Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! You have been a great example of success in marriage for us. Have a great day and we can have a big celebration next time we are all together. Congrats!
What a month! It was a great challenge to wear (and document) 30 days of self-stitched items. I had some successes and failures but it did help me identify some gaps in my sewing. Specifically, casual items for warmer weather.
Anyway, how did I complete the month? Day 29 I wore my black and gold elastic-waist skirt with my DKNY Cozy cardigan. This can be worn multiple ways but I decided to add the ring to the waist for a little texture.
The last day of the challenge had me pull out my teal knit top. I love this top. I wore it with jeans for casual Friday along with a silver chain with iridescent shell pendant.
For fun I wore my brand new Converse runners with purple and silver sequins.
I can’t believe at the ripe age of 39 I bought my first pair of Converse shoes. I’ve loved Converse since…well…
To follow up on my last post about tights and open-toed shoes, the Toronto Globe and Mail style section had a Q&A about open-toed shoes and tights. Turns out, I was right! As long as the look is intentional it is okay. (Disclaimer: I don’t really think we need fixed rules or have to get style gospel from “experts”. I do appreciate a little help though. Have fun and feel confident in whatever you wear!)
