Waters Wears: Bohemian Stripes

stripes1

I wore this outfit a few weeks ago out with friends to eat sushi, followed by hanging out in a bookstore for hours. (Can we do this like, every weekend, please?)

I have mixed feelings about this dress. I love the stripes, the colors, but the way the sleeves are made – meant to have an oversized tee feeling – makes your shoulders seem broader than they really are, to me. But it’s comfortable, and has definitely been a great thing to have post-having baby to easily throw on.

Again, wearing my mother’s old necklace. A favorite I wear often.

Hope you’re all having a beautiful day! God bless!

Waters Wears: Fourth of July

I wore this outfit on the Fourth of July, which is also my husband’s birthday. His mom and stepdad took us out for lunch, and it was a lot of fun.

This is a new necklace. It was a birthday gift from my best friend, Kelsey. It’s lovely and sparkly, and it’s my favorite, a butterfly.

My husband took a few days off for vacation after his birthday, and the kiddo and I definitely enjoyed having him home with us for an extended holiday.

If you’re from the US, I sincerely hope you had a good Fourth. Much love, and God bless!

Vintage Crochet Collars

Just to clarify at the beginning here, I did not make any of these collars.

My aunt gave me these several years ago while doing a house clean out/reorganization, and I adore them.

The buttons are meant to go on the back.

I thought I would share for some inspiration. I love the details of the tiny thread-crocheted collars, and the floral details on that last one, especially. I always mean to wear them more often, but either forget or can’t seem to find something in my closet that has a neckline and style to work with them. They would look great over a simple, solid-color smock or a-line dress. Or over a simple t-shirt with some jeans and flats.

Waters Wears: Alpine Influence?

Alp influence yes 1

Maybe it’s the fedora, but this outfit reminds me of German/Austrian attire. My husband and I actually have authentic lederhosen and dirndl, but that is another photoset for another day. Many people don’t like fedoras, but I do like them and feel there is a way to wear them that doesn’t look like you’re trying too hard. I think they can look especially cute paired with some simple flats.

This shirt is one I took from the few clothes my mom had saved from her childhood. It’s one of my favorites. I especially like it because it’s long, something you don’t always find in plaid button ups.

The belt is one I crocheted maybe three or four years ago, and I wear it a lot, either as a belt or headband. It’s a pretty simple design and has held up well over the years. It’s one of the pieces that I’ve worn out and had people ask me if I can make them one of their own, so that’s pretty cool!

Guys, I really love this fedora. My husband got it for me because I mentioned that I’d wanted one for years, literally YEARS, and I wear it so much. Definitely one of my favorite clothing items right now.

I love the ruching on these shorts, and the fact that they’re longer than most short shorts, but they do have the weirdest way of doing pockets, haha.

I wore this for another day walking around the city. Walking around two cities, to be exact. My husband helped with a few of the pictures this time around, too.
