What I Wore: Black Floral Skirt



If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably heard me gush about my recent sewing classes at StitchLab (if you are in Austin, check them out). And with good reason, because through them I now know how to make a skirt. In fact, I made the skirt in this outfit post!! Lace trim and all, completely done by me. I am PUMPED about this new skill. I’ve already made another skirt (at home – unsupervised!) and have fabric to make a few more. It’s going to be a skirt craze over here for awhile. 😀

Luckily the weather has warmed up enough the past few days to make outdoor photo shoots possible. I’m pretty dedicated to this blog, but not to the point of doing photo shoots in 30 degree weather. I don’t know how you northern folk – especially you Canadians! – do it. As the boy likes to say, I’m a delicate flower. Cold is not my friend 😉

Have you ever made your own clothing?

What I Wore: Black & Green

This is what I’m wearing today. An easy summer outfit – cute tank or shirt, shorts, sandals or wedges, and a hat. It’s hard to tell in these pictures, but the front of the tank is lace, which I think adds a nice detail. Also, the more I wear this hat, the more I love it. I’m becoming a hat person – who knew? 🙂 Not much in the way of news since yesterday. Work as normal. Still printing up a storm in anticipation of next weekend’s craft party. Still trying to plan my outfits for the conference this weekend. […]

What I Wore: Tribal to the Max

Small glimpse into the inner workings of my mind: I have been thinking of this dress as a tribal print, since the pattern has a sort of hand-drawn quality to it up close (see the detail shot farther down). So I named the post accordingly. Then I went to link to the dress below, and saw it was called ‘geometric’ print on the product listing. And there was this whole back and forth in my head as to whether that was just the store being PC or if I was wrong in filing the dress under the tribal category to […]

What I Wore: Black Lace & Mint

Hey all. A little late to the game today because I couldn’t be bothered to take outfit pictures yesterday. So this is what I wearing right now. Minty fresh, no? I love these printed jeans, and this cardi is seriously the softest thing. Cozy all around. Oh, and this is my new hairdo. Not the best pics because it was windy and kept blowing in my face, but it gives you an idea. I should’ve taken a before pic before heading out Monday, just so you could see the drastic change. Ah well. I like it. It seems to be […]

What I Wore: Black Scallops

  This is what I’m wearing today. And it’s only 37 degrees outside, and I’m not that dedicated to outfit posts, so indoor shots are the name of the game. They didn’t turn out too badly, I think, though honestly I didn’t spend much time on them. Normally I like to get the What I Wore features ready ahead of time for Wednesday postings, but between holidays and Ian being sick and nasty wet weather here lately, it just didn’t happen this week. But anyway! This sweater. I LOVE it. It is cozy and soft and pretty, and I love […]
