Hi Love Kittens! I would ask about your Valentine's plans but I prefer to skip to more important questions. What are you wearing?! As mentioned in my gift guide post, I love celebrating love and any reason to play dress up is golden in my books.
I decided to put together a casual retro-modern look for you gals because Mildred, my #RetroAlterEgo wouldn't have it any other way! While I own several vintage pieces, I also shop for modern items and thoroughly enjoy the moments when I combine items that transport me back in time while keeping me connected to present-day fashion. It's how I express my unique sense of style. If you don't own vintage pieces, have no fear! I created this retro-modern pinup inspired look with mostly modern pieces. The only vintage items worn are my earrings, scarf, cross-body purse and apple watch (just kidding)! I'll provide links to items I'm wearing and alternatives where necessary at the end of this post.
I stuck to a more traditional valentine color palette with red as my focal color but kept it fun by mixing polka-dots and stripes. If you're new to mixing prints, this combo is a safe way to begin.
Valentine's falls on a Sunday this year and if you follow me on Instagram you'll notice how much I enjoy treating myself to ice cream on Sundays. This outfit is perfect for a casual afternoon stroll to indulge in your favorite sweet treat or even a low-key girls day out. Where would you wear this Retro-Modern Pinup style outfit?
