What’s your favorite vintage/thrift store find? I really love finding old jewelry like this brooch or pretty earrings. Last year I did a few posts wearing this brooch and I recently found it and remembered some outfit ideas I had that I wanted to share with you. I’ve already worn it as a barrette here, and as an embellishment on a shirt here, but I wanted to show you how you could use something like this on a normal summer outfit. I like the idea of mixing old school professional attire with modern touches to create a high/low old/new balance. When I was in college and high school I did a fair amount of shopping at second hand stores. I love the idea of finding something that’s  high quality and beautiful at a good price. I still peruse the thrift stores every once in awhile for a good find, but lately I haven’t had much luck. Comment below to tell me what you have found or hope to find!

P.S. Wolfgang’s outfit is compliments of his sweet auntie + uncle (my hubby’s sister). His little bowtie seemed a little too dressy so I almost took it off, but we decided he looked too cute to take it off completely! I found a similar 4th of July ready one at Saks here (insert heart-eye emoticon).

xo,

Kellie
