Hi friends! I’ve recently started sharing a few sewing tutorials over on the YouTube channel, and I thought I’d start to post them here on the blog as well. Several of you have expressed interest in learning how to sew or in getting back into making your own clothes, so I hope you find these videos helpful and inspiring! Today’s project? A pleated midi skirt! This particular skirt was inspired by one I saw at Club Monaco a while back, and I love how it turned out. There is no pattern required, and it would be a great beginning project.
As much as I’m looking forward to the fall season, this year I can actually say that I will miss summer clothes! Usually I’m a fall and winter kind of girl in the wardrobe department, but this summer I was able to put together outfits I loved and learn a bit more about my personal style in the warmer months. Today I thought it would be fun to look back and round up my most worn pieces of the summer season in a video. I have five articles of clothing to share with you with a few accessories thrown in for good measure!
Each year when the weather warms up, my style goes through a shift towards all things flowing, billowy, ruffled, and romantic. Sizzling summer days conjure up visions of 1970s music festivals and the Victorian revival styles that have always had a place in my heart. My more minimal basics move to the back of the wardrobe to make way for white lace blouses, floral dresses, and flowing maxi skirts. And speaking of flowing maxi skirts, let’s talk about the lilac-hued number I’m wearing in this post!
February always passes quickly since it’s such a short month, but this year it was so full of activity that it rushed by at an even greater speed! Today I’ll be sharing some of the highlights of my month that are both personal and blog related. Stick around to the end of this post for a little peek at some of my March plans as well as my February favorites video!
But first, here are the memories that brought me joy this month.
When I first started making the switch to ethical and sustainable fashion, I knew in the back of my mind that I was wanting to add a classic watch to my wardrobe. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find what I was looking for in the world of sustainable brands, and after an initial internet search left me with only wooden and cork options, I was a little discouraged. I knew I wanted something with a classic round face that was built to last, and had a chic and elegant feel.
