Better Timing

Tank: Thrifted
Shorts: Joe Fresh
Sandals: Aldo
Hat: Walk About Hats
BCBG Necklace: Thrifted
Purse: Milano Market
Sunnies: Le Chateau

Nope, I am not wearing the Vogue jacket I had said I would sew and complete over the weekend. This is me enjoying a bit of the lovely weather we had yesterday, even though then the wind came up and I was stuck clinging to my hat for the rest of the outing! I am enjoying the fall colors though!

I did not get the Vogue jacket done as expected. In future when setting timelines for myself I should perhaps do a little recon and recognize how much there really is to do, not to mention inconvenient house issues that arise and take up precious sewing time! This jacket has a lot of pieces, and I was also thinking it was unlined for some reason. I am glad it's lined, plus I found some great printed lining in my stash this weekend, but when I said I would just whip it up on Saturday, I had not even cut out the pattern yet... Then I realized I had not washed my fabric (that I could remember anyways...). I have got most of it sewn together, just the collar to do and then move onto the lining....

Have I mentioned that my domestic machine is still not wanting to sew buttonholes and now I give up and will take it in for a service! I think I forgot to mention that when I posted about my pants, thats why I was wearing a belt! I do have the most fabulous star button for them too!

Also, my laptop is still not back so I am sorry for not responding to comments as much as I usually do. Hopefully I'll have it back soon and life will be so much better!


  1. So jealous of your warm weather! I'm glad you're at least wearing Fall colours though :)

  2. Love that frilly vest! Great outfit, looks perfect on ya!

  3. I love that beautiful brown pattern with the green shorts. And I don't blame you for enjoying the weather while you can - at least around where I live, good weather is usually hard to come by, especially on the weekends. :)

  4. Well this answers my question a couple of posts ago haha. It looks very fallish where you are, I love it. I am back in DK, and haven't noticed too much pretty foliage yet :(


Thanks for leaving a comment, they make me all warm and fuzzy!
