Vintage Jeans

The Scoop

Give me all the vintage jeans! These jeans I’m wearing are 14 years old. I remember buying them and several others just about like them. They are Lucky brand and fit better than any jeans I have ever had. They are starting to get a little thin at the knees so I try not to wear them too much. I often watch for this brand in the thrift shops and have a couple of times found some that I added to my collection of jeans. Yes I collect jeans! Ha.

My Outfit

I added a colorful summer top that I bought last year that can be worn off my shoulders. Along with that I wore a pair of old sandals from Target bought a couple of years ago. I had the sandals in a bag to give away but ended up pulling them out for one or two more wears.

The bag is from our local thrift store and in perfect shape. I am seeing these exact macrame bags in the stores for much more than I paid. My necklace is at least 20 years old from Chico’s. It is so different. It is a pink stone shaped as a snake coiled up.

Back In The Mountains

It is so fun being back in the mountains and in the country. Although we saw a bear at the front door last week so I am nervous when I go out on my hikes. But there is something about being outdoors that gives me peace. And the smell of pine is so refreshing and uplifting. Its a beautiful place to be in the summer! See the picture of our bear visitor in my last post here.

Summer Sweaters

Sweaters are always so fabulous!

the scoop

I love summer sweaters. The feel of all cotton is so comfortable and the look is casual. They are perfect for throwing on over a tank top or tee in the cool evenings. I also wear them with skirts, shorts or even over a swim suit. 

Here are links to some pretty summer sweaters all on sale!

Also sharing links to some fun shoes and bags!

my look

This free people sweater is from last season but it gets a lot of use still. I love it so much I have it is a soft white too. Here I am wearing it over a lace bralette and pairing it with a really old pair of boot cut jeans. I have had the jeans now 12 or 13 years. They are Lucky Brand which is still one of my favorite brands next to 7 For All Mankind. I am wearing a pair of two tone sandals that have orange and tan leather straps. I have so much orange in my closet these shoes go with almost everything I own. For a bag I am carrying my thrift shop find from a couple of years ago. It was in new condition and so cute! For jewelry I am wearing a Mexican Fire Opal, hands down my favorite necklace.


After a week of no Internet while we were setting up our house in the city I am back in the mountains escaping the 100 degree temps. We finally got the Internet connected just before I left so next time I'm down there I will be able to keep with my posts. I can't believe I missed two posts, a rare thing indeed!

Now I am getting our house in the mountains ready for house guests. My son and grandson are coming to visit for a week and we have so much planned. My grandson and I are big on snake hunting, rock collecting and making root beer floats! He is a real outdoors type just like me. We may even do some huckleberry picking. I know we will spend time at the lake swimming and sandcastle building too. My son and I will do some trail running and wine tasting. We always have such a good time together, he is so much like me it is crazy. We plan on doing a lot of cooking too.
