This weekend I was able to attend Sarah and Doren's wedding shower which was hosted by Elsie and Emma at Red Velvet. I brought Sebastian with me but Ruby had to stay home and take a nap. She missed out on some yummy donuts! It was a chance to wear a skirt I'd recently thrifted in my attempt to mix up my wardrobe a bit.
It was a beautiful shower with confetti, balloons, donut hole skewers, and chocolate milk. Sebastian was in heaven!
Sarah and Doren got a lot of lovely gifts but Penelope kind of stole the show in her handprinted donut dress. Elsie made it just for the occasion and it was completely adorable.
We gifted them a vintage typewriter in my favorite shade of blue because typewriters are pretty darn romantic and they both appreciate a good vintage piece. I hope they write love letters to each other on it.
I found this skirt at the local DAV for $3 as well as another in a bold shade of blue. I almost put it back because I didn't know if it would work in my favor but I'm so glad I didn't.
I like that I can pair it with a jersey tee and flats or maybe add a blouse with an ascot and oxford heels for something a little less casual. The color is perfect for fall.
I had Brett take these photos of us together after I got back from the shower so I could use them in this feature. Ruby had a sweet little Kewpie doll curl and I'm so glad we got a picture of it!
Ruby's wearing: Vintage dress, purchased online (can't remember where). Cut off leggings, Target. Saltwater sandals, MySaltwaterSandals.
It's hard to tell the color of my polish in this photo but it's a mix between lavender and mauve (?). It's Lady Like from Essie's new Fall Collection and was actually gifted for my birthday from Sarah, the one who's shower I attended.
With the cooler weather and a general need to not wear the same things every week I've been trying to incorporate a few mix and match pieces that will help my wardrobe feel more versatile. This skirt is a bold color but can mix with a variety of neutrals to create a few different outfits. Vintage dresses are great because they are an easy outfit but it can feel a bit repetitive after awhlie so I've been having fun experimenting with separates.
How have you been experimenting with your wardrobe lately? What have you wanted to try out with a new season upon us?
Go see how fantastic Rubyellen looks in her most recent VH,VT post (taken a few weeks ago) and, of course, her sweet trio of little ladies. It won't be three for much longer as she's due any day now and we're all so excited to find out if she'll be passing along vintage dresses or shopping for vintage overalls for baby number four!
