Outfit: Great-Grandfather's Trousers
You guys, these PANTS. I was rifling through some more boxes of stuff at my grandparents' house when I stumbled upon these high-waisted, cuffed trousers with some sort of a brown sheen to the fabric. I just about shrieked! They were glorious! They have the name D. Jones written in the waistband. That's David Jones, my great-grandfather, and while I never met him I have to imagine he was quite short in his old age, because these are cropped pants on me! I was so excited when I tried them on and they fit so well. They are a bit big in the waist, but nothing a good belt won't fix. Not to mention I wore them to an 8 hour training day last week for my job and they definitely passed the comfy-for-sitting-in-a-metal-chair-for-8-hours test. The only trouble is that I had that thrift store song stuck in my head all day. I don't know the song well but there is that line about wearing your granddad's clothes? Yep, played in my head the whole time :)
I also decided that because there were roses on my scarf, I had to mirror that in my hair and tried some large pincurls, which were so fun to wear. I also had curly hair afterword, so win-win in my book.
And don't forget to check out my shop this week too! I've added a bunch of really fun vintage blouses with pretty collars and things :) Here is the link!
I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
