Weekend

Sweater: Express, Shirt: JCrew, Skirt: Made by me, Belt: Thrifted, Shoes: DSW, Earrings: F21
I have a stash of projects that stare at me everyday, begging to get done. Alas, I just stare right back and walk away. Until this past week, I finally took a few untouched projects to town and whipped up something that I'm at least proud enough of I dared wear it in public. Every time I looked down, I laughed that I was wearing the fabric that was intended to recover my ottoman. But thankfully, I don't think I was walking around looking like a couch cushion all day, so I figured it was ok.

Making the skirt wore me out, so the rest of the weekend we just sat around, watched football, and ate delicious food. I think that's how weekends are supposed to be spent, being lazy and eating good food. And now it's back to work, where life isn't quite as exciting.

Happy Monday morning!

Ooh, I love the really subtle stripe. I never would have guessed it was meant for a couch cushion.

I also love your toenail polish. What a great color!

Wow, nice job with that skirt! And I'm loving this whole outfit. The Tee is super cute, and that belt was a great thrifted find :)

Oh, that was me, Cynthia, I guess Lindsay has been using my computer and signed onto my account.

Tutorial, tutorial! I am just learning to sew and pencil skirts are my fave. I love how the structured skirt offsets the casual graphic print. Cute, cute.

So jealous! I LOVE that skirt. I have been wanting a sewing machine for a while now. You have motivated me to get it in gear. Your skirt is beautiful and I adore the material.
