An Outfit a Week | The Pursuit of Hippieness

Utility jacket and fur collar, vintage. Pants and purse, H&M. Boots, Kenneth Cole.

We took these photos in beautiful Provence! I couldn’t get enough of that flower wall. The temperatures didn’t quite reflect it, but it reminded me that spring is on its way.

I have had the best luck thrifting here! It’s gotten to a [dangerous] point where I go every week. Still, a jacket for 5 euros isn’t too shabby.

The pants are also a recent acquisition. Sara already has two pairs (she got them in black as well) and I may have to follow her lead. They are obscenely comfortable, which is why we affectionately refer to them as our “train pants.” The print is also really fun and I can’t wait to wear them with just a tanktop and some wooden platform sandals.

Speaking of H&M, I purchased that black purse a week before I left for Paris, and it was one of the best ideas ever. I got it for $15 or so, and it is the perfect going out/ travel hybrid. Easy to carry around, but with zips and folds it keeps everything safe. Aside from a little strap breakage that had to be reinforced with needle, thread, and super glue, it’s not bad quality, either!

I know I keep waxing poetic about those boots, but I need to keep waxing poetic about those boots. They survived a very rainy weekend and some Provencal hiking. Essentially, they survive everything.
