80's Nod

My childhood came forth in yesterday's outfit. And I loved it. I absolutely would have worn this in 1989, age 7. I didn't get a close up my earrings, but they are hearts as well. Steve bought them for me on a business trip to San Francisco...or San Diego(?) My mom had a pair identical to these when I was a kid, only they were navy and gold. And I know I had a sweater just like this one, only it was pastel colors.

The jacket (also seen here)...imitation 80's vintage from Urban Outfitters. I pretty much adore everything at Urban Outfitter's, but don't usually have the bucks to spend on stuff that looks like it was bought at a thrift store. In a wonderful display of retail kindness, this baby was on the clearance rack for $10. Niiiiice.

Coat: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: CSO (Deb) many moons ago
Sweater: H&M
Skirt: JCrew
Tights: ???
Shoes: Kohls

There are just so many things I love about this outfit! The sweater is adorable... I love the hearts. The bright yellow with the grey sweater is perfect, and that jacket?! So adorable, and doubly awesome seeing as it was $10 :) I love how it contrasts with the yellow skirt too. You are rockin' 80s style, girl!
