Vintage Lacoste Cardigan, Leopard Print Top, & Corduroy Shorts

This vintage Lacoste cardigan and my leopard print blouse is becoming a favorite combination. I don't know what it is about leopard and this shade of blue but I love it. I found this cardigan while scouring Goodwill sweaters in Illinois over winter break. The color is wonderful and the thing is in great shape for being late 50s/early 60s.

I wore almost this same outfit before with my high-waisted skinny jeans so I figured it'd look equally good with my trusty corduroy shorts. I'm not sure which outfit I liked better but I'm sure I'll be wearing a version of this again!

P.S. Here's yet another new hair bow made by my cousin. It's so plaid-tastic!

cardigan: lacoste - thrifted | shorts: forever 21 | blouse: thrifted | boots: thrifted | necklace: forever 21 | bow: handmade





After writing this post I just realized most of this outfit is thrifted. I always love when that happens! Plus it was comfortable which is always a plus. It's hard to make an outfit with these corduroy shorts uncomfortable though...

I hope you guys are having a nice week. I'm slowly getting used to having only a couple hours of non-working, non-sleeping, non-commuting time per day. (Being adult-ish is hard!)

haha, "adult-ish." I like that term a ton. This is a comfy and cute outfit--you always look so cool in blue! I guess the contrast against your hair is nice. :D Good luck on your busy, busy week!

that sweater was an AMAZING find! can't believe it's from the 50s/60s. i agree that it looks fantastic w/the leopard print.

The quirky-ness of your style just keeps getting more and more awesome! I would never think to pair leopard print and blue, but it goes so great on you! I imagine not so great on myself.

Your cousin makes these bows? Man, they're adorable! :D I love this shade of blue too! It's the only shade that doesn't make me look like a pale freak :D
