Green Vintage Sweater & a Houndstooth Skirt

I forgot I had this sweater! I thrifted it around a year ago and it ended up in a bag of cold-weather clothes that I had yet to completely empty this year. It's such a pretty color, but I had a little bit of trouble finding a skirt to pair with it. (Now I'm thinking maybe a floral skirt next time?) I also didn't remember it's a vintage sweater, which is a nice surprise! The tag looks 50's early 60's. I found what I think is the same exact sweater style in pastel polka dots on Etsy. 

Anyway, I decided the bright green sweater needed to be paired with my black and blue houndstooth skirt, which is also a thrift find. Both the skirt and top were $1 or less. Hooray bargains! 

I just really liked the colors in this outfit. Blue and green are a great match in my book!

It was a gray smokey eyeshadow type of day. I just bought a couple Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadows so I was playing with Audacious Asphalt. 


nail polish: china glaze - stone cold


Fortunately I have no plans for today (except possibly working out if I convince myself). After two very late nights of staying up and doing school crap I need to sleep in! 

Happy Wednesday!

That vintage 60's sweater is pretty and complements your pretty red hair nicely. It would be nice to wear on Saint Patrick's Day. Your eye makeup and big smile are pretty too. I like the thrifted skirt and tights (from Kmart) that you paired your sweater with in this outfit.

I LOVE houndstooth, seriously, it just hit me not that long ago, just love it! Any who great thrift finds, vintage stuff is always fun because that item had a whole other life before it was in your hands. I like to imagine what the other wearer(s) did while wearing the piece :)

I hear you about sleep... probably going to go sleep now. Can't school be over already? xD
