Future DIY

I’ve seen this skirt floating around the Pintersphere (pinterverse?) as well as the blogosphere, and fall more in love with it every time I come upon it. The price, however, is not so friendly. At $115, I just can’t bring myself to hit the checkout button. Partially because I think it would be easy enough to make.

So, Mom (I know you read this!), start looking around work for awning-striped fabric and work on your box-pleating– we’ve got a new project to tackle! Just don’t buy the yellow stripes please, I don’t want to blend in with my drapes.

My friends are the best

date 09-14-2011
cardigan: Target
belt: Thrifted
dress: Forever 21
wedges: DSW
earrings: Alchemists

No post yesterday because I was having an AWESOME time hanging out with the boy and friends yesterday. Lauren cooked us a homemade meal that was delicious and we hung out on her porch drinking beer and listening to the neighbors’ Lady Gaga marathon.

This is what I wore to work and was comfy enough that I didn’t change before heading over for dinner. Simple, no fuss.

(Also, the pictures are not the same because I’m installing CS5 and my Photoshop isn’t working just yet.)

Rainy Daze

date 09-07-2011

jacket: Marshalls
top: Gap
jeans: Old Navy
wellies: Sporto Duck boots

Today was another wonderfully rainy day. Although it was a bit muggy and humid, so I went with something a little lighter. Simple, bright; it actually came out better than I thought it had. Sometimes I spend so much time trying to come up with outfits that are trendy, or fashionable, that I forget that the simplest things can be the best.
