1940s 1950s plus size vintage fashion retro curly poodle pinup hair easy updo

A few weeks ago, I got these awesome elastic waist granny chic jeans and I basically want to wear them every single day. They're made for petites so they're cropped on my tall frame they have a very high waist with some stretch in the fabric, making them of pajama pants comfort.

 I paired them with a thrifted button up smock in crazy bright colors that looks exactly like the shirts that my great grandma, Marmar used to wear. I need 6 cats, my knitting and cat eye glasses. Elastic waist pants are probably at the top of the list of things you shouldn't wear in public but I don't care, I'm 30, I can wear mom pants if I want to!

This morning, we had to go grocery shopping and my hair was a mess so I tried a Betty Grable inspired poodle updo for the first time. It was so quick and simple, I'll probably be wearing this look more often. Check out my little quickie tutorial on Instagram and stay tuned for a more thorough tutorial coming up soon.

Along with my Granny jeans, I wore some new jewelry from Jubly Umph, which I've been admiring on Instagram for a long time. Jumbly Umbh jewelry is designed in Melbourne, Australia. It is printed on stainless steel, coated with resin. I also got a few Jumbly Umph cards, which are too cute to use so I'm going to hang them by my desk. Look at the adorable packaging and little details!  I'm wearing the Crafty Tape Measure brooch and cupcake stud earrings
