Puns for titles of blog posts will never, ever get old to me. Sure, to you they will, but never to me! And this blog is really all about me, dontcha know? ;)

But brooches are really have a moment lately. I’ve seen tons of other bloggers wearing them on sweaters, coats, scarves, hats, and even on necklaces! So that inspired me to bust out some of my brooches and wear them with my new “souvenir” sweater (see my Ireland post here for more details on that) and some old favorites for a warm and comfy fall outfit. How great are navy and maroon together? Might be my new favorite fall color combination.

Are you a brooch fan? Or do you think they’re too vintage for your style?

ps. While I was looking for similar brooches to link to in the post, I stumbled upon this joker of a brooch. I kind of wish I had ordered it! So many pun possibilities! ;)

    Loving the brooch and boot socks!

  • Love this! I think if I came across any brooch at a thrift store I would think it wasn’t right for my style, but the way you paired them with this outfit and paired them together makes them look totally modern. Something to consider now!

    Love the outfit and love the brooches! I don’t dress vintage but I collect vintage cookbooks, aprons, and misc kitchen things because I love the historical and now I shall have to add brooches to an outfit or two. Thanks for all you do!
