Outfit of the Day: 80’s Prep meets 90’s Grunge

Today I mixed my decades! On the top half, 1980’s popped collar prep featuring my Brooks Brother’s BOYS navy blazer and Jcrew white and pink oxford. There is something about a preppy blazer and that color pink that is so 1980’s (in a good way – I hope).  Then on the bottom half, my ratty old Levi 501’s that Dustin found in a thrift store (for himself) which I promptly stole and cut off to the most unflattering length that I could manage. The high heeled penny loafers feminize the outfit while tying it all together.

I am wearing one of my favorite gemstones ever – green amethyst. I actually buy more green amethyst than the traditional purple amethyst. It is so clear and sparkly with just a hint of mint green. It is so neutral but not boring at all. This is a great alternative for people with February birthdays that don’t love their birthstone.

Necklace: Green amethyst and vintage “V” chain necklace by Xenia Mara.

These earrings are so beautiful the stone is cut with tons of little facets so the light dances through.

Earrings: Green amethyst and vintage circle chain earrings by Xenia Mara.

My jeans are about 3 sizes too big for me and thus not the most flattering but, I like them!

Bracelets: (right hand) Pearl and vintage chain bracelet by Xenia Mara. (left hand) Rose quartz and bronze bangle by Lulu Frost, Seiko watch (personal), 14K gold filled bangle cuffs by Hitchcock Madrona.

I hope everyone is having a good late summer – we can’t complain about the weather here in Seattle. But fall is just around the corner (secretly excited).

XOXO
