    Gingham circle skirt, ice cream print, and a cherry on top

    I shared little snippets on Instagram when I was making this gingham circle skirt, and I have been dying to actually do an outfit post with it, because I┬álove it. Even though I made a few mistakes and it’s kind of imperfect, I don’t care. It’s everything I hoped it would be! This skirt was a test run for a circle skirt I plan to make from T.A.R.D.I.S. fabric I found at Joann’s (also I just saw this fabric, and now I need it too), because I really didn’t want to jump right in on expensive fabric, and I didn’t follow any online tutorials for making a circle skirt. I’m…

    Silver Propet shoes, florals, and stripes

    I am very excited to review and show you the second pair of Propet shoes, which are a pretty silver flat with laser cutouts. These, as they suggested, do fit much better in the toe and are every bit as adorable and comfortable as the leopard print ones. I actually really love silver as a flat, too; I find that I rarely wear black shoes, but white tends to get very scuffed, and I’m not in favor of a nude shoe ever. So silver is a great substitute neutral. I love that these have the cutouts in them; it’s perfect for what I’m guessing is going to be a very…

    Stripes, a circle skirt, and leopard print shoes

    A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a company called Propet who specialize in podiatrist-designed shoes, and who had just launched a newer line called Rejuve that they were hoping I’d like to try. The representative who contacted me is also from Washington, which attracted me, plus she was incredibly sweet and helpful. After scanning the shoe line, I decided to go for it because 1. I am pregnant and need comfortable shoes, 2. they actually offer some that I think are um… stylish, which is not something you usually associate with orthopedic shoes, and 3. practical, comfortable, and stylish shoes are really, really hard to find. I didn’t…

    Inspired outfit/Book Review: The Flight of Gemma Hardy

    I grabbed this book at a garage sale because 1. I liked the cover, 2. I’m looking for new books to read and can’t get to the library often, and 3. I very quickly skimmed the first few sentences of the summary and it sounded interesting. I started reading it that night, and was immediately struck by how very similar to Jane Eyre it was, which confused me for a second as the part of the summary I’d read didn’t mention it being a retelling. So I scanned the back again, and there at the top as a review for the book was the statement: “In The Flight of Gemma…
