Win and Lose

[gray top: gap, striped skirt: made by me (fabric from, silver metallic sandals: target, belt: cozy boutique, silver stud earrings: tiffany’s, watch: dkny]

This morning I woke up and couldn’t find anything in my closet that I wanted to wear. I often have days like that, but today was different because I actually had a solution to that problem. I went to my fabric box, pulled out my favorite silver and white striped fabric, and made myself a skirt. It’s not the prettiest thing in the world (it has no hem or waistband), but I think it looks cute and it has managed to stay up on my hips this far into the day, so I count that a win.

However, that win is negated since I’m having possibly the worst hair day ever. That’s what I get for being vain. I’ve been sufficiently humbled.

Happy Tuesday. Hope your hair looks better than mine.

    I hate this problem. So often I hate the clothes in my closet, especially because of baby fat I still have. :S

    I love that skirt! Good job!

    I want my bad hair days to look like yours!! You are so pretty. And whipping up a new outfit because you don't have one you like… very impressive. You can move in any time!

  3. I wish my good hair days looked like your bad ones! Super cute skirt. Please come sew me some clothes. Have I asked you that before? Maybe I just think it every time I read your blog.

    That skirt is adorable, when I saw the pictures I couldn't wait to see where you got it so I could snag one for myself… My sewing skills are seriously lacking so I will just have to be on the lookout for a cute skirt like yours!

    Yours might be my favorite monochromatic outfit I've seen posted here today. So kudos for that, and for making half of it yourself.
