Before my shopping ban, I went on a shopping binge with the resolve of only buying either secondhand, vintage, or ethically manufactured. I found out about an Etsy shop called Peneloppe Vintage and fell in love with all the pieces! Anne, the shop owner is amazing at finding the best vintage pieces. She ships them from her home base in France and I feel like I have a little piece of France with me now. I got these jeans and a men’s blazer (to be featured on another post) along with the sweetest handwritten note from Anne who wished me well for giving these pieces a good new home. If you are a vintage lover, Etsy shops are definitely a good place to look!

I’ve been loving the look of high waisted mom jeans and these jeans are the ultimate 90s mom jeans! to be honest, they’re a tad long but I LOVE the looseness, the high waist, the button fly closure, and the authentic vintage silhouette. Plus they are super comfortable! Like, they support my food baby belly kind of comfortable. Peneloppe Vintage only sells one-offs so obviously these jeans are obviously sold out, but she has a LOT of vintage jeans for very fair prices.

Even though I love this jacket, I haven’t had too many opportunities to wear it. The weather in DC hasn’t really allowed for it - the days here are either too hot or too cold without many days in between that would make this jacket perfectly acceptable. The few days that are perfect for this jacket, I grab it as quickly as I can. I really love the cropped length of it and it pairs amazingly with high waisted jeans. The color is the perfect neutral and that suede is super soft.
