Barnyard Blues

Today’s looks wasn’t planned to be “themed” but after I put this outfit together I thought, what the hell, go big or go home. So here I am at the barn, a perfect back drop to my country chic ensemble. All that’s missing is the pitchfork.

I picked up this checkered top up in preparation for my upcoming Calgary trip. It’s a nice light weight cotton in contrast to the thick flannel that these shirts typically come in which is ideal for summer. It came in a variety of colours and the bonus? It was on sale! So obviously I picked up two. 

This jean skirt is sooo old. I think the last time I wore this was when I was 15. I’m ashamed to admit that I have a matching jean jacket stored somewhere in the back of my closet. I’m not exactly sure why I kept these items around for so long, but I’m glad this skirt gets to see the light of day again. 

I think the reason this skirt has lasted the test of time is because of its classic pencil skirt shape. I find articles of vintage clothing that really work well today are the ones that have a modern silhouette even if the print and fabric are out of date.  

Right now it seems that everywhere I look, everyone is wearing jean from skirts, shirts to jackets. Although I will get some use out this jean skirt during the summer, I’m not sure the jean jacket will be as lucky. Even though it's in mint condition, I just can't see past the fact that the shape overwhelms my petite frame. I think it might be time to part ways. 

Look! A goat! Most of them ignored me but this little guy approached me to say hello. I leave for Calgary tonight but I have some outfit blogs that are scheduled to post while I'm away so make sure you continue to stop by and visit.

Thanks for following and happy shopping!
