(Vintage yellow belt, vintage silver cuff bracelet, vintage brooch worn as a necklace)
I honestly feel like I have a make-shift wardrobe. Not only do I wear a lot of vintage but I also keep my modern-day stuff for a REALLY long time. Case and point--this purple tank top. I got it back when the empire waist/baby doll style dresses and tops were really in. (It's from Urban Outfitters via a discount store.) On this day, the color worked with my candy striped skirt but the cut was not doing it for me. So I took a cue from Kendi (LOVE her.) and knotted it in the back. Instant update!
Isn't this a great photo?? Totally not staged! Andrew took it as I was getting into place for my posed pics.
Lastly, let's talk shoes. I love shoes. But like the rest of my wardrobe, my shoe collection hasn't been updated in a very long time. And I am way too practical. I'll admit--I buy shoes I don't like that much just because they're cheap, or they're comfortable. So the silver, strappy sandals I wore here were not my ideal...BUT they were great for carting around a baby on my hip. I would have loved to have worn something more like these:
But as moms, we make sacrifices! (Clothing choices being the least of these.)
