Good morning! How was your weekend? We had one of those great ones with zero scheduling. Lazy, easy, happy. I did spend several hours moving around furniture in our living room in an attempt to make it more efficient for my creative endeavors, only to move it all back to the way it was originally. At least I got to dust behind all the furniture (and whoa, those dust bunnies were a sight to behold).
This week’s outfit was a hit with K. She’s been voicing her concerns that I seem to only make clothes that fit my taste and that I’m not making enough “pretty” and “girly” clothes. I think we found a compromise with this one.
The bow on the teal linen blend top added enough girliness to make her happy, and was simple enough in design for me (I shy away from frou frou). It also helps that she loves all shades of blue. Above she is mock-meditating, complete with eyes closed.
We are both ardent fans of polka dots and I just have to try to add grey to every outfit whenever I can. And I thought it would be fun to make cropped pants out of flannel (or “Cozy Cotton by Robert Kaufman” as it’s officially called) if only for the novelty of it.
And look! She’s mastered the “Talk to the hand” pose. Or maybe it’s the “Scout’s Honor” pose. I would prefer that to the former. A little bit more of the bow detail here:
FYI, we are finally upgrading my server situation to prevent future blog outages. Tonight! Which means I’m sure everything will go haywire and it will be weeks before I can post again. But fingers crossed and scout’s honor that I’ll try my best to be back tomorrow.
