Day 31 – better late than never

So yes, I did actually wear a dress on March 31, the last day in the challenge, but then I forgot to post my picture of it. That was the hardest thing about the challenge, really, was to remember to take and post the pictures. This dress (as well as the sweater and purse) came […]

Days 18 to 30 – Almost Done!

March is almost over, and with it, the Month with no Jeans challenge. I’ve almost made it, though yesterday would have been a day where I’d really loved to have worn jeans since it was a rather wet, drizzly day! My bro-in-law David is visiting us and yesterday he and I drove out to UC […]

Day 2 – Neutrals & Stripes!

Today I’m wearing a little grey sweater jumper which Erin gave to me a long time ago. She didn’t wear it much when she had it, and I didn’t either. No time like the present! It’s paired with a little black empire-waisted top, which matches the waistline of the jumper, another item which sits unworn in […]

March – a month without jeans

Every time I see a cute dress or a great outfit, I think, “I want to wear that!” For my birthday I bought myself Cal Patch’s amazing Design-It-Yourself Clothes. It’s a step-by-step guide to drafting patterns and creating custom-fit clothes. I have made a few patterns so far and am now in the muslin stage of […]
