    How to style maternity for winter

    How to style maternity for winter This adorable Amazon retro maternity dress was an immediate buy. I almost always reach for more bodycon styles once I get to about halfway through my pregnancy, and with its bell sleeves, plaid, and longer length it’s a great modern alternative to actual vintage maternity wear. True vintage maternity is often tent-like, and that’s not a look I love. But then there’s the conundrum: how to style maternity for winter? Over the past week and in this coming week I am working on a video of both true vintage and modern-to-vintage winter maternity outfits because I remember past pregnancies feeling a bit lost in…

    Outfit Repeating | vintage-inspired maternity outfit

    Quite unintentionally, I wore this outfit last year on the very same day. This year, I’m calling it a vintage-inspired maternity outfit. Because it is vintage-inspired, and I am pregnant. Last year, it was just an outfit that made me happy. One of my biggest goals this year, as I go into pregnancy and maternity wear, is to purchase as little as I have to and make what I already own work. Or, if I truly need something, to make myself vintage-inspired maternity outfits instead of buying them. I’ve fallen into the habit of thrifting almost everything in my wardrobe. But I have a massive excess of both clothing AND…

    An Authentic 1920’s Makeup Look

    Happy New Year! As I’m sure you’ve seen all over the internet, ringing in the 2020’s by doing a 1920’s makeup look has been really popular. And I’m totally here to join the trend, because it’s fun! While I didn’t plan this makeup look at all I do love the way it turned out and I think it’s much closer to what I’ve always wanted to achieve in past years when I’ve done 20’s looks. This year, my goals so far as creating content and social media are a little more solid. I never made myself a schedule last year, so my content creation went from gung-ho twice or three…

    Christmas Tree Hunting || Hell Bunny Plaid Dress

    Yesterday, we went Christmas Tree shopping. It’s the first real holiday thing we have done since moving into our new house, and to be honest it wasn’t the best experience. The kids had meltdowns, and it was a lot of trekking through mud, and the lines were insane. The tree farm we visited was VERY popular – so popular cars overflowed from the parking lot and onto the streets. I hope next year we can find a quieter tree farm, maybe one with a little more of that countryside charm I’ve always loved where we used to live. There was no hot chocolate or candy canes there, just lots of…

    Five Fall Wardrobe Essentials || Basic Vintage Style

    Five Fall Wardrobe Essentials Today over on YouTube I am sharing my five fall wardrobe essentials for vintage style! I was hoping to put out some sort of content for October 1, since it feels like the official start of spooky season, but I have limited access to my things at the moment.  After some scrambling I realized I had everything I needed to film, and while this isn’t a particularly spooky video, I think it’s the perfect way to start October out. I’ve wanted to share my wardrobe basics ever since Bianca started sharing hers. Doing an autumn capsule wardrobe has really solidified the things I wear the most.…
