The official first day of summer is just one week away (June 20th), but the temperatures here in Colorado have already sky rocketed into the 90 degree area! Not my favorite, why couldn't we have had an actual spring please? It went straight from snow to Sahara.
I suppose I don't have much time for spring florals left, not that florals end with spring. Still, the softest of pale pink chiffons does seem best suited to the delicate pastel palettes of springtime. I found this skirt while out shopping recently rather unexpectedly, as I don't usually find clothes at TJMaxx, but I was surprised to see this lovely skirt on the rack waiting for me. It isn't my usual color palette or shape but it was so pretty I couldn't resist! Dare I say it is on the girly side for me, I have never been one for pink normally. I was happy to see I could pair the sheer forest green blouse I picked up thrifting last year with the greens in the floral pattern. Then of course I couldn't resist getting to use my new forest green vintage handbag I acquired recently too! I need to stop shopping--no seriously, I need to stop shopping.
Less shopping, more sewing, that's the plan! I have plenty of fabrics waiting to become new frocks, and it's high time I got back to working with them! I am a natural maximalist, I could never live with a capsule wardrobe for example, but I do wonder if all of you would tire of seeing me repeat things here on the blog? Also please give me your best shopping ban tips so I can learn to be frugal :)
