Blueberries

So I finally have pictures of green shirt in action. This is the second time I've worn it. I think it looks really nice with this dress because it matches the hem and straps.

I feel like I still need a brooch or belt to cinch the waist but I do love this outfit. I wore it to go to home depot. And I ran into some friends and went with them to play some mini golf.

I wore this yesterday to hang out with a friend. His mom really liked my skirt and we both agreed that you can never have too much leopard print.

Simplicity 2501

I've worked on Simplicity 2501 for a little bit. Even though it took me a while to get done because some days I didn't work on it. I really like it and will be making it again. I made view C because I thought the bow collar was really charming.
I didn't put buttons on it because I tried it on and put it to the place where there would be buttons and it looked very unflattering. It looks good on the dress form because she is a smidge smaller than me. But I've decided a brooch on the waist band would be nice. And it become a short sleeved jacket.
This is the best picture of the color. Its a really great shade of green. The collar is done in a cool way. You just pull it through the loop and viola a bow!
This picture illustrates how I would wear it. I need to pick up some brooches but they aren't had to come by. It looks good casual or dressed up. I wore yesterday with a striped tee and shorts and it worked out well.

I'll post pictures of me wearing it soon. I'm going to make one in a blueberry print soon.

Ocean

I went to Key West last week so I'm still feeling a bit ocean-y so here are some nautical finds.
I like these because they are sailor colors and they also look like rope. $19.50
This is a super cute bathing suit. The top is here and the bottoms are here.


This dress makes me think of something a sea goddess would wear if she ever needed to go to land. The pleats and ruffles make this really special. $74.99


This is called the Sailor's lover blouse which I think describes it really well because it's nautical without being a complete sailor suit and it comes in a ton of colors. $79



This dress is like what an evil sea goddess would wear. $87.99

I'll upload some vacation photos soon. They are all on my mom's computer.

Owl

I wore this outfit to pig out on Korean food and go swimming. It turns out that I can't use chopsticks well. This outfit has a real summer vibe.

Purse and necklace- me, romper-JcPenny, belt- Forever 21, hat- Vintage

I love my heart shaped bag. I finished my owl necklace two days ago. My friend and I were hanging out in my backyard and almost got attacked by an owl. After he left I finished my necklace. I moved it to a smaller hoop and trimmed and glued the fabric to the hoop. I want to get a chain for it because right now its just on a string.
