Fashion Memories

I’m not gonna lie to you: I have a shit ton of clothes. I mean, when you don’t pay over $10 for anything...things can get a little out of hand. And ok, don’t judge me but- I almost never repeat outfits. Ever. I mean suuuuuure, I will wear any item in my closet a million times, but always in a brand new way. I think it’s because my brain creates memories based on what I was wearing. Like, “Britt remember that random party we went to that one time?” Why yes I do…because I wore that lime green dress with my crazy blazer and cowboy boots. Or, “Hey girl, remember when we went to those random bars in Fullerton?” Yes, I remember because I wore my vintage Philippines tee. The more variety I have in my day-to-day ensembles, the more likely it is that my brain will store random memories that would otherwise be deemed uneventful. On especially eventful days, I like to don an entirely fresh and brand-spanking-new look...which was exactly the case with today’s ensemble. After all, it’s not every day Boyfriend and I road-trip it across the desert to Vegas. Except now this ensemble is extra-special because this is what I was wearing when he asked me to marry him<3 He loves me despite my VPL ;)


Thrifted button down. Thrifted tennis skirt. Thrifted booties. F21 jewelry.


Until next time, 

Brittany

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! So pumped for you lady! My first thought is how the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck are you going to pick out a wedding dress? You're going vintage right? Vintage inspired? Omg. I'm being one of those girls. You just got engaged...maybe you haven't thought about it....(you totally have).

    You nailed this look. Love the different stripes. And the cowboy/mule/booties??? Yes. Yes. A million times yes!

  5. #1: CONGRATULATIONS

    obviously

    saw all this jazz on insta and am so happy for you
    dunno whether it's recent or not, but definitely exciting news regardless.

    So funny, I'm about to publish a post about the sentimental value that clothes hold, and how that's more important for some of us than others. (probably why I'm a hoarder).

    I would NEVER be able to throw this outfit away. too precious.

    these pictures are INSANE. so crisp, so clear, so well lit. YOu look like a hip princess with an awesome tennis skirt and fantastic striped blouse.

    Love the way you've styled your hair here too. the cut and letting it down goes great with the ensemble.

    yay.
    love you guys.
