My Favorite Outfit: Katie from Butterfly Loves Snapdragons

A note from Sammi: Hi, friends!  I'm back in town from my trip, but because of my computer snafu, I'm a little behind on my own posts, so I have another installment of the "My Favorite Outfit" mini-series for you today!  I've asked some of my favorite blogger ladies to contribute a guest post about their absolute favorite outfits from their own blogs, and today's guest blogger is sweet Katie from Butterfly Loves Snapdragons!  Katie has an incredible eye for vintage fashion, and her hat collection is to die for!  I had a feeling Katie would showcase both of these in her timeless outfit of choice!


Hello there, everyone! I am so glad to have a guest post on Sammi's blog because she is one of my very favorite people I've never met. I absolutely adore her style and get so much inspiration from her each time I visit! Not to mention she is one of the sweetest bloggers out there, both in style and personality. 


It was a difficult decision to choose my favorite outfit! Honestly, my style varies so much from day to day that it was tough to hone it into one look. However, this black and blue combo I wore last November tops my list as a favorite to wear. I wore my grandmother's blue knit sweater and paired it with a rummaged skirt, thrifted coach bag, and vintage hat. This sweater is such a special piece to me because I treasure anything that belonged to my grandmother! Not to mention, vintage knits are so much more fitted and flattering than any sweaters one would be able to find today. I find them so much more comfortable to wear and they make me feel better about my shape, too! Modern sweaters make me feel boxy and lumpy like a marshmallow -- not so with this blue number!



The hat is an item I received from a friend who sells vintage clothing. She wanted to get out of the business of selling hats, so she sold me her inventory of about 70 vintage hats for super cheap, and I was giddy to take them off her hands! This blue satin makes me feel so special, and I have worn it everywhere from the grocery store to my husband's swanky work Christmas party. We could just fasten it to my head permanently and I'd be a happy lady :) Do you have any items like that in your closets, readers?


Have a lovely day and don't forget to smile! :)
