What comes to mind when you hear the word vintage? Well, for me I think of bold prints, scarfs, flares, billowed sleeves, buttons and high waists.
Now, if you're an oldie on the blog, then you probably know just how much I love vintage pieces.
So why vintage? Well its cost effective, especially for a lady like me on a budget. Not to mention the uniqueness of the pieces, don't you just hate being caught wearing the same outfit as someone else? And finally with vintage, you can stay on trend without breaking the bank. So there, have I convinced you yet?

So I thought it would be great to collaborate with Desola of Deemako, she has an eye for vintage as is evident in her vintage store. Not to mention, Desola just has a way with vintage items that just makes sense, don't you agree?
Now for my outfit, I decided to break out of my monochrome theme of late and do a bit of colour blocking with red and yellow. I reached for my must have vintage piece, a pair of highwaisted trousers (styled here) and then added a scarf to spice up everything. Don't you just love how the scarf compliments the colour theme of this look? I aslo love that Desola and I incorporated scarfs into our looks.
Just a quick tip, scarfs not only help on bad hair days but are also great for adding a little something extra to a look. You can check out this inspiration post for more tips on styling a scarf.
