Opposites Atrract...

Well, today the outfit in my photographs is all about the attraction of opposites- a prepster blazer, a vintage brooch, and modern beachy shorts! I'm all about mixing it up with the individual elements, and some how managing to fuse the different trends together! I just bought my acid washed shorts at Kohls this weekend along with a bunch of other pairs of shorts, and this pair was my favorite because of their originality! The blazer is from a consignment shop from when my sister made state times in swimming (Love ya, Sissy!), and the tie in my belt loops came with it. The brooch is from an elderly ladies garage sale and I absolutely love it with the thrifted pearls I wore during my schools 1920's day! I can't wait until summer, or atleast spring- I guess it shoes because I am wearing shorts and its 51 degrees out! Yikes! So I couldn't take that many pictures and I don't really like what came out, but I still love the outfit!
