Hello friends! I know it has been a while since I wrote a new post, so I thank you for your patience. I had every intention of keeping up with my weekly outfit posts, but that didn’t happen. So today I’m sharing some outfits from August as well as September so far.
I made this dress for a family event early in August. I used a really simple Butterick pattern and made this dress in a couple hours. I LOVE this dress, and am looking forward to wearing it with dark tights and boots this fall/winter.
I can’t remember when or why I wore this outfit, but it was one I repeated during the summer. The top is actually from the kid’s section of Old Navy and it fits really well! It is a looser cut that is a bit shorter than I’d prefer, but I just layer it over a long tank top.
I made this white blouse earlier in the spring (I think) and it is one of my favourites…yes, I have a lot of them!
Here is another dress I made from the same pattern as earlier. I used a heavier fabric but it was not too hot to wear in August. I remember this day because my allergies were so awful! David and I went into the backyard to take this picture and I had a sneezing fit!
I worked part time during the summer, and on my days off I was either too busy or too tired to put any effort into dressing nicely. This tee shirt has been my go-to for years, and I’m guessing I wore that skirt with it because it was clean!
This is a colourful church outfit, consisting of my beloved camera skirt, and a blouse I made.
Another cool day! I actually wore a scarf!!
This was clearly a puffy hair, not going anywhere kind of day!
Youth group started up again this month. Once again I am providing leadership for the older teen group. I wore this outfit for my first week back, and the plaid shirt is a new look for me. I have worn plaid before, but it always felt too masculine. This top has lovely colours though, and it used to be a men’s button down! I did some reshaping and hemming, and turned it into a top I really enjoy wearing. David gave it the thumbs up and said I should wear plaid more often.
Yet another home sewn dress! I have been using the same pattern lately because it is quick and easy to modify. I wore this outfit for a birthday dinner.
I tend to get pretty cold once the sun goes down, so I snuggled into this cozy thrifted sweater for a fun evening of When Calls the Heart and knitting!
I went out to Starbucks with someone from church, and wore this casual outfit. Previously I had been catching up on housework and sewing.
This photo shows my go-to hairstyle lately: chunky braid, folded over with a flexi clip, and my easy brown lace covering.
I LOVE this dress, and have never thought to wear an orange cardigan with it until recently. Oh yeah, and that is Laverne with me:)
