50’s Spring

embroidered cardigan green plaid pants black oxfords by 14 shades of grey

It must be the influence from Brooklyn and its 1950’s costumes, because this is the most explicitly 50’s-looking outfit I’ve worn in a while (seriously, it looks like something Betty wears on season 1 of Mad Men.) But I haven’t worn this cardigan in a while, and it just seems too perfect in the spring weather with all the rain and the new leaves and the flowers blooming. And when you have something that is so vintage-looking, you can’t help but go with that vintage feel. I tried to modernize it with my oxfords, but now I wish I had embraced the 50’s look and worn a pair of flats instead.

    I’d say it’s a winner, Salazar. I like it! And how ironic that I’m wearing my green polo shirt that matches with your green plaid pants today. I’m on my primary colors kick this week, which I’ll explain next Wednesday when you do your style inspired by books post.

  2. This is fabulous. I love the pairing of the cardigan with the pants; it’s just a great modern vintage look.

  3. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Wow! What a cardigan!

    Oh I love that cardie- so pretty! My Nan lent me a beautiful navy blue embroidered cardigan with pearly buttons and a sailor bib at the back- it was so lovely! I WISH I still had it- the worst thing is, I have no idea what happened to it!x
