Something Old, Something New

Something Old, Something New is the personal style blog of Tookie Too.  The blog is where she showcases her personal style, and affinity for mixing thrifted, vintage inspired clothing with modern, trendy pieces.

Floral Focal Point

Hey guys!! This outfit is the essence of what my style aesthetic is.  It's comfortable and practical (the sweater), with with a hint of vintage prints (the skirt).

Some of you may recognize the black orchid sweater as a one of the capsule pieces from the Altuzarra for Target collection.  I was able to recently purchase it on clearance.  The skirt is old, I got it at my neighborhood Goodwill.

On the Go

There is really nothing that can come between me and this hat.   Since I still work a  corporate job I really don't have much freedom during the week with my wardrobe, but that doesn't say anything about my weekend wear.   I wear this hat every weekend.  It is my all time favorite addendum to my fall wardrobe this year.

Black and white are my go to color combinations this season, and I love to pair it with any pop of color.   My shoes offer a pop of color, while my hat acts as a statement piece.  Burgundy is a color that I have been treating like a neutral this season.  It just seems to work so well with other neutrals.  You should try it.

Face Off - Black and White Pants

Hey guys!!! I hope your week has been productive and filled with lots of love.   In this post I wore one of my favorite, most comfortable pairs of pants.   Not only are these pants comfortable, but they are great for color blocking and monochromatic looks.  Another awesome attribute of these pants is their length.  They are a great length for heels, flats and even sneakers.

Favorite Halloween Lippies

Although this year I did not go out and purchase a full Halloween costume, I wanted to get in the spirit of the holiday just a bit.  I thought it would be a lot of fun to perhaps pick a few of my favorite vampy shades to try on tomorrow.  Experimenting with makeup is an easy way to build a spooky look without spending extra money on costumes.  I will for sure be donning a dark shade tomorrow night if I attend a party.

Top It Off

Autumn/Winter are my favorite seasons mainly because I prefer the pieces of my wardrobe during that time.  I am a coat, hat and tights type of girl.  I love layering on cozy pieces when it's brisk out.

Doing Something Different

Hey Lovelies!!! In this post I wanted to mix it up a bit.  I tried a new hairstyle, and I tried mixing prints and textures with my outfit.   Also, I wanted to see if it was possible to transition these bright red print pants into fall.

A lot of you have been my readers the entire time I have been on my natural hair journey,  and it has been quite the ride.  Although I don't talk about hair often, it's a some thing that always at the front of my mind.  Hair is a pretty big accessory to a women so we like for it to be in check.  This bun style has been when that I have seen a lot of naturals wear, so I wanted to try my hand at it.
