A 5 Minute Vintage Look


plus size vintage retro fashion from Va-Voom Vintage
There are days that I spend a silly amount of time getting ready but more often than not, I throw something together in a matter of minutes, get the kids dressed and I'm out the door. Yesterday was one of those days.

I had just pin curled my hair for this weekend so I put on a scarf and some equally colorful separates and accessories. I found this courdory green skirt when Bunny was in town this spring and I absolutely love it- especially the pockets! Rhys had just woken up from a nap and needed a mommy snuggle.

I  took a tip from Dita too- for days that you can't spend an hour putting on makeup, just slick on some lipstick and put on some sunglasses. Instantly glamorous and no one knows that I'm a hot mess under those glasses!

  1. Dear gal, I don't think you could look like a "hot mess" if you tried. No matter what you're sporting, I've always thought of you as one of the most stylish, beautifully attired people I know (our styles are relatively similar and I've drawn so much inspiration from you over the years).

    Love this fun, colourful, speedy outfit! I have a green vintage corduroy skirt that I just love, too (yet another similarity! :D).

  2. Great look! Love thu colors! And it looks very comfortable!

  3. I'm with Jessica- I don't think you *Could* look like a "hot mess" :) You are always very elegant!

  4. Really love this look! And I agree, you always look fab. :)

  5. Beautiful! x

  6. I love this outfit. It really looks pretty on you..

  7. I adore this complete outfit! The bold colours are so flattering, and its the little touches like the pretty lipstick and vibrant bangles that "fancy up" an outfit so quickly! xx

  8. J'adore! (just hand over the blouse...)

  9. Those shoes! Spectacular!!! I wish I looked that put together on an off day. You look beautiful!

  10. Drooling over the shoes, bangles, and headband girl. You are too cute for words, chile.

  11. I've been drooling over those shoes for some time, but I can't find a sizing guide to figure out how they run. Would you say they are true to size or need to be sized up? I love easy, practical, and cute vintage looks. It makes it so much easier to chase after my own four little rugrats.

  12. I love this look. Those shoes are great! I think about that Dita trick too. You pulled it off to a tee:)) Lovely outfit!

  13. Adorable!! Love this look on you!

  14. Great outfit! I like the shoes most of all.

  15. The lipstick and sunglasses thing is my favourite for those days when I'm pushed for time or just can't be bothered. It's such a great look.
