New Love...


Tweed jackets, trousers, and gaudy neckwear inspiration Coco Chanel...I bought 5 trousers which was a huge step for me because pants and I have a love hate relationship. I am 5'1 so it is hard to find a pant that fits, flatters, and doesn't drag on the ground. I have been struggling to find a way to wear trousers that wont make me look older yet not to lose the vintage feel. I have also been struggling with how to keep warm without a lot of layers or thinking just a cardigan with do with the morning chill. A blazer or a tweed jacket has that touch because you can also take it off. Although tights are thick and great I don't have the 20 mins extra to squeeze in them when I step out so a trouser does just fine. Pant suits also help around the office for the file thats always in the back or on the ground! I also find a layered pearl necklace gives it that extra vintage kick when a pant suit might look too masculine.

Thank you, Dani!
The hand is a bit much...she was gettin into herself a little too much.
