What I Wore

Another outfit post!  Two in one day.  Here’s what I wore to church this morning:

Posing in the backyard.

Nice big picture, huh?  I mentioned in my last post that my husband and I went shopping last night.  Here’s some of the stuff I scored!  I’d been eyeing this dress at American Eagle for months, but last night I discovered that it was on clearance, plus take an extra 30% off the clearance price, plus an extra 10% off at the register.  I bought it, determined to make it work for fall/winter.  I threw on the same sweater from yesterday (get used to seeing it; I wear it all the time), some brown tights, and the fabulous vintage boots I got at Goodwill last night for $4.  They are cognac leather and they are amazing, but they are also very narrow and they barely fit me.  I was in some pain when this picture was taken.  I can definitely put up with them for just a few hours at a time, though.

You also saw the bag and the bracelets yesterday.  I decided to roll with a vintagey theme today, and so I wore the locket my grandparents (Nan-Nan and Pap-Paw, of course) got for me when I was a baby:

My lovely locket. I will have to remember to use the macro setting next time.

And I wore the signet ring also given to me by my Nan-Nan.  It belonged to my great-grandmother, whose name was Letha, so it has a lovely L (though you can’t see it here):

My ring!

I also picked up a vintage trench at Goodwill for $3:

My new trench.

I’m pretty pleased with it!  It’s in really good condition.  At some point, I might replace the buttons and buckles to give it a bit more oomph, but I’m not sure yet.  I’d been wanting a trench for a long time, and I found one at Goodwill, so I’m pretty pumped.

I might be back later to post about something possibly non-outfit related, but we’ll see.  Until next time, have a great Sunday!
