Traveling Wardrobe {Vintage Style}

I hate packing for trips.  I am the type of person who likes to dress based on my mood so planning outfits ahead of time is really not my thing.  When packing for a vacation I usually grab a bunch of separates (various colors of basic tanks, skirts/pants/shorts) and then throw in some random accessories that will work with any combination of my separates.  Here's what I wore one of our days in Virginia this weekend:

Plain black tank and cuffed denim cut-offs accessorized with vintage vest, leather belt, silver jewelry.  I know, I know...it's not rocket science.  And honestly I didn't love the outfit.  But I feel like as part of showing "mom style" I want to be real and show things that are practical and things that I actually wore (rather than just put on to pose for a few photos).  When you have a cute baby on your hip, chances are no one is looking at YOU anyway!  (Lyla was rocking a little vintage romper--yellow and white gingham print and an anchor embroidered on the front!)  I may have to start re-thinking my jewelry choices, seeing as Lyla is now interested in grabbing any and everything--as you can see in the photos, she was digging my necklace!  Check out the Miskabelle blog tomorrow to see what Amanda wore this past weekend!

Photo shoot posts are, of course, always awesome, but it's so nice to see everyday, this-is-what-I-wore-just-doin-my-thing posts. Some days I want to be comfortable without being frumpy, and posts like this help!!
