I feel this is a somewhat lonely post as it is just me sans kids (well, I have the baby inside me, does that count?). I had every intention of doing a post including them, but yesterday’s and today’s weather has just been bad, so it just wasn’t feasible to snap any pictures of them dressed up cute in vintage! You are now stuck with a post of just me from a few weeks ago.
I wore this outfit on a nice sunny day to go out treasure hunting with my sister (see her outfit post of the same day here). We grabbed lunch, found some goodies, then went to visit some friends at the school I used to work at. It was a nice day out and I was tired when I got home. Though, it seems I am always tired when I get home. Pregnancy (and having three kids) takes a lot out of you!
I am a short gal, so wearing vintage dresses with the bump has been especially difficult because of where the waist falls on some of my vintage dresses. For this dress, I kind of had to tuck in the skirt up to make the waist fall somewhere more flattering and accentuate the bump. The little peplum also accentuate it.
My go to shoes are always ballet flats and of course my purse of sorts is a tapestry bag. I am just in love with those and will keep collecting them forever, until I run out of room or Ben makes me stop.
I really feel lonely looking at these pics without my girls. I feel naked without them!
on me: dress, vintage. cardigan, target. shoes, jessica simpson. tapestry bag, vintage via the attic people (told you I love their shop!).
The rain is back, so we are bundled up in pajamas all the day long over here, but I am so looking forward to the warmer weather, though I consider myself a gray sky, gloomy weather kinda gal. I think all the gardening has me dreaming up warm days in a lovely hammock sipping on some lemonade. Okay, maybe not lemonade cause that doesn’t sound too good to me right now, but I will definitely be sipping on something good.
Other pretty things I am coveting: zig zig dress, mustard knitted dress, vintage yellow and lace, 1920’s deco, ethereal 1940’s, black checker
Pretty things for kids: gingham sailor, nautical stripe, prepster bow tie, maroon shirt, pink hearts, retro elephant
I miss seeing Rachel’s vintage outfits, since we took a couple weeks off, but I am so excited to see what her and her lovely gang is wearing “over there”!
