on the grid.

 This dress was actually the first I ever made, but it was way too warm to wear it until now!

Photos by my husband.







What I'm wearing:
Dress: Tilly & the Buttons Stevie pattern, brushed cotton from JoAnn Fabrics
Jacket: Old Navy
Boots: DSW

I was so excited to finally wear this dress, and I absolutely love the feel of this brushed cotton. I know I'll be getting a lot of wear out of this as it gets colder! Also, the Stevie is one of my favorite patterns—highly recommend for beginners!

don't blink.

 A simple jeans & t-shirt outfit, but featuring a t-shirt I made!

Photos by my husband.





What I'm wearing:
T-Shirt: Made by me, modified Seamwork Rory
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: DSW
Necklace: Loft, old

I snagged a little more than a yard of this fabric from the Finch Studio sidewalk sale, and honestly was a little afraid to use it because I love it so much. I used the Rory pattern for the most part, but didn't do the bottom band or tie, and didn't turn the neckband under. It was a really fast project and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! Obviously, I have a thing for eye prints lately 👀

fall florals.

 This outfit is what I would call quintessential fall casual.

Photos by my husband.







What I'm wearing:
Dress: Old Navy, thrifted
Jacket: Old Navy, old
Boots: White Mountain via ThredUp
Necklaces: Madewell
Rings: Baublebar, gifts, old

I thrifted this dress in my first thrift trip since the start of the pandemic, about a month or so ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how much I like the fit and style. I'm all about loose dresses lately, bonus points for a cute print with an autumnal color palette.

eye on you.

 I can't believe we're halfway through October already! It's been a pretty busy couple of weeks, hence the lack of posts.







What I'm wearing:
T-Shirt: Old Navy
Sweater: J.Crew Factory
Boots: BP, old
Necklace: vintage

This outfit was one of those ones that came together so easily and was so comfortable—perfect for working from home. I discovered Harkel via an Instagram ad, and I really like what I've seen so far—their aesthetic reminds me of old school ModCloth. This skirt is super soft, stretchy, and has embroidered eyes on it! 

Also, how cool are these earrings? They're so fun and sparkly, and handmade!

Have a great weekend!

double knit.

 This is an entirely me-made outfit, featuring my first two knit projects!

Photos by my husband.







What I'm wearing:
Top: Seamwork Rory in cotton spandex from Cali Fabrics
Skirt: Megan Nielsen Veronika in poly spandex from SoSewEnglish
Shoes: DSW, old
Necklace: gift

I made both of these as-is with no modifications, and I think for my next Rory I'll probably lengthen the bodice a little bit. I'm not thrilled with how the neckline turned out—it ended up a bit stretched out and stiff, so I think the topstitching may have been unnecessary. But this whole outfit is another 'secret pajamas' type outfit!
