Sweater: Goodwill — Skirt: Leah’s free pile — Tights: Spanx — Boots: Macy’s — Earrings: Target — Necklace: DIY (based on a design from Little Treasures by TG)
Marigold and lavender! I had a premonition that these colors would go well together, and I think I was right. (Even though the sweater tends to photograph less gold and more…mari?)
Because the sweater is 100% cotton (or maybe not, I’m not a textiles expert) it tends to get a little slouchy over the course of the day. This goes double for the sleeves, especially when I’n pushing them up and pulling them down all morning long in a futile attempt to regulate my body temperature in our old, poorly-ventilated office building.
And look, I wore my DIY necklace again! I made a few necklaces for people for Christmas and they generally seemed well-pleased with the results. I’ve been itching to branch out and have pinned a number of necklace tutorials to my crafting board; tomorrow I might actually try dip-dying the piece of venice lace applique I received in the mail last week. I’ll keep you posted.
Have you crafted anything lately?
