In an attempt to return to blogging, I'm breaking up my Laurel Hill post into two. The first post was the cemetery itself and all the gorgeous things I saw. Next is the #ootd portion of the day.
I've been very proud of my outfits recently. I'm beginning to feel more comfortable in my style and less self-conscious, and it really helps that I'm making things I'm utterly mad about. I love all the clothes I'm wearing! Last week was such a treasure, too, because I went out with friends which means I had an excuse to dress up.
Tracy took this pic after we'd finished being ghosts and went to a local diner for some lunch. She's friends with the girls that made my cell phone sticker (Rainbow Alternative) and wanted a picture of me holding it. I'm happy she took it because I worked really hard to get my hair cute! I braided my bangs to the side and pinned the rest back from my face. I felt super adorable!
I love this tunic. This was the first ever Calliope tunic that I made. It's a neon yellow Ireland T-Shirt with a striped knit blouse and a favorite fabric scrap along the bottom. I appliqued the little shamrock from the original tee on the front. It's worn here with my new favorite Minnetonkas, my ON Rockstar Jeggings and a favorite denim jacket.
I had this jacket on at Target and I got compliments on my 'awesome pins'. It was pretty sweet to hear!
Tracy also snapped these two action shots of me. She's the sweetest!
I felt so pretty in this outfit. I wish that jobs were more relaxed with their dress codes because I would wear stuff like this every day and feel so much better about myself. In regular clothes, for whatever reason, I just feel awful, but in weirdo patchy tunics with rolled up jeans I felt alive.
Here's to more days spent feeling like that.
I love this look! I wish I could find a job where my tattoos were an asset, not a cover up. I love your tunic, and I know I love love all the pieces you've made me.ReplyDelete
"super adorable" -- you took the words out of my mouth!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you had such a great day! You do look super adorable-great hair and fantastic outfit. I would totally wear all of that even if I am too old. I LOVE the tunic and your hair is so cute like that. xoxoReplyDelete
This is a lovely post Meg - feeling awesome about your clothes is what life is about really. I kind of get what you mean about "normal" clothes - I can't imagine anything more uncomfortable than wearing jeans and a tee shirt as its so NOT ME. Love the action shots too xoxReplyDelete
