Modern Day Peasant




Thrifted Vest (similar) | Topshop Dress borrowed from Marisa (similar) | Gabriella Rocha Brown Booties (similar) | Forever 21 Feather Ring (similar) | Cat Ring c/o Chicnova | Arrow Ring c/o Kitsch

I walked into work feeling pretty good about this outfit until I looked in the bathroom mirror and suddenly realized I'd been transported back to the Middle Ages. I blame it on early mornings and poor wardrobe judgments. Then again, there's nothing wrong with looking like a peasant...right? Surprisingly, one of my co-workers actually loved this outfit since she loves storybook looks. As long as you have one fan, that's all you need. ;)

If I had more time with Marisa's dress, I probably would have ditched the vest and went for an oversized sweater. You only learn through experimenting, right? Check out how she styled it down below - I adore it with the blazer.

  3. I like this outfit and wouldn't have thought "middle ages" at all. I see why it has that flavor (with the vest-as-bodice). But the horses on the back make it totally fun and modern. And are those fox earrings? Love.

  6. Wonderful outfit! I love that swingy floral print Topshop dress and the way you model it. If I were a dress and skirt designer I'd love it if you modeled my haute couture. You styled that dress beautifully with the thrifted vest to complete a fabulous look. I love it.

  8. I love the waistcoat! I used to wear one all the time but sadly my boobs grew (not all bad) and it wouldnt fit anymore. I love wearing them with girlish things for the contrast and you are making me want to go back to it again. Yours is just gorgeous and really unusual.

  10. I actually really like the look, though it is a bit- sweeter/twee than you usually go for (but in a good way. Like birds help you clean your house because you are a princess etc.)
