(girl) Scout

I know, you guys were expecting the whole Moonrise Kingdom which is usually my thing but in the spirit of the overarch-ing summer-of-boyhood vibes I'm feeling I actually put this together thinking of Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird.  I've been a little bit obsessed with Scout visually since I saw the 1962 film in a 5th form english class and absolutely loved Mary Badham and it came back to haunt me in the miniature tweenwear collection I designed for a scholarship and...in this outfit!  Not sure why, but somehow this all came together in a odd Grease x Scout crossover but I love it.  Nothing beats a little tomboy chic when your feet need a little rest from heels (or when you left all your heels in your dorm closet because you magically rapid packed in 30 mins on your last day). Photobucket I've wanted a denim jumpsuit for so long and when I finally got this one it was like love at first sight.  I did originally want to redye/bleach it into a more acidic looking aurora print similar to galaxy print only with a much lighter pastel palette but I've been re-embracing minimalism in certain ways and I quite like it how it is right now.  Just to toughen up the playsuit, I threw on my favorite leather jacket that has been a staple for about three-four years now and paired it with new ankle boots I scored from the Glassons outlet for about $15 which I will probably wear religiously until they break because they are equal parts beautiful and comfy.  Photobucket

When it comes to accessorizing, my staple is always a short necklace or collar paired with simple wrist cuff.  As much as I love rings, they are ridiculously impractical when working with my hands.

  1. I didn't catch the ham ref... Hahaha! Maybe because I'm from Belgium and never really got involved in scouts.
    Really loving the outfit! It's been a while since I last read your blog, but it's always a pleasure to come back. Love your style soooo much.

    Love,
    Jolien

  19. I completely forgot about Scout (and never would have thought of her as a style icon) until reading this post. There is a very classic midwestern/ rural southern vibe to this outfit and you pulled it off beautifully.

  24. The jumpsuit is way cool. I had mind for the longest time to get a jumpsuit similar to this but a wee bit more form fitting...but I never found it. But short suits are really on trend!
