Braided Peach

For once I am actually posting an outfit of what I am wearing on the day I am wearing it! The weather is getting chilly but the sun is beautiful. 

I got this great sweater at the exchange store in my town last week. I normally am not big on wearing sweaters but the color is perfect....don't you think? 

If you follow my personal blog you know that I got a new camera...a more "learned" one and I am just in-love with these pictures. I  LOVE the colors and sharpness of these pictures.

What is your favorite part of this outfit?
Do you like wearing sweaters or are you more a cardigan person?

Statement Necklace

Modern Modesty had a challenge going....and when it came to statement necklaces....I really didn't have one. But then I saw this little bird's nest necklace I did last year. It reminds me of my personal blog "The Blue Birdhouse"....and so its a statement. ☺

The reason I like this outfit is how I matched up colors I would have never put together hadn't it been for the scarf.☺

What do you it ok?

Refashion: Making a Too Big Sweater Fit

I personally don't really ever BUY myself anything new....but I do get things at the exchange store semi regular....there I found awesome things that sometimes are just too big. This sweater was a weird length and 2 sizes to what did I do make it fit like this?

 Click the picture:

Love the fit now....and it's already a favorite.

Refashion: Sewing a Lace Collar

I had a lace collar on this particular shirt....I really liked wearing it but the material of the shirt was dingy. So I decided to remove the lace and sew it on another simple white shirt I had. 

My new found color combination I am loving is coral with brown and white... What do you think?
This is what it was before. ...

To see how I did it visit "The Blue Birdhouse".

Before you head over there....what is your favorite color combination?

Favorite Skirt

You know....that one thing you could wear every single day?
This skirt was an exciting thrift store find. I love it because its corduroy, it is extremely comfortable, its not to long so I can wear it on rainy days and something I did not know when I bought it.....I have lots of different tops I can wear it with!

I also tried a new hair style today... What do you think?

What is your favorite thing in your closet?

Purple & Yellow

I tend to be a matchy-matchy when I saw the challenge "color clock" on Modern Modesty I was a bit stumped. At first I paired some really bright colors together: yellow, hot pink and bright turquoise.

That was a bit much for me so I did this: white, purple, yellow and blue. 

After my "photo session" I came home and started snipping at this yellow cardigan....and now it fits perfectly....and got some ruffled sleeves too....tutorial coming. ☺

How bold do you get when it comes to color blocking?

Refashioned Turtleneck to Ruffleneck

I think these are some fun fall colors. I am really liking this chocolate brown skirt and I know you'll be seeing it quite often in future posts.
 The shirt I got a REALLY long time ago. I decided to do things a pit different and tuck in the shirt and use one of my colorful new scarf as a belt. 
Is that something you would do?

She is really really good! Does lots of refashions and here is a great way to make a turtleneck look cute. I'll be looking at the thriftstore for a nice turtleneck.

I refashioned the shirt from a short sleeve turtleneck. I hadn't worn it in a long time but now.... things just might change. You can see the tutorial on {The Blue Birdhouse}
