Sweet as Honey

We Live Upstairs Sweet as Honey Outfit

I'm gonna make a statement and say that this is definitely the most retro outfit I've ever worn. The 70s collar, the palette of the plaid, the socks + loafers combo; each piece adds a vintage touch to any outfit on its own, but together, they transport the wearer back to 1955 in a flash. Just pack my lunch and call me Susie!

Matt found this skirt for me last year while he was being a good sport at a vintage shop in Nashville. I felt warm and fuzzy then because he was able to pin down my style(s) so well, and I get the same feeling whenever I wear it now because of all the warm experiences I've had in that city that are tied up in this skirt. It's really great when an obsession can double as a memory book. Fuel to the fire, y'all! : )

  2. You have incredible hair! Mine used to be that length but it had a mind of it's own, so I cut it all off. Yours is perfect :)

    1. Oh mine definitely has a mind of its own, especially when I let it air dry. The flat iron is my best friend.

  4. Cute outfit! I love when pieces of clothing hold great memories. I can't seem to part with the dress that I wore with my boyfriend on our first date over 4 years ago because of the memory. I never even wear it :P
