Mother's Day

I stayed home with my one week old little angel baby Elisabeth while the Isaac and Caleb went to church. They brought me back some delightful flowers and a Mother's Day questionnaire filled out by Isaac. It made me laugh, blush and cry. I am so thankful for my sweet, little family!

She weighs 10 lbs
She's 99 feet tall
She's 30 years old. (Thanks, it's one year off!)
She looks pretty when she is short (Isaac clarified later that I'm always pretty,  but especially when I'm small... he means without a big pregnant belly as he's always asking if he can help me push it back down.)
Her favorite color is: blue.
Her favorite food is: all the food.
Her favorite movie: The Avengers (he just saw it w/Grandma)
Her favorite store: Wal-Mart (not Goodwill!?)
I know she's really mad when: she yells.
If I had a lot of money, I would buy her: popsicles.

*Her hospital newborn pics arrived in the mail just in time for Mother's Day*

Personal Style: Petals and Pleats

This is my Mother's Day outfit. I'm loving the dark, vintage spring floral skirts/shorts in trend right now, but they are mostly a little short for my taste so I thought this top was close enough. I love this ivory, pleated vintage skirt I scored thrifting a few years back, but I honestly don't think I have ever worn it. So, my style secret? Wearing something that doesn't need to be wrinkled. I pretty much look like a bag lady the majority of the time because I am on this anti-ironing kick right now. Finding unwrinkled articles of clothing that pair well together is a task, but I'm up for the challenge.

I love these vintage clip ons. Huge acrylic flowers and sparkly rhinestones. The peachy-pink color is different, but a nice nod to this years coral craze. I got about 20 pairs of vintage earrings at an estate sale for $1 the other day. I wish they were all this awesome. I'll probably list some from my growing collection in my shop in the coming days.

So, I don't usually pair black and brown together, but for some weird reason, the flowers on the black top or the ivory skirt, the cosmos worked together and so I added a brown belt and shoes. The t-strap heels and vintage ck belt tie the look together, otherwise it would be too frumpy for me to leave the house. Even though the shoes aren't vintage, they still have that appeal.
