And then all of a sudden it is August 11th.
I have been away for a little while mostly because I was on a surprise birthday road trip with my boyfriend (who planned AND manged to keep it a secret) to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, Colorado…and then I had to recover from my road trip, I will be posting more on that later on…hopefully the day after my birthday which is tomorrow…..wooohoooo
In the meantime I’m here to share a little photo shoot I did with my handmade skirt after a work meeting the other day. The office I “work out of” is at the LA River Center and Gardens so it’s a pretty lush green place in the middle of a very urban landscape. If this skirt seems familiar to you then you get an A+ for paying attention because it is made from the same fabric as this handmade shirt, what can I say…I like a bold black and white polka dot.
I became best friends with this plant.
The necklace I wear almost 24/7.
These shoes have become a fast favorite (after I broke them in and bandaged my wounds) they are comfortable flats that immediately class up an outfit.
I was feeling down on myself so I sewed a new shirt.
My neighbors probably think I’m a crazy person jumping around in heels in the back yard.
I am VERY proud of my brand new shirt.
I’m trying my best to add more color to wardrobe habits because, as you can see from my last outfit post, it has fallen into the land of monochrome, I don’t mind the black and white but this leaves most of my closet untouched. Now when I think about adding “color” my brain automatically screams ADD SPARKLES!, (is sparkle not a color??) unfortunately for me I have to be a productive working adult so my sparkle outfits can’t be as crazy as they were in College so I have to find creative ways to wear on of my favorite colors (yep sparkle is totally a color).
These days my closet is pretty black and white, I’m not sure why but I like it. #sorrynotsorry
