The week before Brett left for BOLC we took a trip to Rutlidge-Wilson Farm so the kids could enjoy the animals and play on one of the most exciting playgrounds in town! It was a chilly, rainy day but we managed to fit in a great trip right up until the skies opened up on us.
It was jeans weather but pairing it with my clogs and a cropped vintage jacket kept things feeling pulled together. The jacket was part of a Jackie O type suit that I found for $1. It was a great deal and love that I can wear them as separates!

Be sure to check out Rubyellen's crew soon to see how they've styled things this week! They don't get the same kind of frigid weather in Southern California but I know it's gotten a bit chilly down there lately!
Thanks for stopping in and reading about our adventures. Rubyellen and I are always hoping this feature encourages other mamas to find ways to experiment with vintage in their wardrobes. Fashion isn't the most important thing in our worlds but we both believe there's value in giving attention to our wardrobes because it makes us feel better. It doesn't hurt that our husband's love it!
As young mother's that spend a lot of time at home it's been tempting for both of us to let our style take a back seat to new priorities but VH,VT has been a fun way to share outfits with each other and our readers. We don't wear vintage every day and surely still have our yoga pants moments but we're taking strides to enjoy our wardrobes lest we slip into the dark abyss of mom jeans and husband's t-shirts. Ha! Been there, done that. It wasn't pretty.
Does getting dressed feel fun to you or more like a chore? Do you love your personal style right now or are you still trying to figure it out? Do you bargain shop for your wardrobe or invest in key pieces that last for more than a year? I'd love to hear about it!
