What I Wore - #1

A few weeks ago, I had mentioned that I planned on attempting to document photos of my daily outfits to post here. It's been a little over a year since my son was born, and I wanted to do this mainly as a way to motivate myself to get out of my "new mom clothing rut" - a.k.a. wearing only sweats and t-shirts all day every day. So here's my first "What I Wore" post!

Oufit Details:
Handmade 1970s Polyester Tunic - found @ a church rummage sale
Grey T-Shirt - thrifted
Skinny Belt - Banana Republic
Jeans - Sears, I think
Black Boots - Nine West "Casilda" boots from Zappos

I'm wearing this outfit today. I fell in love with the polyester tunic top the moment I laid eyes on it...and it was only .50 cents! Best of all, it's handmade. In fact, I think I've seen the 1970s Simplicity pattern for sale on Etsy recently. These are the only pair of "skinny" jeans that I own. Love them, but they tend to get baggy at the knees after a couple hours of wear. Would love to make a pair of the Burda Style Anita skinny jeans someday. The black belt has been a part of my wardrobe for 10 years! I just bought the Nine West boots and they are super-comfy. I think they look like granny boots from the late 1960s which is a bonus!
