{Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge} – retro cadet


So according to my mother, this outfit makes me look like I’m an air force cadet, 1940’s style.

Which is perfectly fine by me. ๐Ÿ™‚


This weeks Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge was ‘scarves’. Since I always feel a bit odd wearing a decorative scarf around my neck, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out this tutorialcar for a vintage-style back roll using a head scarf. And can I just say, this tutorial is fabulous! So easy, and it stayed in place all day (it’s starting to look a little bit fluffy in these photos, right at the end of the day, but I reckon that’s pretty good going for it to last this long). Definitely the easiest vintage-ish hair style I’ve come across.
