Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

What I Wore Saturday







I don't do fashion posts very often, because, let's face it. Who really wants to see what I wear to Mass on Saturday? In the interest of documentation, however, I am including this little post for future reference. Just in case I ever wonder what I wore on the second weekend of June when I was forty-nine years old.

Madison is such an inspiration to me, as well as a confidence booster. She makes me feel comfortable in clothing I used to worry about wearing. Case in point, retro dresses. As you may or may not know, I dream of living in the 1950s. Now, thanks to my daughter and her eye for fashion, I can at least dress like I do. And you know, wearing dresses is actually easier and more comfortable. Those women knew what they were doing back then!

Thanks for stopping by, my friends.
Have a wonderful, cozy summer week!

DRESS: Vintage-inspired from Madison's dress shop.
     BAG: Coach Tote from Macy's available HERE.
SHOES: Bella Vita~ I have had them forever.

  5. Funny, I always said I was born later than I should have bee. I always anted to be Donna Reed vacuuming in pearls. If I had been born 20 ears earlier I would have had a husband that could support me and I could have stayed home with my kids and been a house wife. Al I ever wanted to do was have a beautiful home and be a house wife.

  13. How fun! I agree - dresses are so comfortable and easy. They also fit my body so much better and they just make me feel prettier. One of my least favorite parts of nursing my babies is not be able to wear dresses for a year ha!
    You both look beautiful!
