Freckles in April: Menswear

Menswear

Thrifted shirt, Wal Mart suspenders, JCPenney skirt, Payless shoes, Target watch, assorted gifted bracelets

You had to know I was going to go with the suspenders.

I actually had something completely different in mind but I was on vacation and so my options were limited and this is what I came up with. I actually really liked the way it turned out, especially with my hair (which you can't really see but was vaguely 40s inspired).

I have to admit though that at one point we went to visit Aaron's aunt and uncle and I felt kind of stupid wearing this. I kept wondering if they thought I was a weirdo for wearing suspenders. I guess I'm not 100% comfortable in my clothes yet!

Quick note of non-challenge related business- I wrote a guest post for Dana of What the Frock while she's away on a fantastic and belated Alaskan honeymoon. It's about my fictional boyfriend, Ned (sigh). Go check it out!

  8. Very cute! I vaguely remember suspenders being very popular at some point in my childhood. Maybe I should reinvest!
