(I was going to give this post a more pun-y title of “Fall into Spring” but decided that was too cheesy.)
In my post on Wednesday, I tried to add some colors and floral to the outfit to make it more “springy”. The weather still couldn’t make up its mind though, so in the end I just said, fuck it, I’m just going to dress like it was still fall/winter. I’m much more of an autumn person than a spring person anyway. Besides, I really wanted to wear this new owl brooch and these pair of wool pants (a hand-me-down from my mom), and neither of them really screams “spring”.
It’s funny how my style is coming back full circle to the vintage-inspired looks of the blog’s early days. Luckily, trends are coming back, too – it’s now all cottagecore and dark academia, which are just different versions of twee (not that my style was ever that twee.) I was looking at my archive and found this outfit, which I’d be happy to wear today (yes, including the big collar, which is trendy again). So here I recreated the outfit with what I have now, and added some current touches – blazer and suspenders. The suspenders are bit much, but the skirt is slightly large for me and the suspenders are the best way to hold it up, plus they added a dark academia/menswear touch to the outfit, so I’m not complaining.
