I’m thinking about starting a new feature on the ol’ blog – Throwback Thursdays. Of course, I realize this is not actually that original. #TBT has been a thing as long as we’ve been calling the pound sign a hashtag (I’m guessing), but as I was cleaning out some of my pictures, I realized there are quite a few outfits I’ve never blogged. At this point, they’re either going to go unblogged altogether, or they’ll have to wait until a year from now when the clothes are back in season, and you’ll totally be able to tell that it’s an old picture – both by my hair color/length, and by my Georgia backgrounds.
So, in that spirit, here is an outfit I wore sometime last winter/early spring – don’t you just feel colder looking at it? I was really quite proud of myself for this one. I don’t know why a sweater under a puffy vest seemed so ingenious at the time, but the whole combo turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. Except for the statement necklace, it looks like I actually might be going to do something outside!
Unfortunately, I learned when I was in Nashville in January last year that the preppy puffy vest is not nearly as popular with the hipster crowd in Tennessee as it is with the old stock Southerners of North Georgia. So, my style may have to evolve some in my new home.
How about where you live – are puffy vests celebrated or scorned? Have you broken yours out for the season – or your tall boots, for that matter? Will you be okay if I post TBT pictures of shorts in November? I want to hear your thoughts!
