Green Eyed Monster

Hey all! 

Hope that everyone is having a happy Wednesday. 

I was really frustrated with taking outfit pictures yesterday. My mom and I had gone on a ortho/thrifting outing, so she agreed (after much pleading) to take my outfit pictures, because I just loved what I was wearing. 

However, after about 45 minutes of picture taking I only got a couple of usable shots. Now maybe my mother will see how frustrating my camera is; she doesn't support me getting a nicer camera since I have one that "works." pftsh. I keep dreaming of a day of  a nicer camera. 

Anyway, I still wasn't very happy with some of the better shots, so I used Pixlr again to spruce them up a little bit. I really like the last one now! 

I am such  a fan of this dress. The funny thing? It was my mom's maternity dress. Yep. When I was moving, my mom told me that she had an old garment rack downstairs that I could use, since I don't have a closet in my room. (Why she didn't tell me this before, I don't know!) 

Anywho, she said that I could have it as long as I helped her clean off all the old coats on it. However, after getting through 20 year old snowsuits there was a HUGE garment bag taking up most of the rack. In it was a bunch of clothing from when my mom was in high school, some when she was pregnant, and even some long gowns from when she was a bridesmaid in the 70's!! I was FREAKING out. It felt like Christmas. Even better? My mom was about the same size as I am. 

As you know from this post, I have no qualms about wearing maternity clothes, especially if it vintage pieces  from my family members; for my body type, it is nothing a good belt can't fix! Remember if it is cute, find a way to make it work! (I may have stolen that line from this genius man - a What Not What to Wear marathon was on last night.) 
Dress - My momma's old maternity dress 
Belt - Thrifted 
Shoes - Payless (old) 

Well, the lovely Miss Amy is coming over soon and We are going to enjoy the beautiful weather we are having and take lots of photos! I'm so glad she is near by! <3 

xoxo,
