eep!

I’ve already told you how much I love this bag, but I can’t help but underscore how thrilled I am with its versatility. I bought it for an upcoming trip that will involve lots of walking and I wanted my hands free while we explore. I love that it was designed as a backpack but that can be worn over the shoulder, as well. Too good. Now I just have to figure out what else to pack for our vacation that starts this Friday! Eep!

frankendress

This dress was an experiment that ended up working out (some of my experiments do not.) I should back up a bit…I made this dress. Are you sensing a theme here? I’ve been making a lot of clothes recently, but more on that later. This dress is a combination of various dress patterns that I love, which is why I’ve lovingly named it the Frankendress. Pattern and outfit details below!

test drive

I purchased the backpack you see in this post for an upcoming trip my husband and I are taking to Santa Fe, New Mexico. As you can see, I couldn’t resist taking it for a test drive. I’m loving the versatility of this 1980s piece. I can see it during the day as a backpack carrying only the essentials as we explore various parts of New Mexico. I can see it out at night over the shoulder with a simple black dress. If you all have any recommendations for places to visit while we’re in New Mexico, we’ll be in Taos for a few days and then Santa Fe.

not sure you noticed

Simple earthy shades of beige, tan and gray work so well during these last days of summer. I’m going to miss this sunshine and the light color palette it affords, but, then again, I really like bundling up in all black. Not sure if you noticed that.

Like I said, summer isn’t over yet. I’m loving this combination of pastel pink, aqua blue and shades of beige.
