Thank you for all your sweet comments yesterday--they totally brightened my day! Since a few of you asked, the orange skirt yesterday was made of silk...or maybe polyester pretending to be silk. And yes, I totally copied this J. Crew skirt again, to great success (thanks, Elena!). I will put up a tutorial on how to do the covered elastic waist once finals week is over--but it's not hard and mostly I used Susan's pattern with a few alterations. I'm an inexperienced and generally lazy sewer, so I swear you can do it, too. Today I'm wearing the last of the three skirts I made the other weekend (see one and two).
I'm feeling so-so about today's outfit even though I generally like the mix of chambray and flowers. I think the issue is this shirt looks great on the hanger but even though it's an XS, it is HUGE (Kendi, do you have the same issue?). If I don't wrap and tuck it in, I look like a mildly pregnant cowgirl. And surprisingly, this isn't as cute as it sounds.
