Outfits of the Day June 17th thru 21st

This week I got to wear some new dresses that I haven’t worn yet. It was very warm most days this week, so I was able to wear some sleeveless dresses.

I bought this dress during the winter and was saving it for summer. I needed a purple halter swing dress in my life and Sunday was very warm, so I didn’t have to wear a cardigan!

Outfits of the Day May 14th to 18th

The weather was very weird this week, not the warmest and raining and cloudy mostly. The 80 degree weather we had two weeks ago was a tease! I actually had to wear thicker cardigans a couple times this week. We’re also at that weird in between stage where its too warm for my thick, wool vintage swing coats, but not warm enough to wear no nothing outside.

It was a chilly, grey day so I wore 3/4 sleeves and a grey skirt that has been sitting in my closet unworn for a few months.

Today it was chilly again, so I wore a black knit cardigan, but I took it off for the picture because I liked the outfit better without the cardigan. I’m taking advantage of wearing these turbans while its chilly to keep my head warm. Once it gets hot I won’t be able to wear them for a while, sadly. This button up top by Banned Retro is a great staple for vintage outfits because it comes in several different colors as well and you can mix and match with different skirts and pants.

Shirt: Banned Retro for Unique Vintage

Skirt: Unique Vintage (same skirt but they don’t carry the color I’m wearing, but have a few other colors, and it has POCKETS!)

So I wore green two days in a row! But it’s a different shade of green so that’s ok right? I love the fit of this dress and how the skirt flares out just at the bottom. This dress comes in multiple colors on Amazon and I am definitely going to have to go back and order more colors, especially since its less than $35. Today was accessories day for the Instagram Vintage Fashion Challenge so I had to wear this awesome hair flower clip. I need more flower clips in my life!

Today I was loving my outfit. I’ve worn this dress before, but only by itself. Today I paired it with a cropped cardigan because it’s chilly again. I LOVE the way this outfit looks! I need more Heidi dresses with cropped cardigans! The Red in the Cardigan doesn’t match the red on the dress exactly, but I’m probably the only one that notices lol.

This weekend is supposed to be raining and crappy again, so it will be interesting to see what I put together for outfits. Next week starting Monday though we are supposed to have sunny weather in the 60s and low 70s all week, so I am excited for the outfit possibilities. If you want to check out this weeks prompts for #thevintagefashionchallenge on Instagram my username is sparkleshan, the pictures are different then my outfit pictures in this post.

Outfits of the Day May 12th & 13th

Saturday was my college graduation and I really didn’t know what to wear! It took me forever to decided. I wanted a dress or skirt with pockets that I could put my phone in since I couldn’t carry my purse during the graduation ceremony, but all the dresses that I wanted to wear didn’t have pockets! Honestly, it is my opinion that all vintage style┬ádresses and skirts (swing ones anyway) should have pockets! They are so convenient!

I finally decided on this┬ádark blue dress for my graduation. But alas I didn’t get any pictures of me just in the dress because I had my cap and gown on most of the day. I will have to get a picture next time I wear it. But you get a picture of me at graduation, ha!

2018 SNHU College Graduation

Sunday, May 13, 2018

Today was Mother’s Day and I started the day off right by attending Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with my daughter. It’s fun to have something in common that we can both do together, that is healthy for you. It’s hard getting your teenager to hang out with you and my daughter really loves BJJ, which makes me happy! Then we spent some time with my mom and went out to a late lunch. I wore my favorite color pink!

Cardigan: Mak Cropped Cardigan

Skirt: Amazon (I Can’t find the link)

I promise I will get a picture of the dress I wore for graduation. It is still clean so I’ll probably wear it to work this week! Also I decided I need more pink vintage clothes in my life!
