Toddler Tuesday: A happy mismatch

So I decided spontaneously this morning that I am going to try to incorporate my daughter into my daily outfit pics once a week on Tuesdays. I am going to warn you right now, there may be matching outfits in the future, depending on how ambitious I get.

It is kind of relevant, though, because I apply the same thrifty logic to my daughter's wardrobe that I do to my own. And thanks to my mom and others, she even has some fabulous vintage in her closet (although none of it is on display today).

I am getting increasingly attached to this brown velvet blazer, which I bought with the intention of selling it. What can I say, I kind of have a blazer addiction. They can be tough for me to wear, because I often feel really boxy/stout if I don't pair them with the right outfit, but today I felt good in this. This blouse was a total impulse buy, but I haven't regretted it - I always get compliments when I wear it, the color is just so perfect.

I got so busy with toddler wrangling that I forgot my necklace for most of these photos, but here's a glimpse. My husband gave this to me for my birthday last year and I absolutely love it. It was lost for a few months after he cleaned out the nursery (which also happens to be where most of my clothes live) but I recently found it and was ecstatic to be reunited.
