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.

color play vol. 22

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

As much as I hate to admit it, fall weather and fall fashion is already on my mind. I know, I know…we have plenty of weeks of gorgeously warm days ahead of us, but I can already feel fall in the air! This look would transition quite nicely into colder months with a pair of black ankle boots, a jacket and a hand-knit beanie (this one is on my list). Now ignore everything I just said and put on a sundress and go to the park! :)
