It's a family Affair

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, one of my favorite perks about being married to Doug is that his mother randomly (and frequently) gifts me with the coolest stuff from when she was my age. I swear the woman must have spent the entire decades of her 20’s and 30’s shopping.
This outfit is comprised of many such treasures.

Check out these boots. They are spring boots made from linen of some sort. So cute and so current.

The belt is not even from Mother-in-law’s collection, it is from Doug’s late father. He apparently had more clothing than his mother and spent twice as long “dressing.”

The purse is Gucci. I am in love with it. I bought it on Ebay, several years after I fell in love with it because I am patient and once I fall in love I NEVER fall out(thus Doug and I’s 9 year engagement).

And is that a sweater set? Why, yes it is. This is my one and only sweater set.

Someday I will pass all this on to Baby Dean's wife...that undeserving gold digging bitch.
