F21 varsity jacket | Zara plaid blouse | F21 pleated skirt | H&M bow bracelet | DIY polka dot tie | Zara suede d'orsay heels

Something about the 1950's and 1960's with all the rock 'n roll, greased muscle cars, and hometown suburban goodness always makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. I have always adored the pop culture of the 50's with its jitterbugs, drive-in theaters, full skirts, and a sense of domestication. Add on top of that the rebelliousness and free spirited vibes of the 60's. The mixture makes a fascinating compilation. It must have been really entertaining back in those days to be in high school and having varsity jackets, plaid patterns, and polka dots as part of the school curriculum. I decided to relive that ideal in a decade where jeans and t-shirts have become the convention. There is no better time to play dress up for a sock hop.
