first day of spring skirt

Its the first day of spring, but the weather is playing it cool and acting like its not a big deal. I think a thunderstorm is predicted for later. But our newly planted seeds need some water anyway!

My second skirt for the upcoming season is this floral creation. I’ve already worn it a couple times. The pattern is super simple, and I added a little roundness to the hem in the back. A perfect breezy skirt for when it finally decides to be springtime.

vintage find

Look at these beauties I found while cleaning out my closet back home!

Let’s bring overalls back into style this spring. I think maybe some shortening or rolling on these ones will give them an updated look. And here are a couple newer pairs so you can share the style. Happy springtime!

a new skirt

After spending a week in the sunny, almost spring of the northwest, its kind of a bummer to come to the cold, drizzly south. But at least I have this new skirt for sunnier thoughts. Its my first time sewing a knit, and it actually went pretty smoothly. The bottom of the skirt is a flowy, cascading shape, so I had to model it to show it off. I’m looking forward to wearing more skirts this spring!

guy’s fall wardrobe

I am eternally grateful that Jon has great style. I never worry about him dressing himself. Over the past couple years, he has managed to phase out most of his older, college frat-guy clothes, and replace them with very classic pieces that he can mix and match and always look put-together.

We usually go through our clothes every season and rotate/donate as necessary, but since everyone is doing these fall wardrobes recently, we thought it would be fun to do a guy version. So here is Jon’s fall wardrobe. It is 40 pieces total, including his shoes and accessories. Here is a snapshot, but you can click through the post to see all the choices!

It was pretty fun watching him carefully choose his wardrobe!
