Shear Floral Blouse

This is my leisurely weekend look. I'm in the city a few days a week so I tend to dress up a bit, and when I work from home I can wear whatever I want! So on the weekends I try to find that happy medium. (Although I love getting dressed up...)

I found this shear floral blouse about a month ago at an open air vintage market in Berkeley. It's linen, super light and easy to wear. The embroidering on the edges makes this blouse special, it's all hand stitched. Embroidery is all the craze this season, everyone is looking for a top, skirt, or dress with that special detailing. Vintage pieces are great if you are looking for pieces with that special flair. You'll also probably be the only person around with that piece. It's a win, win. Check your local vintage store for similar blouses. Try them on before you buy them.... Some new options are below.

My jeans are from my favorite denim shop in the Bay Area St.Lightning. I've spoken about them here. They have the best vintage denim selection. Vintage denim fits me 10x better than new denim so 90% of the time I'm in vintage jeans. Plus just look at the quality of the material. Are we moving backwards or what?

My bag is from another local vintage shop in San Francisco. There were multiple people eyeing it, so I had to snag it up ASAP. Luckily I got it! It's been a great everyday bag and perfect for summer / spring and for many seasons to come.
