vintage here, vintage there: a casual day

vintage here, vintage there
I finally left the house on Sunday to go to church (I didn't go anywhere at all last week) and I was feeling so yucky that all I wanted to throw on were a pair of jeans and a tee! Thus, it was dubbed a casual "vintage here, vintage there" for the week.

Then, my prego mama brain went into overdrive and as were about to take pictures with my nikon, I realized I forgot to put the battery in, so we decided to do the pictures using hipstamatic app on ben's phone. Yup. This mama is definitely pregnant!

I feel like I am kinda cheating this week because the only vintage I am actually wearing is the kelly green cardigan. I found it thrifting in San Antonio over the holidays and totally thought it was polyester, so I stuck it in the wash. When I took it out it was a tad bit smaller, so I looked at the label and saw that it was actually pure virgin wool! Oi!!! It was originally a bit bigger, so now I like the fit a lot better, but washing it did give it some teeny tiny holes all over that I had to hand sew close. You can hardly tell the holes are there now and I still love it nonetheless. It is a lesson to look at the label before you throw it in the wash!

True was sleeping in the car, so I didn't bother waking her up because she was extremely tired and we noticed she may have the startings of a cold. My Brave and Soul were happy to be freed and able to roam a bit taking some pictures.

Soul's cowichan sweater is from oh, sydney and it is one of my favorite vintage things we have for her! I really wish it came in my size, but I think I could say that about a lot of the kid vintage stuff they have.

Brave's dress vintage dress is totally another style that I wish came in my size! Though of late, the idea of wearing a dress doesn't sound too pleasant to me. When I was pregnant with Brave all I wanted to wear was pants. Then when I was pregnant with Soul all I wanted to wear were dresses! This time around all I want to wear are pajamas!!! Do you think I could make it socially acceptable to wear my pj's out and about?!! Yeah. I didn't think so.

    i definitely think that you could rock your pj's out of the house!

  2. I say that preggo ladies get to wear whatever, where ever the heck they want! I instituted that rule when I was pregnant, and I'm reinstating it for you. When I'm pregnant again, I plan to do the same.
