As I continue to stretch my wardrobe around my growing tummy, I'm really starting to be limited to the genuine vintage pieces I can squeeze into from my wardrobe. But because I do like to mix things up, I feel like I'm still doing okay with staying true to my style and being myself, unique and different. This combination except for the handbag I took out this day (not pictured) are all non-vintage but it is all op-shopped or gifted, except the shoes.
I rather fancy the skirt and think it's a good example of something not being vintage but in the right context could be passed off in the right ensemble as a great component to a fab vintage inspired outfit.

Now for my second outfit, it's a combination I wore on our recent family fun day out with the kids. It features one of my favourite winter pieces in my wardrobe that rarely gets seen. In fact I don't think it's ever had a blog outing. It's a most fabulous 1980's Kimono sleeve sweater weight top, I bought it at least six years ago on eBay. It's one of those pieces that has had many compliments over the years and requests for it to be handed on if I was ever to tire of it. Ummm I think not, she's staying.

If you read my blog post on Monday
you may be wondering why I have suddenly got pics from our Family Fun Day. Well the Big V came home from work the other day and decided to try a free photo recovery program. Guess what he saved the day! I cried again, happy hormonal pregnant cry that we recovered the pics from the day that Cohen had declared the best day ever. Phew! You're a good egg hubby!
Hmm it looks like photo quality may not be the greatest on the last two pics because of the recovery, but hey at least I have them and all the others.
