What I Wore

I stole the sweater from my mom years ago.  My dad bought it for my mom when she was my age.

The jacket is from Fringe and Fray, my favorite clothing store in Spokane.  I had store credit so I got it for free!  It was only $18 bucks though, they have such awesome stuff for great prices!  The shoes are Minnetonka Moccasins, funny story- I ordered them online while I was in labor. Sam thought I was crazy, while he was rushing around packing last minute items in our bag, I was filling my shopping basket at midnight entering in credit card info. in between contractions!

My mom knit the scarf for me.  The basket was bought at Hansen's last year.  I love it and use it all the time!
Man, as I look closer I keep seeing things people made for me.  I have a crafty family!  My dad made me that silver ring on my ring finger from an old spoon.  The other ring I got at a boutique in Colorado.

This blanket was made by my grandma for my brother.  I'll have to get another picture of it one day, it's awesome.  The yellow sweater she is wearing was made for my oldest brother- yep that was before ultrasounds revealing the sex, it's a pretty girly sweater if you ask me.
My mom crocheted this adorable little hat for miss luna bug.
I'm eager to try some new things out with my hair.  I have gobs of it, so I figure I should do more than just a plain pony tail, or leave it down and boring.  Pinterest has my wheels turning for new ideas. I tried out this hairstyle.  I don't know, I kinda liked how it turned out- but I also think I look like a cross between a German masseuse named Helga and Princess Lei, nevertheless I tried something new!

 I'm toying with the idea of posting some daily outfits.  I'm nervous to do this because I am the last person on earth to look at for style cues or inspiration on what to wear.  I have been inspired by Rachel and Rubyellen's Vintage Here, Vintage There feature and have been wanting to try it for a while.  I love dressing my little girl up in fun things, mixing old sweaters with cute little jeans.  So I thought I'd share my clothing and thrift store scores with you.  I think this will also be a good way to share all the handcrafted love that we've received.  It will also get me wearing more than the same 3 outfits all the time!  I'd love it if you comment, or link up with your own clothing post.  You can be honest, and I hope you will (I'm thinking my little sis especially- she has better fashion sense than me and she's truthful)  I think this means I'm getting old enough to not care if I have some weird outfits going on, it's my style and it works for me.  I think you can make anything work if you like it and wear it with confidence.
