What I wore

Why? Because...
A) dressing for even the most ordinary of days should be fun and
B)I receive quite a few questions as to the how and why of what we wear, and
C) I get to pretend to model and look as completely awkward as I feel. :)

Thrifted vintage wool skirt - $2
Thrifted vintage cream sweater - $2
Orange tights from TJMaxx - $3
Born brown leather shoes - (I think) ebay for $15
Jewels - tungsten wedding band and earrings made by me

This outfit did kitchen scrubbing, homeschooling, thrift store perusing and grocery shopping with my fabulous six-pack of kiddos, nose wiping, nursing the wee one, curry making for dinner... The temperature outside was 2 degrees and snowy in the morning and warmed up to 23 degrees in the afternoon.

I like it! I love skirts with tights. And thrifting is such fun. At the Goodwill I go to all adult clothes are $3.50 a piece so you got a good deal. :)

Thanks for this, dear! I was just thinking about clothes this morning and my preference for flowy skirts (not legalistically, I just love them!) and how sometimes I feel a bit out of place if I choose to wear something like that to, say, a ball game...So it is so nice to see what other moms wear to look feminine, classy, and up to date. I love posts like these!

FANTASTIC...and yes getting dressed up even while at home is a good idea...My husband thinks so too...I have tossed the sweats away years ago....And I love that skirt....and more I love vintage!!

I love your outfit hannah! It reminds me of an outfit I am now inspired to wear today. Love that you can still be a great mama and not wear sweat pants. :)

In Christ,
Rebecca

I can envision you taking a stroll through the English countryside in that outfit. I love the way you styled your hair. Your look is elegant and classic.

Thank-you for sharing.

You are lovely! Wish I could have you and all your kids over for hot tea and warm cookies, so we could chat about mothering, books, homeschooling, and theology. I need a kindred spirit! :)

That's great! Some say that it shouldn't matter what you wear, but I have found it does change my outlook and attitude when I care about how I look. I also love how cheap it was!
I haven't worn a dress around the house for a couple months, but maybe I'll put one on this week despite the cold. Time to get dressed up to scrub the toilets.

Not fashionable but I like the simplicity of the outfit.
