Smock It To Me

Head to Toe: Top, CT Couture // Jeans, Mavi Denim // Sandals, Teva (similar) // Earrings, Impulse Control Vintage

Believe it or not, this stunning view is just a quick walk from our new house! We've officially been moved in for a week, and we're finally feeling a little bit more settled. We're getting a crash course in the joys of home ownership, and learning some lessons of the measure twice, cut once persuasion. (I spent the weekend steam-removing wallpaper, and Sean did yard work.)

But, it's a labor of love! And it will be super worth it when everything comes together. Most days last week, you could find me in an old T-shirt and paint-stained shorts. But, I did manage to get dressed in some stretchy jeans (non maternity and fitted on top with a belly band) and this cute '70s smock. My mom made it from a vintage maternity pattern found on Etsy, and I paired with retro earrings and a vintage clutch. I'm excited to restyle it as a layering piece in the fall...which is coming up, fast. Can you believe Labor Day is the weekend after next?

  1. Such a cute top, I love the print! Yay for Mom's that sew!
    I kind of wish we had found a house closer to the beach when we were shopping but I was trying to avoid flood insurance so it made me nervous, haha!

    1. Believe it or not, our house isn't in the flood zone! It's super close to the water but elevated enough. It was worried about that too!
