeveless sweater has some wonderful features I love and are the reasons I got it off Poshmark. I love the rich camel color, oversized asymmetric shawl collar, and cable “braid” down the front. This was the first time I wore it so I was perplexed about its length. I popped on a simple brown belt to blouse it a bit but noticed it kept riding further and further up my torso as I moved. A few of these pictures have it much higher than I would prefer, but life goes on.
The weather here in Southern California has been strange just like everywhere else in the US. It is cool with a crisp breeze one minute and warm with the sun blazing the next. I took my faux leather bomber jacket off and on at least 15 times throughout the day. I like the way this looks with or without the layer.
And although the inspiration outfit has booties that I have a version of, I opted for my Adam Lippes for Target pointy toe flats. The mix of black and white patterns in the pants and shoes appealed to me so much.
I have been prepping for a scarf post so outfits with scarves have been high on the priority list. By rolling this vintage scarf and then tying it made for a fun look. You will probably be seeing this look again in that post.

SHOP THE LOOK
The day I wore this, my hubby and I went and walked the Huntington Beach pier. I asked for him to take a picture of me and I got a big sigh. He LOATHES taking pictures, so I quickly posed by the binoculars looking like a total tourist.
I imagined he was taking the picture of me and the gorgeous ocean view. Instead I got me, the guy in a bright yellow jersey, and a FedEx truck making deliveries to the pier stores while cutting off the binoculars and the water. ??? Oh well, I shouldn’t be so picky. After all, I absolutely adore him, so I can’t be too hard on him for his photography skills.
