WHAT I WORE: Mod Victorian

It’s pretty fun figuring out new ways to mix up old clothes. I love filling my wardrobe with separates that I can mix and match depending on the season or my mood. This time I indulged in some drama with a long skirt (I’ve just been able to fit into again! Woo!) and a bit of fun with polka dots. I had picked out a dramatic hat to match, but it seemed a bit much, so I settled on a soft angora beret instead. The whole outfit made me feel like a modern day Eliza Doolittle!

P.S. The last time I wore this shirt and vest together was the day before Lucy was born!

    this outfit is stunning and i LOVE the super rich, dark background in these pics (even if it is just your (?) garage! ha! ; ) I’ve never been able to pull off hats. I would really love to be able to pull off a beret, and that thrifted one you found is ah-ma-zing.
