Style: I Love Teal

0 Comment

This is an outfit from last week. I have about 2 pairs of pants that fit me at the moment, and they’re in the wash, so I’ve been wearing dresses and skirts a lot. This might be a bit fancy for the day-to-day, but it was a fun outfit to wear.

  • top: hand-me-down + refashioned
  • necklace: handmade
  • bracelet: Target
  • skirt: c/o Ruche
  • shoes: Payless

Style: Button-Up Refashion Result


Kate from See Kate Sew made a yellow striped jumper for me. Interestingly enough, she was in Utah last month to hand it to me in person. It was so great to meet her in person! I’ve loved this refashion swap, but the thing that would make it infinitely better is if we were able to make these clothes and swap them all in-person. Project Runway style.

Kate knew how much I love yellow, she did a fantastic job of scoring this light yellow stripe for me. It’s such a fun color!

I don’t wear jumpers, at least I haven’t in a very long time, so it’s fun to have gotten something that pushes me out of my normal comfort zone.

I used to be far more adventurous with my wardrobe than I am now. I was the first in my high school to wear stilettos. I’ll never forget sporting my camel stiletto booties; feeling super self conscious as I clicked and clacked my way down the hall turning heads and I’m sure getting plenty of disgusted looks. I was no popular girl. It’d be safe to say that I was more of a “popular loser”. Most people knew who I was. Probably because I always lugged around my 30 lb portfolio the size of a small bilboard like a security blanket. But I never quite felt like I fit in. My ridiculous pairings of hot-pink golashes with 3-piece suits was my way of keeping the tame people away I guess. Oh what I would give to see snapshots of those outfits I wore back then.

Kate reminded me that I need to be more adventurous with my clothing. So for the next half of the year, that’s going to be my goal.

Style: It’s Raining Cats & Dogs


Todays weather has been a bit nuts. It started out  a tad warm, we got a crazy dust/wind storm and then it started raining cats and dogs. I took the kids on some errands, so I got to wear my favorite rain coat.

Style: Friends and Florals


Me, Muffin, Melanie, Alma

And yes, that would be me wearing the same floral top two days in a row. And my fly at half mast. But that’s how I roll around here. I had a great time with friends this afternoon.

Style: Indecision


I don’t know if the weather is similar in your neck of the woods, but around here no one knows if it’s spring or fall. I dressed for both. Bright summery colors paired with subdued fall tones is really fun. And different. I like different.

These photos are so grainy, and the white balance is completely off. I took these photos at 7:30 at 4000ISO. But still, my old camera would never get pictures this nice at such a poor time of day.
