Modern Vintage

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.

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.

  1. First off…I had to laugh about the picture taking. My husband does the same thing—he doesn’t have the experience to take in the entire surroundings (yet)—but I consider it a success when there’s no finger in the picture—ha ha!!
    Secondly—-what a great job putting this outfit together. I would have never thought to wear the scarf with a neckline like that, but it’s fabulous!! You have such great ideas Janeane (can you tell me how you pronounce your name?)

    1. Hehe, I know. I think it was logical to place me in the center of the picture to him.

      And thanks, I played around with the scarf for a bit and without it tightly rolled, it was way too much. I am happy with how it turned out.

      Ah, my name. It is an unusual spelling. It is pronounced Juh-neen. I typically see the name spelled something like Jenine or Jeanine.

  2. I’m laughing too, because you will see, if you follow my blog the results when my hubby takes a picture as opposed to my professional photographer daughter taking pictures. Ha, ha. Great outfit. I love the monochrome look of the sweater and jacket along with the pop of the print pants. Great combination and cute shoes! -Amy

    1. Yes, when taking pictures with him, he makes fun of me when I give him specific instructions and often takes pictures of me pointing my finger and while I am talking to annoy me.

      I am not one to usually wear non-colorful outfits, but I like that it is not lacking in personality with all the details going on.

  3. SO CUTE! I love this look! It is very Mad Men, but also kind of timeless and chic. And still such a look full of personality. I adore all the textures and use of pattern with all the little details.
