I think we can all agree that when I find a clothing item I love, I wear it over and over and over again. Can we all take a moment to appreciate my love for this amazing Target sweater and that troll on Instagram who called me out for wearing it "too much to be a fashion blogger." Sorry, I'm not sorry, but I've already worn this vintage Tina Turner sweatshirt at least 3 times in the last week. What can I say, it's THE PERFECT vintage sweater.
All of my life I remember my parents having this cedar chest in their bedroom that held a random assortment of things, mostly my baby clothes. Somehow after their divorce, all of that stuff ended up shoved into the dresser in my room at my dad's house. That's where I found this gem. I've actually had it hanging in my closet for close to a year now but didn't think to wear it until recently when we went running around NYC.
My mom and her twin sister, so the story goes, purchased this sweater at a concert for $50 by splitting the cost. Needless to say, I think they both really liked the fact that I decided to pull it out and become obsessed with it.
I've never really been "in to" vintage clothing, if we're being honest, so I had absolutely no idea how to style a vintage sweatshirt when I finally decided to wear this vintage sweatshirt. I honestly have never even purchased a vintage item of clothing before until Valentine's Day when I got Justin this amazing leather coat from Etsy!
I loved how easy this sweatshirt is so I knew that when I decided to plan a vintage sweatshirt outfit that it needed to be effortlessly chic. Of course, I went with my go-to boyfriend jeans. I love the relaxed look of them with the sweatshirt. Paired with a pair of killer black boots, you can't go wrong! I also wore both of these pieces with my white athletic sneakers in the city and a camel coat thrown over top.
I think the thing I love most about this vintage sweatshirt are the patches on either sleeve. This vintage sweatshirt is so unique that I'm not sure where to even look for another one like it! The pop of red also makes it fun so you know I had to pair it with a nice red lip.
