There is a double mix in this outfit! Prints, and vintage & new! Both items I choose from Mary 5. Before I started blogging, I almost only wore plain clothes. No prints, at most a dash or a polka dot once, but it didn’t get any further than that for me. I just like a simple clean look. But…..yes there is always a but, in the course of my blogging life I learned to appreciate the prints more and more.
Vintage and new.
In fact, I’m a big fan of print mixing. That doesn’t mean I wear prints often though. I still like a plain outfit. But when I do wear prints, I like to wear them on top of each other. Learned from other bloggers. My favorite prints to mix are the stripe and the polka dot, but also the stripe and a floral print. For a collaboration with Mary5 I was allowed to choose two items and I immediately fell in love with the cardigan. Not my style at all.
I mean have you ever seen me wearing so many colors in one outfit? But this really seems like a cardigan that you can enjoy so much all spring. Because it can be worn on anything and those colors just make you happy. The cardigan is new, the skirt is vintage. In my eyes such a polks dot skirt is so very joyfull! I can wear it with a red top in summer! (not that I have a red top….oeps) I think the boots and belt add a bit of coolness and casualness, is that a word? I am wearing a very colorful ring that fits perfectly with the cardigan.
Vintage clothing from Mary 5.
On the Mary5 site you will generally find vintage and handmade items, but also a few new ones. So there is a choice for everyone. Run by Mary Wu, an avid fashionista who believes there is much more creativity in handmade clothing. Well it is! And in pre loved items too. We all think better about what we buy, don’t we?
And buying pre-loved clothes is a great choice! I never would have thought that I like second hand clothing so much as I do now. I don’t buy trousers and shoes second hand though, that’s a step to far for me. Does that make sence at all?? Thank you Mary for this great collaboration and I wish you a lot of success with your beautiful company!
