Old Soul

Dress: Thrifted | Shoes: Old Navy | Sunnies: Sam Moon | Earrings: Walmart 


I've always considered myself to be an "Old Soul", in fact my old Instagram handle used to be "Oldfashionedgirl". I think my association with being an old soul has often come from my love for vintage and old fashioned clothing styles. However, as time has gone by I have realized that I am an "old soul" for more reasons than just my clothes.
While my clothes and style are a huge part of my "old soul" spirit they also speak to who I am as a person (deep in my core). For me, my old fashioned and vintage styles illustrate how I see the world, life, etc. If you peeled way the layers you would see that my views and standards for life are quite old fashioned......sometimes I think my views would fit better in the 1950's than in our modern 21st century. I am known as the "mom" of my friends and you can often find me elaborating as the voice of reason and logic in many situations or raising eyebrows at peoples music choices, conversations, or clothes.
I often wonder if my style bloomed from my old fashioned views and standards of life? However, I think that my love for vintage clothes and my unique style comes from the fact that I truly am an "old soul." I resonate more with a 60 year old lady wearing muumuu's and picking flowers rather than a 22 year old college grad. Antique stores are comforting to me, swing music makes me feel as though I am living in the 40's and 50's and vintage clothes are the icing on the cake, transporting me back in time and backing up my "old soul" spirit.
Call it "old lady" syndrome, "crazy cat lady" side effects, but at the end of the day I am simply an "old soul" living in a modern world.

Do you consider yourself to be an old soul?

  1. I actually do consider myself an old soul! Mainly because my family has always told me that I am. That's because I've behaved like an adult since I was a little girl :)
