I Wear My Great-Grandma’s Clothes, I Look Incredible Vol. 5, plus a bonus!

Well lookie here – some pictures from last December for your enjoyment.  Great-Grandma’s clothes were not baby-bump friendly!

The skirt was my Great-Grandma’s, with a white cami, gray sweater, and that all felt a little too bland for me so a sparkly scarf.  And of course my good old black flats, and a cute then-three-year-old.

 

I need to work on looking natural, and maybe somewhere other than the church nursery to take pictures? Sundays get a little crazy in our household so we do what we can!

And a Bonus!  My Great-Great Aunt Winifred made pretty things, and sadly this sweater no longer fits, but here is a glimpse of the neckline:

I think I wore this sweater when I was in 4th grade so understandable that it isn’t the best fit now.

Maybe that the baby belly is gone (who am I kidding? The baby is out, but much of the belly remains . . . ) I will find some more old clothes to wear!

 

I Wear My Great-Grandma’s Clothes, I Look Incredible, Vol. 4

Well I wore this all the way back on 10/4/15  . . . blogging has just not been on my radar!

Somehow I felt like a diner waitress in this one?  Also I was a fan of the slimming vertical lines. Paired with leggings, and black ballet flats (pretty much the only dress shoes I own right now).

I don’t know.

Brian:  That one’s cute
Emily: Look closer
Brian: Oh

And I guess you can see most of my shoes here, and my fancy lace foot liners, which someone was just asking me about!  I just know I got them on Amazon, not sure what kind they are but there are plenty to choose from if you search!

Planning to write about otters soon, so there’s that to look forward to – but this took me so long to do, don’t hold your breath!

I Wear My Great-Grandma’s Clothes, I Look Incredible, Vol. 3

I have 2 dresses photographed! So more to come!

This dress is maybe my favorite.  Turns out it is flattering, too.  A couple people lately have thought that I lost weight but sadly that is not the case.  I’ll take the compliment, though!

In hindsight I should have worn my pearls!  Worn with my trusty/old white church sweater.  I don’t remember what shoes and they’re not in the picture – probably just ballet flats.

A sad story about this dress is one time I let someone talk me out of wearing it an event and wore something less . . . vintage.  I care a little less about what people think these days.  But confidence matters – if I had worn it without feeling it, I probably wouldn’t have looked as good anyway.

Now I wear it to hang out in the nursery at church with my kiddos – and they certainly don’t care what I’m wearing, save maybe for Elliot needing nursing access.

More to come!

I Wear My Great-Grandma’s Clothes, I Look Incredible, Vol. 2

Took these pics a couple weeks ago!

This dress is sadly wrinkly but made out of like plastic so I’m scared to iron it.

A couple cute photobombers made it into this shoot 🙂

Blue leggings for pop of color, black flats, and a perfect color match bracelet I found in my closet

Confession: I used a robe belt because the belt wasn’t long enough, and the top buttons had a little trouble maintaining their position.  Great-Grandma must not have been quite so curvy . . .

New series!  Get it?

I’d link to the song, but I’m not sure if all the lyrics are appropriate.

This dress is what I wore to church today, and, as you can imagine, belonged to my Great-Grandma.  She was pretty cool.  She always tried to give me the food off her plate, and she got so excited when we would get her toilet paper for Christmas.

Styled with boots from Payless that I totally copied from my sister-in-law, a belt I bought awhile ago just for this dress, and a necklace from a World Vision donation.

Check out the detail of this fabric!

The first time I wore this dress I got very distracted from the sermon in church when I realized there were animals all over my dress!

Hoping to wear some more of her things in the future and take some more pictures!
