I have been a little distanced from my blog lately, but I am here now. I am happy to share I finally enrolled in sewing lessons. If you read my about section you know it has been a goal of mine since high school. So far I learned to make a drawstring bag and a zippered pouch. I am working on a skirt now. It’s so exciting.
I also have a couple of fun summer outfits to share.
As it shows in this outfit I love playing around with prints and patterns. The skirt with the navy tank top would have worked fine but adding the colorful kimono brought the outfit to life. Since the top is the wow factor I kept it simple with denim sandals to continue the blue streak. Adding any other color would have been overwhelming.
This lovely dress I wore on my birthday, to a late brunch celebration. I love this dress because of its unique pattern and it hugs my curves nicely. It is sexy but not too revealing. Again because the dress itself it very busy I had to keep my shoes simple. I decided on the tan wedges which blend in with the tan and yellow in the dress. This outfit is pretty versatile, it is fun enough for an afternoon affair but also elegant enough for a night event.
Floral prints and maxi skirts are in this summer making this skirt the best of both worlds. Because the skirt is so bold a plain shirt seemed most suitable. I felt the top was too boring which I resolved by integrating the necklace which complimented the pink in the skirt and balanced out the outfit.
To conclude this post I present to you my latest creations. A bright yellow drawstring bag and a denim zippered pouch. Not perfect yet but I am putting a lot of effort into it. Stay tune to see how the skirt turns out.
