Clothed with Grace: Bold Colors and Gingham

Bold Colors and Gingham

Creating outfit is pretty fun to do, in my opinion.  I usually spend part of Grant's nap on a Saturday laying out different looks on my closet floor and snapping pictures for the future.  I was especially excited about this outfit and actually wore it last week and showed it on Instagram here. I felt confident all day, then came home and snapped some quick pictures. Some outfits are definitely worth repeating and I think this is one of them :) 

In exciting news, its about a month until Go Blog Social!  I went August and am excited to go again with my sister.  Grant is going to stay home with Dad, so I'll have all weekend to hang out with my sister and learning about fun blogging stuff.  Anyone else in the Midwest going?  I didn't get the chance to connect with any blogging friends in the fall, but I'm really hoping to see some familiar faces this time. Who's in???

  5. The colors in this outfit make me so very happy :) I wish they had more blogger social stuff near Maryland. It bums me out that the bloggers I like best are so far away. WAH.

    Anyway, you always make me want to add more vests to my wardrobe.
