This year is going by so quickly and one thing I know for sure is I am growing with the times. I am not the type of person who says “Shh, don’t tell people my age.” I am proud to be 42 years old. The growth and experiences that God has allowed me to conquer, I don’t take that for granted.
Anyway, the first dress I am wearing is one of my favorite vintage dresses. I have had it for years and it has a few tears here and there that I had to mend but I love it because it’s so carefree. I am a maximalist and it’s hard for me to part with my maxi dresses.
The 2nd look is featuring a pleather skirt I purchased for GoJane.com last year. I love that store.
My favorite thing to wear on the weekend is not denim but camouflage. I have camo everything too from dresses, joggers, pants, skirts and even tank tops.
I love pairing these items with contrasting colors or fabrics like this backless knit sweater and faux suede booties but ultimately my main goal is comfort.
I even tone down my makeup because let’s be real, who is going to Target with their face beat to the gawds? 0_O

Ever so often I love to do what I call “Vintage Recreations” on my fashion blog where I use a vintage photo as inspiration for my “Outfit Of The Day”. Unknowingly, when I put this outfit together and was looking over the photos I thought “Oh, Wow, this ensemble reminds me a lot of Audrey Hepburn’s outfit in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“. I guess my vintage style is becoming second nature to me now.
I told my boyfriend about the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” correlation and his response was “What’s Tiffany’s? Do they sell chicken?” O_O

The weekends are generally family time. The boys and I watch movies, cook scrumptious snacks and just hang out and relax.
After conquering household chores (because the laundry, sock and dust monsters all live in my house), I generally go out grocery shopping
I bought these jeans from Goodwill and did my own DIY on them with a bucket of bleach and a paint brush.
The shoes are from GoJane.com (pause—I could do an entire post on all the shoes I purchased from that site). They sell quality shoes at affordable prices.
