Ceci n'est pas une bicyclette

This skirt has seen a lot of off-blog weekend wear, but hasn't yet shown up here. I've done a lot of solid tee with high-waisted skirt, and I liked how a graphic tee sort of switched things up (hey, baby steps for my vanilla closet!). I love the pattern on this cloth so much I'm thinking of swooping some more up to make as presents for friends with June birthdays.

Ceci n'est pas une bicyclette

Today is going so much better than yesterday--and it made me feel a lot better to read all your comments about those bad mornings, so thank you :) Hope you have a great weekend!

P.S. There's still time to enter the giveaway to win a watch.
P.P.S. I have a formspring now and I'll answer questions there, if you have them.

I love your outfit! That shirt is just so darling, I'm tempted to run over to UO to pick one up for myself. Heading over to formspring to read questions and your responses!

That pattern is fantastic!! Where do you buy fabric/what kind do you buy?

I love those wedges and I'm pissed Clarks doesn't have a vegan version!

@anna: i've just been getting fabric at joanne's (it's really the only place in town), and this skirt is just made of 100% cotton. i would buy fabric online, but i haven't gotten around to it!

Rachel said...

You look so, so great. This is one of my all-time favorites--I'm a big fan of mixing the graphic tee with the patterned skirt. Are you wearing lip color?

Tanvi said...

You look lovely here ... the tee is a really good grab! Goes perfect with your printed tee shirt!

Larysse Tavares said...

This tee is just lovely for bike-riding girl. And I am really jealous of your sewing gift, haha, I want to sew some skirts myself too. :)

Have an excellent weekend and check my blog out if you like Brazilian popular music!

Beijos!

@julie: aw, you're the best!
nope, no lip color, but it's 105 degrees here...maybe that's making me pinker?

Amy said...

Everything about this outfit is perfect. Especially the skirt. I love it.

Was that, by chance, made with the DIY pattern you posted? Or is this a different one?

Very nice! I love this t-shirt, I saw it at UO awhile ago but never ended up getting it.. And the skirt is too cute! I think it goes well with the tee.
