Horse of a Different Colour

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 168 0

Top: H&M. Skirt: Betsey Johnson. Handbag: J.Crew Edie. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: ASOS. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade Bow Ring, Ardene. Bracelets: Stella & Dot, BCBG, J.Crew, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

If clothing is more than 10 years old, can it be considered vintage? ย Well, I’m going to say yes, and say that this is a vintage Betsey Johnson skirt that I’ve had for at least a decade. ย Vintage just sounds so much more chic than old.

    Oh my stars…how darling is that horse print? And it’s just perfectly preppy with your ruffled skirt, chic bag, and nude pumps. Love it.

    How funny I just bought a shirt with horses on it and everyone thought it was weird. Given that your fashion sense is amazing, i am now sure I will wear my horses proud ๐Ÿ™‚

    I agree…I like vintage….makes you sound more chic! Love this whole outfit! The printed top is great!

    • Jenny
      September 12, 2012

      YES, totally sounds more chic! That was the word I was looking for (instead of pretty). In fact, I’m changing my post to say chic instead of pretty. Thank you so much for that wording Kristen! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Kendall! I bought this top last year, but it really doesn’t surprise me that H&M brought it back. I find they do that with a lot of their items. They’ll just bring it back in a different colour, or with a slightly different detail.

    Yet another reason why I have a hard time getting rid of my clothes…they always come back in style at some point. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think the horse shirt adds some whimsy to the outfit and the color of the skirt and purse are so feminine. Nice picks.

    Cheers,

      Ha ha, you are so right Tammy! I went several years without wearing this skirt, but I just couldn’t part with it. Now, it’s right on trend. Another reason why buying classic pieces pays off.

    Such an utterly adorable outfit! Loving how you’re sticking to a mainly neutral to pastel color palette; very sophisticated. I’m pretty much in love with your awesome horse-printed blouse and the flare of that skater skirt only adds to the overall femininity of your look. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Whatever American decided we needed to stop spelling colour the British way is a total jerk! It’s so much cooler your way- I guess I need to move to Canada!

    I love this top- it is TOO cute, and pairing it with that super girly vintage ๐Ÿ˜‰ skirt is perfect!

    I love this outfit! How do you like the Edie bag from J. Crew? I’ve been thinking about which bag to get from there since I really like the material.

    • Jenny
      September 13, 2012

      Thanks so much Irene, and thanks for visiting! I must say that I love the Edie bag! I love the shape and structure, and this lavender colour is gorgeous, however I really love all of the colours that they came out with. It’s a really well made bag, and the leather is surprisingly durable. I’ve spilled water on it and was very fearful that it would stain this light colour, but it completely disappeared. It’s light in weight too, which is a nice change from all of my other heavy bags. The only thing that would make this bag even better was if the strap was a little longer to be able to wear as a crossbody bag too, but I do like the lady-like look of this shorter strap. I would highly recommend this great bag from J.Crew!
