I'm back, everyone!
Please forgive my temporary absence. I was traveling and caught up in something of a family emergency, plus I was immersed in writing two 30-page papers for grad school and once it was over I was briefly convinced I didn't want to look at a laptop screen ever again. But I am thrilled to be back, and able to catch up on all the amazing blog posts I have missed -- as well as styling some new outfits of my own.
The highlight of this outfit is, for me, the jacket. Designed by Nicolette Mason for Mynt 1792 as part of their epic Blogger Collection, I have had my eye on it since its release. I was saving up to buy it for myself as a birthday gift in March, but a lovely person beat me to it. This is one of the most amazing presents I have received in some time, as it is perfectly kindred with my style. I adore that although the jacket is classified as a "moto" piece, the rose color and golden studs radiate femininity, giving it a "strong-minded yet fashion-forward" feel that unfortunately is still considered a paradox to a lot of people out there. The fact that it makes me feel very '40s-esque in combination with my high-waist polka dot trousers is a huge bonus as well. The pants are, of course, ModCloth. As always, they feel authentically vintage rather than vintage-inspired, which is something I always looks for in my clothes.
I had Ronnie Lane's version of "Amelia Earhart" stuck in my head the whole time the photos were being taken, probably because there is something of an aviation feel to the whole ensemble. That makes me smile, too.
