Travel Day - 8/6/15

I'm headed off to Michigan this evening, and dressed for the plane ride.  Comfy jeans and tee (another linen one!), and scarf that can double as a wrap if necessary.

Reminiscing through my wardrobe - 8/5/15

Back in high school, I had a shirt I loved dearly, as evidenced by this oh so awesome (seriously, what was I thinking?) senior photo:


Side note:  I had actually made that skirt as well, from two scarves my uncle brought back from Hong Kong.  It was probably one of the first actual garments I made that I ended up wearing.

Any-who, fast forward to today, where I had found this yellow shirt (again with the putrid yellow), and the gathering at the neckline and armholes really reminded me of my old favorite shirt.  Fun times down the memory rack of my closet.

  


Such a peacock - 8/2/15

This is definitely what you would call a statement piece.  I bought it at a consignment shop a few years ago and I love it.  But when I bought it, it had sleeves, and was just a tad too small, so every time I would wear it, it would rip down the center back seam and every now and then around the arms.  So I would sew it back up and wear it again.  I don't know why it took me so long to figure out that if I took off the sleeves it would ease up the tension, and actually fit properly, so here it is, as a vest!

This is the first time I had ever worn it with shorts, and  I do think it looks better with pants, now that I see the photos.  My usual outfit pairings are skinny black pants, black turtleneck, and tall black boots.
