Daily Outfit

I love buttons!
I tend to replace most of the buttons on my thrifted cardigans or on my old cardigans to bring new life to them. On modern clothing, buttons tend to be boring and functional, rather than a functional statement. Queens of Vintage did an article recently about how buttons can add character to garments and I couldn't agree more.
Wanting a way to show off my small vintage button collection, I remembered this print over the weekend and put aside my embroidery to embellish a cardigan (which took longer to do then I thought).
How to you display your vintage button collection?

Cardigan: thrifted and embellished
Skirt: vintage
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: Kenzie

Would it be cliche to say you look as cute as a button? Because you definitely do! :)

I adore this charming, sweetly feminine outfit and your wonderfully embellished cardigan. Fantastic idea, I will have to try that out myself one day, too, when I've built up a bigger button collection.

Big hugs,
