Strikingly Sixties


   Have you ever been trying to come up with an outfit and had a wardrobe epiphany? A burst of creative fashion genius? I had one a couple of days ago, and these are the results.






  Okay, so maybe this doesn't look like genius, but it was a new idea for me. On Thursday morning I was thinking about layering a shirt under my sheath dress - I highly recommend this to make a warm and classy outfit. I had seen my floral peasant top in the closet and decided to put it under my dress. Adding black tights and black flats, I made a 1960's inspired outfit that combined boho and classic styles. Blowing out a little flip in my hair and wearing liquid eyeliner also captured the era. Last but not least, a double-breasted jacket provided coziness and style. Groovy!

Outfit Details: Blouse ~ Thrift Store; Dress ~ Kohl's; Tights ~ ? ; Shoes ~ Target

 God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.
 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Psalm 46

  1. Beautiful Psalm, Paige! I *love* this outfit on you! It reminds me some of some of the outfits Ninety-Nine wore in Get Smart in at least one season she had her hair styled similarly to yours as well.

  6. Paige, l like the flowered peasant shirt. Your black sheath dress is perfect to layer and goes with any color you feel in the mood for that day. You look very nice with the black eyeliner! So true, God is always guiding us and helping us, we just need to listen and trust him. Blessings Stephanie M.
