Heading Into the Home Stretch!
Monday, June 20: Third Time's A Charm
This chic little number is fantastic! I love that it's reversible, that it packs down to practically nothing, and that it's easy to dress up or down. This is the third time I've made this dress, so I really like it! This time, I used Sandra Betzina's method and lined only the skirt so I wouldn't have to hem it. I'll do just about ANYTHING to get out of hemming!
- LB(rown)D travel dress: M6069
- Necklace: Made by me (I bled for this little piece of stained glass!)
- Jean Jacket: Calvin Klein
Tuesday, June 21: Going In Circles
It was 83º here today, so I thought I wear a summer dress. I made this knit dress when I started sewing a few years ago. It gets a TON of wear in the warmer months and the circles hide a multitude of sins. What's not to love?
- Dress: S3503
- Necklace & Bracelet: Made by me
- Cardi: Refashioned
Wednesday, June 22: Solid Gold
The weather turned warm-ish (hence the wrap), so it's time to rock my gold top! I bought the sky-high wedges and white pants last weekend, and couldn't resist wearing them ASAP. I can't believe I made it through an entire day without getting something on these pants! Last time I wore white pants, they made it two hours before I spilled coffee on them. I thought I was cursed.
- Top: NL6356
- Necklace/pants/shoes: NY&Co.
- Cuff: Made by Me
- Pashmina: Ebay
Thursday, June 23: Channeling Chanel
Cold and rainy again today, so it was a great opportunity to wear my Chanel jacket. It was my greatest sewing achievement this year. I feel like I'm a grown-up when I wear this, since it so fancy!
- Chanel jacket: V7975
- Necklace, Pants and Tank Top: NY&Co.
- Shoes: Thrifted (Patent Crocodile! Yay!)
Friday, June 24: Red Hot
This swing cardi is getting a lot of wear these days. The weather is still...variable here in June, so I needed something to keep me warm. I rarely wear this tank, so it was fun to break it out. I really like the red and brown combination!
- Swing Cardi: M5241
- Tank: Max Studio (thrifted)
- Necklace: NY&Co.
