There was always something missing from this Lindy Bop sweater I picked up last year, so I recently sat down with a needle and thread and fixed it up! (Don't worry, DIY coming later this week!)
I don't have nearly enough sequins in my wardrobe anyway, so it was high time to add some sparkle somewhere! This plaid skirt however is a drop in the sea of plaid in my closet, but plaids are such a snap to style with all of those colors that I can't help but welcome ever more into my wardrobe. I do have some rather loud yellow plaid taffeta that I should probably turn into a crazy dress sometime soon. I do fear whether I would look okay in so much yellow however, as I'm not sure it always agrees with my skin tone even if I love it. I felt strange wearing so little jewelry with this outfit, but now the sweater has a sort of built in necklace, more jewelry just wasn't necessary!
As you can see by the lack of snow on the ground in these photos, we are still experiencing oddly warm weather for February. Still, it was rather windy, which is always a bother when you have your curls just so! On the projects front I am still experiencing a bit of a sewers block unfortunately (like writers block? yes? hmm...sure) which has made progress on my to-sew list so slow this year. I think part of it is just all the trouble with my regular bodice pattern holding me back mentally from wanting to fix that hurdle and be able to perfect the pattern. I have to dive back in sometime though, as I do have some deadlines (due to upcoming travels (!)) coming up that I want to have lots of things finished for! More coffee perhaps? Always.
