Style: Scouts Honor

I found this old Boy Scout shirt when I was digging through my closet and decided I really wanted to wear it with something sparkly and girly for contrast.

Casual Style: That 70s Girl

The 70's is one of my favorite decades in terms of style influence. High-waisted pants, polyester leisure suits, and fluffy 'fros? Hell yeah, you jive turkey! Note to self: Must refrain from watching reruns of Good Times before "DY-NO-MITE!" becomes a part of my everyday lexicon. Jeans, Grey Ant; shirt, thrifted; shoes, vintage; purse, Coccinelle; scarf, handmade
