I'm loving the plaid shirt I made a few months back more and more as I find different ways of styling it. Recently I was I took some quick pictures of two ways I've been wearing it. It gets worn almost as soon as it's clean again. I definitely need more vintage separates in my wardrobe.
I wore my new "Gold Digger" earrings, and had to show a picture of each. One has a pick and the other a shovel with what looks like gold nuggets. The etsy seller said they were from the 1940s, and I thought they were too cute to pass up.
I wore black tights and some plain black heels I've had forever. I thought with the shorter heel and the rounded toe, they had a bit of a 30s to 40s flair to them, and they are actually super comfy. I could wear these walking all day.
I loved this outfit. It was so easy to wear and the hat kept my head warm and dry in the rain. You would think I could've figured out that a hat would do that before, but I'm just now starting to see the actual benefits and reasons for wearing hats. The more I wear them, the more I want to wear them. I think they're addictive, and I can see many more in my future. I may have to start sewing outfits just to go with the hats.
The second outfit was worn for a casual outing and then Christmas decorating at my brother's store. My little girl, who's six, especially likes to help in the decorating of his business every year.
I wore a turquoise colored smocked beret, and it kept my head warmer than expected.
I wore my hair in a ponytail with a couple rolls in the front as I knew I'd be working some outside in the wind and needed my hair out of my face.
I wore a pair of straight leg jeans and cuffed them at the bottom. I've been doing that for ages though, and not necessarily to have a vintage look, but more because I'm short legged. I paired the jeans with my Minnetonka moccasins. Something else I've had for ages, but they are seriously so comforable.

I'm not the best at coming up with outfits, but I do think I'm getting better. And I will definitely be wearing this skirt and plaid shirt combination again.
