I have loved this theme! It has been so much fun not to mention rewarding to my wardrobe which was seriously lacking in the sweater department.
Part of me thought it would be sort of cool to do another month of makeover skirts or pants or dresses. But I have to admit that I do miss sewing from scratch and the thrill of designing something of your own. Dresses mainly. Dresses are my passion. Part of me is torn between that and embellishing. It's fun to have such an immediate reward for little work.
Let's recall my top 5 favorites from the past month!
Okay by overall favorite was Day 17. It was cute, whimsical and flattering to my shape. The balloon also rocked! Brian's youngest sister just got engaged and has asked ME to take her engagement photos! How flattering! So aside from being totally nervous I plan on using one of these 3' balloons. Anyone else have any suggestions? Our biggest obsticle will be the blah weather. Althooooough the forecast is saying it might snow which would be IDEAL!
Ahh my second favorite Day 14. I wore this all around town and felt so interesting in it. The orange and blue were a great combination of colors!
And I know you just saw it yesterday but I loved the floaty feel of Day 30. I knew I would the moment I started cutting the chiffon. It's such a lovely fabric to wear.
Day 8. Looked even cuter in person. It was so soft and comfy and warm I couldn't help but wear it all week. To pick Lily up from school, to dental appointments to the fabric store....
And finally Day 3! It was right around the time the leaves were starting to change and everything felt autumnal. Boots were most appropriate and paired with this plaid wool skirt sewn on the bias I LOVED the overall look of this embellishment. It was one of the first outfits that really felt 'put together' for me.
Okay I couldn't help but mention one more. Day 9 was definitely one of my favorites too. The plum hue of the flower and the gathered ribs of the remake all looked pleasing to my eye. I wore this to a couple girl scout meetings, the movie's and Brian's parent's house.
I spent so little on these cardigans. I like to think that even if you don't have a lot of money to spend on expensive outfits, you don't have to be resigned to boring 'mom' clothes.
So there you have it! What were your favorites?
