Day 2

Yvonne invited me to join her for a 30 day photo challenge. Since there are no rules and since there will be an addition to our family this month, I may be following it rather loosely. Either way, I couldn't say no! Day 1 was a self portrait so you can consider the last post day 1 even though it was technically a day early. Today's challenge is "what I wore."

I had to crop out my feet when I cropped out the cardboard box sitting in the corner...we're running out of room in this apartment. You didn't miss out, they were bare. We don't always wear socks around here and I didn't grab the boots that I would wear if I was to actually venture out today.
I've seen a lot of outfit posts with prices attached which is always really interesting to me, but I couldn't tell you for the life of me what each individual item cost. I can guess that the total outfit was under $10. I'm thrifty like that.

Dolmen-sleeved sweater: Elle, thrifted during our sister's trip
Short-sleeved maternity tee: Motherhood, thrifted
Maternity jeans: A Pea in the Pod, borrowed from my sister, Amanda
White beaded necklace: vintage, belonged to Jeff's Grandma Sally
Gold necklace: vintage, belonged to Jeff's Grandma Sally

I really love this gold necklace. When Jeff's family emptied out his Grandpa's house, the kids were all able to go through and take whatever they wanted (this was a couple years ago when it was realized that Grandpa would never be moving back from the adult care home). Jeff and I didn't get to look through everything until we were in town a few weeks later after it was pretty well picked over, but I still found a few treasures, mostly jewelry. I specifically remember grabbing this necklace saying something down the lines of, "I don't know if I really love this, but it's a simple necklace that goes with everything." Then I put it on. I wear it All. The. Time. Literally, it never comes off. I'm glad I decided to take it.

Welcome to the club! Love how you "young" people can make something old look so jazzy. That word is probably vintage. Also enjoy your repurposing ideas.

That's still one of my favorite necklaces! I love that it kind of resembles dainty doilies.

Cute outfit, too.

I love that necklace!
And having thrifted clothes! I feel extremely satisfied when my whole outfit costs less than most people would pay for a shirt.
