I'm Holding Out For That Teenage Feeling.

There are a few things that are always eluding me in thrift/vintage/shopping land; for a very long time I was hunting (to no avail) for a letterman or varsity jacket. Luck would have it that I've finally snagged two (here is my other) during the year or so I've been working at Front & Company. This one is particularly close to my heart since it's older, woolen and even has the original owner's name still scrawled on the interior. I love a little bit history in a garment. When I put this jacket on, I feel like I am a teen again, swiftly borrowing a jacket from a lover.

I love it! In high school I opted to get a varsity jacket instead of a class ring. I need to break that bad boy out again. I really only got it because I thought it would be cool for my future kid to wear. I'm a future-minded gal.

That's a gorgeous find, but I'm mostly loving the cap! It's so sweet and clever.
