The Modern-70s-40s Landgirl
Today was spent in the lab and working in the field (literally in a field, and trampling through brambles again) so my outfit was planned partially around that, and I specifically worked it around a pair of very comfortable shoes. I clocked up a lot of steps yesterday and my feet were killing me! These leather ones from Clarks are much more comfortable, even if they took ages to break in.
I wore all modern clothing as is my preference for lab work (I promise there will be more outfits with real vintage items when I'm spending less time doing messy things and climbing in brambles!) and went for a sort of 40s landgirl inspired look.
I had decided to try a new setting pattern though, and it didn't come out looking the best (I tend to forget that I don't usually get new hairstyles right on the first go!) and although I can definitely see the potential in it, it was better today to just throw it up in a ponytail and be done with it. By the time I'd put on the scarf, I was getting much more 70s vibes from this outfit than 40s. It just goes to show how much difference your hairstyle can make to a vintage look.
