From My Aunt



Top: thrifted
Skirt: J. Crew, a hand-me-down from my Aunt Judy
Shoes: Miss Albright
Pin: gift from my Aunt Judy

I feel like I have a somewhat weird look on my face in my outfit photo today, but it's the only photo I liked. I also think I should have tucked my blouse in. But sometimes I don’t want to do that because I feel like I do it all the time.

Well, as you can see from the outfit breakdown, two of the things in this outfit came from my Aunt Judy. I think the skirt might be from the ’80s or early ’90s. I’ve had it for about 10 years, and I’m sure my aunt had it for a while before that. She gave me the pin at Christmas when I was about eight or nine. Isn’t it sweet? I’m glad I still have it, and I think I should wear it more often.

  1. I always tuck my blouses in too lately. It's okay! But I think this one looks good untucked! The little pin is really cute too. You could definitely easily incorporate that into more outfits.

  4. I love that pin.

    I must be really unobserverant EL OH EL, omg that 3AM spelling job there. Unobservant because I thought the blouse was tucked until you pointed it out! It has a neat hem, so it looks good untucked too.

  6. I like the un-tucked shirt the angle of the bottom is really cute.
    I have an ancient piece of jewelry that I got when I was about 8 too, mine is a butterfly necklace. I wear it all the time :)

  7. I need a pleated skirt. It looks so cute. I also really like the floral print. I didn't notice a weird face at all :)

  14. What a lovely grey skirt! They are hard things to come by (at least for me). I didn't even notice your blouse was un-tucked until you mentioned it! It appears to have that magical quality of looking good either way :)

    Sweet pin! And even sweeter to be from a beloved family member.

    P.S. Thanks for the comment on my Van Buren post. I really appreciated it! Paper-doll-president making sounds rather fun. I think I would have enjoyed that as a kid.

  15. I love this floral blouse! I've been trying to incorporate more floral tops in my wardrobe but I haven't been able to find the perfect one. The pin from your aunt is so pretty! It is so feminine and versatile I can imagine it on many other tops that you own. ;)
